A catch-all mailbox receives email messages sent to inactive addresses under the same domain. For example, a message sent to the mistyped suport@domain.com will go to support@domain.com in case the catch-all feature has been enabled for the latter. Thus, you can get messages from buddies 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 deleted. Just 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 messages in the catch-all mailbox and the forwarding limitation implies that the spam will not be re-sent to a third-party mailbox.

Catch-all Emails in Hosting

Setting up a catch-all email mailbox will be exceptionally easy if you’ve got a Linux hosting service with us. You can activate the feature through our advanced, albeit simple-to-work-with Email Manager, which is integrated into the Hepsia Control Panel, via which you will manage the hosting account itself. You will see all the email addresses that you’ve created displayed alphabetically and next to each one of them there will be a tiny "Catch-all" icon, which will quickly reveal to you if a particular mailbox receives all the messages associated with a certain domain or not. With a single mouse click on the icon you can enable or disable this feature whenever you want. In case there’s activated email forwarding or in case another mailbox has already been configured as a catch-all one for a certain domain, you’ll receive a warning message from our system. The latter will not replace/disable anything automatically and without your consent.

Catch-all Emails in Semi-dedicated Servers

You will be able to configure a catch-all email address with no more than a click if you’ve got a semi-dedicated hosting service with our company and your emails are handled by our cloud web hosting platform. All the addresses that you create with any domain hosted in the semi-dedicated hosting account will be displayed in the Email Manager section of your Hepsia hosting Control Panel. Each of them will have a small-size "Catch-all" icon next to it, so all it will take to activate this option will be to click on that icon. In the same way you’ll be able to remove the feature, in case you do not need it anymore. Our system will warn you if you’re trying to activate a second catch-all email address for a given domain or in case there’s enabled email forwarding, but it’ll never deactivate or alter anything automatically and without your consent.
