A catch-all mailbox is one that gathers all the messages sent to non-existent addresses. For instance, if your email address is info@domain.com, but someone mistypes it and sends an email message to inof@domain.com, it will still be received in the catch-all mailbox that you have configured. Only one single mailbox per domain can have this feature activated and thus you’ll never miss messages because the other side has an obsolete email address or has made a mistake. The drawback of configuring a catch-all mailbox is that you may begin receiving lots of junk messages, but this problem can be resolved using anti-spam filtering software. It’s also crucial to remember that a mailbox with an activated catch-all feature cannot forward incoming emails to a 3rd-party address.

Catch-all Emails in Shared Web Hosting

You’ll be able to create a catch-all email mailbox easily if you’ve got a shared web hosting plan with our company. The Email Manager tool in our in-house developed Hepsia Control Panel is feature-laden, yet incredibly user-friendly, and it will allow you to activate various features, including the catch-all one, with no more than a couple of clicks of the mouse. All the mailboxes that you have set up will be listed in alphabetical order in this section and next to each of them you’ll see a tiny "Catch-all" icon. Clicking on it once will enable this feature, clicking on it once again will disable it. As you can have just one such mailbox per domain, our system will notify you if you already have a different mailbox with this feature enabled or if you have activated email forwarding.

Catch-all Emails in Semi-dedicated Hosting

You will be able to set up a catch-all email address with no more than a click if you have a Linux semi-dedicated hosting with us and your email messages are handled by our cloud web hosting platform. All the mailboxes that you create with any domain name hosted in the account will be enumerated in the Email Manager section of your Hepsia Control Panel. Each of them will have a small "Catch-all" icon on its right-hand side, so all it will take to enable this functionality will be to click on that icon. In the very same way you’ll be able to disable the feature, if you do not need it any longer. Our system will warn you if you are attempting to activate a 2nd catch-all mailbox for a certain domain name or if there’s active email forwarding, but it’ll never disable or alter anything automatically and without your permission.
