A catch-all e-mailbox is one that collects all the messages sent to nonexistent email addresses. For instance, if your 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 set up. Just one single mailbox per domain can have this feature enabled and in this way you will never miss messages because the other party has an obsolete email address or has made a typographical error. The negative aspect of configuring a catch-all mailbox is that you may start receiving a lot of unsolicited bulk emails, but this problem can be fixed using an anti-spam protection solution. It’s also vital to remember that a mailbox with an enabled catch-all feature cannot forward incoming email messages to a third-party address.

Catch-all Emails in Shared Hosting

If you host a domain on our cloud platform and you have a shared hosting account, you’ll be able to activate the catch-all functionality for any email mailbox that you create under the domain name. The Email Manager section of the Hepsia hosting Control Panel comes with quite a lot of features, but it’s incredibly intuitive, so configuring a catch-all mailbox takes just one single click. All the email addresses that you have will be shown in this section alphabetically and you will just need to click on the "Catch-all" button pertaining to the respective email address. Our system will inform you if there is already another catch-all mailbox enabled for that domain or if the one that you would like to be a catch-all mailbox has email forwarding activated, so you can either deactivate the latter feature or pick a different mailbox. Deactivating the catch-all feature is just as simple and requires yet another mouse click on the exact same button.

Catch-all Emails in Semi-dedicated Hosting

A catch-all address can be created with several mouse clicks if you’ve got a Linux semi-dedicated service with us. The hosting account will be managed via our custom-developed Hepsia Control Panel and you will be able to set up email addresses under any domain name hosted here. To activate the catch-all option for a specific mailbox, you will need to click the logo with the exact same name, which will be next to each mailbox. Disabling this functionality can be achieved in the exact same manner and will not require more than one click either. In case the catch-all feature has already been enabled for a given domain, you will get a warning alert. The same is valid if the mailbox that you’d like to be a catch-all one has email forwarding activated, as our system will never change or disable any feature automatically.
