A catch-all email mailbox receives email messages sent to nonexistent addresses under the exact same domain. For example, a message sent to the mistyped suport@domain.com will be delivered to support@domain.com if the catch-all feature has been activated for the latter. Thus, you can receive messages from acquaintances 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 disabled. Only one single mailbox per domain can be a catch-all one and email forwarding cannot be enabled for such a mailbox. This is so because of the fact that at a certain point you may start receiving spam email messages in the catch-all mailbox and the forwarding limitation implies that the spam will not be re-sent to a 3rd-party mailbox.

Catch-all Emails in Web Hosting

If you’ve got a web hosting with us and you would like to activate the catch-all option for a certain email mailbox that you have in your hosting account, it’ll take literally only a single click in the Email Manager section of your Hepsia hosting Control Panel to accomplish that. A catch-all button is available to the right of each and every email address that you have set up under any domain registered in the account. You can choose one address per domain name by clicking on the respective button. This will enable the feature immediately, so all email messages sent to mistyped email addresses will be received there. Clicking the button once more will turn off the catch-all feature. If you have enabled email forwarding, our system will exhibit a cautionary note and you will not be able to activate the catch-all feature unless you remove the forwarding or you can simply choose some other mailbox to be the catch-all one.

Catch-all Emails in Semi-dedicated Servers

You’ll be able to create a catch-all address with no more than one click in case you have a Linux semi-dedicated hosting service with us and your email messages are handled by our cloud hosting platform. All the mailboxes that you create using any domain name hosted in the semi-dedicated account will be displayed in the Email Manager section of your Hepsia Control Panel. Each of them will have a small "Catch-all" icon next to it, so all it will take to enable this feature will be to click on that icon. In the exact same manner you will be able to disable the feature, in case you do not need it anymore. Our system will warn you if you are attempting to activate a 2nd catch-all email address for a certain domain or in case there’s active email forwarding, but it will never disable or change anything automatically or without your consent.
