A catch-all mailbox receives messages sent to inactive email addresses under the exact same domain name. For example, a message sent to the mistyped suport@domain.com will go to support@domain.com if the catch-all feature has been activated for the latter. In this way, you can receive messages from buddies or clients who may have sent a message to your email address with a typo or to an outdated one, which they may still have, but you have already disabled. Only one single mailbox per domain name can be a catch-all one and email forwarding cannot be enabled for such a mailbox. This is due to the fact that at some moment you may begin receiving spam messages in the catch-all mailbox and the forwarding limitation implies that the spam will not be sent to a third-party mailbox.

Catch-all Emails in Shared Hosting

You’ll be able to set up a catch-all mailbox without any difficulty if you’ve got a shared hosting account with us. The Email Manager tool in our custom Hepsia Control Panel is full-featured, yet extremely easy to work with, and it will permit you to enable different features, including the catch-all one, with just a couple of clicks. All the mailboxes that you have set up will be shown in alphabetical order in this section and to the right of each one you’ll see a small "Catch-all" button. Clicking it once will enable this feature, clicking it once more will disable it. Since you can have only one such mailbox per domain, our system will inform you if you already have a different one with this feature activated or if you’ve got activated email forwarding.

Catch-all Emails in Semi-dedicated Servers

A catch-all email address can be created with several mouse clicks in case you’ve got a semi-dedicated server with us. The semi-dedicated account will be managed via our in-house built Hepsia hosting Control Panel and you will be able to create mailboxes using any domain registered here. To enable the catch-all functionality for a given mailbox, you will have to click on the icon with the same name, which will be on the right-hand side of each mailbox. Deactivating the feature can be accomplished in the same fashion and will not require more than one click either. In case the catch-all functionality has already been activated for a particular domain name, you’ll receive a warning note. The same goes if the mailbox that you’d like to be a catch-all one has email forwarding activated, as our system will never disable or modify anything automatically.
