A catch-all mailbox receives emails sent to invalid addresses under the very same domain. For example, an email message sent to the misspelled suport@domain.com will go to support@domain.com if the catch-all feature has been activated for the latter. Thus, you can get email messages from partners or clients who may have sent a message to your email address with a spelling error or to an old 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 enabled for such a mailbox. This is due to the fact that at a certain moment you may begin receiving spam messages in the catch-all mailbox and the forwarding restriction implies that the spam will not be delivered to a 3rd-party mailbox.

Catch-all Emails in Shared Website Hosting

In case you’ve got a Linux shared website hosting with our company and you want to activate the catch-all functionality for a certain email mailbox that you have in the web hosting account, it’ll take literally only one mouse click in the Email Manager section of your Hepsia Control Panel to achieve that. A catch-all button is available next to each email address that you have created under any domain registered in the account. You can choose one single email address per domain name by clicking the respective button. This will activate the feature instantly, so all email messages sent to misspelled email addresses will be re-sent there. Clicking the button for a second time will deactivate the catch-all feature. If you’ve got activated email forwarding, our system will exhibit a warning notification and you will not be able to enable the catch-all feature until you remove the forwarding or you can simply choose another mailbox to be the catch-all one.

Catch-all Emails in Semi-dedicated Hosting

A catch-all address can be configured with a few clicks in case you’ve got a Linux semi-dedicated hosting with our company. The hosting account will be managed through our custom Hepsia hosting Control Panel and you’ll be able to create mailboxes using any domain hosted there. To activate the catch-all option for a given mailbox, you will need to click the button with the exact same name, which will be next to each email address. Disabling this option can be accomplished in the exact same fashion and will not require more than a click either. If a catch-all mailbox has already been activated for a particular domain name, you’ll receive a warning alert. The same goes if the mailbox that you’d like to be a catch-all one has email forwarding enabled, as our system will never deactivate or modify any feature automatically.
