A catch-all email mailbox is one that gathers all the email messages sent to inactive addresses. For instance, if your address is info@domain.com, but someone mistypes it and sends an email to inof@domain.com, it will still be received in the catch-all mailbox that you have configured. Just one mailbox per domain can have this feature activated and thus you will never miss emails because the other party has an outdated address or has made a spelling mistake. The disadvantage of having a catch-all mailbox is that you may begin receiving lots of spam email messages, but this problem can be solved by using anti-spam filtering software. It’s also crucial to know that a mailbox with an enabled catch-all functionality cannot forward incoming messages to a third-party address.

Catch-all Emails in Cloud Website Hosting

Configuring a catch-all email mailbox will be surprisingly easy if you’ve got a Linux cloud website hosting service with our company. You can enable this option through our advanced, albeit simple-to-use Email Manager tool, which is an integral part of the Hepsia Control Panel, via which you will manage your shared web hosting account. You’ll find all the email addresses that you have created enumerated alphabetically and on the right side of each one there will be a tiny "Catch-all" icon, which will instantly inform you if a particular mailbox receives all the messages associated with a certain domain or not. With one single mouse click on the icon you can enable or disable this feature at any moment. If there is enabled email forwarding or in case some other mailbox has already been configured as a catch-all one for a specific domain name, you’ll get a warning note from our system. The latter won’t replace/disable anything automatically and without your permission.

Catch-all Emails in Semi-dedicated Hosting

The catch-all functionality can be activated without effort in case you’ve got a semi-dedicated server account with our company. All the email addresses that you have created using the domain names hosted in the semi-dedicated account will be shown in the Email Manager section of your Hepsia Control Panel and you will notice a mini icon conveniently situated right next to each of them. With just one single mouse click, you can enable or disable the catch-all option for any mailbox of your liking as long as there isn't another mailbox under that same domain name with the option already enabled and there isn't enabled email forwarding. Instead, you can right-click on an email address and enable the feature using the context menu that will come into view. In case any of the prerequisites for setting up a catch-all mailbox is not fulfilled, our system will warn you, but will not deactivate or replace anything automatically.
