A catch-all mailbox is one that gathers all the messages sent to nonexistent addresses. For example, if your email address is info@domain.com, but somebody mistypes it and sends an email to inof@domain.com, it will still be received in the catch-all mailbox that you have configured. Only one single mailbox per domain name can have this feature enabled and thus you will never miss messages because the other party has an obsolete email address or has made a mistake. The disadvantage of creating a catch-all mailbox is that you may begin receiving plenty of spam email messages, but this problem can be resolved using an anti-spam filtering solution. It is also crucial to keep in mind that a mailbox with an active catch-all feature cannot redirect incoming messages to a 3rd-party email address.

Catch-all Emails in Cloud Hosting

Creating a catch-all e-mailbox will be truly easy if you’ve got a cloud plan with our company. You can enable this feature through our advanced, yet easy-to-work-with Email Manager tool, which is built into the Hepsia hosting Control Panel, via which you’ll manage your web hosting account. You will see all the email addresses that you have set up enumerated in alphabetical order and to the right of each one of them there will be a small "Catch-all" icon, which will instantly inform you whether a specific mailbox receives all the emails pertaining to a certain domain or not. With a single click on the icon you can activate or deactivate this option at any moment. If there’s activated email forwarding or in case some other mailbox has already been set up as a catch-all one for a certain domain, you’ll receive a warning text message from our system. The latter will not disable/replace anything automatically and without your permission.

Catch-all Emails in Semi-dedicated Servers

A catch-all email address can be set up with several clicks of the mouse if you’ve got a semi-dedicated plan with us. The hosting account will be managed through our custom-created Hepsia hosting Control Panel and you will be able to set up mailboxes with any domain name hosted there. To enable the catch-all option for a mailbox, you will have to click on the logo with the same name, which will be to the right of each mailbox. Deactivating this feature can be accomplished in the very same way and will not take more than a click either. If a catch-all mailbox has already been enabled for a particular 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 enabled, as our system will never edit or disable any feature automatically.
