A catch-all mailbox receives email messages sent to inactive addresses under the very same domain name. For example, a message sent to the miswritten suport@domain.com will be delivered to support@domain.com if the catch-all feature has been enabled for the latter. In this way, you can get messages from friends or customers who may have sent a message to your email address with a spelling mistake or to an out-of-date one, which they may still have, but you have already deleted. Only one single mailbox per domain name can be a catch-all one and email forwarding cannot be set up for such a mailbox. The latter is due to the fact that at a certain point you may start receiving spam messages in the catch-all mailbox and the forwarding restriction implies that the spam will not be re-sent to a third-party mailbox.

Catch-all Emails in Cloud Hosting

If you host a domain name on our cloud web hosting platform and you’ve got a cloud hosting account, you will be able to activate the catch-all feature for any mailbox that you create under the domain. The Hepsia hosting Control Panel’s Email Manager section includes quite a lot of functions, but it is incredibly simple to work with, so creating a catch-all mailbox requires only one single click. All the email addresses that you have created will be displayed in this section alphabetically and you will just need to click the "Catch-all" button pertaining to the concrete email address. Our system will warn you if there’s 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 select a different mailbox. Disabling the catch-all option is just as simple and takes yet another click on the very same button.

Catch-all Emails in Semi-dedicated Hosting

A catch-all address can be configured with a couple of clicks of the mouse in case you’ve got a Linux semi-dedicated hosting package with our company. The semi-dedicated account will be administered via our custom-created Hepsia Control Panel and you will be able to set up email addresses with any domain name registered there. To activate the catch-all feature for a given mailbox, you’ll have to click the button with the exact same name, which will be on the right-hand side of each email address. Disabling the feature can be accomplished in the very same manner and will not require more than a click either. In case the catch-all functionality has already been enabled for a specific domain, you will get a warning notification. 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 alter or disable any feature automatically.
