A catch-all mailbox receives emails sent to inactive addresses under the very same domain. For example, an email sent to the misspelled suport@domain.com will go to support@domain.com if the catch-all feature has been activated for the latter. In this way, you can get emails from acquaintances 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 deleted. Only one mailbox per domain name can be a catch-all one and email forwarding cannot be set up for such a mailbox. This is so because of 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 received in a third-party mailbox.

Catch-all Emails in Shared Website Hosting

If you’ve got a Linux shared website hosting with us and you want to activate the catch-all option for a given mailbox that you’ve got in the web hosting account, it’ll take literally only a single click of the mouse in the Email Manager section of your Hepsia 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 name registered in the account. You can pick one address per domain by clicking the corresponding button. This will enable the feature momentarily, so all messages sent to misspelled addresses will be delivered there. Clicking on the button once again will disable the catch-all feature. If you have enabled email forwarding, our system will exhibit a cautionary notice and you won’t be able to enable the catch-all feature until you delete the forwarding or you can simply pick some other mailbox to be the catch-all one.

Catch-all Emails in Semi-dedicated Hosting

You’ll be able to set up a catch-all address with no more than a click in case you have a Linux semi-dedicated hosting with us and your emails are handled by our cloud web hosting platform. All the addresses that you set up using any domain hosted in your semi-dedicated account will be enumerated in the Hepsia hosting Control Panel’s Email Manager section. Each of them will have a small "Catch-all" icon on its right-hand side, so all it will take to activate the feature will be to click that icon. In the same way you’ll be able to remove the feature, if you no longer need it. Our system will let you know if you’re attempting to enable a second catch-all email address for a certain domain name or if there’s activated email forwarding, but it’ll never alter or disable anything automatically or without your approval.
