A catch-all mailbox receives emails sent to invalid email addresses under the same domain. For example, an email message sent to the mistyped suport@domain.com will go to support@domain.com in case the catch-all feature has been enabled for the latter. Thus, you can get email messages from buddies or clients who may have sent a message to your email address with a spelling mistake or to an old one, which they may still have, but you have already deactivated. Only one mailbox per domain can be a catch-all one and email forwarding cannot be activated for such a mailbox. This is so because of the fact that at a certain point you may start receiving spam messages in the catch-all mailbox and the forwarding limitation implies that the spam will not be re-sent to a 3rd-party mailbox.

Catch-all Emails in Cloud Hosting

In case you host a domain name on our cloud platform and you’ve got a cloud hosting account, you’ll be able to enable the catch-all functionality for any mailbox that you set up under the domain name. The Email Manager section of the Hepsia Control Panel offers quite a few functions, but it’s incredibly easy to use, so configuring a catch-all mailbox requires just a click of the mouse. All the email addresses that you have created will be enumerated in this section alphabetically and you’ll just have to click the "Catch-all" button for the particular email address. Our system will alert you if there’s already another catch-all mailbox enabled for that domain name or if the one that you’d like to be a catch-all mailbox has email forwarding activated, so you can either turn off the latter feature or pick another mailbox. Disabling the catch-all feature is just as easy and takes yet another mouse click on the very same button.

Catch-all Emails in Semi-dedicated Servers

The custom-developed Hepsia hosting Control Panel that comes with every semi-dedicated server package that we’re offering will allow you to set up a catch-all email mailbox without any difficulties even if you don’t have much email/web hosting experience. All you need to do to achieve that is click on the catch-all icon, which will be to the right of each email address that you have created with your domain names in the Control Panel’s Email Manager section. Since you can have just one single mailbox with this feature per domain, our system will let you know if you’ve already configured another catch-all mailbox or if the one that you wish to use has email forwarding activated. In case you decide that you do not want this feature anymore, you can turn it off by clicking again on the very same icon. The Email Manager will also permit you to see your catch-all mailboxes at a glance.
