A catch-all email mailbox is one that collects all the emails sent to inactive addresses. For example, if your email address is info@domain.com, but someone mistypes it and sends an email to inof@domain.com, it will still be received in the catch-all mailbox that you have created. Just one single mailbox per domain name can have this feature activated and in this way you will never miss messages because the other party has an out-of-date email address or has made a spelling mistake. The disadvantage of setting up a catch-all mailbox is that you may begin receiving plenty of junk messages, but this issue can be rectified by using anti-spam filtering software. It is also vital to bear in mind that a mailbox with an enabled catch-all feature cannot redirect incoming messages to a 3rd-party mailbox.

Catch-all Emails in Cloud Web Hosting

Creating a catch-all e-mailbox will be amazingly easy in case you’ve got a cloud web hosting plan with us. You can activate the feature through our advanced, yet easy-to-use Email Manager tool, which is an essential part of the Hepsia Control Panel, via which you will administer your shared hosting account. You will see all the email addresses that you’ve set up listed alphabetically and to the right of each one of them there will be a small-size "Catch-all" icon, which will immediately tell you if a particular mailbox gets all the messages pertaining to a given domain name or not. With a single mouse click on the icon you can enable or disable the feature whenever you wish. If there is activated email forwarding or in case another mailbox has already been configured as a catch-all one for a particular domain, you’ll receive a warning from our system. The latter will not disable/replace anything automatically or without your permission.

Catch-all Emails in Semi-dedicated Servers

A catch-all email address can be configured with a couple of clicks of the mouse if you have a semi-dedicated hosting plan with our company. The hosting account will be managed through our in-house built Hepsia Control Panel and you’ll be able to set up mailboxes using any domain name hosted there. To enable the catch-all option for a given mailbox, you’ll have to click on the icon with the same name, which will be to the right of each email address. Disabling this option can be done in the exact same fashion and will not take more than a click either. In case the catch-all feature has already been activated for a certain domain name, you will get a warning text message. The same goes if the mailbox that you would like to be a catch-all one has email forwarding activated, as our system will never modify or deactivate anything automatically.
