A catch-all email mailbox receives emails sent to invalid email addresses under the exact same domain name. For instance, a message sent to the miswritten suport@domain.com will go to support@domain.com in case the catch-all feature has been activated for the latter. In this way, you can get email messages from friends or customers who may have sent a message to your email address with a spelling error or to an outdated one, which they may still have, but you have already disabled.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 enabled for such a mailbox. This is due to the fact that at some point you may start receiving spam emails in the catch-all mailbox and the forwarding restriction implies that the spam will not be re-sent to a third-party mailbox.
Catch-all Emails in Cloud Website Hosting
You’ll be able to create a catch-all mailbox with ease if you’ve got a cloud website hosting plan with us. The Email Manager tool in our custom-created Hepsia Control Panel is full-featured, yet extremely easy to use, and it will enable you to enable different options, including the catch-all one, with just a few clicks of the mouse. All the email addresses that you’ve set up will be enumerated alphabetically in this section and to the right of each one of them you will see a mini "Catch-all" sign. Clicking on it once will activate this feature, clicking on it again will disable it. As you can have just one such catch-all mailbox per domain name, our system will notify you if you already have a different one with this option enabled or if you’ve got activated email forwarding.
Catch-all Emails in Semi-dedicated Hosting
A catch-all address can be created with a few clicks of the mouse in case you’ve got a Linux semi-dedicated package with us. The semi-dedicated hosting account will be administered via our in-house built Hepsia Control Panel and you’ll be able to create email addresses using any domain hosted there. To enable the catch-all functionality for a particular mailbox, you will need to click on the icon with the exact same name, which will be on the right side of each email address. Disabling this option can be done in the very same way and will not require more than one click either. In case the catch-all option has already been enabled for a given domain name, you will get a notification. The same is valid if the mailbox that you wish to be a catch-all one has email forwarding enabled, as our system will never modify or disable any feature automatically.
