A catch-all e-mailbox is one that gathers all the email messages sent to invalid email addresses. For instance, if your email 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 configured. Only one single mailbox per domain can have this feature activated and thus you’ll never miss emails because the other party has an obsolete address or has made a typo. The disadvantage of using a catch-all mailbox is that you may begin receiving a lot of spam, but this problem can be resolved by using an anti-spam filtering solution. It is also vital to keep in mind that a mailbox with an activated catch-all functionality cannot forward inbound emails to a 3rd-party mailbox.

Catch-all Emails in Website Hosting

If you host a domain on our cloud hosting platform and you have a website hosting account, you’ll be able to activate the catch-all feature for any e-mailbox that you set up under the domain. The Hepsia Control Panel’s Email Manager section comes with quite a lot of features, but it is really simple to work with, so configuring a catch-all mailbox requires just one mouse click. All the email addresses that you’ve set up will be displayed in this section alphabetically and you’ll simply have to click on the "Catch-all" button for the given email address. Our system will alert you if there is already another catch-all mailbox activated for that domain name or if the one that you’d like to be a catch-all mailbox has email forwarding activated, so you can either disable the latter feature or pick another mailbox. Disabling the catch-all option is just as simple and requires yet another click on the very same button.

Catch-all Emails in Semi-dedicated Hosting

A catch-all email address can be configured with several clicks of the mouse if you have a Linux semi-dedicated hosting with our company. The hosting account will be administered through our custom-developed Hepsia hosting Control Panel and you will be able to create email addresses with any domain registered here. To activate the catch-all feature for a particular mailbox, you’ll need to click the sign with the exact same name, which will be on the right side of each mailbox. Deactivating this option can be achieved in the same way and will not take more than a click either. If the catch-all feature has already been enabled for a given domain, you will get a warning. The same is valid if the mailbox that you’d like to be a catch-all one has email forwarding activated, as our system will never disable or change any feature automatically.
