A catch-all mailbox is one that gathers all the emails sent to nonexistent email addresses. For example, if your address is info@domain.com, but someone miswrites it and sends an email to inof@domain.com, it will still be received in the catch-all mailbox that you have set up. Only one single mailbox per domain name can have this feature enabled and thus you’ll never miss emails because the other party has an out-of-date address or has made a spelling mistake. The drawback of setting up a catch-all mailbox is that you may begin receiving a lot of unsolicited bulk email messages, but this problem can be fixed by using anti-spam filtering software. It’s also important to know that a mailbox with an active catch-all functionality cannot redirect inbound emails to a third-party address.

Catch-all Emails in Shared Hosting

If you host a domain on our cloud hosting platform and you have a shared hosting account, you will be able to activate the catch-all feature for any mailbox that you set up under the domain name. The Email Manager section of the Hepsia hosting Control Panel includes quite a lot of features, but it is really easy to work with, so creating a catch-all mailbox requires only one single click. All the email addresses that you have set up will be enumerated in this section in alphabetical order and you will only need to click the "Catch-all" button associated with the specific address. Our system will notify you if there is already another catch-all mailbox enabled for that domain or if the one that you want to be a catch-all mailbox has email forwarding enabled, so you can either disable the latter feature or pick some other mailbox. Deactivating the catch-all option is just as easy and requires yet another click on the same button.

Catch-all Emails in Semi-dedicated Hosting

A catch-all address can be configured with several clicks of the mouse in case you have a semi-dedicated hosting with our company. The semi-dedicated hosting account will be administered through our custom-developed Hepsia hosting Control Panel and you will be able to create email addresses with any domain name registered here. To enable the catch-all feature for a certain mailbox, you’ll need to click the icon with the exact same name, which will be to the right of each email address. Disabling this option can be accomplished in the same manner and will not require more than one click either. If the catch-all option has already been enabled for a given domain name, you’ll receive a warning note. The same goes if the mailbox that you’d like to be a catch-all one has email forwarding enabled, as our system will never alter or disable anything automatically.
