A catch-all mailbox receives email messages sent to invalid email addresses under the 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 enabled for the latter. In this way, you can get emails from pals or clients who may have sent a message to your email address with a typo or to an out-of-date one, which they may still have, but you have already disabled.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 activated for such a mailbox. This 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 redirected to a third-party mailbox.

Catch-all Emails in Cloud Web Hosting

Setting up a catch-all e-mailbox will be amazingly easy if you have a Linux cloud web hosting with our company. You can enable this option through our advanced, albeit simple-to-use Email Manager tool, which is an integral part of the Hepsia Control Panel, via which you’ll manage the hosting account itself. You will see all the mailboxes that you’ve set up shown alphabetically and to the right of each one there will be a small "Catch-all" icon, which will immediately reveal to you whether a certain mailbox stores all the messages associated with a given domain name or not. With one mouse click on the icon you can activate or deactivate the feature at any time. If there is enabled email forwarding or if some other mailbox has already been set up as a catch-all one for a particular domain name, you will get a warning from our system. The latter won’t replace/deactivate anything automatically or without your approval.

Catch-all Emails in Semi-dedicated Hosting

The in-house built Hepsia Control Panel that is included with each semi-dedicated server package that we are offering will allow you to create a catch-all mailbox without effort even in case you don’t have much email/web hosting experience. All you need to do to accomplish that is click the catch-all icon, which will be on the right-hand side of each email address that you have created using your domain names in the Email Manager section of the Control Panel. Since you can have only one single mailbox with this feature per domain name, our system will warn you if you have already set up a different catch-all mailbox or if the one that you’d like to use has email forwarding activated. If you decide that you don’t need the feature anymore, you can deactivate it by clicking once again on the same icon. The Email Manager will also allow you to view your catch-all mailboxes at a glance.
