A catch-all mailbox receives email messages sent to inactive email addresses under the exact same domain. For example, a message sent to the misspelled suport@domain.com will be delivered to support@domain.com if the catch-all feature has been activated for the latter. In this way, you can get messages from buddies or clients 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 deleted. Just 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 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

In case you have a Linux website hosting with our company and you would like to enable the catch-all functionality for a certain e-mailbox that you have in the web hosting account, it’ll take literally only a single click in the Email Manager section of your Hepsia hosting Control Panel to achieve this. A catch-all button is available next to each email address that you have set up under any domain hosted in the account. You can choose one single address per domain by clicking the corresponding button. This will activate the feature immediately, so all email messages sent to misspelled email addresses will be re-sent there. Clicking the button again will disable the catch-all feature. If you have enabled email forwarding, our system will display a cautionary notification and you won’t be able to enable the catch-all feature until you delete the forwarding or you can simply pick a different mailbox to be the catch-all one.

Catch-all Emails in Semi-dedicated Hosting

The custom-built Hepsia hosting Control Panel that comes with every semi-dedicated server package that we’re offering will permit you to create a catch-all e-mailbox without any difficulties even in case you do not have much web/email hosting experience. All you have to do to accomplish that is click on the catch-all icon, which will be next to each email address that you have set up with your domains in the hosting Control Panel’s Email Manager section. As you can have just one mailbox with this feature per domain name, our system will let you know if you’ve already configured a different catch-all mailbox or if the one that you wish to use has email forwarding activated. In case you decide that you don’t want this feature any longer, you can turn it off by clicking once again on the same icon. The Email Manager section will also allow you to see your catch-all mailboxes at a glance.
