A catch-all email mailbox is one that captures all the messages sent to invalid addresses. For instance, if your email address is info@domain.com, but someone misspells 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 mailbox per domain name can have this feature enabled and in this way you’ll never miss messages because the other side has an obsolete address or has made a typographical error. The drawback of configuring a catch-all mailbox is that you may begin receiving lots of spam email messages, but this problem can be fixed using anti-spam filtering software. It is also vital to keep in mind that a mailbox with an enabled catch-all functionality cannot forward incoming messages to a third-party address.

Catch-all Emails in Cloud Hosting

If you host a domain on our cloud web hosting platform and you have a cloud hosting account, you will be able to activate the catch-all functionality for any email mailbox that you set up under the domain. The Email Manager section of the Hepsia hosting Control Panel comes with quite a lot of features, but it is amazingly user-friendly, so creating a catch-all mailbox requires only one single click. All the email addresses that you have created will be listed in this section alphabetically and you’ll only need to click the "Catch-all" button pertaining to the respective email address. Our system will notify 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 disable the latter feature or select another mailbox. Deactivating the catch-all option is just as simple and takes yet another mouse click on the exact same button.

Catch-all Emails in Semi-dedicated Hosting

A catch-all address can be configured with several mouse clicks if you’ve got a Linux semi-dedicated package with our company. The semi-dedicated hosting account will be managed via our custom-built Hepsia hosting Control Panel and you’ll be able to set up mailboxes under any domain hosted there. To enable the catch-all feature for a particular mailbox, you’ll have to click on the button with the exact same name, which will be on the right side of each email address. Disabling this option can be accomplished in the exact same manner and will not take more than one click either. In case the catch-all option has already been enabled for a specific domain, you will get a warning note. The same is valid if the mailbox that you wish to be a catch-all one has email forwarding activated, as our system will never replace or disable any feature automatically.
