A catch-all mailbox receives messages sent to inactive email addresses under the same domain name. For example, an email sent to the mistyped suport@domain.com will go to support@domain.com in case the catch-all feature has been enabled for the latter. Thus, you can receive messages from pals 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 deactivated. Just one single mailbox per domain can be a catch-all one and email forwarding cannot be enabled for such a mailbox. This is so because of the fact that at a certain point you may begin receiving spam email messages in the catch-all mailbox and the forwarding limitation implies that the spam will not be delivered to a third-party mailbox.
Catch-all Emails in Shared Website Hosting
You will be able to configure a catch-all mailbox without any difficulty if you’ve got a shared website hosting plan with us. The Email Manager in our in-house developed Hepsia Control Panel is fully featured, yet very intuitive, and it will enable you to enable various features, including the catch-all one, with only several clicks of the mouse. All the mailboxes that you have set up will be displayed in alphabetical order in this section and on the right side of each of them you will notice a tiny "Catch-all" sign. Clicking on it once will activate this feature, clicking it once more will disable it. As you can have only one such mailbox per domain, our system will notify you if you already have another mailbox with this option activated or if you’ve got enabled email forwarding.
Catch-all Emails in Semi-dedicated Hosting
A catch-all email address can be configured with a few clicks of the mouse if you have a Linux semi-dedicated package with our company. The hosting account will be administered via our in-house created Hepsia hosting Control Panel and you will be able to create mailboxes under any domain hosted there. To activate the catch-all feature for a certain mailbox, you will need to click the logo with the same name, which will be on the right-hand side of each mailbox. Deactivating this functionality can be accomplished in the very same fashion and will not require more than one click either. If a catch-all mailbox has already been activated for a certain domain, you will get a warning notification. The same is valid if the mailbox that you would like to be a catch-all one has email forwarding enabled, as our system will never deactivate or replace anything automatically.
