A catch-all mailbox receives email messages sent to invalid addresses under the very same domain name. For example, an email 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 acquaintances or customers who may have sent a message to your email address with a typo or to an old one, which they may still have, but you have already disabled. Only one single mailbox per domain name can be a catch-all one and email forwarding cannot be activated for such a mailbox. This is due to the fact that at some moment you may begin receiving spam messages in the catch-all mailbox and the forwarding limitation implies that the spam will not be redirected to a third-party mailbox.
Catch-all Emails in Shared Website Hosting
You’ll be able to create a catch-all e-mailbox with ease if you’ve got a shared website hosting plan with us. The Email Manager in our in-house built Hepsia Control Panel is full-featured, yet amazingly intuitive, and it will permit you to activate different options, including the catch-all one, with no more than several mouse clicks. All the mailboxes that you’ve set up will be listed alphabetically in this section and next to each of them you’ll see a mini "Catch-all" sign. Clicking it once will enable this feature, clicking it once more will disable it. As you can have only one such catch-all mailbox per domain, our system will warn you if you’ve already got a different one with this feature activated or if you have activated email forwarding.
Catch-all Emails in Semi-dedicated Hosting
The custom-developed Hepsia Control Panel that comes with each semi-dedicated server package that we offer will allow you to configure a catch-all mailbox without any efforts even if you don’t have much email/web hosting experience. All you need to do to accomplish that is click the catch-all icon, which will be on the right side of each mailbox that you’ve created using your domains in the hosting Control Panel’s Email Manager section. Since you can have just one mailbox with this feature per domain name, our system will inform you if you have already created another catch-all mailbox or if the one that you want to use has email forwarding activated. If you reach the decision that you do not want this feature anymore, you can remove it by clicking again on the same icon. The Email Manager will also permit you to see your catch-all mailboxes at a glance.
