A catch-all mailbox receives email messages sent to non-existent addresses under the very same domain. For example, an email sent to the misspelled suport@domain.com will go to support@domain.com in case the catch-all feature has been activated for the latter. Thus, you can get email messages from colleagues or customers who may have sent a message to your email address with a typo or to an outdated one, which they may still have, but you have already deleted.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 enabled for such a mailbox. This is due to the fact that at a certain moment you may begin receiving spam messages in the catch-all mailbox and the forwarding limitation means that the spam will not be re-sent to a third-party mailbox.

Catch-all Emails in Cloud Web Hosting

You will be able to set up a catch-all email mailbox easily in case you have a cloud web hosting plan with us. The Email Manager tool in our custom-built Hepsia hosting Control Panel is fully featured, yet incredibly easy to work with, and it will enable you to enable various options, including the catch-all one, with only several clicks. All the email addresses that you’ve got will be enumerated in alphabetical order in this section and on the right side of each of them you will notice a mini "Catch-all" symbol. Clicking on it once will enable the feature, clicking it once more will deactivate it. Since you can have only one such mailbox per domain name, our system will notify you if you already have a different mailbox with this option enabled or if you’ve got activated email forwarding.

Catch-all Emails in Semi-dedicated Servers

The catch-all functionality can be activated without any effort if you have a semi-dedicated server plan with us. All the email addresses that you’ve set up using the domains hosted in the semi-dedicated account will be shown in the Email Manager section of your Hepsia Control Panel and you’ll find a tiny symbol handily located right next to each one. With only one single click of the mouse, you can activate or deactivate the catch-all option for any mailbox of your choosing as long as there isn't another mailbox under the same domain name with the option already enabled and there isn't active email forwarding. Instead, you can right-click on a mailbox and enable this feature using the context menu that will pop up. If any of the prerequisites for creating a catch-all mailbox is not met, our system will let you know, but will not replace or disable anything automatically.
