A catch-all mailbox receives messages sent to invalid email addresses under the very same domain. For instance, a message sent to the mistyped suport@domain.com will be delivered to support@domain.com if the catch-all feature has been activated for the latter. Thus, you can receive messages from buddies 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 deactivated. Just one mailbox per domain name can be a catch-all one and email forwarding cannot be activated for such a mailbox. The latter is due to the fact that at a certain moment you may begin receiving spam messages in the catch-all mailbox and the forwarding limitation means that the spam will not be redirected to a 3rd-party mailbox.
Catch-all Emails in Website Hosting
If you’ve got a Linux website hosting service with our company and you’d like to activate the catch-all option for a particular mailbox that you’ve got in your hosting account, it’ll take literally just a single mouse click in the Email Manager section of your Hepsia hosting Control Panel to achieve that. A catch-all button is available on the right side of each email address that you have set up under any domain name hosted in your account. You can pick one single email address per domain by clicking the respective button. This will enable the feature immediately, so all emails sent to mistyped addresses will be received there. Clicking on the button once again will deactivate the catch-all feature. In case you’ve got activated email forwarding, our system will show a cautionary message and you will not be able to enable the catch-all feature until you deactivate the forwarding or you can simply select a different mailbox to be the catch-all one.
Catch-all Emails in Semi-dedicated Hosting
The catch-all option can be activated easily in case you have a semi-dedicated server account with us. All the email addresses that you have created using the domains hosted in the semi-dedicated account will be shown in the Hepsia Control Panel’s Email Manager section and you will notice a small logo conveniently situated directly next to each one. With only one single click of the mouse, you can activate or deactivate the catch-all option for any mailbox of your desire provided that there isn't another mailbox under the same domain name with this option already activated and there isn't activated email forwarding. Instead, you can right-click on an email address and activate this feature through the menu that will come into sight. If any of the conditions for creating a catch-all mailbox is not matched, our system will let you know, but will not disable or replace anything automatically.
