A catch-all mailbox receives emails sent to inactive addresses under the same domain name. For instance, an email message sent to the mistyped suport@domain.com will go to support@domain.com in case the catch-all feature has been enabled for the latter. Thus, you can receive messages from friends or clients who may have sent a message to your email address with a typographical error or to an old one, which they may still have, but you have already deactivated. Just one 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 some point you may start receiving spam emails in the catch-all mailbox and the forwarding limitation means that the spam will not be redirected to a 3rd-party mailbox.

Catch-all Emails in Shared Hosting

You’ll be able to create a catch-all mailbox without any effort in case you’ve got a shared hosting plan with our company. The Email Manager in our custom-created Hepsia hosting Control Panel is feature-rich, yet extremely simple to use, and it will allow you to enable different options, including the catch-all one, with only a couple of clicks of the mouse. All the email addresses that you’ve got will be shown in alphabetical order in this section and next to each of them you’ll notice a tiny "Catch-all" button. Clicking on it once will enable this option, clicking it for a second time will deactivate it. Since you can have only one such catch-all mailbox per domain, our system will inform you if you’ve already got another mailbox with this option activated or if you have enabled email forwarding.

Catch-all Emails in Semi-dedicated Servers

You will be able to configure a catch-all email address with no more than one click in case you’ve got a semi-dedicated server with us and your emails are handled by our cloud platform. All the email addresses that you set up with any domain name hosted in your semi-dedicated account will be displayed in the Email Manager section of your Hepsia hosting Control Panel. Each of them will have a small-size "Catch-all" icon on its right-hand side, so all it will take to activate the feature will be to click on that icon. In the exact same fashion you’ll be able to disable the feature, if you don’t need it any longer. Our system will warn you if you are attempting to activate a second catch-all email address for a particular domain or if there is activated email forwarding, but it’ll never alter or disable any feature automatically and without your approval.
