A catch-all mailbox is one that captures all the messages sent to invalid email addresses. For example, if your 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 configured. Only one mailbox per domain can have this feature activated and thus you’ll never miss emails because the other party has an obsolete email address or has made a spelling error. The downside of configuring a catch-all mailbox is that you may begin receiving plenty of spam email messages, but this problem can be resolved by using anti-spam protection software. It is also crucial to keep in mind that a mailbox with an enabled catch-all feature cannot forward incoming emails to a 3rd-party email address.

Catch-all Emails in Hosting

Configuring a catch-all email mailbox will be rather easy in case you have a Linux hosting service with our company. You can enable this option through our advanced, yet intuitive Email Manager tool, which is built into the Hepsia Control Panel, via which you’ll administer the shared web hosting account itself. You’ll find all the mailboxes that you’ve set up displayed in alphabetical order and next to each one there will be a small "Catch-all" icon, which will quickly let you know if a certain mailbox stores all the emails for a certain domain or not. With one mouse click on the icon you can activate or deactivate the feature whenever you want. If there’s active email forwarding or in case some other mailbox has already been set up as a catch-all one for a particular domain name, you will receive an alert from our system. The latter will not replace/deactivate anything automatically or without your approval.

Catch-all Emails in Semi-dedicated Hosting

The catch-all option can be enabled without any effort in case you have a semi-dedicated server plan with our company. All the email addresses that you’ve created using the domain names hosted in your semi-dedicated server account will be listed in the Email Manager section of your Hepsia hosting Control Panel and you will find a mini logo handily situated right next to each of them. With only a mouse click, you can enable or disable the catch-all option for any mailbox of your preference as long as there isn't another mailbox under the same domain with the option already enabled and there isn't active email forwarding. Instead, you can right-click on a mailbox and enable this option through the menu that will appear. If any of the preconditions for setting up a catch-all mailbox is not satisfied, our system will notify you, but will not deactivate or replace anything automatically.
