A catch-all mailbox is one that captures all the emails sent to inactive email addresses. For instance, 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 configured. Just one single mailbox per domain name can have this feature activated and in this way you’ll never miss messages because the other party has an outdated email address or has made a mistake. The drawback of configuring a catch-all mailbox is that you may start receiving lots of junk emails, but this issue can be fixed by using anti-spam protection software. It is also crucial to bear in mind that a mailbox with an enabled catch-all functionality cannot redirect inbound emails to a 3rd-party mailbox.

Catch-all Emails in Cloud Web Hosting

Setting up a catch-all email mailbox will be quite easy in case you have a cloud web hosting with us. You can enable this option through our advanced, albeit intuitive Email Manager tool, which is included in the Hepsia Control Panel, via which you’ll administer the account itself. You will find all the email addresses that you have created listed in alphabetical order and on the right-hand side of each of them there will be a tiny "Catch-all" icon, which will instantly tell you if a certain mailbox gets all the messages for a given domain or not. With a single click on the icon you can activate or deactivate this feature at any time. If there’s enabled email forwarding or in case some other mailbox has already been configured as a catch-all one for a given domain name, you’ll get a warning message from our system. The latter will not deactivate/replace anything automatically and without your approval.

Catch-all Emails in Semi-dedicated Hosting

The custom-built Hepsia Control Panel that comes with each and every semi-dedicated server plan that we’re offering will allow you to set up a catch-all email mailbox without any efforts even if you do not have much email/web hosting experience. All you have to do to accomplish that is click the catch-all icon, which will be next to each email address that you have created with your domain names in the Email Manager section of the Control Panel. As you can have only one mailbox with this feature per domain name, our system will notify you if you have already created another catch-all mailbox or if the one that you’d like to use has email forwarding enabled. In case you reach the decision that you do not need this feature any longer, you can remove it by clicking again on the very same icon. The Email Manager will also allow you to view your catch-all mailboxes at a glance.
