A catch-all mailbox receives messages sent to non-existent email addresses under the same domain. For example, an email message 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 receive email messages from colleagues or customers who may have sent a message to your email address with a spelling error or to an old one, which they may still have, but you have already deactivated. Just one single mailbox per domain can be a catch-all one and email forwarding cannot be activated for such a mailbox. The latter is due to the fact that at a certain moment you may start receiving spam email messages in the catch-all mailbox and the forwarding restriction implies that the spam will not be received in a third-party mailbox.

Catch-all Emails in Cloud Hosting

You’ll be able to create a catch-all e-mailbox without any difficulty in case you have a cloud hosting account with our company. The Email Manager in our in-house created Hepsia hosting Control Panel is feature-laden, yet exceptionally easy to use, and it will allow you to enable various options, including the catch-all one, with only a few clicks. All the email addresses that you have will be enumerated alphabetically in this section and on the right-hand side of each of them you will find a mini "Catch-all" symbol. Clicking it once will activate this feature, clicking on it again will deactivate it. As you can have just one such mailbox per domain name, our system will inform you if you already have a different one with this option enabled or if you’ve got enabled email forwarding.

Catch-all Emails in Semi-dedicated Servers

The catch-all functionality can be enabled easily in case you’ve got a semi-dedicated server account with us. All the email addresses that you have created using the domain names hosted in your semi-dedicated server account will be enumerated in the Email Manager section of your Hepsia Control Panel and you will see a tiny button conveniently situated right next to each one of them. With just one single mouse click, you can activate or deactivate the catch-all option for any mailbox of your desire as long as there isn't another mailbox under the same domain with this option already activated and there isn't activated email forwarding. Instead, you can right-click on a mailbox and enable this feature using the context menu that will show up. If any of the preconditions for creating a catch-all mailbox is not answered, our system will notify you, but will not deactivate or replace anything automatically.
