A catch-all mailbox receives emails sent to invalid addresses under the very same domain. For example, a message sent to the mistyped suport@domain.com will go to support@domain.com if the catch-all feature has been activated for the latter. Thus, you can receive email messages from partners or clients who may have sent a message to your email address with a spelling mistake or to an out-of-date one, which they may still have, but you have already deleted. Just one single mailbox per domain 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 some moment you may begin receiving spam emails in the catch-all mailbox and the forwarding restriction implies that the spam will not be re-sent to a 3rd-party mailbox.

Catch-all Emails in Shared Hosting

Creating a catch-all mailbox will be pretty easy in case you’ve got a Linux shared service with us. You can activate this feature through our advanced, yet easy-to-use Email Manager, which is an indivisible part of the Hepsia Control Panel, via which you will administer your web hosting account. You will find all the mailboxes that you’ve created listed alphabetically and on the right-hand side of each of them there will be a small-size "Catch-all" icon, which will quickly tell you if a certain mailbox stores all the messages associated with a certain domain or not. With a single click on the icon you can activate or deactivate this option at any time. If there is enabled email forwarding or in case another mailbox has already been configured as a catch-all one for a specific domain, you will get a warning notice from our system. The latter won’t replace/disable anything automatically and without your consent.

Catch-all Emails in Semi-dedicated Servers

A catch-all address can be configured with a few mouse clicks in case you have a semi-dedicated hosting service with our company. The semi-dedicated hosting account will be managed through our in-house developed Hepsia hosting Control Panel and you will be able to set up mailboxes with any domain name hosted here. To activate the catch-all feature for a specific mailbox, you’ll have to click the icon with the exact same name, which will be on the right-hand side of each mailbox. Disabling this feature can be achieved in the same manner and will not take more than one click either. In case the catch-all option has already been enabled for a certain domain name, you’ll receive a notification. The same is valid if the mailbox that you wish to be a catch-all one has email forwarding activated, as our system will never edit or disable anything automatically.
