A catch-all mailbox receives messages sent to invalid addresses under the same domain name. For example, an email message sent to the miswritten [email protected] will go to [email protected] in case the catch-all feature has been activated for the latter. In this way, you can get email messages from pals or clients who may have sent a message to your email address with a typographical error or to an outdated one, which they may still have, but you have already deactivated. Just one single mailbox per domain can be a catch-all one and email forwarding cannot be set up for such a mailbox. This is due to the fact that at a certain point you may begin receiving spam messages in the catch-all mailbox and the forwarding restriction implies that the spam will not be sent to a 3rd-party mailbox.
Catch-all Emails in Shared Website Hosting
Creating a catch-all mailbox will be remarkably easy if you’ve got a shared website hosting package with our company. You can activate this option through our powerful, albeit simple-to-use Email Manager, which is included in the Hepsia hosting Control Panel, via which you will administer the shared web hosting account itself. You’ll find all the email addresses that you have created listed alphabetically and to the right of each of them there will be a mini "Catch-all" icon, which will instantly reveal to you if a specific mailbox gets all the emails for a given domain name or not. With one click on the icon you can activate or deactivate this option whenever you wish. In case there’s active email forwarding or if some other mailbox has already been set up as a catch-all one for a particular domain name, you will get a warning message from our system. The latter will not deactivate/replace anything automatically and without your permission.
Catch-all Emails in Semi-dedicated Hosting
The catch-all feature can be activated without any effort in case you have a semi-dedicated server plan with our company. All the email addresses that you’ve set up with the domains hosted in the account will be shown in the Hepsia Control Panel’s Email Manager section and you will find a small sign handily located right next to each one of them. With just one click of the mouse, you can enable or disable the catch-all option for any mailbox of your desire as long as there isn't another mailbox under that same domain with this option already enabled and there isn't active email forwarding. Instead, you can right-click on a mailbox and enable this option using the context menu that will come into sight. In case any of the conditions for setting up a catch-all mailbox is not fulfilled, our system will notify you, but will not disable or replace anything automatically.
