A catch-all email mailbox receives messages sent to non-existent email addresses under the exact same domain. For instance, an email message sent to the misspelled suport@domain.com will go to support@domain.com if the catch-all feature has been enabled for the latter. Thus, you can get email messages from colleagues or clients who may have sent a message to your email address with a spelling error or to an obsolete 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 enabled for such a mailbox. This is so because of the fact that at a certain point you may start receiving spam emails in the catch-all mailbox and the forwarding restriction implies that the spam will not be sent to a 3rd-party mailbox.
Catch-all Emails in Website Hosting
In case you’ve got a Linux website hosting with us and you wish to enable the catch-all functionality for a certain mailbox that you’ve got in the hosting account, it’ll take literally only a mouse click in the Email Manager section of your Hepsia Control Panel to do this. A catch-all button is available next to each email address that you have set up under any domain name hosted in your account. You can choose one address per domain name by clicking on the corresponding button. This will enable the feature instantaneously, so all email messages sent to miswritten email addresses will be delivered there. Clicking the button for a second time will deactivate the catch-all feature. In case you’ve got enabled email forwarding, our system will display a cautionary note and you will not be able to activate the catch-all feature unless you deactivate the forwarding or you can simply select another mailbox to be the catch-all one.
Catch-all Emails in Semi-dedicated Hosting
The catch-all functionality can be enabled without difficulty if you have a semi-dedicated server account with our company. All the email addresses that you have created with the domain names hosted in the semi-dedicated account will be listed in the Hepsia Control Panel’s Email Manager section and you will find a small-size icon handily situated directly next to each one. With only a single mouse click, you can activate or deactivate the catch-all option for any mailbox of your choice on the condition that there isn't another mailbox under that same domain with this option already enabled and there isn't activated email forwarding. Alternatively, you can right-click on a mailbox and enable this option through the context menu that will show up. If any of the prerequisites for configuring a catch-all mailbox is not met, our system will inform you, but will not replace or deactivate anything automatically.
