A catch-all email mailbox receives email messages sent to invalid email addresses under the very same domain name. For instance, an email 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 receive messages from partners or customers who may have sent a message to your email address with a spelling mistake or to an obsolete one, which they may still have, but you have already deactivated. Just one single mailbox per domain name 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 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

In case you host a domain on our cloud web hosting platform and you have a shared hosting account, you will be able to enable the catch-all functionality for any mailbox that you set up under the domain name. The Hepsia hosting Control Panel’s Email Manager section offers quite a few functions, but it’s incredibly simple to work with, so configuring a catch-all mailbox requires just a click of the mouse. All the email addresses that you have set up will be displayed in this section in alphabetical order and you’ll only need to click on the "Catch-all" button for the particular email address. Our system will inform you if there is already another catch-all mailbox activated for that domain name or if the one that you would like to be a catch-all mailbox has email forwarding enabled, so you can either turn off the latter feature or choose a different mailbox. Disabling the catch-all feature is just as easy and takes yet another mouse click on the very same button.

Catch-all Emails in Semi-dedicated Hosting

A catch-all address can be configured with several mouse clicks in case you’ve got a Linux semi-dedicated hosting package with our company. The hosting account will be managed through our in-house developed Hepsia hosting Control Panel and you’ll be able to set up email addresses under any domain hosted there. To enable the catch-all feature for a certain mailbox, you’ll have to click the button with the same name, which will be on the right-hand side of each mailbox. Deactivating this feature can be achieved in the same fashion and will not require more than one click either. In case the catch-all functionality has already been activated for a certain domain name, you’ll receive a warning note. 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 modify any feature automatically.
