A catch-all e-mailbox is one that gathers all the messages sent to inactive addresses. For instance, if your email address is info@domain.com, but somebody misspells it and sends a 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domain name can have this feature activated and in this way you will never miss messages because the other side has an out-of-date email address or has made a mistake. The negative aspect of creating a catch-all mailbox is that you may start receiving a lot of spam emails, but this issue can be solved by using anti-spam filtering software. It is also vital to bear in mind that a mailbox with an enabled catch-all functionality cannot forward inbound emails to a third-party email address.

Catch-all Emails in Cloud Hosting

If you host a domain on our cloud platform and you have a cloud hosting account, you’ll be able to activate the catch-all feature for any e-mailbox that you create under the domain name. The Hepsia hosting Control Panel’s Email Manager section comes with quite a few features, but it is really easy to work with, so setting up a catch-all mailbox takes just one click. All the email addresses that you have will be listed in this section in alphabetical order and you’ll just need to click on the "Catch-all" button pertaining to the particular email address. Our system will warn you if there’s already another catch-all mailbox enabled for that domain or if the one that you’d like to be a catch-all mailbox has email forwarding activated, so you can either deactivate the latter feature or select another mailbox. Deactivating the catch-all option is just as simple and takes one more mouse click on the same button.

Catch-all Emails in Semi-dedicated Hosting

The custom Hepsia Control Panel that is included with each and every semi-dedicated server package that we’re offering will permit you to set up a catch-all e-mailbox without any difficulties even in case 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 side of each mailbox that you’ve created with your domain names in the hosting Control Panel’s Email Manager section. Since you can have only one mailbox with this feature per domain name, our system will let you know if you have already configured a different catch-all mailbox or if the one that you want to use has email forwarding enabled. If you decide that you don’t want this feature anymore, you can remove it by clicking again on the same icon. The Email Manager will also permit you to see your catch-all mailboxes at a glance.
