A catch-all mailbox receives messages sent to nonexistent email addresses under the exact same domain. For example, an email message sent to the misspelled suport@domain.com will go to support@domain.com in case the catch-all feature has been activated for the latter. In this way, you can receive messages from colleagues or clients who may have sent a message to your email address with a typographical error or to an outdated one, which they may still have, but you have already deleted. Only one single mailbox per domain name can be a catch-all one and email forwarding cannot be enabled for such a mailbox. The latter is due to the fact that at some moment you may begin receiving spam emails in the catch-all mailbox and the forwarding limitation means that the spam will not be received in a 3rd-party mailbox.

Catch-all Emails in Shared Web Hosting

If you have a shared web hosting with our company and you wish to activate the catch-all feature for a particular mailbox that you’ve got in your hosting account, it’ll take literally only one single mouse click in the Email Manager section of your Hepsia hosting Control Panel to do this. A catch-all button is available next to each email address that you have created under any domain name registered in your account. You can select one email address per domain name by clicking on the respective button. This will activate the feature right away, so all emails sent to mistyped addresses will be delivered there. Clicking the button once again will deactivate the catch-all feature. If you’ve got activated email forwarding, our system will show a warning notice and you will not be able to activate the catch-all feature till you remove the forwarding or you can simply pick a different mailbox to be the catch-all one.

Catch-all Emails in Semi-dedicated Servers

The in-house developed Hepsia Control Panel that comes with every semi-dedicated server package that we are offering will allow you to configure a catch-all mailbox without any effort even if you don’t have much email/web hosting experience. All it takes to achieve that is to click on the catch-all icon, which will be next to each email address that you’ve created using your domains in the Email Manager section of the hosting Control Panel. Since you can have just one single mailbox with this feature per domain name, our system will inform you if you’ve already set up a different catch-all mailbox or if the one that you would like to use has email forwarding enabled. In case you reach the decision that you don’t want the feature any longer, you can disable it by clicking once again on the same icon. The Email Manager section will also permit you to see your catch-all mailboxes at a glance.
