A catch-all email mailbox receives emails sent to nonexistent addresses under the same domain. For example, an email message sent to the miswritten suport@domain.com will go to support@domain.com if the catch-all feature has been activated for the latter. In this way, you can receive messages from partners 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. Just one 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 a certain moment you may start receiving spam email messages in the catch-all mailbox and the forwarding limitation means that the spam will not be received in a third-party mailbox.
Catch-all Emails in Shared Hosting
Configuring a catch-all e-mailbox will be rather easy if you have a shared hosting with us. You can activate this option through our powerful, yet easy-to-use Email Manager tool, which is an essential part of the Hepsia hosting Control Panel, via which you’ll administer your shared web hosting account. You’ll see all the mailboxes that you’ve created shown in alphabetical order and to the right of each of them there will be a small "Catch-all" icon, which will instantly inform you whether a specific mailbox gets all the emails associated with a given domain name or not. With one mouse click on the icon you can activate or deactivate the feature whenever you wish. In case there’s active email forwarding or if a different mailbox has already been set up as a catch-all one for a certain domain, you’ll get a notification from our system. The latter will not disable/replace anything automatically and without your consent.
Catch-all Emails in Semi-dedicated Servers
A catch-all address can be created with a few mouse clicks in case you have a semi-dedicated server with us. The hosting account will be administered through our custom-created Hepsia hosting Control Panel and you will be able to set up email addresses using any domain name registered here. To activate the catch-all functionality for a certain mailbox, you will need to click the button with the same name, which will be on the right-hand side of each mailbox. Deactivating this functionality can be done in the very same way and will not take more than one click either. In case the catch-all functionality has already been enabled for a certain domain name, you will receive a warning. The same is valid if the mailbox that you wish to be a catch-all one has email forwarding enabled, as our system will never replace or deactivate anything automatically.
