A catch-all email mailbox receives email messages sent to non-existent email addresses under the same domain. For instance, an email sent to the misspelled suport@domain.com will be delivered to support@domain.com in case the catch-all feature has been enabled for the latter. Thus, you can get emails from friends or clients who may have sent a message to your email address with a typographical error or to an out-of-date one, which they may still have, but you have already deactivated.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 enabled for such a mailbox. This is so because of 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 redirected to a 3rd-party mailbox.

Catch-all Emails in Cloud Hosting

Configuring a catch-all email mailbox will be stunningly easy if you have a Linux cloud hosting with our company. You can enable this feature through our powerful, albeit intuitive Email Manager, which is an integral part of the Hepsia hosting Control Panel, via which you will administer the shared web hosting account itself. You’ll see all the email addresses that you have set up shown alphabetically and on the right side of each one there will be a small-size "Catch-all" icon, which will immediately tell you if a specific mailbox receives all the emails associated with a given domain name or not. With one click on the icon you can enable or disable the feature at any time. In case there is enabled email forwarding or in case some other mailbox has already been configured as a catch-all one for a specific domain name, you’ll get an alert 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 email address can be configured with a couple of clicks of the mouse in case you have a Linux semi-dedicated hosting service with our company. The semi-dedicated account will be administered via our custom Hepsia hosting Control Panel and you will be able to create email addresses using any domain name registered here. To enable the catch-all functionality for a certain mailbox, you will need to click the button with the same name, which will be next to each email address. Disabling the feature can be accomplished in the same way and will not take more than one click either. If the catch-all feature has already been enabled for a given domain, you will receive a warning note. The same goes if the mailbox that you wish to be a catch-all one has email forwarding activated, as our system will never disable or modify anything automatically.
