A catch-all e-mailbox is one that collects all the email messages sent to non-existent email addresses. For example, if your 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 created. Just one single mailbox per domain name can have this feature enabled and in this way you’ll never miss emails because the other side has an obsolete address or has made a typographical error. The downside of setting up a catch-all mailbox is that you may begin receiving a lot of spam emails, but this problem can be solved using anti-spam filtering software. It is also crucial to know that a mailbox with an enabled catch-all functionality cannot redirect inbound emails to a 3rd-party mailbox.

Catch-all Emails in Cloud Hosting

Creating a catch-all mailbox will be really easy if you’ve got a Linux cloud hosting with our company. You can enable the feature through our advanced, albeit user-friendly Email Manager, which is part of the Hepsia Control Panel, via which you’ll administer your shared hosting account. You will find all the mailboxes that you’ve set up displayed in alphabetical order and on the right-hand side of each one of them there will be a small-size "Catch-all" icon, which will instantly show you whether a specific mailbox receives all the messages for a given domain name or not. With one single mouse click on the icon you can enable or disable the feature whenever you like. If there’s active email forwarding or if another mailbox has already been configured as a catch-all one for a particular domain name, you’ll get a warning message from our system. The latter will not deactivate/replace anything automatically or without your approval.

Catch-all Emails in Semi-dedicated Hosting

You’ll be able to create a catch-all email address with no more than a click if you have a semi-dedicated package with our company and your emails are handled by our cloud web hosting platform. All the mailboxes that you set up with any domain hosted in your semi-dedicated account will be enumerated in the Hepsia Control Panel’s Email Manager section. Each of them will have a tiny "Catch-all" icon on its right-hand side, so all it will take to activate this option will be to click that icon. In the very same manner you’ll be able to turn off the feature, in case you no longer need it. Our system will warn you in case you’re attempting to activate a 2nd catch-all email address for a certain domain or in case there’s active email forwarding, but it’ll never alter or deactivate any feature automatically or without your approval.
