A catch-all mailbox is one that captures all the emails sent to invalid email addresses. For instance, if your address is info@domain.com, but somebody mistypes it and sends an email 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mailbox per domain can have this feature enabled and thus you will never miss messages because the other party has an outdated email address or has made a mistake. The disadvantage of setting up a catch-all mailbox is that you may begin receiving plenty of unsolicited emails, but this issue can be resolved using anti-spam protection software. It’s also crucial to know that a mailbox with an activated catch-all feature cannot forward incoming messages to a 3rd-party mailbox.

Catch-all Emails in Shared Hosting

Setting up a catch-all e-mailbox will be amazingly easy in case you’ve got a Linux shared hosting with us. You can enable this feature through our advanced, yet easy-to-work-with Email Manager, which is an indivisible part of the Hepsia hosting Control Panel, via which you will administer the web hosting account itself. You will find all the mailboxes that you’ve set up displayed alphabetically and to the right of each of them there will be a tiny "Catch-all" icon, which will instantly show you if a certain mailbox stores all the email messages for a given domain name or not. With a single click on the icon you can enable or disable this option whenever you want. In case there is active email forwarding or if another mailbox has already been set up as a catch-all one for a given domain, you will get a warning note from our system. The latter will not disable/replace anything automatically and without your consent.

Catch-all Emails in Semi-dedicated Hosting

You’ll be able to configure a catch-all address with no more than a click if you’ve got a semi-dedicated hosting with our company and your emails are handled by our cloud web hosting platform. All the mailboxes that you create with any domain hosted in the account will be displayed in the Email Manager section of your Hepsia hosting Control Panel. Each of them will have a mini "Catch-all" icon on its right-hand side, so all it will take to enable this feature will be to click that icon. In the exact same fashion you will be able to remove the feature, in case you do not need it any longer. Our system will inform you in case you’re trying to activate a 2nd catch-all address for a certain domain or in case there’s active email forwarding, but it’ll never change or disable anything automatically and without your consent.
