A catch-all mailbox receives email messages sent to non-existent email addresses under the very same domain name. For example, an email sent to the misspelled 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 colleagues or customers who may have sent a message to your email address with a spelling mistake or to an obsolete one, which they may still have, but you have already deleted. Only one single mailbox per domain can be a catch-all one and email forwarding cannot be enabled for such a mailbox. The latter is due to the fact that at some point you may begin receiving spam messages in the catch-all mailbox and the forwarding limitation implies that the spam will not be redirected to a third-party mailbox.

Catch-all Emails in Website Hosting

You’ll be able to set up a catch-all email mailbox without difficulty if you have a website hosting plan with us. The Email Manager tool in our in-house built Hepsia hosting Control Panel is feature-rich, yet amazingly user-friendly, and it will permit you to activate various options, including the catch-all one, with just several mouse clicks. All the mailboxes that you’ve created will be displayed in alphabetical order in this section and next to each of them you’ll see a small "Catch-all" symbol. Clicking on it once will enable the feature, clicking on it again will deactivate it. As you can have only one such mailbox per domain, our system will warn you if you’ve already got a different one with this feature enabled or if you’ve got active email forwarding.

Catch-all Emails in Semi-dedicated Servers

A catch-all address can be created with several clicks if you’ve got a semi-dedicated plan with our company. The semi-dedicated hosting account will be administered via our custom-developed Hepsia hosting Control Panel and you’ll be able to create mailboxes using any domain registered there. To enable the catch-all functionality for a given mailbox, you’ll have to click on the button with the same name, which will be to the right of each mailbox. Deactivating the feature can be accomplished in the exact same way and will not require more than a click either. In case the catch-all functionality has already been enabled for a certain domain name, you will receive a warning message. The same is valid if the mailbox that you’d like to be a catch-all one has email forwarding activated, as our system will never alter or disable any feature automatically.
