A catch-all e-mailbox is one that gathers all the email messages sent to inactive email addresses. For example, if your address is info@domain.com, but somebody misspells it and sends an email to inof@domain.com, it will still be received in the catch-all mailbox that you have set up. Just one mailbox per domain can have this feature activated and thus you’ll never miss messages because the other party has an obsolete email address or has made a spelling error. The downside of setting up a catch-all mailbox is that you may begin receiving lots of spam email messages, but this issue can be rectified by using an anti-spam protection solution. It’s also important to know that a mailbox with an enabled catch-all functionality cannot forward incoming emails to a 3rd-party email address.

Catch-all Emails in Shared Hosting

If you host a domain name on our cloud platform and you’ve got a shared hosting account, you’ll be able to activate the catch-all feature for any mailbox that you set up under the domain. The Email Manager section of the Hepsia hosting Control Panel comes with quite a few features, but it is amazingly intuitive, so configuring a catch-all mailbox requires only one mouse click. All the email addresses that you’ve got will be listed in this section alphabetically and you’ll only need to click on the "Catch-all" button for the specific address. Our system will notify you if there’s already another catch-all mailbox enabled 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 pick a different mailbox. Disabling the catch-all feature is just as easy and takes one more mouse click on the exact same button.

Catch-all Emails in Semi-dedicated Hosting

You will be able to create a catch-all address with no more than one click in case you’ve got a Linux semi-dedicated hosting with us and your email messages are handled by our cloud platform. All the addresses that you create with any domain name hosted in the semi-dedicated account will be enumerated in the Hepsia hosting Control Panel’s Email Manager section. Each of them will have a mini "Catch-all" icon next to it, so all it will take to enable the feature will be to click that icon. In the same manner you’ll be able to turn off the feature, in case you don’t need it anymore. Our system will inform you if you’re trying to activate a 2nd catch-all address for a certain domain name or if there’s enabled email forwarding, but it’ll never modify or disable any feature automatically or without your approval.
