A catch-all mailbox is one that gathers all the messages sent to invalid addresses. For example, if your email address is info@domain.com, but somebody miswrites it and sends an email message to inof@domain.com, it will still be received in the catch-all mailbox that you have set up. Just one mailbox per domain name can have this feature enabled and in this way you’ll never miss emails because the other side has an outdated address or has made a mistake. The drawback of configuring a catch-all mailbox is that you may begin receiving a lot of spam email messages, but this problem can be solved by using anti-spam protection software. It’s also crucial to bear in mind that a mailbox with an activated catch-all functionality cannot forward incoming email messages to a 3rd-party mailbox.

Catch-all Emails in Shared Hosting

If you host a domain name on our cloud web hosting platform and you have a shared hosting account, you’ll be able to activate the catch-all feature for any e-mailbox that you set up under the domain name. The Email Manager section of the Hepsia Control Panel includes quite a few functions, but it’s unbelievably easy to use, so configuring a catch-all mailbox requires only a click of the mouse. All the email addresses that you’ve set up will be listed in this section in alphabetical order and you’ll just have to click the "Catch-all" button associated with the given address. Our system will warn you if there is already another catch-all mailbox activated for that domain name or if the one that you’d like to be a catch-all mailbox has email forwarding enabled, so you can either deactivate the latter feature or select a different mailbox. Disabling the catch-all feature is just as simple and takes yet another mouse click on the same button.

Catch-all Emails in Semi-dedicated Servers

A catch-all email address can be created with a few clicks of the mouse in case you have a Linux semi-dedicated plan with us. The hosting account will be administered through our custom-created Hepsia hosting Control Panel and you’ll be able to set up email addresses under any domain hosted here. To enable the catch-all feature for a certain mailbox, you’ll have to click the logo with the same name, which will be on the right side of each mailbox. Deactivating this functionality can be accomplished in the exact same way and will not require more than a click either. If the catch-all functionality has already been activated for a given domain name, you’ll get a warning message. The same is valid if the mailbox that you’d like to be a catch-all one has email forwarding activated, as our system will never deactivate or edit any feature automatically.
