A catch-all mailbox receives messages sent to non-existent addresses under the exact same domain name. For instance, an email sent to the miswritten suport@domain.com will go to support@domain.com in case the catch-all feature has been activated for the latter. In this way, you can receive email messages from mates or customers who may have sent a message to your email address with a typographical error or to an old 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 activated for such a mailbox. The latter is due to the fact that at a certain moment you may begin receiving spam emails in the catch-all mailbox and the forwarding restriction means that the spam will not be sent to a third-party mailbox.

Catch-all Emails in Shared Hosting

If you’ve got a Linux shared hosting package with our company and you wish to enable the catch-all functionality for a specific email mailbox that you have in the hosting account, it’ll take literally only one click in the Email Manager section of your Hepsia Control Panel to do that. A catch-all button is available to the right of each email address that you have set up under any domain name hosted in your account. You can select one single address per domain name by clicking on the corresponding button. This will enable the feature immediately, so all email messages sent to miswritten email addresses will be received there. Clicking on the button for a second time will deactivate the catch-all feature. In case you have activated email forwarding, our system will display a cautionary notification and you will not be able to enable the catch-all feature till you remove the forwarding or you can simply pick a different mailbox to be the catch-all one.

Catch-all Emails in Semi-dedicated Hosting

The custom-created Hepsia hosting Control Panel that is included with each semi-dedicated server plan that we offer will allow you to create a catch-all mailbox effortlessly even in case you don’t have much email/web hosting experience. All you have to do to accomplish that is click the catch-all icon, which will be to the right of each mailbox that you’ve set up using your domain names in the Email Manager section of the hosting Control Panel. As you can have only one mailbox with this feature per domain name, our system will warn you if you’ve already configured another catch-all mailbox or if the one that you wish to use has email forwarding enabled. If you decide that you do not want the feature anymore, you can remove it by clicking once again on the very same icon. The Email Manager will also permit you to view your catch-all mailboxes at a glance.
