A catch-all mailbox is one that gathers all the messages sent to invalid email addresses. For instance, if your address is info@domain.com, but someone miswrites it and sends an email message to inof@domain.com, it will still be received in the catch-all mailbox that you have configured. Only one mailbox per domain can have this feature enabled and in this way you will never miss emails because the other side has an out-of-date address or has made a spelling error. The disadvantage of having a catch-all mailbox is that you may start receiving plenty of spam, but this issue can be rectified by using an anti-spam protection solution. It is also essential to bear in mind that a mailbox with an enabled catch-all feature cannot forward inbound emails to a third-party mailbox.

Catch-all Emails in Cloud Web Hosting

Creating a catch-all e-mailbox will be really easy if you’ve got a Linux cloud web hosting with our company. You can enable the feature through our powerful, albeit intuitive Email Manager, which is an indivisible part of the Hepsia Control Panel, via which you’ll manage the shared web hosting account itself. You’ll see all the mailboxes that you’ve created enumerated in alphabetical order and on the right side of each one there will be a mini "Catch-all" icon, which will instantaneously tell you whether a certain mailbox receives all the messages for a given domain name or not. With one single mouse click on the icon you can activate or deactivate this option whenever you like. If there’s enabled email forwarding or if some other mailbox has already been configured as a catch-all one for a particular domain name, you will receive a warning notification from our system. The latter won’t replace/deactivate anything automatically or without your consent.

Catch-all Emails in Semi-dedicated Hosting

You will be able to set up a catch-all email address with no more than a click in case you’ve got a Linux semi-dedicated hosting with us and your emails are handled by our cloud web hosting platform. All the email addresses that you set up with any domain name hosted in the semi-dedicated hosting account will be listed in the Hepsia Control Panel’s Email Manager section. Each of them will have a tiny "Catch-all" icon next to it, so all it will take to activate the feature will be to click that icon. In the same fashion you’ll be able to turn off the feature, in case you no longer need it. Our system will let you know in case you are trying to activate a 2nd catch-all email address for a specific domain or in case there’s active email forwarding, but it will never modify or disable anything automatically or without your permission.
