A catch-all mailbox receives emails sent to inactive email addresses under the same domain name. For example, a message sent to the miswritten suport@domain.com will go to support@domain.com if the catch-all feature has been enabled for the latter. In this way, you can get email messages from acquaintances or clients who may have sent a message to your email address with a typographical error or to an obsolete one, which they may still have, but you have already deleted. Just one mailbox per domain name can be a catch-all one and email forwarding cannot be activated for such a mailbox. This is so because of the fact that at some point you may begin receiving spam messages in the catch-all mailbox and the forwarding restriction implies that the spam will not be sent to a 3rd-party mailbox.

Catch-all Emails in Shared Web Hosting

In case you host a domain on our cloud web hosting platform and you have a shared web hosting account, you’ll be able to activate the catch-all functionality for any e-mailbox that you create under the domain. The Email Manager section of the Hepsia hosting Control Panel comes with quite a few features, but it is really intuitive, so configuring a catch-all mailbox takes only a single click of the mouse. All the email addresses that you’ve created will be listed in this section alphabetically and you’ll just need to click on the "Catch-all" button for the respective email address. Our system will inform you if there is already another catch-all mailbox enabled for that domain name or if the one that you would like to be a catch-all mailbox has email forwarding activated, so you can either turn off the latter feature or pick a different mailbox. Disabling the catch-all option is just as simple and takes one more mouse click on the exact same button.

Catch-all Emails in Semi-dedicated Hosting

A catch-all address can be created with several mouse clicks in case you’ve got a Linux semi-dedicated hosting package with our company. The semi-dedicated account will be managed through our custom-created Hepsia Control Panel and you’ll be able to set up email addresses using any domain registered here. To enable the catch-all feature for a given mailbox, you’ll have to click the sign with the same name, which will be next to each mailbox. Disabling this feature can be achieved in the same manner and will not require more than a click either. If a catch-all mailbox has already been activated for a particular domain name, you’ll get a warning alert. The same goes if the mailbox that you wish to be a catch-all one has email forwarding enabled, as our system will never deactivate or alter anything automatically.
