A catch-all mailbox receives messages sent to non-existent addresses under the very same domain name. 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. In this way, you can receive email messages from friends or clients who may have sent a message to your email address with a spelling error or to an old one, which they may still have, but you have already deactivated. Only one single mailbox per domain can be a catch-all one and email forwarding cannot be set up for such a mailbox. This is due to the fact that at a certain point you may begin receiving spam emails in the catch-all mailbox and the forwarding limitation implies that the spam will not be sent to a 3rd-party mailbox.

Catch-all Emails in Cloud Web Hosting

You will be able to create a catch-all e-mailbox without difficulty if you have a cloud web hosting account with our company. The Email Manager tool in our custom-developed Hepsia hosting Control Panel is feature-loaded, yet incredibly simple to use, and it will enable you to enable various options, including the catch-all one, with just a few clicks of the mouse. All the mailboxes that you’ve got will be displayed alphabetically in this section and to the right of each one you will notice a small-size "Catch-all" symbol. Clicking it once will enable this option, clicking on it once more will deactivate it. Since you can have just one such catch-all mailbox per domain, our system will notify you if you already have another mailbox with this feature enabled or if you have enabled email forwarding.

Catch-all Emails in Semi-dedicated Servers

A catch-all address can be created with several clicks of the mouse if you have a Linux semi-dedicated server with us. The semi-dedicated hosting account will be administered via our in-house created Hepsia hosting Control Panel and you’ll be able to set up mailboxes with any domain name hosted there. To activate the catch-all feature for a certain mailbox, you’ll have to click the sign with the same name, which will be on the right side of each email address. Disabling this functionality can be accomplished in the same fashion and will not take more than one click either. In case the catch-all option has already been enabled for a particular domain, you’ll get a notification. The same goes if the mailbox that you’d like to be a catch-all one has email forwarding activated, as our system will never disable or replace anything automatically.
