A catch-all mailbox receives emails sent to non-existent addresses under the exact same domain name. For example, an email message sent to the miswritten suport@domain.com will go to support@domain.com in case the catch-all feature has been activated for the latter. Thus, you can get messages from partners or customers who may have sent a message to your email address with a spelling error or to an obsolete one, which they may still have, but you have already deactivated. Just one single 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 some point you may start receiving spam email messages in the catch-all mailbox and the forwarding restriction implies that the spam will not be re-sent to a 3rd-party mailbox.

Catch-all Emails in Web Hosting

In case you’ve got a web hosting plan with us and you want to activate the catch-all option for a particular mailbox that you’ve got in your account, it will take literally only one mouse click in the Email Manager section of your Hepsia hosting Control Panel to achieve this. A catch-all button is available on the right side of each email address that you have set up under any domain name registered in the account. You can select one single email address per domain by clicking on the corresponding button. This will enable the feature right away, so all emails sent to misspelled addresses will be received there. Clicking the button once again will disable the catch-all feature. In case you have enabled email forwarding, our system will exhibit a cautionary message and you won’t be able to activate the catch-all feature till you deactivate the forwarding or you can simply select some other mailbox to be the catch-all one.

Catch-all Emails in Semi-dedicated Servers

You’ll be able to create a catch-all address with no more than a click in case you have a semi-dedicated plan with us and your emails are handled by our cloud hosting platform. All the mailboxes that you set up with any domain name hosted in your semi-dedicated account will be listed in the Hepsia Control Panel’s Email Manager section. Each of them will have a small "Catch-all" icon next to it, so all it will take to enable this option will be to click on that icon. In the very same way you’ll be able to turn off the feature, if you don’t need it any longer. Our system will let you know if you’re trying to activate a second catch-all address for a certain domain name or if there is enabled email forwarding, but it’ll never disable or change anything automatically and without your consent.
