A catch-all email mailbox is one that gathers all the email messages sent to nonexistent 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 created. Only one single mailbox per domain name can have this feature activated and thus you will never miss emails because the other side has an outdated address or has made a mistake. The negative aspect of using a catch-all mailbox is that you may start receiving a lot of unsolicited messages, but this problem can be rectified using anti-spam filtering software. It’s also vital to bear in mind that a mailbox with an activated catch-all functionality cannot forward inbound email messages to a third-party mailbox.

Catch-all Emails in Website Hosting

Configuring a catch-all email mailbox will be exceptionally easy if you’ve got a website hosting with us. You can enable the feature through our powerful, yet simple-to-work-with Email Manager, which is built into the Hepsia Control Panel, via which you will administer the shared web hosting account itself. You’ll find all the email addresses that you’ve set up shown alphabetically and to the right of each one of them there will be a mini "Catch-all" icon, which will quickly notify you if a certain mailbox stores all the emails pertaining to a given domain or not. With one click on the icon you can enable or disable this feature at any moment. In case there is enabled email forwarding or in case another mailbox has already been set up as a catch-all one for a specific domain name, you’ll receive a warning from our system. The latter won’t replace/deactivate anything automatically and without your permission.

Catch-all Emails in Semi-dedicated Hosting

A catch-all address can be created with several mouse clicks in case you’ve got a Linux semi-dedicated package with our company. The hosting account will be administered through our custom-developed Hepsia Control Panel and you will be able to set up email addresses with any domain name registered here. To enable the catch-all functionality for a particular mailbox, you’ll have to click on the logo with the same name, which will be on the right side of each email address. Deactivating the feature can be achieved in the same fashion and will not require more than one click either. In case the catch-all feature has already been enabled for a specific domain, you’ll get a warning message. The same is valid if the mailbox that you would like to be a catch-all one has email forwarding activated, as our system will never deactivate or replace anything automatically.
