A catch-all email mailbox is one that gathers all the email messages sent to non-existent addresses. For example, if your email address is info@domain.com, but someone 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 single mailbox per domain can have this feature activated and thus you’ll never miss emails because the other party has an outdated address or has made a typo. The drawback of using a catch-all mailbox is that you may begin receiving a lot of junk email messages, but this issue can be fixed by using an anti-spam protection solution. It is also crucial to remember that a mailbox with an activated catch-all feature cannot forward inbound emails to a third-party address.

Catch-all Emails in Shared Hosting

Setting up a catch-all mailbox will be surprisingly easy in case you’ve got a Linux shared hosting with our company. You can activate the feature through our advanced, yet simple-to-work-with Email Manager, which is an integral part of the Hepsia Control Panel, via which you will manage your web hosting account. You’ll see all the mailboxes that you have set up enumerated in alphabetical order and next to each of them there will be a tiny "Catch-all" icon, which will quickly show you whether a certain mailbox receives all the email messages for a certain domain name or not. With a single mouse click on the icon you can activate or deactivate this option whenever you wish. If there’s enabled email forwarding or if another mailbox has already been configured as a catch-all one for a given domain name, you’ll get a warning from our system. The latter won’t disable/replace anything automatically and without your approval.

Catch-all Emails in Semi-dedicated Hosting

A catch-all address can be configured with a couple of clicks of the mouse if you have a Linux semi-dedicated hosting with our company. The semi-dedicated account will be managed via our custom-created Hepsia hosting Control Panel and you will be able to set up mailboxes under any domain registered there. To enable the catch-all option for a specific mailbox, you’ll need to click on the button with the same name, which will be next to each email address. Deactivating this feature can be done in the exact same way and will not require more than one click either. If the catch-all feature has already been enabled for a particular domain name, you will receive a warning notification. The same goes if the mailbox that you wish to be a catch-all one has email forwarding activated, as our system will never deactivate or alter any feature automatically.
