A catch-all mailbox is one that gathers all the messages sent to inactive email addresses. For instance, if your address is info@domain.com, but someone misspells it and sends an email to inof@domain.com, it will still be received in the catch-all mailbox that you have configured. Only one single mailbox per domain name can have this feature enabled and in this way you’ll never miss emails because the other side has an out-of-date email address or has made a typographical error. The drawback of setting up a catch-all mailbox is that you may start receiving lots of unsolicited emails, but this issue can be rectified by using an anti-spam filtering solution. It is also essential to know that a mailbox with an activated catch-all functionality cannot redirect incoming messages to a third-party address.

Catch-all Emails in Shared Hosting

In case you host a domain on our cloud hosting platform and you have a shared hosting account, you’ll be able to activate the catch-all feature for any mailbox that you create under the domain name. The Hepsia hosting Control Panel’s Email Manager section comes with quite a few features, but it is very intuitive, so creating a catch-all mailbox takes just one single mouse click. All the email addresses that you’ve got will be enumerated in this section alphabetically and you will only have to click on the "Catch-all" button associated with the particular email address. Our system will notify you if there is already another catch-all mailbox activated for that domain or if the one that you’d like to be a catch-all mailbox has email forwarding enabled, so you can either disable the latter feature or pick some other mailbox. Disabling the catch-all feature is just as easy and takes one more mouse click on the very same button.

Catch-all Emails in Semi-dedicated Hosting

The custom Hepsia hosting Control Panel that comes with every semi-dedicated server package that we are offering will permit you to configure a catch-all e-mailbox without any difficulty even if you don’t have much email/web hosting experience. All you need to do to accomplish that is click on the catch-all icon, which will be on the right-hand side of each email address that you’ve set up using your domains in the hosting Control Panel’s Email Manager section. Since you can have just one single mailbox with this feature per domain, our system will inform you if you have already set up another catch-all mailbox or if the one that you want to use has email forwarding activated. In case you reach the decision that you do not want this feature anymore, you can deactivate it by clicking again on the very same icon. The Email Manager will also allow you to see your catch-all mailboxes at a glance.
