A catch-all email mailbox is one that collects all the emails sent to invalid addresses. For instance, if your email address is info@domain.com, but somebody misspells it and sends a message to inof@domain.com, it will still be received in the catch-all mailbox that you have set up. Only one mailbox per domain name can have this feature enabled and thus you’ll never miss emails because the other party has an outdated address or has made a typographical error. The downside of having a catch-all mailbox is that you may begin receiving lots of junk messages, but this problem can be fixed by using an anti-spam protection solution. It is also vital to remember that a mailbox with an active catch-all feature cannot redirect incoming email messages to a 3rd-party email address.

Catch-all Emails in Web Hosting

Creating a catch-all e-mailbox will be stunningly easy in case you’ve got a Linux web hosting with us. You can enable this feature through our advanced, albeit easy-to-use Email Manager tool, which is included in the Hepsia Control Panel, via which you’ll administer your shared web hosting account. You will find all the mailboxes that you’ve set up enumerated alphabetically and to the right of each one there will be a small-size "Catch-all" icon, which will quickly notify you whether a specific mailbox stores all the messages associated with a certain domain name or not. With one mouse click on the icon you can enable or disable this feature at any time. In case there’s activated email forwarding or if another mailbox has already been set up as a catch-all one for a particular domain, you will get an alert from our system. The latter will not disable/replace anything automatically and without your permission.

Catch-all Emails in Semi-dedicated Servers

You will be able to set up a catch-all address with no more than one click in case you’ve got a Linux semi-dedicated hosting plan with us and your emails are handled by our cloud web hosting platform. All the addresses that you set up with any domain hosted in the account will be listed in the Hepsia hosting Control Panel’s Email Manager section. Each of them will have a small "Catch-all" icon next to it, so all it will take to activate the feature will be to click on that icon. In the same way you’ll be able to remove the feature, in case you do not need it any longer. Our system will inform you if you are trying to activate a 2nd catch-all mailbox for a specific domain or in case there’s active email forwarding, but it will never change or disable any feature automatically or without your approval.
