A catch-all mailbox is one that captures all the email messages sent to inactive email addresses. For example, 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 created. Only one single mailbox per domain name can have this feature enabled and in this way you will never miss emails because the other side has an out-of-date address or has made a typo. The disadvantage of configuring a catch-all mailbox is that you may start receiving a lot of spam email messages, but this problem can be fixed using an anti-spam protection solution. It is also essential to know that a mailbox with an enabled catch-all functionality cannot redirect inbound messages to a 3rd-party address.

Catch-all Emails in Website Hosting

In case you’ve got a Linux website hosting package with us and you want to activate the catch-all option for a certain mailbox that you have in your web hosting account, it will take literally just one mouse click in the Email Manager section of your Hepsia hosting Control Panel to do that. A catch-all button is available next to each email address that you have created under any domain hosted in your account. You can select one email address per domain name by clicking the respective button. This will enable the feature instantaneously, so all emails sent to miswritten email addresses will be re-sent there. Clicking the button once again will deactivate the catch-all feature. In case you’ve got active email forwarding, our system will exhibit a warning notice and you won’t be able to enable the catch-all feature until you deactivate the forwarding or you can simply select a different mailbox to be the catch-all one.

Catch-all Emails in Semi-dedicated Hosting

You will be able to set up a catch-all email address with no more than one click if you have a Linux semi-dedicated hosting package with our company and your email messages are handled by our cloud platform. All the addresses that you create with any domain hosted in the semi-dedicated account will be enumerated in the Hepsia Control Panel’s Email Manager section. Each of them will have a small "Catch-all" icon next to it, so all it will take to enable the feature will be to click that icon. In the very same way you will be able to disable the feature, if you do not need it any longer. Our system will warn you in case you’re attempting to enable a 2nd catch-all mailbox for a certain domain name or if there’s active email forwarding, but it’ll never deactivate or change anything automatically or without your permission.
