A catch-all email mailbox receives emails sent to nonexistent email addresses under the very same domain name. For example, an email message sent to the mistyped suport@domain.com will go to support@domain.com in case the catch-all feature has been enabled for the latter. Thus, you can get emails from friends or clients who may have sent a message to your email address with a typographical error or to an old one, which they may still have, but you have already disabled. Only one single mailbox per domain name can be a catch-all one and email forwarding cannot be enabled for such a mailbox. This is due to the fact that at some point you may begin receiving spam emails in the catch-all mailbox and the forwarding limitation means that the spam will not be delivered to a 3rd-party mailbox.
Catch-all Emails in Shared Web Hosting
If you’ve got a shared web hosting plan with our company and you wish to enable the catch-all functionality for a specific email mailbox that you have in your hosting account, it’ll take literally just a click in the Email Manager section of your Hepsia Control Panel to accomplish this. A catch-all button is available to the right of each email address that you have created under any domain registered in the account. You can choose one email address per domain name by clicking on the corresponding button. This will activate the feature instantly, so all emails sent to miswritten addresses will be received there. Clicking on the button again will turn off the catch-all feature. In case you have activated email forwarding, our system will show a cautionary note and you will not be able to enable the catch-all feature till you remove the forwarding or you can simply select some other mailbox to be the catch-all one.
Catch-all Emails in Semi-dedicated Servers
You’ll be able to set up a catch-all email address with no more than a click if you have a Linux semi-dedicated server with our company and your emails are handled by our cloud platform. All the addresses that you create with any domain name hosted in the semi-dedicated hosting account will be displayed in the Email Manager section of your Hepsia Control Panel. Each of them will have a small "Catch-all" icon next to it, so all it will take to enable this functionality will be to click on that icon. In the exact same fashion you’ll be able to disable the feature, in case you don’t need it any longer. Our system will inform you in case you are trying to enable a second catch-all email address for a certain domain or in case there is activated email forwarding, but it will never disable or change anything automatically or without your approval.
