A catch-all email mailbox is one that gathers all the emails sent to nonexistent email addresses. For instance, if your email address is info@domain.com, but somebody misspells it and sends an email message to inof@domain.com, it will still be received in the catch-all mailbox that you have created. Only one mailbox per domain name can have this feature enabled and thus you’ll never miss messages because the other party has an outdated email address or has made a mistake. The disadvantage of having a catch-all mailbox is that you may begin receiving plenty of junk messages, but this problem can be rectified by using anti-spam protection software. It’s also important to know that a mailbox with an enabled catch-all functionality cannot redirect inbound emails to a third-party address.

Catch-all Emails in Cloud Hosting

Setting up a catch-all email mailbox will be very easy in case you have a Linux cloud package with us. You can enable the feature through our powerful, yet user-friendly Email Manager tool, which is an essential part of the Hepsia hosting Control Panel, via which you’ll administer the account itself. You’ll see all the email addresses that you have set up enumerated alphabetically and next to each one of them there will be a small "Catch-all" icon, which will instantly reveal to you whether a certain mailbox receives all the messages for a given domain name or not. With one mouse click on the icon you can activate or deactivate the feature at any time. If there is active email forwarding or in case another mailbox has already been configured as a catch-all one for a specific domain, you’ll receive a warning from our system. The latter will not disable/replace anything automatically or without your approval.

Catch-all Emails in Semi-dedicated Hosting

A catch-all address can be set up with a couple of clicks in case you’ve got a Linux semi-dedicated package with us. The hosting account will be managed through our custom Hepsia hosting Control Panel and you’ll be able to create mailboxes using any domain hosted here. To enable the catch-all feature for a particular mailbox, you’ll have to click on the symbol with the exact same name, which will be next to each email address. Disabling this option can be achieved in the very same fashion and will not take more than a click either. In case the catch-all feature has already been activated for a given domain, you will get a warning alert. 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 disable or change any feature automatically.
