A catch-all email mailbox receives messages sent to invalid email addresses under the exact same domain. For instance, an email sent to the misspelled suport@domain.com will go to support@domain.com if the catch-all feature has been enabled for the latter. In this way, you can get messages from partners or customers 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 disabled. Only one single 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 a certain moment you may begin receiving spam email messages in the catch-all mailbox and the forwarding restriction implies that the spam will not be re-sent to a 3rd-party mailbox.

Catch-all Emails in Cloud Hosting

In case you host a domain name on our cloud platform and you’ve got a cloud hosting account, you’ll be able to enable the catch-all feature for any mailbox that you create under the domain name. The Email Manager section of the Hepsia hosting Control Panel offers quite a few functions, but it’s extremely simple to use, so configuring a catch-all mailbox requires just a click of the mouse. All the email addresses that you’ve set up will be listed in this section in alphabetical order and you’ll only need to click the "Catch-all" button associated with the particular email address. Our system will warn you if there is already another catch-all mailbox activated for that domain or if the one that you’d like to be a catch-all mailbox has email forwarding enabled, so you can either deactivate the latter feature or pick a different mailbox. Deactivating the catch-all feature is just as simple and requires one more mouse click on the exact same button.

Catch-all Emails in Semi-dedicated Servers

A catch-all address can be configured with a few mouse clicks if you’ve got a Linux semi-dedicated service with our company. The hosting account will be managed via our custom-created Hepsia hosting Control Panel and you’ll be able to set up email addresses using any domain hosted there. To enable the catch-all feature for a specific mailbox, you will need to click on the sign with the same name, which will be on the right side of each email address. Disabling the feature can be achieved in the exact same fashion and will not require more than one click either. In case the catch-all functionality has already been activated for a given domain, you’ll receive a warning note. The same goes if the mailbox that you’d like to be a catch-all one has email forwarding enabled, as our system will never disable or change anything automatically.
