A catch-all e-mailbox is one that captures all the emails sent to non-existent addresses. For example, if your address is info@domain.com, but someone miswrites 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 single mailbox per domain name can have this feature activated and thus you will never miss messages because the other side has an outdated email address or has made a typo. The disadvantage of using a catch-all mailbox is that you may begin receiving lots of junk email messages, but this issue can be fixed using an anti-spam filtering solution. It is also vital to know that a mailbox with an active catch-all feature cannot redirect incoming email messages to a 3rd-party email address.

Catch-all Emails in Web Hosting

Configuring a catch-all e-mailbox will be really easy if you’ve got a web hosting plan with our company. You can enable this feature through our powerful, yet simple-to-use Email Manager, which is an indivisible part of the Hepsia hosting Control Panel, via which you’ll administer your shared hosting account. You will find all the mailboxes that you’ve created shown in alphabetical order and next to each of them there will be a tiny "Catch-all" icon, which will instantly let you know if a particular mailbox receives all the messages associated with a given domain or not. With one click on the icon you can activate or deactivate the feature whenever you wish. In case there’s enabled email forwarding or in case a different mailbox has already been configured as a catch-all one for a particular domain name, you will get a warning notice from our system. The latter will not replace/disable anything automatically or without your permission.

Catch-all Emails in Semi-dedicated Servers

The custom Hepsia hosting Control Panel that comes with each and every semi-dedicated server package that we offer will permit you to create a catch-all mailbox without any efforts even if you don’t have much email/web hosting experience. All it takes to do that is to click on the catch-all icon, which will be on the right-hand side of each mailbox that you have set up using your domain names in the Control Panel’s Email Manager section. Since you can have only one mailbox with this feature per domain name, our system will notify you if you’ve already set up a different catch-all mailbox or if the one that you would like to use has email forwarding enabled. In case you decide that you don’t need this feature anymore, you can turn it off by clicking once again on the same icon. The Email Manager will also allow you to see your catch-all mailboxes at a glance.
