A catch-all mailbox is one that collects all the emails sent to invalid addresses. For instance, if your address is info@domain.com, but somebody miswrites it and sends an email 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domain name can have this feature enabled and in this way you will never miss messages because the other party has an out-of-date address or has made a typo. The downside of using a catch-all mailbox is that you may begin receiving a lot of junk emails, but this issue can be resolved using anti-spam protection software. It is also vital to bear in mind that a mailbox with an activated catch-all feature cannot redirect incoming messages to a third-party address.

Catch-all Emails in Cloud Web Hosting

If you host a domain name on our cloud web hosting platform and you have a cloud web hosting account, you’ll be able to enable the catch-all functionality for any e-mailbox that you create under the domain. The Hepsia Control Panel’s Email Manager section comes with quite a few features, but it is really easy to work with, so creating a catch-all mailbox takes only a click of the mouse. All the email addresses that you’ve set up will be enumerated in this section alphabetically and you will only need to click on the "Catch-all" button for the particular address. Our system will warn 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 pick a different mailbox. Disabling the catch-all option is just as simple and takes yet another click on the same button.

Catch-all Emails in Semi-dedicated Servers

A catch-all email address can be configured with a few mouse clicks if you have a semi-dedicated plan with us. The semi-dedicated hosting account will be administered via our custom Hepsia Control Panel and you’ll be able to set up email addresses with any domain name hosted there. To enable the catch-all feature for a specific mailbox, you will need to click the sign with the exact same name, which will be on the right-hand side of each mailbox. Disabling this feature can be accomplished in the exact same fashion and will not require more than a click either. In case the catch-all feature has already been enabled for a given domain name, you will receive a warning. The same is valid if the mailbox that you’d like to be a catch-all one has email forwarding activated, as our system will never disable or modify any feature automatically.
