A catch-all email mailbox receives messages sent to non-existent addresses under the exact same domain name. For instance, a message sent to the miswritten 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 receive messages from mates or customers 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 deactivated. Just one single mailbox per domain 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 begin receiving spam emails in the catch-all mailbox and the forwarding limitation implies that the spam will not be sent to a 3rd-party mailbox.

Catch-all Emails in Shared Website Hosting

Configuring a catch-all mailbox will be unbelievably easy if you have a shared website hosting plan with us. You can activate the feature through our advanced, yet easy-to-use Email Manager, which is an essential part of the Hepsia hosting Control Panel, via which you will administer the shared web hosting account itself. You will find all the email addresses that you have created shown alphabetically and next to each of them there will be a mini "Catch-all" icon, which will immediately notify you if a specific mailbox receives all the email messages associated with a certain domain name or not. With one click on the icon you can activate or deactivate the feature whenever you want. If there’s active email forwarding or if another mailbox has already been configured as a catch-all one for a certain domain, you’ll receive a warning message from our system. The latter won’t replace/deactivate anything automatically and without your consent.

Catch-all Emails in Semi-dedicated Servers

A catch-all address can be configured with a few clicks of the mouse in case you have a semi-dedicated plan with our company. The semi-dedicated account will be administered via our custom-built Hepsia Control Panel and you will be able to create email addresses under any domain name hosted there. To activate the catch-all functionality for a particular mailbox, you will have to click on the button with the same name, which will be on the right side of each email address. Deactivating this functionality can be achieved in the exact same manner and will not take more than one click either. In case the catch-all functionality has already been activated for a particular domain, you will get a warning notification. The same is valid if the mailbox that you would like to be a catch-all one has email forwarding activated, as our system will never deactivate or modify any feature automatically.
