A catch-all mailbox is one that collects all the email messages sent to nonexistent email addresses. For example, if your email address is info@domain.com, but somebody misspells it and sends an email message to inof@domain.com, it will still be received in the catch-all mailbox that you have configured. Only one mailbox per domain name can have this feature enabled and in this way you’ll never miss messages because the other side has an out-of-date email address or has made a spelling mistake. The disadvantage of creating a catch-all mailbox is that you may start receiving a lot of spam messages, but this problem can be fixed using anti-spam filtering software. It’s also essential to keep in mind that a mailbox with an activated catch-all functionality cannot redirect inbound emails to a third-party mailbox.

Catch-all Emails in Cloud Website Hosting

If you have a cloud website hosting package with our company and you want to activate the catch-all feature for a particular email mailbox that you’ve got in the account, it’ll take literally only a single click of the mouse in the Email Manager section of your Hepsia hosting Control Panel to accomplish that. A catch-all button is available next to each email address that you have set up under any domain name registered in your account. You can pick one single email address per domain by clicking the corresponding button. This will activate the feature straight away, so all messages sent to mistyped addresses will be received there. Clicking on the button once more will deactivate the catch-all feature. If you’ve got activated email forwarding, our system will display a warning note and you will not be able to enable the catch-all feature until you deactivate the forwarding or you can simply select a different mailbox to be the catch-all one.

Catch-all Emails in Semi-dedicated Hosting

A catch-all address can be created with several mouse clicks in case you have a Linux semi-dedicated hosting with our company. The semi-dedicated hosting account will be managed via our custom-developed Hepsia hosting Control Panel and you will be able to set up email addresses under any domain name registered there. To activate the catch-all functionality for a specific mailbox, you’ll have to click the symbol with the exact same name, which will be to the right of each mailbox. Deactivating this option can be achieved in the exact same fashion and will not take more than a click either. If the catch-all feature has already been enabled for a specific domain name, you’ll get a warning note. 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 deactivate or modify any feature automatically.
