A catch-all mailbox receives email messages sent to inactive addresses under the exact same domain. For instance, an email sent to the miswritten 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 partners or clients who may have sent a message to your email address with a spelling mistake or to an old one, which they may still have, but you have already disabled. Only one mailbox per domain can be a catch-all one and email forwarding cannot be set up for such a mailbox. This is so because of the fact that at some point you may start receiving spam messages in the catch-all mailbox and the forwarding restriction implies that the spam will not be received in a third-party mailbox.
Catch-all Emails in Shared Hosting
Setting up a catch-all email mailbox will be remarkably easy in case you’ve got a Linux shared hosting with us. You can enable this option through our advanced, albeit easy-to-use Email Manager tool, which is integrated into the Hepsia Control Panel, via which you’ll manage the shared web hosting account itself. You’ll find all the email addresses that you have created enumerated alphabetically and on the right side of each of them there will be a mini "Catch-all" icon, which will quickly inform you if a certain mailbox gets all the email messages associated with a certain domain name or not. With a single click on the icon you can activate or deactivate this feature at any time. In case there’s active email forwarding or if another mailbox has already been configured as a catch-all one for a given domain name, you’ll get a warning message from our system. The latter will not disable/replace anything automatically and without your approval.
Catch-all Emails in Semi-dedicated Hosting
You’ll be able to set up a catch-all address with no more than one click in case you’ve got a Linux semi-dedicated hosting with our company and your email messages are handled by our cloud web hosting platform. All the mailboxes that you create with any domain hosted in the semi-dedicated hosting account will be shown in the Hepsia Control Panel’s Email Manager section. Each of them will have a tiny "Catch-all" icon on its right-hand side, so all it will take to enable this option will be to click that icon. In the same manner you’ll be able to deactivate the feature, in case you do not need it any longer. Our system will warn you if you’re attempting to activate a 2nd catch-all email address for a given domain name or if there’s activated email forwarding, but it’ll never change or disable any feature automatically or without your consent.
