A catch-all mailbox receives email messages sent to nonexistent email addresses under the exact same domain name. 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 receive messages from friends 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 disabled. Just one mailbox per domain can be a catch-all one and email forwarding cannot be enabled for such a mailbox. This is due to the fact that at a certain point you may begin receiving spam emails in the catch-all mailbox and the forwarding restriction means that the spam will not be delivered to a third-party mailbox.

Catch-all Emails in Website Hosting

In case you’ve got a Linux website hosting package with us and you want to activate the catch-all feature for a given mailbox that you have in the web hosting account, it’ll take literally only a click of the mouse in the Email Manager section of your Hepsia hosting Control Panel to do this. A catch-all button is available on the right-hand side of each email address that you have created under any domain hosted in the account. You can choose one single email address per domain name by clicking the corresponding button. This will activate the feature instantly, so all email messages sent to miswritten email addresses will be received there. Clicking on the button once again will deactivate the catch-all feature. If you’ve got enabled email forwarding, our system will exhibit a warning note and you will not be able to activate the catch-all feature till you disable the forwarding or you can simply pick another mailbox to be the catch-all one.

Catch-all Emails in Semi-dedicated Hosting

You’ll be able to create a catch-all address with no more than one click if you have a Linux semi-dedicated hosting package with our company and your emails are handled by our cloud hosting platform. All the email addresses that you set up with any domain name hosted in your semi-dedicated account will be listed in the Hepsia Control Panel’s Email Manager section. Each of them will have a small "Catch-all" icon next to it, so all it will take to activate this option will be to click on that icon. In the same manner you’ll be able to remove the feature, in case you don’t need it any longer. Our system will let you know if you’re trying to enable a second catch-all address for a particular domain or in case there is enabled email forwarding, but it will never disable or alter anything automatically or without your permission.
