A catch-all mailbox receives emails sent to inactive email addresses under the same domain name. For example, an email 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. Thus, you can get messages from partners or customers who may have sent a message to your email address with a spelling error or to an out-of-date one, which they may still have, but you have already deactivated. Only one single mailbox per domain 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 some point you may begin receiving spam email messages in the catch-all mailbox and the forwarding limitation implies that the spam will not be re-sent to a third-party mailbox.
Catch-all Emails in Cloud Hosting
In case you have a Linux cloud hosting package with us and you want to activate the catch-all functionality for a particular e-mailbox that you have in the hosting account, it will take literally only a mouse click in the Email Manager section of your Hepsia Control Panel to accomplish that. A catch-all button is available on the right side of each email address that you have set up under any domain registered in the account. You can pick one single address per domain name by clicking the corresponding button. This will enable the feature instantly, so all messages sent to misspelled email addresses will be received there. Clicking the button for a second time will deactivate the catch-all feature. In case you’ve got activated email forwarding, our system will exhibit a cautionary notice and you won’t be able to enable the catch-all feature till you remove the forwarding or you can simply choose another mailbox to be the catch-all one.
Catch-all Emails in Semi-dedicated Hosting
You’ll be able to set up a catch-all email address with no more than a click in case you’ve got a semi-dedicated package with us and your emails are handled by our cloud hosting platform. All the email addresses that you create using any domain name hosted in the semi-dedicated hosting account will be enumerated in the Email Manager section of your Hepsia hosting Control Panel. Each of them will have a small-size "Catch-all" icon next to it, so all it will take to activate the feature will be to click that icon. In the very same fashion you’ll be able to deactivate the feature, if you don’t need it anymore. Our system will warn you in case you’re trying to activate a 2nd catch-all email address for a given domain or in case there’s activated email forwarding, but it will never disable or alter any feature automatically or without your consent.
