A catch-all mailbox receives emails sent to nonexistent addresses under the same domain. For example, a message sent to the miswritten suport@domain.com will be delivered to support@domain.com in case the catch-all feature has been enabled for the latter. Thus, you can get email messages from acquaintances or clients who may have sent a message to your email address with a spelling mistake or to an old one, which they may still have, but you have already disabled. Just one single mailbox per domain can be a catch-all one and email forwarding cannot be activated for such a mailbox. This is due to the fact that at a certain point you may start receiving spam email messages in the catch-all mailbox and the forwarding restriction implies that the spam will not be redirected to a 3rd-party mailbox.
Catch-all Emails in Cloud Web Hosting
If you have a Linux cloud web hosting service with our company and you wish to enable the catch-all functionality for a specific e-mailbox that you have in your hosting account, it’ll take literally only a single mouse click in the Email Manager section of your Hepsia hosting Control Panel to accomplish this. A catch-all button is available on the right side of each and every email address that you have created under any domain name hosted in your account. You can choose one email address per domain by clicking on the corresponding button. This will activate the feature right away, so all messages sent to miswritten addresses will be re-sent there. Clicking the button once more will deactivate the catch-all feature. If you’ve got enabled email forwarding, our system will display a cautionary notification and you won’t be able to activate the catch-all feature till you disable the forwarding or you can simply pick a different 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 one click in case you’ve got a semi-dedicated hosting service with us and your email messages are handled by our cloud web hosting platform. All the addresses that you set up using any domain name hosted in the semi-dedicated hosting account will be enumerated in the Hepsia hosting Control Panel’s Email Manager section. Each of them will have a small-size "Catch-all" icon next to it, so all it will take to enable this feature will be to click on that icon. In the same manner you’ll be able to disable the feature, in case you no longer need it. Our system will let you know if you’re attempting to enable a second catch-all email address for a given domain name or if there is enabled email forwarding, but it’ll never modify or deactivate any feature automatically and without your permission.
