A catch-all email mailbox receives email messages sent to inactive addresses under the very same domain. For instance, a message sent to the misspelled suport@domain.com will be delivered to support@domain.com if the catch-all feature has been enabled for the latter. Thus, you can receive emails from acquaintances 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 deleted. Just one mailbox per domain name can be a catch-all one and email forwarding cannot be activated for such a mailbox. This is due to the fact that at a certain moment you may start receiving spam messages in the catch-all mailbox and the forwarding limitation implies that the spam will not be delivered to a 3rd-party mailbox.

Catch-all Emails in Shared Web Hosting

You’ll be able to create a catch-all email mailbox without any difficulty if you’ve got a shared web hosting account with us. The Email Manager tool in our in-house created Hepsia Control Panel is feature-loaded, yet surprisingly easy to use, and it will enable you to activate different features, including the catch-all one, with just a couple of clicks. All the email addresses that you have will be displayed alphabetically in this section and on the right-hand side of each one of them you’ll notice a mini "Catch-all" symbol. Clicking on it once will enable this option, clicking it again will disable it. Since you can have only one such mailbox per domain name, our system will inform you if you already have another mailbox with this feature enabled or if you’ve got active email forwarding.

Catch-all Emails in Semi-dedicated Hosting

A catch-all email address can be set up with a few mouse clicks in case you’ve got a Linux semi-dedicated hosting with us. The semi-dedicated hosting account will be administered via our in-house created Hepsia hosting Control Panel and you’ll be able to set up email addresses using any domain registered here. To activate the catch-all feature for a particular mailbox, you’ll have to click on the logo with the same name, which will be next to each email address. Deactivating the feature can be accomplished in the exact same fashion and will not take more than one click either. In case the catch-all functionality has already been enabled for a given domain, you’ll receive a warning message. The same goes if the mailbox that you would like to be a catch-all one has email forwarding activated, as our system will never deactivate or edit anything automatically.
