A catch-all mailbox receives email messages sent to inactive addresses under the exact same domain. For example, an email 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 messages from pals or customers who may have sent a message to your email address with a typographical error or to an obsolete one, which they may still have, but you have already disabled. Just one single mailbox per domain name 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 start receiving spam emails in the catch-all mailbox and the forwarding limitation implies that the spam will not be redirected to a 3rd-party mailbox.

Catch-all Emails in Hosting

You’ll be able to configure a catch-all e-mailbox without effort in case you’ve got a hosting account with us. The Email Manager tool in our custom-created Hepsia hosting Control Panel is feature-rich, yet really user-friendly, and it will enable you to enable different options, including the catch-all one, with just a few clicks of the mouse. All the mailboxes that you have created will be enumerated alphabetically in this section and next to each one you’ll notice a small-size "Catch-all" icon. Clicking it once will enable this feature, clicking it once again will deactivate it. Since you can have just one such catch-all mailbox per domain, our system will inform you if you already have a different mailbox with this option activated or if you have active email forwarding.

Catch-all Emails in Semi-dedicated Hosting

The catch-all option can be activated without any effort in case you’ve got a semi-dedicated server account with us. All the email addresses that you’ve set up using the domains hosted in the semi-dedicated server account will be listed in the Email Manager section of your Hepsia hosting Control Panel and you’ll find a small button conveniently situated directly next to each one of them. With only a single click of the mouse, you can activate or deactivate the catch-all option for any mailbox of your preference as long as there isn't another mailbox under that same domain with the option already activated and there isn't enabled email forwarding. Instead, you can right-click on an email address and enable the feature through the context menu that will pop up. If any of the conditions for setting up a catch-all mailbox is not answered, our system will warn you, but will not replace or disable anything automatically.
