A catch-all email mailbox receives email messages sent to invalid addresses under the exact same domain. For example, an email 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. In this way, you can receive email messages from colleagues or clients who may have sent a message to your email address with a typo or to an obsolete one, which they may still have, but you have already deleted. Only one mailbox per domain name can be a catch-all one and email forwarding cannot be set up for such a mailbox. This is due to the fact that at some moment you may start receiving spam messages in the catch-all mailbox and the forwarding restriction means that the spam will not be received in a third-party mailbox.
Catch-all Emails in Shared Hosting
If you host a domain on our cloud web hosting platform and you’ve got a shared hosting account, you will be able to enable the catch-all feature for any e-mailbox that you set up under the domain. The Email Manager section of the Hepsia Control Panel comes with quite a few features, but it is remarkably easy to work with, so creating a catch-all mailbox takes only one single mouse click. All the email addresses that you have will be listed in this section alphabetically and you’ll just have to click the "Catch-all" button associated with the respective address. Our system will notify you if there’s already another catch-all mailbox activated for that domain or if the one that you would like to be a catch-all mailbox has email forwarding enabled, so you can either turn off the latter feature or select another mailbox. Deactivating the catch-all feature is just as simple and requires one more mouse click on the same button.
Catch-all Emails in Semi-dedicated Servers
The catch-all functionality can be enabled effortlessly in case you have a semi-dedicated server account with us. All the email addresses that you have set up using the domains hosted in your semi-dedicated server account will be enumerated in the Email Manager section of your Hepsia hosting Control Panel and you’ll see a small-size sign conveniently situated directly next to each of them. With just one single click of the mouse, you can enable or disable the catch-all option for any mailbox of your preference as long as there isn't another mailbox under that same domain with this option already enabled and there isn't active email forwarding. Alternatively, you can right-click on a mailbox and activate this feature through the menu that will pop up. If any of the prerequisites for creating a catch-all mailbox is not fulfilled, our system will inform you, but will not replace or deactivate anything automatically.
