A catch-all email mailbox receives emails sent to invalid addresses under the very same domain. For example, a message sent to the mistyped suport@domain.com will be delivered to support@domain.com in case the catch-all feature has been activated for the latter. Thus, you can receive messages from friends or clients who may have sent a message to your email address with a typographical error or to an old one, which they may still have, but you have already deleted. Only one single mailbox per domain name can be a catch-all one and email forwarding cannot be set up for such a mailbox. This is due to the fact that at a certain moment you may start receiving spam email messages in the catch-all mailbox and the forwarding restriction implies that the spam will not be sent to a third-party mailbox.
Catch-all Emails in Website Hosting
You will be able to configure a catch-all mailbox with ease if you’ve got a website hosting account with our company. The Email Manager tool in our in-house developed Hepsia Control Panel is fully featured, yet surprisingly easy to work with, and it will enable you to enable various features, including the catch-all one, with just several clicks. All the email addresses that you have set up will be listed in alphabetical order in this section and on the right side of each one of them you will find a tiny "Catch-all" sign. Clicking on it once will activate this option, clicking on it again will deactivate it. As you can have only one such mailbox per domain, our system will warn you if you already have a different one with this feature activated or if you’ve got enabled email forwarding.
Catch-all Emails in Semi-dedicated Servers
A catch-all email address can be configured with several mouse clicks if you’ve got a semi-dedicated server with us. The hosting account will be managed through our custom-developed Hepsia hosting Control Panel and you will be able to create mailboxes with any domain name hosted there. To enable the catch-all option for a particular mailbox, you’ll have to click on the sign with the exact same name, which will be next to each mailbox. Disabling this functionality can be accomplished in the same manner and will not take more than a click either. In case a catch-all mailbox has already been enabled for a specific domain, you’ll get a warning. The same goes if the mailbox that you’d like to be a catch-all one has email forwarding enabled, as our system will never disable or modify any feature automatically.
