A catch-all mailbox receives messages sent to non-existent addresses under the exact same domain. For example, an email sent to the mistyped 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 acquaintances or customers who may have sent a message to your email address with a typo 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 activated for such a mailbox. The latter is due to the fact that at some moment you may start receiving spam email messages in the catch-all mailbox and the forwarding limitation means that the spam will not be redirected to a 3rd-party mailbox.
Catch-all Emails in Shared Hosting
You’ll be able to set up a catch-all email mailbox easily in case you have a shared hosting plan with our company. The Email Manager in our in-house built Hepsia hosting Control Panel is feature-rich, yet very intuitive, and it will enable you to activate different options, including the catch-all one, with only a couple of clicks. All the email addresses that you’ve created will be listed in alphabetical order in this section and next to each one of them you’ll see a small-size "Catch-all" sign. Clicking it once will enable this feature, clicking it once again will deactivate it. Since you can have only one such catch-all mailbox per domain name, our system will notify you if you already have another mailbox with this option enabled or if you’ve got activated email forwarding.
Catch-all Emails in Semi-dedicated Servers
The custom-created Hepsia Control Panel that is included with every semi-dedicated server plan that we offer will permit you to set up a catch-all email mailbox with ease even in case you don’t have much email/web hosting experience. All it takes to achieve that is to click on the catch-all icon, which will be on the right-hand side of each mailbox that you’ve set up using your domain names in the Control Panel’s Email Manager section. As you can have just one mailbox with this feature per domain, our system will let you know if you’ve already created another catch-all mailbox or if the one that you would like to use has email forwarding enabled. In case you decide that you do not want the feature any longer, you can deactivate it by clicking once again on the very same icon. The Email Manager will also allow you to view your catch-all mailboxes at a glance.
