A catch-all email mailbox receives emails sent to nonexistent email addresses under the exact same domain. For example, an email message sent to the mistyped 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 messages from mates or clients who may have sent a message to your email address with a spelling error or to an obsolete one, which they may still have, but you have already deleted. Only one mailbox per domain can be a catch-all one and email forwarding cannot be enabled for such a mailbox. The latter is due to the fact that at some point you may begin receiving spam email messages in the catch-all mailbox and the forwarding restriction implies that the spam will not be redirected to a 3rd-party mailbox.

Catch-all Emails in Cloud Hosting

If you host a domain name on our cloud platform and you have a cloud hosting account, you’ll be able to activate the catch-all feature for any mailbox that you set up under the domain. The Hepsia hosting Control Panel’s Email Manager section offers quite a few functions, but it’s amazingly simple to work with, so configuring a catch-all mailbox takes only a single mouse click. All the email addresses that you’ve created will be enumerated in this section in alphabetical order and you’ll just have to click on the "Catch-all" button associated with the particular address. Our system will warn you if there is already another catch-all mailbox enabled for that domain name or if the one that you would like to be a catch-all mailbox has email forwarding activated, so you can either disable the latter feature or pick a different mailbox. Deactivating the catch-all feature is just as simple and requires yet another click on the same button.

Catch-all Emails in Semi-dedicated Servers

The custom-developed Hepsia hosting Control Panel that comes with every semi-dedicated server package that we are offering will allow you to set up a catch-all email mailbox without any difficulties even if you do not have much email/web hosting experience. All you need to do to achieve that is click on the catch-all icon, which will be next to each email address that you have created with your domain names in the Email Manager section of the Control Panel. Since you can have just one mailbox with this feature per domain name, our system will let you know if you’ve already set up a different catch-all mailbox or if the one that you’d like to use has email forwarding activated. In case you decide that you do not want the feature any longer, you can remove it by clicking once again on the very same icon. The Email Manager will also permit you to see your catch-all mailboxes at a glance.
