A catch-all email mailbox receives email messages sent to invalid email addresses under the very same domain name. For instance, a message sent to the miswritten suport@domain.com will be delivered to support@domain.com if the catch-all feature has been enabled for the latter. Thus, you can receive email messages from buddies or customers 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 deleted. Just one single mailbox per domain name 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 point you may begin receiving spam emails in the catch-all mailbox and the forwarding limitation means that the spam will not be sent to a third-party mailbox.

Catch-all Emails in Shared Hosting

Creating a catch-all email mailbox will be exceptionally easy if you’ve got a Linux shared hosting with us. You can enable this option through our advanced, albeit simple-to-work-with Email Manager, which is an integral part of the Hepsia hosting Control Panel, via which you will manage the hosting account itself. You’ll see all the mailboxes that you’ve created displayed alphabetically and on the right-hand side of each one there will be a mini "Catch-all" icon, which will instantaneously reveal to you if a particular mailbox gets all the messages pertaining to a given domain name or not. With a single mouse click on the icon you can activate or deactivate this feature whenever you want. In case there’s activated email forwarding or if some other mailbox has already been set up as a catch-all one for a given domain, you will receive an alert from our system. The latter won’t replace/disable anything automatically or without your permission.

Catch-all Emails in Semi-dedicated Servers

A catch-all email address can be configured with a couple of mouse clicks in case you’ve got a Linux semi-dedicated plan with our company. The semi-dedicated hosting account will be managed via our custom-developed Hepsia hosting Control Panel and you’ll be able to create email addresses using any domain name registered here. To enable the catch-all feature for a particular mailbox, you will need to click the logo with the same name, which will be on the right-hand side of each email address. Disabling this functionality can be done in the exact same manner and will not take more than a click either. In case the catch-all functionality has already been activated for a certain domain name, you will get a warning message. The same is valid if the mailbox that you want to be a catch-all one has email forwarding enabled, as our system will never disable or edit any feature automatically.
