A catch-all email mailbox receives messages sent to nonexistent addresses under the same domain. For example, an email sent to the mistyped 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 receive messages from mates or customers who may have sent a message to your email address with a spelling error or to an outdated one, which they may still have, but you have already deactivated. Just one single mailbox per domain 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 a certain point you may begin receiving spam emails in the catch-all mailbox and the forwarding limitation means that the spam will not be redirected to a 3rd-party mailbox.

Catch-all Emails in Cloud Web Hosting

You’ll be able to set up a catch-all mailbox without any difficulty if you’ve got a cloud web hosting account with us. The Email Manager tool in our in-house developed Hepsia hosting Control Panel is feature-laden, yet extremely simple to use, and it will permit you to enable various options, including the catch-all one, with no more than a couple of clicks. All the email addresses that you’ve got will be shown in alphabetical order in this section and next to each of them you’ll see a tiny "Catch-all" logo. Clicking it once will enable this option, clicking it once more will disable it. Since you can have just one such catch-all mailbox per domain, our system will alert you if you already have a different one with this option activated or if you’ve got active email forwarding.

Catch-all Emails in Semi-dedicated Servers

A catch-all email address can be created with several mouse clicks in case you have a semi-dedicated server with our company. The semi-dedicated hosting account will be managed via our custom-built Hepsia hosting Control Panel and you’ll be able to set up email addresses under any domain hosted here. To activate the catch-all functionality for a particular mailbox, you will have to click on the icon with the exact same name, which will be on the right-hand side of each email address. Deactivating the feature can be achieved in the exact same way and will not require more than one click either. If the catch-all functionality has already been enabled for a specific domain name, you’ll get a warning note. The same goes if the mailbox that you would like to be a catch-all one has email forwarding activated, as our system will never deactivate or alter anything automatically.
