A catch-all email mailbox receives messages sent to inactive email addresses under the exact same domain name. For instance, an email sent to the mistyped [email protected] will be delivered to [email protected] in case the catch-all feature has been activated for the latter. In this way, you can receive email messages from pals or clients who may have sent a message to your email address with a typographical error or to an outdated one, which they may still have, but you have already disabled. Just one single mailbox per domain name can be a catch-all one and email forwarding cannot be set up for such a mailbox. This is so because of the fact that at a certain moment you may begin receiving spam messages in the catch-all mailbox and the forwarding restriction means that the spam will not be redirected to a 3rd-party mailbox.

Catch-all Emails in Cloud Hosting

In case you’ve got a cloud hosting package with our company and you would like to enable the catch-all functionality for a specific email mailbox that you have in the web hosting account, it’ll take literally only a click in the Email Manager section of your Hepsia Control Panel to do that. A catch-all button is available next to each email address that you have set up under any domain name registered in the account. You can pick one email address per domain name by clicking the corresponding button. This will enable the feature instantaneously, so all email messages sent to miswritten addresses will be received there. Clicking on the button for a second time will deactivate the catch-all feature. In case you have active email forwarding, our system will show a cautionary message and you will not be able to enable the catch-all feature unless you disable the forwarding or you can simply choose a different mailbox to be the catch-all one.

Catch-all Emails in Semi-dedicated Hosting

You will be able to configure a catch-all email address with no more than a click if you’ve got a Linux semi-dedicated hosting package with us and your emails are handled by our cloud platform. All the mailboxes that you set up using any domain name hosted in your semi-dedicated account will be listed in the Hepsia hosting Control Panel’s Email Manager section. Each of them will have a mini "Catch-all" icon on its right-hand side, so all it will take to enable this option will be to click that icon. In the same manner you’ll be able to disable the feature, in case you do not need it anymore. Our system will inform you if you’re attempting to enable a 2nd catch-all address for a specific domain name or in case there’s active email forwarding, but it’ll never change or deactivate anything automatically and without your permission.
