A catch-all e-mailbox is one that collects all the messages sent to invalid email addresses. For instance, if your address is info@domain.com, but someone miswrites it and sends a message to inof@domain.com, it will still be received in the catch-all mailbox that you have set up. Only one mailbox per domain can have this feature activated and in this way you will never miss messages because the other side has an out-of-date email address or has made a typo. The negative aspect of configuring a catch-all mailbox is that you may start receiving plenty of unsolicited bulk email messages, but this problem can be rectified by using an anti-spam protection solution. It’s also crucial to remember that a mailbox with an activated catch-all feature cannot redirect incoming messages to a 3rd-party mailbox.

Catch-all Emails in Shared Web Hosting

If you host a domain on our cloud platform and you’ve got a shared web hosting account, you will be able to enable the catch-all feature for any e-mailbox that you set up under the domain. The Email Manager section of the Hepsia hosting Control Panel offers quite a few features, but it’s incredibly simple to work with, so creating a catch-all mailbox takes just one single click. All the email addresses that you have created will be shown in this section in alphabetical order and you’ll simply need to click on the "Catch-all" button associated with the specific email address. Our system will warn you if there’s already another catch-all mailbox activated 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 select a different mailbox. Deactivating the catch-all feature is just as simple and takes yet another mouse click on the exact same button.

Catch-all Emails in Semi-dedicated Servers

You will be able to set up a catch-all address with no more than one click if you’ve got a Linux semi-dedicated server with us and your emails are handled by our cloud web hosting platform. All the mailboxes that you set up with any domain name hosted in the account will be enumerated in the Email Manager section of your Hepsia Control Panel. Each of them will have a tiny "Catch-all" icon on its right-hand side, so all it will take to activate this option will be to click on that icon. In the exact same way you will be able to disable the feature, in case you don’t need it anymore. Our system will let you know in case you’re trying to activate a second catch-all email address for a specific domain name or if there is active email forwarding, but it’ll never modify or disable anything automatically or without your permission.
