A catch-all mailbox receives emails sent to nonexistent addresses under the same domain name. For instance, a message sent to the misspelled suport@domain.com will go to support@domain.com in case the catch-all feature has been enabled for the latter. In this way, you can get emails from buddies or clients who may have sent a message to your email address with a spelling mistake or to an outdated one, which they may still have, but you have already deleted. Just one single mailbox per domain name can be a catch-all one and email forwarding cannot be set up for such a mailbox. This is so because of the fact that at some moment you may begin receiving spam emails in the catch-all mailbox and the forwarding limitation means that the spam will not be redirected to a third-party mailbox.
Catch-all Emails in Cloud Hosting
In case you’ve got a Linux cloud package with our company and you want to activate the catch-all option for a given email mailbox that you’ve got in the web hosting account, it will take literally just a single click in the Email Manager section of your Hepsia hosting Control Panel to achieve that. A catch-all button is available next to each email address that you have created under any domain name registered in the account. You can choose one address per domain by clicking the corresponding button. This will activate the feature instantaneously, so all emails sent to misspelled email addresses will be received there. Clicking on the button for a second time will deactivate the catch-all feature. In case you’ve got active email forwarding, our system will display a cautionary notification and you won’t be able to activate the catch-all feature unless you remove the forwarding or you can simply choose another mailbox to be the catch-all one.
Catch-all Emails in Semi-dedicated Hosting
The in-house built Hepsia hosting Control Panel that comes with each and every semi-dedicated server package that we’re offering will allow you to set up a catch-all email mailbox without any efforts even in case you don’t have much web/email hosting experience. All it takes to accomplish that is to click on the catch-all icon, which will be next to each email address that you’ve set up with your domains in the hosting Control Panel’s Email Manager section. As you can have only one single mailbox with this feature per domain, our system will let you know if you’ve already set up another catch-all mailbox or if the one that you want to use has email forwarding activated. If you decide that you don’t need this feature anymore, you can deactivate it by clicking once again on the exact same icon. The Email Manager section will also allow you to view your catch-all mailboxes at a glance.
