A catch-all mailbox receives email messages sent to inactive addresses under the exact same domain name. For example, an email sent to the misspelled suport@domain.com will go to support@domain.com if the catch-all feature has been activated for the latter. Thus, you can receive messages from mates or customers who may have sent a message to your email address with a typo or to an out-of-date one, which they may still have, but you have already deactivated. Only one single mailbox per domain name can be a catch-all one and email forwarding cannot be activated for such a mailbox. This is due to the fact that at a certain point you may begin receiving spam email messages in the catch-all mailbox and the forwarding limitation implies that the spam will not be redirected to a third-party mailbox.

Catch-all Emails in Shared Website Hosting

You will be able to create a catch-all mailbox without any effort in case you have a shared website hosting plan with our company. The Email Manager tool in our in-house built Hepsia Control Panel is fully featured, yet astonishingly simple to use, and it will permit you to activate different options, including the catch-all one, with just a few mouse clicks. All the mailboxes that you have created will be enumerated in alphabetical order in this section and to the right of each one you will notice a small "Catch-all" symbol. Clicking on it once will activate this feature, clicking it again will disable it. Since you can have just one such catch-all mailbox per domain name, our system will inform you if you already have a different mailbox with this option activated or if you have activated email forwarding.

Catch-all Emails in Semi-dedicated Hosting

A catch-all address can be configured with a few mouse clicks in case you have a Linux semi-dedicated hosting with us. The semi-dedicated hosting account will be administered via our custom-created Hepsia Control Panel and you will be able to set up mailboxes under any domain registered here. To activate the catch-all option for a certain mailbox, you’ll have to click the sign with the same name, which will be on the right-hand side of each mailbox. Disabling this functionality can be achieved in the very same way and will not take more than one click either. If the catch-all feature has already been enabled for a given domain name, you will get a warning text message. The same is valid if the mailbox that you wish to be a catch-all one has email forwarding enabled, as our system will never replace or disable anything automatically.
