A catch-all email mailbox receives messages sent to non-existent addresses under the very same domain. For instance, 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. In this way, you can get messages from friends or clients who may have sent a message to your email address with a typographical error or to an outdated one, which they may still have, but you have already disabled.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 activated for such a mailbox. This is so because of the fact that at a certain moment you may start receiving spam emails in the catch-all mailbox and the forwarding limitation means that the spam will not be received in a third-party mailbox.
Catch-all Emails in Website Hosting
You will be able to set up a catch-all e-mailbox without effort in case you have a website hosting plan with us. The Email Manager in our custom-created Hepsia Control Panel is fully featured, yet stunningly simple to work with, and it will enable you to activate various options, including the catch-all one, with no more than a few clicks of the mouse. All the mailboxes that you have created will be enumerated in alphabetical order in this section and next to each one you’ll notice a tiny "Catch-all" logo. Clicking on it once will activate this option, clicking on it twice will disable it. As you can have just one such mailbox per domain, our system will notify you if you’ve already got another one with this option enabled or if you’ve got enabled email forwarding.
Catch-all Emails in Semi-dedicated Servers
A catch-all address can be created with a few clicks of the mouse if you have a semi-dedicated server with us. The semi-dedicated account will be administered via our custom-built Hepsia hosting Control Panel and you’ll be able to create email addresses with any domain registered there. To activate the catch-all option for a given mailbox, you will have to click on the sign with the exact same name, which will be on the right side of each email address. Deactivating this feature can be accomplished in the very same way and will not take more than one click either. If the catch-all functionality has already been enabled for a specific domain name, you will receive a warning note. The same goes if the mailbox that you would like to be a catch-all one has email forwarding enabled, as our system will never deactivate or alter anything automatically.
