A catch-all mailbox is one that gathers all the emails sent to invalid addresses. For example, if your address is info@domain.com, but somebody miswrites it and sends an email to inof@domain.com, it will still be received in the catch-all mailbox that you have set up. Just one mailbox per domain name can have this feature activated and in this way you will never miss emails because the other party has an out-of-date address or has made a spelling error. The downside of configuring a catch-all mailbox is that you may start receiving plenty of spam emails, but this issue can be fixed using anti-spam protection software. It’s also important to keep in mind that a mailbox with an active catch-all functionality cannot forward inbound emails to a third-party mailbox.

Catch-all Emails in Web Hosting

In case you host a domain on our cloud hosting platform and you have a web hosting account, you’ll be able to activate the catch-all functionality for any e-mailbox that you create under the domain name. The Email Manager section of the Hepsia hosting Control Panel includes quite a few features, but it’s amazingly intuitive, so setting up a catch-all mailbox requires just a mouse click. All the email addresses that you have will be displayed in this section in alphabetical order and you’ll simply have to click on the "Catch-all" button associated with 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 enabled, so you can either disable the latter feature or choose a different mailbox. Disabling the catch-all option is just as easy and takes one more click on the same button.

Catch-all Emails in Semi-dedicated Hosting

A catch-all address can be set up with a couple of clicks of the mouse if you’ve got a Linux semi-dedicated hosting package with us. The semi-dedicated account will be administered through our custom-created Hepsia hosting Control Panel and you’ll be able to create mailboxes using any domain name registered there. To enable the catch-all option for a given mailbox, you will have to click the sign with the same name, which will be on the right-hand side of each mailbox. Deactivating the feature can be done in the very same fashion and will not take more than one click either. In case a catch-all mailbox has already been enabled for a given domain name, you’ll receive a warning note. 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 disable or modify anything automatically.
