A catch-all email mailbox receives emails sent to nonexistent email addresses under the exact same domain name. For instance, a message sent to the mistyped suport@domain.com will go to support@domain.com if the catch-all feature has been activated for the latter. In this way, you can get messages from partners or customers who may have sent a message to your email address with a typographical error or to an out-of-date one, which they may still have, but you have already deactivated. Only one single mailbox per domain name can be a catch-all one and email forwarding cannot be set up for such a mailbox. The latter is due to the fact that at some point you may begin receiving spam messages in the catch-all mailbox and the forwarding limitation implies that the spam will not be delivered to a 3rd-party mailbox.
Catch-all Emails in Shared Hosting
If you’ve got a shared hosting plan with our company and you want to activate the catch-all feature for a given e-mailbox that you’ve got in the account, it’ll take literally only one mouse click in the Email Manager section of your Hepsia hosting Control Panel to do that. A catch-all button is available to the right of each and every email address that you have created under any domain name registered in your account. You can select one address per domain name by clicking the corresponding button. This will enable the feature momentarily, so all messages sent to mistyped addresses will be received there. Clicking the button for a second time will deactivate the catch-all feature. In case you’ve got activated email forwarding, our system will exhibit a cautionary message and you will not be able to enable the catch-all feature unless you deactivate the forwarding or you can simply pick a different mailbox to be the catch-all one.
Catch-all Emails in Semi-dedicated Servers
A catch-all address can be set up with a couple of clicks of the mouse in case you have a semi-dedicated plan with us. The hosting account will be administered through our in-house created Hepsia Control Panel and you’ll be able to set up email addresses under any domain name registered here. To enable the catch-all feature for a particular mailbox, you will need to click the logo with the exact same name, which will be on the right side of each mailbox. Deactivating this option can be achieved in the exact same fashion and will not take more than a click either. If the catch-all option has already been activated for a specific domain, you’ll get a warning note. The same goes if the mailbox that you want to be a catch-all one has email forwarding activated, as our system will never change or disable any feature automatically.
