A catch-all email mailbox receives email messages sent to inactive email addresses under the exact same domain name. For example, a message sent to the miswritten suport@domain.com will be delivered to support@domain.com in case the catch-all feature has been enabled for the latter. In this way, you can get email messages from partners or clients who may have sent a message to your email address with a spelling mistake or to an outdated one, which they may still have, but you have already deactivated.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 due to the fact that at some point you may start receiving spam emails 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 Website Hosting

If you’ve got a cloud website hosting plan with us and you wish to enable the catch-all feature for a certain e-mailbox that you’ve got in your hosting account, it’ll take literally just one mouse click in the Email Manager section of your Hepsia hosting Control Panel to do that. A catch-all button is available on the right-hand side of each email address that you have created under any domain hosted in your account. You can select one address per domain by clicking on the respective button. This will enable the feature immediately, so all messages sent to miswritten addresses will be delivered there. Clicking the button again will disable the catch-all feature. If you’ve got active email forwarding, our system will display a cautionary notice and you will not be able to activate the catch-all feature until you remove the forwarding or you can simply pick some other mailbox to be the catch-all one.

Catch-all Emails in Semi-dedicated Servers

A catch-all email address can be created with several clicks of the mouse if you have a Linux semi-dedicated server with us. The semi-dedicated account will be managed through our custom-built Hepsia Control Panel and you will be able to create email addresses under any domain name registered there. To activate the catch-all option for a particular mailbox, you’ll need to click on the button with the same name, which will be on the right-hand side of each mailbox. Deactivating the feature can be achieved in the same way and will not take more than one click either. If a catch-all mailbox has already been activated for a certain domain, you’ll receive a notification. The same is valid if the mailbox that you wish to be a catch-all one has email forwarding enabled, as our system will never change or deactivate anything automatically.
