A catch-all mailbox is one that collects all the email messages sent to non-existent addresses. For example, if your email address is info@domain.com, but somebody mistypes 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 single mailbox per domain can have this feature activated and thus you will never miss emails because the other side has an outdated email address or has made a typographical error. The disadvantage of having a catch-all mailbox is that you may start receiving plenty of unsolicited email messages, but this problem can be solved using anti-spam protection software. It’s also vital to know that a mailbox with an enabled catch-all functionality cannot redirect inbound emails to a third-party email address.

Catch-all Emails in Shared Hosting

If you host a domain on our cloud web hosting platform and you’ve got a shared hosting account, you will be able to enable the catch-all functionality for any e-mailbox that you set up under the domain name. The Hepsia hosting Control Panel’s Email Manager section offers quite a lot of features, but it is amazingly intuitive, so creating a catch-all mailbox requires only a click of the mouse. All the email addresses that you’ve created will be shown in this section alphabetically and you’ll simply have to click on the "Catch-all" button pertaining to the concrete email address. Our system will warn you if there’s already another catch-all mailbox activated for that domain name or if the one that you would like to be a catch-all mailbox has email forwarding enabled, so you can either turn off the latter feature or select some other mailbox. Deactivating the catch-all option is just as simple and requires one more mouse click on the same button.

Catch-all Emails in Semi-dedicated Hosting

You’ll be able to create a catch-all email address with no more than a click if you have a Linux semi-dedicated hosting with us and your emails are handled by our cloud hosting platform. All the addresses that you set up using any domain name hosted in the semi-dedicated account will be shown in the Hepsia hosting Control Panel’s Email Manager section. Each of them will have a mini "Catch-all" icon on its right-hand side, so all it will take to activate this feature will be to click on that icon. In the same way you’ll be able to deactivate the feature, if you don’t need it anymore. Our system will warn you if you are attempting to enable a 2nd catch-all mailbox for a certain domain name or in case there is activated email forwarding, but it’ll never alter or deactivate anything automatically or without your approval.
