A catch-all email mailbox is one that captures all the messages sent to invalid addresses. For instance, if your address is info@domain.com, but someone mistypes it and sends an email to inof@domain.com, it will still be received in the catch-all mailbox that you have set up. Just one single mailbox per domain name can have this feature enabled and in this way you will never miss messages because the other side has an outdated email address or has made a mistake. The negative aspect of using a catch-all mailbox is that you may begin receiving lots of junk emails, but this issue can be fixed using anti-spam filtering software. It is also essential to know that a mailbox with an activated catch-all functionality cannot redirect incoming email messages to a 3rd-party mailbox.

Catch-all Emails in Cloud Web Hosting

Setting up a catch-all email mailbox will be astonishingly easy if you’ve got a cloud web hosting plan with our company. You can enable this feature through our powerful, yet simple-to-use Email Manager, which is an essential part of the Hepsia Control Panel, via which you’ll administer your web hosting account. You will find all the mailboxes that you’ve created enumerated in alphabetical order and on the right-hand side of each one of them there will be a tiny "Catch-all" icon, which will instantly reveal to you whether a certain mailbox gets all the email messages pertaining to a given domain name or not. With one single mouse click on the icon you can enable or disable this option whenever you want. If there’s enabled email forwarding or in case some other mailbox has already been set up as a catch-all one for a given domain, you’ll get a warning from our system. The latter won’t replace/deactivate anything automatically or without your consent.

Catch-all Emails in Semi-dedicated Servers

The in-house created Hepsia Control Panel that comes with each semi-dedicated server package that we’re offering will permit you to configure a catch-all email mailbox without any difficulties even if you do not have much email/web hosting experience. All you have to do to achieve that is click on the catch-all icon, which will be to the right of each email address that you have created with your domains in the hosting Control Panel’s Email Manager section. As you can have just one single mailbox with this feature per domain, our system will notify you if you’ve already set up a different catch-all mailbox or if the one that you want to use has email forwarding activated. If you reach the decision that you don’t want this feature any longer, you can deactivate it by clicking once again on the same icon. The Email Manager section will also allow you to view your catch-all mailboxes at a glance.
