A catch-all mailbox receives emails sent to nonexistent addresses under the same domain name. For instance, an email 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 get messages from friends or customers who may have sent a message to your email address with a spelling mistake or to an outdated one, which they may still have, but you have already deactivated. Only one mailbox per domain can be a catch-all one and email forwarding cannot be enabled for such a mailbox. This is due to the fact that at a certain point you may start 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 Web Hosting

You’ll be able to create a catch-all mailbox without difficulty in case you’ve got a shared web hosting plan with us. The Email Manager in our in-house built Hepsia Control Panel is feature-laden, yet really intuitive, and it will permit you to enable various features, including the catch-all one, with only a couple of mouse clicks. All the email addresses that you’ve set up will be enumerated alphabetically in this section and to the right of each one of them you will find a tiny "Catch-all" button. Clicking on it once will enable the feature, clicking on it once again will deactivate it. As you can have just one such catch-all mailbox per domain name, our system will inform you if you already have a different mailbox with this feature activated or if you’ve got active email forwarding.

Catch-all Emails in Semi-dedicated Hosting

A catch-all address can be configured with a few clicks of the mouse if you have a semi-dedicated hosting with our company. The semi-dedicated hosting account will be administered via our in-house created Hepsia hosting Control Panel and you’ll be able to set up email addresses with any domain name hosted there. To enable the catch-all functionality for a given mailbox, you will have to click the logo with the same name, which will be next to each email address. Disabling this feature can be accomplished in the exact same fashion and will not take more than one click either. If the catch-all option has already been enabled for a specific domain, you will receive a warning message. 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 replace or disable anything automatically.
