A catch-all mailbox receives emails sent to inactive addresses under the very same domain name. 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get email messages from colleagues or clients who may have sent a message to your email address with a typo or to an outdated one, which they may still have, but you have already deleted. Only one single mailbox per domain can be a catch-all one and email forwarding cannot be enabled 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 re-sent to a 3rd-party mailbox.

Catch-all Emails in Cloud Web Hosting

Configuring a catch-all email mailbox will be really easy if you have a Linux cloud web hosting package with us. You can enable the feature through our advanced, albeit simple-to-work-with Email Manager tool, which is built into the Hepsia hosting Control Panel, via which you’ll manage your hosting account. You’ll find all the mailboxes that you’ve set up listed in alphabetical order and on the right side of each one of them there will be a mini "Catch-all" icon, which will instantaneously show you if a particular mailbox stores all the emails pertaining to a certain domain name or not. With one single click on the icon you can enable or disable this option whenever you like. If there is active email forwarding or in case another mailbox has already been set up as a catch-all one for a certain domain name, you will get a warning message from our system. The latter will not 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 if you’ve got a Linux semi-dedicated package with our company. The hosting account will be administered through our custom Hepsia Control Panel and you will be able to set up email addresses with any domain registered here. To activate the catch-all feature for a mailbox, you’ll have to click on the logo with the same name, which will be next to each email address. Disabling the feature can be achieved in the same manner and will not require more than a click either. If the catch-all functionality has already been enabled for a particular domain name, you will get a warning alert. The same is valid if the mailbox that you want to be a catch-all one has email forwarding enabled, as our system will never disable or replace any feature automatically.
