A catch-all e-mailbox is one that captures all the email messages sent to nonexistent email addresses. For instance, if your email address is info@domain.com, but somebody mistypes it and sends a message to inof@domain.com, it will still be received in the catch-all mailbox that you have created. Only one single mailbox per domain name can have this feature activated and thus you’ll never miss messages because the other side has an out-of-date email address or has made a mistake. The disadvantage of configuring a catch-all mailbox is that you may start receiving a lot of junk messages, but this issue can be rectified by using an anti-spam protection solution. It is also important to bear in mind that a mailbox with an active catch-all feature cannot redirect incoming email messages to a third-party email address.

Catch-all Emails in Cloud Web Hosting

If you host a domain name on our cloud web hosting platform and you’ve got a cloud web hosting account, you’ll be able to activate the catch-all functionality for any mailbox that you create under the domain name. The Email Manager section of the Hepsia hosting Control Panel includes quite a few functions, but it’s astonishingly user-friendly, so configuring a catch-all mailbox takes just a single mouse click. All the email addresses that you have set up will be listed in this section in alphabetical order and you’ll just have to click on the "Catch-all" button pertaining to the particular email address. Our system will warn you if there’s already another catch-all mailbox activated for that domain name or if the one that you would like to be a catch-all mailbox has email forwarding enabled, so you can either turn off the latter feature or pick another mailbox. Disabling the catch-all feature is just as simple and requires yet another click on the very same button.

Catch-all Emails in Semi-dedicated Hosting

A catch-all address can be configured with a few mouse clicks if you’ve got a Linux semi-dedicated package with us. The semi-dedicated hosting account will be administered via our custom-created Hepsia hosting Control Panel and you’ll be able to create email addresses under any domain name registered here. To enable the catch-all option for a given mailbox, you will need to click the symbol with the exact same name, which will be on the right-hand side of each mailbox. Disabling this functionality can be achieved in the exact same fashion and will not take more than one click either. In case the catch-all feature has already been activated for a specific domain, you’ll receive a notification. The same goes if the mailbox that you’d like to be a catch-all one has email forwarding activated, as our system will never replace or disable anything automatically.
