A catch-all e-mailbox is one that collects all the email messages sent to non-existent addresses. For example, if your address is info@domain.com, but someone misspells 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 mailbox per domain can have this feature enabled and in this way you will never miss messages because the other party has an out-of-date email address or has made a mistake. The disadvantage of setting up a catch-all mailbox is that you may begin receiving plenty of junk emails, but this problem can be rectified using anti-spam filtering software. It is also crucial to bear in mind that a mailbox with an activated catch-all functionality cannot redirect inbound email messages to a third-party mailbox.

Catch-all Emails in Shared Website Hosting

Creating a catch-all mailbox will be amazingly easy in case you have a shared website hosting with our company. You can enable this feature through our advanced, albeit easy-to-work-with Email Manager tool, which is included in the Hepsia hosting Control Panel, via which you’ll administer your web hosting account. You’ll see all the mailboxes that you’ve set up displayed alphabetically and on the right side of each one of them there will be a mini "Catch-all" icon, which will quickly reveal to you whether a certain mailbox stores all the emails associated with a certain domain name or not. With a single click on the icon you can activate or deactivate this feature whenever you wish. In case there is enabled email forwarding or in case some other mailbox has already been configured as a catch-all one for a certain domain name, you’ll receive a warning note from our system. The latter will not disable/replace anything automatically and without your consent.

Catch-all Emails in Semi-dedicated Servers

You will be able to set up a catch-all address with no more than a click if you’ve got a semi-dedicated server with our company and your emails are handled by our cloud hosting platform. All the addresses that you create with any domain name hosted in your semi-dedicated account will be shown in the Hepsia hosting Control Panel’s Email Manager section. Each of them will have a mini "Catch-all" icon on its right-hand side, so all it will take to activate this feature will be to click that icon. In the very same way you will be able to deactivate the feature, if you don’t need it any longer. Our system will let you know if you’re attempting to enable a second catch-all mailbox for a given domain or in case there’s active email forwarding, but it’ll never deactivate or alter any feature automatically or without your consent.
