A catch-all email mailbox is one that gathers all the email messages sent to invalid email addresses. For example, if your address is info@domain.com, but someone mistypes it and sends a 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per domain can have this feature enabled and in this way you will never miss messages because the other side has an out-of-date address or has made a spelling error. The disadvantage of creating a catch-all mailbox is that you may start receiving plenty of spam messages, but this issue can be solved by using anti-spam protection software. It’s also important to keep in mind that a mailbox with an active catch-all feature cannot forward incoming emails to a third-party address.

Catch-all Emails in Cloud Hosting

In case you host a domain on our cloud hosting platform and you have a cloud hosting account, you’ll be able to enable the catch-all feature for any e-mailbox that you set up under the domain name. The Hepsia hosting Control Panel’s Email Manager section comes with quite a lot of features, but it is incredibly easy to use, so configuring a catch-all mailbox takes just a single click. All the email addresses that you’ve set up will be enumerated in this section alphabetically and you will just have to click the "Catch-all" button pertaining to the concrete email address. Our system will warn you if there’s already another catch-all mailbox activated for that domain or if the one that you would like to be a catch-all mailbox has email forwarding enabled, so you can either disable the latter feature or pick a different mailbox. Deactivating the catch-all feature is just as simple and requires yet another click on the same button.

Catch-all Emails in Semi-dedicated Hosting

The catch-all option can be enabled without any effort if you’ve got a semi-dedicated server account with our company. All the email addresses that you’ve set up with the domain names hosted in your account will be enumerated in the Email Manager section of your Hepsia Control Panel and you will notice a tiny symbol handily situated directly next to each of them. With only a mouse click, you can enable or disable the catch-all option for any mailbox of your choice as long as there isn't another mailbox under the same domain with the option already enabled and there isn't enabled email forwarding. Instead, you can right-click on a mailbox and enable this option through the context menu that will surface. If any of the requirements for setting up a catch-all mailbox is not matched, our system will warn you, but will not replace or disable anything automatically.
