A catch-all email mailbox is one that collects all the messages sent to invalid addresses. For example, if your 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per domain name can have this feature enabled and thus you will never miss messages because the other party has an outdated email address or has made a spelling mistake. The negative aspect of creating a catch-all mailbox is that you may start receiving plenty of junk email messages, but this issue can be rectified using an anti-spam protection solution. It’s also vital to keep in mind that a mailbox with an active catch-all functionality cannot forward inbound emails to a third-party address.

Catch-all Emails in Hosting

Setting up a catch-all mailbox will be incredibly easy if you have a Linux hosting package with us. You can enable the feature through our advanced, albeit easy-to-work-with Email Manager, which is an integral part of the Hepsia Control Panel, via which you will manage the account itself. You’ll see all the email addresses that you’ve set up enumerated in alphabetical order and on the right-hand side of each of them there will be a mini "Catch-all" icon, which will quickly inform you if a particular mailbox stores all the email messages for a certain domain or not. With one single click on the icon you can enable or disable this feature whenever you wish. If there’s active email forwarding or in case some other mailbox has already been configured as a catch-all one for a particular domain, you will receive a warning from our system. The latter won’t deactivate/replace anything automatically and without your consent.

Catch-all Emails in Semi-dedicated Hosting

The catch-all feature can be enabled effortlessly in case you have a semi-dedicated server account with our company. All the email addresses that you have created using the domain names hosted in the semi-dedicated server account will be enumerated in the Email Manager section of your Hepsia Control Panel and you’ll see a tiny sign conveniently situated right next to each one of them. With just a click of the mouse, you can enable or disable the catch-all option for any mailbox of your choice as long as there isn't another mailbox under the same domain name with the option already enabled and there isn't enabled email forwarding. Instead, you can right-click on a mailbox and enable the feature using the context menu that will surface. In case any of the prerequisites for configuring a catch-all mailbox is not fulfilled, our system will inform you, but will not disable or replace anything automatically.
