A catch-all mailbox is one that gathers all the email messages sent to inactive email addresses. For instance, if your email 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mailbox per domain name can have this feature enabled and thus you will never miss emails because the other side has an out-of-date email address or has made a typographical error. The drawback of having a catch-all mailbox is that you may start receiving plenty of spam messages, but this issue can be resolved using an anti-spam protection solution. It’s also important to remember that a mailbox with an activated catch-all functionality cannot redirect inbound email messages to a 3rd-party mailbox.

Catch-all Emails in Web Hosting

Setting up a catch-all email mailbox will be rather easy if you’ve got a Linux web hosting with us. You can enable the feature through our advanced, yet intuitive Email Manager, which is an essential part of the Hepsia hosting Control Panel, via which you will manage the hosting account itself. You will find all the email addresses that you have created listed in alphabetical order and on the right side of each one of them there will be a tiny "Catch-all" icon, which will quickly reveal to you whether a specific mailbox stores all the email messages for a given domain or not. With a single click on the icon you can enable or disable the feature at any moment. In case there is enabled email forwarding or if some other mailbox has already been set up as a catch-all one for a given domain, you will get a notification from our system. The latter won’t deactivate/replace anything automatically or without your consent.

Catch-all Emails in Semi-dedicated Servers

You’ll be able to set up a catch-all email address with no more than a click in case you have a semi-dedicated hosting plan with us and your email messages are handled by our cloud platform. All the mailboxes that you set up using any domain hosted in the semi-dedicated hosting account will be enumerated in the Hepsia Control Panel’s Email Manager section. Each of them will have a small "Catch-all" icon on its right-hand side, so all it will take to enable this feature will be to click that icon. In the exact same fashion you will be able to turn off the feature, in case you don’t need it anymore. Our system will let you know in case you’re attempting to enable a 2nd catch-all email address for a given domain name or in case there is activated email forwarding, but it will never deactivate or change anything automatically and without your permission.
