A catch-all mailbox receives email messages sent to nonexistent email addresses under the same domain name. For instance, an email message sent to the mistyped suport@domain.com will be delivered to support@domain.com in case the catch-all feature has been enabled for the latter. Thus, you can get messages from pals or clients who may have sent a message to your email address with a typo or to an obsolete one, which they may still have, but you have already deactivated. 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 a certain moment you may start receiving spam email messages in the catch-all mailbox and the forwarding restriction means that the spam will not be re-sent to a 3rd-party mailbox.

Catch-all Emails in Hosting

In case you host a domain on our cloud hosting platform and you have a hosting account, you’ll be able to activate the catch-all feature for any email mailbox that you set up under the domain. The Hepsia hosting Control Panel’s Email Manager section comes with quite a lot of functions, but it’s really intuitive, so setting up a catch-all mailbox requires just a mouse click. All the email addresses that you have will be listed in this section alphabetically and you will just have to click on the "Catch-all" button associated with the specific address. Our system will inform you if there’s already another catch-all mailbox enabled for that domain name or if the one that you want to be a catch-all mailbox has email forwarding activated, so you can either deactivate the latter feature or pick a different mailbox. Disabling the catch-all option is just as easy and takes yet another mouse click on the very same button.

Catch-all Emails in Semi-dedicated Servers

A catch-all address can be created with a couple of clicks if you’ve got a semi-dedicated server with our company. The semi-dedicated hosting account will be managed via our custom-created Hepsia Control Panel and you will be able to create email addresses with any domain registered there. To enable the catch-all functionality for a given mailbox, you’ll need to click the symbol with the exact same name, which will be next to each mailbox. Disabling this option can be accomplished in the same manner and will not require more than one click either. In case a catch-all mailbox has already been activated for a specific domain name, you will get a warning notice. The same is valid if the mailbox that you want to be a catch-all one has email forwarding enabled, as our system will never edit or disable any feature automatically.
