A catch-all email mailbox is one that captures all the messages sent to non-existent 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 configured. Just one single mailbox per domain can have this feature enabled and in this way you’ll never miss emails because the other party has an outdated address or has made a spelling mistake. The negative aspect of using a catch-all mailbox is that you may start receiving plenty of junk emails, but this problem can be solved using anti-spam protection software. It’s also vital to remember that a mailbox with an enabled catch-all feature cannot redirect incoming emails to a third-party mailbox.

Catch-all Emails in Cloud Website Hosting

Setting up a catch-all mailbox will be pretty easy in case you’ve got a Linux cloud website hosting service with our company. You can activate this feature through our advanced, yet easy-to-use Email Manager tool, which is part of the Hepsia hosting Control Panel, via which you’ll manage the hosting account itself. You will find all the email addresses that you’ve set up shown in alphabetical order and to the right of each one there will be a small-size "Catch-all" icon, which will instantaneously show you if a specific mailbox receives all the email messages pertaining to a certain domain or not. With one click on the icon you can enable or disable the feature whenever you like. In case there is enabled email forwarding or in case a different mailbox has already been configured as a catch-all one for a given domain, you will receive an alert from our system. The latter won’t deactivate/replace anything automatically or without your permission.

Catch-all Emails in Semi-dedicated Hosting

The catch-all functionality can be activated with ease if you’ve got a semi-dedicated server plan with us. All the email addresses that you’ve created with the domain names hosted in the semi-dedicated server account will be listed in the Hepsia Control Panel’s Email Manager section and you’ll notice a mini logo handily located directly next to each one of them. With just a single mouse click, you can activate or deactivate the catch-all option for any mailbox of your preference provided that there isn't another mailbox under that same domain with this option already activated and there isn't active email forwarding. Instead, you can right-click on a mailbox and activate this feature using the contextual menu that will come into view. If any of the preconditions for creating a catch-all mailbox is not satisfied, our system will let you know, but will not deactivate or replace anything automatically.
