A catch-all mailbox receives emails sent to invalid addresses under the same domain name. For instance, an email message sent to the misspelled suport@domain.com will go to support@domain.com in case the catch-all feature has been activated for the latter. Thus, you can receive email messages from acquaintances or clients who may have sent a message to your email address with a spelling error or to an outdated one, which they may still have, but you have already deactivated.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 enabled for such a mailbox. This is due to the fact that at some point you may begin receiving spam emails in the catch-all mailbox and the forwarding restriction implies that the spam will not be redirected to a third-party mailbox.

Catch-all Emails in Shared Hosting

If 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 feature for any mailbox that you set up under the domain. The Hepsia hosting Control Panel’s Email Manager section includes quite a lot of functions, but it’s remarkably simple to work with, so configuring a catch-all mailbox takes just one mouse click. All the email addresses that you have created will be listed in this section alphabetically and you will just have to click on the "Catch-all" button pertaining to the particular email address. Our system will notify you if there’s already another catch-all mailbox enabled for that domain or if the one that you’d like to be a catch-all mailbox has email forwarding activated, so you can either turn off the latter feature or choose a different mailbox. Deactivating the catch-all feature is just as easy and requires yet another mouse click on the very same button.

Catch-all Emails in Semi-dedicated Servers

A catch-all email address can be set up with several clicks of the mouse if you have a semi-dedicated plan with our company. The semi-dedicated account will be administered via our in-house developed Hepsia Control Panel and you’ll be able to set up email addresses using any domain hosted here. To enable the catch-all feature for a given mailbox, you’ll have to click on the logo with the exact same name, which will be on the right side of each mailbox. Deactivating this functionality can be accomplished in the exact same way and will not require more than a click either. If the catch-all functionality has already been enabled for a certain domain, you will get a warning message. The same goes if the mailbox that you’d like to be a catch-all one has email forwarding enabled, as our system will never disable or edit any feature automatically.
