A catch-all email mailbox receives messages sent to nonexistent addresses under the very same domain name. For instance, an email sent to the miswritten suport@domain.com will be delivered to support@domain.com in case the catch-all feature has been activated for the latter. In this way, you can get emails from partners or customers 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 single mailbox per domain name can be a catch-all one and email forwarding cannot be activated for such a mailbox. The latter is due to the fact that at some point you may begin receiving spam email messages in the catch-all mailbox and the forwarding restriction means that the spam will not be delivered to a third-party mailbox.

Catch-all Emails in Web Hosting

If you host a domain name on our cloud hosting platform and you’ve got a web hosting account, you’ll be able to enable the catch-all feature for any email mailbox that you create under the domain. The Email Manager section of the Hepsia hosting Control Panel offers quite a lot of features, but it’s amazingly intuitive, so creating a catch-all mailbox takes just a single mouse click. All the email addresses that you have created will be displayed in this section alphabetically and you’ll only need to click the "Catch-all" button associated with the particular address. Our system will inform you if there’s already another catch-all mailbox enabled for that domain or if the one that you want to be a catch-all mailbox has email forwarding activated, so you can either turn off the latter feature or select another mailbox. Deactivating the catch-all feature is just as simple and takes yet another click on the exact same button.

Catch-all Emails in Semi-dedicated Hosting

The in-house created Hepsia Control Panel that comes with each semi-dedicated server package that we are offering will permit you to set up a catch-all email mailbox without any effort even in case you don’t have much web/email hosting experience. All you need to do to achieve that is click the catch-all icon, which will be next to each email address that you have created using your domains in the Control Panel’s Email Manager section. As you can have only one mailbox with this feature per domain, our system will notify you if you’ve already created a different catch-all mailbox or if the one that you would like to use has email forwarding enabled. In case you reach the decision that you do not need the feature any longer, you can turn it off by clicking again on the very same icon. The Email Manager section will also allow you to view your catch-all mailboxes at a glance.
