A catch-all mailbox is one that collects all the messages sent to nonexistent addresses. For example, if your address is info@domain.com, but somebody miswrites 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 single mailbox per domain name can have this feature activated and in this way you’ll never miss messages because the other party has an outdated address or has made a typographical error. The drawback of setting up a catch-all mailbox is that you may start receiving a lot of unsolicited messages, but this problem can be resolved by using anti-spam filtering software. It is also important to remember that a mailbox with an enabled catch-all functionality cannot forward incoming messages to a third-party email address.

Catch-all Emails in Cloud Hosting

You’ll be able to set up a catch-all mailbox effortlessly in case you have a cloud hosting plan with us. The Email Manager tool in our in-house developed Hepsia Control Panel is feature-laden, yet amazingly user-friendly, and it will allow you to activate different options, including the catch-all one, with just a couple of clicks of the mouse. All the mailboxes that you’ve set up will be displayed in alphabetical order in this section and on the right-hand side of each of them you’ll see a tiny "Catch-all" sign. Clicking on it once will enable this option, clicking it for a second time will disable it. Since you can have just one such mailbox per domain name, our system will inform you if you already have another one with this option activated or if you have active email forwarding.

Catch-all Emails in Semi-dedicated Hosting

A catch-all address can be created with a few clicks in case you’ve got a Linux semi-dedicated hosting package with our company. The hosting account will be administered through our custom-built Hepsia hosting Control Panel and you will be able to create mailboxes using any domain name registered here. To activate the catch-all option for a given mailbox, you will have to click the symbol with the same name, which will be on the right-hand side of each email address. Deactivating this feature can be done in the very same manner and will not take more than one click either. In case the catch-all option has already been enabled for a specific domain name, you’ll get a warning note. The same is valid if the mailbox that you’d like to be a catch-all one has email forwarding enabled, as our system will never alter or disable anything automatically.
