A catch-all email mailbox receives messages sent to nonexistent email addresses under the exact same domain name. For instance, a message sent to the miswritten suport@domain.com will be delivered to support@domain.com if the catch-all feature has been activated for the latter. Thus, you can receive email messages from acquaintances or clients who may have sent a message to your email address with a typographical error or to an outdated one, which they may still have, but you have already deactivated.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 activated for such a mailbox. The latter is due to the fact that at a certain moment you may begin receiving spam messages in the catch-all mailbox and the forwarding restriction means that the spam will not be redirected to a third-party mailbox.

Catch-all Emails in Cloud Hosting

In case you host a domain name on our cloud web hosting platform and you’ve got a cloud hosting account, you will be able to activate the catch-all feature for any e-mailbox that you set up under the domain. The Hepsia Control Panel’s Email Manager section includes quite a few features, but it is very easy to use, so creating a catch-all mailbox requires only a mouse click. All the email addresses that you have set up will be listed in this section in alphabetical order and you will simply need to click on the "Catch-all" button associated with the given email address. Our system will inform you if there is already another catch-all mailbox enabled for that domain name or if the one that you want to be a catch-all mailbox has email forwarding activated, so you can either disable the latter feature or choose another mailbox. Deactivating the catch-all feature is just as simple and takes one more mouse click on the exact same button.

Catch-all Emails in Semi-dedicated Servers

A catch-all address can be set up with a couple of mouse clicks if you have a Linux semi-dedicated hosting plan with our company. The semi-dedicated hosting account will be managed through our custom-created Hepsia Control Panel and you’ll be able to create mailboxes using any domain hosted there. To activate the catch-all functionality for a particular mailbox, you will need to click on the sign with the exact same name, which will be next to each mailbox. Deactivating this feature can be done in the very same way and will not take more than one click either. In case the catch-all option has already been enabled for a specific domain name, you’ll receive a notification. The same goes if the mailbox that you wish to be a catch-all one has email forwarding activated, as our system will never deactivate or edit any feature automatically.
