A catch-all email mailbox receives messages sent to non-existent addresses under the same domain. For example, a message sent to the misspelled suport@domain.com will go to support@domain.com in case the catch-all feature has been activated for the latter. In this way, you can get emails from colleagues or customers who may have sent a message to your email address with a spelling mistake or to an obsolete one, which they may still have, but you have already deactivated. Only one single mailbox per domain can be a catch-all one and email forwarding cannot be activated 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 restriction implies that the spam will not be delivered to a 3rd-party mailbox.
Catch-all Emails in Website Hosting
You’ll be able to configure a catch-all email mailbox without effort if you have a website hosting account with us. The Email Manager in our custom Hepsia Control Panel is feature-loaded, yet incredibly user-friendly, and it will permit you to activate various features, including the catch-all one, with just a couple of clicks of the mouse. All the email addresses that you’ve created will be displayed in alphabetical order in this section and on the right-hand side of each of them you’ll notice a small-size "Catch-all" icon. Clicking on it once will activate this feature, clicking it for a second time will deactivate it. Since you can have just one such catch-all mailbox per domain name, our system will alert you if you already have another one with this feature enabled or if you have active email forwarding.
Catch-all Emails in Semi-dedicated Hosting
A catch-all address can be set up with several clicks of the mouse in case you have a Linux semi-dedicated hosting with our company. The semi-dedicated account will be administered via our in-house built Hepsia Control Panel and you will be able to set up email addresses using any domain name hosted here. To activate the catch-all feature for a specific mailbox, you will have to click on the symbol with the same name, which will be next to each mailbox. Disabling this option can be accomplished in the exact same fashion and will not require more than one click either. In case a catch-all mailbox has already been enabled for a specific domain, you’ll get a warning notice. The same goes if the mailbox that you wish to be a catch-all one has email forwarding enabled, as our system will never disable or replace any feature automatically.
