A catch-all email mailbox receives email messages sent to non-existent email addresses under the same domain. For example, an email message sent to the miswritten 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 emails from colleagues or clients who may have sent a message to your email address with a typo 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 enabled for such a mailbox. This is so because of the fact that at some point you may begin receiving spam email messages in the catch-all mailbox and the forwarding limitation implies that the spam will not be re-sent to a 3rd-party mailbox.

Catch-all Emails in Website Hosting

In case you host a domain on our cloud hosting platform and you’ve got a website hosting account, you’ll be able to activate the catch-all feature for any mailbox that you create under the domain name. The Hepsia Control Panel’s Email Manager section offers quite a lot of functions, but it’s surprisingly simple to work with, so configuring a catch-all mailbox takes just a click of the mouse. All the email addresses that you’ve set up will be displayed in this section alphabetically and you will just need to click the "Catch-all" button pertaining to the given email address. Our system will notify you if there is already another catch-all mailbox enabled 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 some other mailbox. Deactivating the catch-all option is just as easy and requires yet another mouse click on the exact same button.

Catch-all Emails in Semi-dedicated Servers

A catch-all email address can be set up with a few mouse clicks if you have a semi-dedicated server with our company. The semi-dedicated hosting account will be administered through our custom-created Hepsia Control Panel and you’ll be able to set up email addresses using any domain registered here. To enable the catch-all option for a particular mailbox, you will have to click the logo with the exact same name, which will be to the right of each email address. Disabling the feature can be accomplished in the exact same manner and will not take more than a click either. In case a catch-all mailbox has already been enabled for a particular domain, you will get a warning alert. The same is valid if the mailbox that you wish to be a catch-all one has email forwarding activated, as our system will never disable or alter any feature automatically.
