A catch-all mailbox receives emails sent to inactive addresses under the exact same domain. For instance, a message sent to the mistyped 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 email messages from mates or clients who may have sent a message to your email address with a typographical error or to an outdated one, which they may still have, but you have already deactivated.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 single mailbox per domain 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 point you may begin receiving spam messages in the catch-all mailbox and the forwarding restriction means that the spam will not be received in a third-party mailbox.

Catch-all Emails in Website Hosting

If you’ve got a website hosting with us and you’d like to activate the catch-all functionality for a certain email mailbox that you’ve got in the web hosting account, it will take literally only one single click in the Email Manager section of your Hepsia Control Panel to accomplish that. A catch-all button is available to the right of each and every email address that you have set up under any domain name hosted in the account. You can select one email address per domain by clicking on the respective button. This will enable the feature right away, so all emails sent to misspelled email addresses will be received there. Clicking the button again will turn off the catch-all feature. In case you’ve got active email forwarding, our system will show a warning notification and you won’t be able to activate the catch-all feature unless you remove the forwarding or you can simply select some other mailbox to be the catch-all one.

Catch-all Emails in Semi-dedicated Servers

A catch-all address can be created with a few mouse clicks in case you’ve got a semi-dedicated service with our company. The hosting account will be managed through our custom-built Hepsia Control Panel and you will be able to set up email addresses under any domain name registered there. To enable the catch-all functionality for a given mailbox, you will have to click the button with the same name, which will be on the right side of each email address. Disabling this option can be achieved in the same way and will not take more than one click either. If the catch-all option has already been enabled for a certain domain name, you will receive a warning notification. The same is valid if the mailbox that you would like to be a catch-all one has email forwarding activated, as our system will never deactivate or change anything automatically.
