A catch-all mailbox is one that collects all the emails sent to nonexistent addresses. For instance, if your address is info@domain.com, but someone 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 mailbox per domain can have this feature activated and thus you will never miss emails because the other party has an obsolete email address or has made a typo. The downside of creating a catch-all mailbox is that you may begin receiving a lot of junk email messages, but this problem can be solved using anti-spam filtering software. It is also vital to know that a mailbox with an activated catch-all feature cannot forward inbound email messages to a 3rd-party mailbox.

Catch-all Emails in Shared Hosting

In case you host a domain on our cloud 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. The Hepsia hosting Control Panel’s Email Manager section offers quite a few features, but it’s really easy to use, so setting up a catch-all mailbox takes just one single click of the mouse. All the email addresses that you have created will be listed in this section in alphabetical order and you will simply have to click on the "Catch-all" button for the respective address. Our system will alert you if there’s already another catch-all mailbox activated for that domain name or if the one that you’d like to be a catch-all mailbox has email forwarding activated, so you can either turn off the latter feature or select a different mailbox. Deactivating the catch-all feature is just as easy and takes yet another mouse click on the same button.

Catch-all Emails in Semi-dedicated Servers

The custom-built Hepsia Control Panel that is included with every semi-dedicated server package that we offer will permit you to configure a catch-all email mailbox with ease even in case you don’t have much email/web hosting experience. All you have to do to achieve that is click on the catch-all icon, which will be on the right side of each mailbox that you have set up with your domains in the Email Manager section of the hosting Control Panel. As you can have only one single mailbox with this feature per domain name, our system will warn you if you have already created another catch-all mailbox or if the one that you wish to use has email forwarding activated. In case you reach the decision that you don’t want the feature anymore, you can disable it by clicking again on the exact same icon. The Email Manager will also allow you to see your catch-all mailboxes at a glance.
