A catch-all email mailbox receives messages sent to non-existent addresses under the very same domain. For instance, an email 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 get email messages from acquaintances or customers who may have sent a message to your email address with a spelling error or to an outdated one, which they may still have, but you have already deleted. Only 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 begin receiving spam emails in the catch-all mailbox and the forwarding restriction means that the spam will not be delivered to a third-party mailbox.
Catch-all Emails in Shared Web Hosting
You will be able to configure a catch-all e-mailbox effortlessly in case you have a shared web hosting plan with us. The Email Manager tool in our in-house built Hepsia hosting Control Panel is feature-loaded, yet unbelievably intuitive, and it will enable you to enable various options, including the catch-all one, with no more than a few mouse clicks. All the email addresses that you have will be displayed in alphabetical order in this section and on the right-hand side of each one of them you will notice a small-size "Catch-all" sign. Clicking it once will activate this option, clicking it twice will deactivate it. Since you can have just one such catch-all mailbox per domain, our system will notify you if you already have another mailbox with this option enabled or if you have enabled email forwarding.
Catch-all Emails in Semi-dedicated Hosting
The catch-all option can be activated without effort if you have a semi-dedicated server account with our company. All the email addresses that you have set up using the domain names hosted in your semi-dedicated server account will be enumerated in the Hepsia hosting Control Panel’s Email Manager section and you’ll find a small button handily situated right next to each one of them. With just a mouse click, you can enable or disable the catch-all option for any mailbox of your choice provided that there isn't another mailbox under the same domain with the option already enabled and there isn't active email forwarding. Alternatively, you can right-click on an email address and activate this option using the context menu that will show up. In case any of the conditions for setting up a catch-all mailbox is not matched, our system will notify you, but will not replace or disable anything automatically.
