A catch-all email mailbox receives messages sent to nonexistent email addresses under the very same domain. For example, a message sent to the misspelled suport@domain.com will be delivered to support@domain.com in case the catch-all feature has been activated for the latter. In this way, you can receive email messages from acquaintances 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 name can be a catch-all one and email forwarding cannot be activated for such a mailbox. This is so because of the fact that at a certain moment you may start receiving spam emails in the catch-all mailbox and the forwarding restriction implies that the spam will not be re-sent to a third-party mailbox.

Catch-all Emails in Website Hosting

If you host a domain name on our cloud hosting platform and you’ve got a website hosting account, you’ll be able to activate the catch-all functionality for any e-mailbox that you set up under the domain. The Hepsia hosting Control Panel’s Email Manager section includes quite a few features, but it is extremely easy to work with, so creating a catch-all mailbox requires just one mouse click. All the email addresses that you have set up will be listed in this section alphabetically and you will only have to click on the "Catch-all" button for the particular address. Our system will inform 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 activated, so you can either disable the latter feature or select some other mailbox. Deactivating the catch-all option is just as simple and takes yet another mouse click on the very same button.

Catch-all Emails in Semi-dedicated Servers

You’ll be able to configure a catch-all email address with no more than one click in case you have a Linux semi-dedicated hosting service with our company and your emails are handled by our cloud web hosting platform. All the mailboxes that you create with any domain hosted in the semi-dedicated hosting account will be enumerated in the Email Manager section of your Hepsia Control Panel. Each of them will have a tiny "Catch-all" icon next to it, so all it will take to activate the feature will be to click that icon. In the exact same manner you’ll be able to remove the feature, in case you do not need it anymore. Our system will notify you in case you are trying to activate a second catch-all mailbox for a certain domain name or in case there is activated email forwarding, but it will never disable or alter anything automatically or without your consent.
