A catch-all mailbox receives messages sent to invalid addresses under the exact same domain name. For instance, a message sent to the misspelled suport@domain.com will be delivered to support@domain.com in case the catch-all feature has been activated for the latter. Thus, you can receive messages from acquaintances or clients who may have sent a message to your email address with a typo or to an old 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. This is so because of the fact that at a certain point you may start receiving spam messages in the catch-all mailbox and the forwarding restriction means that the spam will not be re-sent to a third-party mailbox.

Catch-all Emails in Cloud Web Hosting

Setting up a catch-all e-mailbox will be exceptionally easy in case you’ve got a Linux cloud web hosting package with our company. You can enable the feature through our powerful, albeit simple-to-work-with Email Manager tool, which is built into the Hepsia Control Panel, via which you’ll manage your shared web hosting account. You’ll find all the email addresses that you have created listed alphabetically and next to each of them there will be a tiny "Catch-all" icon, which will immediately reveal to you if a specific mailbox gets all the messages pertaining to a certain domain name or not. With one single click on the icon you can enable or disable this option whenever you like. If there’s activated email forwarding or if another mailbox has already been set up as a catch-all one for a specific domain name, you will receive a warning note from our system. The latter won’t deactivate/replace anything automatically or without your consent.

Catch-all Emails in Semi-dedicated Hosting

A catch-all address can be configured with several clicks if you’ve got a Linux semi-dedicated package with our company. The semi-dedicated account will be managed via our in-house created Hepsia hosting Control Panel and you will be able to create email addresses under any domain name hosted here. To activate the catch-all feature for a given mailbox, you’ll have to click on the button with the exact same name, which will be on the right-hand side of each email address. Disabling this feature can be achieved in the exact same manner and will not require more than a click either. If a catch-all mailbox has already been activated for a specific domain name, you’ll get a warning notification. The same goes if the mailbox that you would like to be a catch-all one has email forwarding activated, as our system will never replace or deactivate anything automatically.
