A catch-all mailbox receives messages sent to non-existent addresses under the very same domain. For example, an email sent to the mistyped suport@domain.com will be delivered to support@domain.com if the catch-all feature has been enabled for the latter. In this way, you can get emails from colleagues or clients who may have sent a message to your email address with a spelling mistake or to an old one, which they may still have, but you have already deactivated. 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 some moment you may begin receiving spam email messages in the catch-all mailbox and the forwarding restriction means that the spam will not be sent to a third-party mailbox.

Catch-all Emails in Cloud Hosting

In case you have a Linux cloud hosting with us and you want to enable the catch-all functionality for a certain mailbox that you’ve got in your account, it’ll take literally only a single mouse click in the Email Manager section of your Hepsia hosting Control Panel to achieve that. A catch-all button is available on the right side of each email address that you have set up under any domain name hosted in your account. You can choose one single email address per domain by clicking on the corresponding button. This will enable the feature immediately, so all messages sent to misspelled email addresses will be received there. Clicking on the button once more will disable the catch-all feature. If you have activated email forwarding, our system will display a cautionary note and you won’t be able to activate the catch-all feature unless you delete the forwarding or you can simply select another mailbox to be the catch-all one.

Catch-all Emails in Semi-dedicated Hosting

The custom-built Hepsia hosting Control Panel that comes with every semi-dedicated server package that we offer will permit you to create a catch-all e-mailbox effortlessly even in case you do not have much web/email hosting experience. All you need to do to accomplish that is click the catch-all icon, which will be to the right of each email address that you have set up with your domains in the hosting Control Panel’s Email Manager section. Since you can have only one mailbox with this feature per domain, our system will inform you if you’ve already set up a different catch-all mailbox or if the one that you want to use has email forwarding enabled. If you decide that you don’t need this feature anymore, you can turn it off by clicking once again on the exact same icon. The Email Manager section will also permit you to see your catch-all mailboxes at a glance.
