A catch-all e-mailbox is one that captures all the messages sent to invalid addresses. For example, if your address is info@domain.com, but somebody misspells it and sends an email message to inof@domain.com, it will still be received in the catch-all mailbox that you have configured. Just one single mailbox per domain can have this feature activated and in this way you will never miss messages because the other side has an outdated address or has made a typo. The drawback of using a catch-all mailbox is that you may begin receiving a lot of unsolicited emails, but this issue can be rectified using an anti-spam filtering solution. It’s also important to bear in mind that a mailbox with an active catch-all feature cannot redirect inbound emails to a 3rd-party address.

Catch-all Emails in Hosting

Setting up a catch-all e-mailbox will be unbelievably easy if you have a Linux hosting with our company. You can activate this feature through our advanced, albeit simple-to-use Email Manager, which is an indivisible part of the Hepsia hosting Control Panel, via which you will manage the hosting account itself. You’ll see all the email addresses that you have set up shown alphabetically and on the right-hand side of each one there will be a mini "Catch-all" icon, which will quickly let you know whether a specific mailbox receives all the emails for a certain domain or not. With one click on the icon you can enable or disable the feature at any time. If there’s activated email forwarding or in case another mailbox has already been configured as a catch-all one for a specific domain, you’ll get a warning note from our system. The latter won’t disable/replace anything automatically or without your consent.

Catch-all Emails in Semi-dedicated Servers

A catch-all address can be configured with several clicks of the mouse if you have a Linux semi-dedicated hosting service with us. The hosting account will be administered through our custom-built Hepsia Control Panel and you’ll be able to set up email addresses under any domain registered there. To activate the catch-all functionality for a specific mailbox, you’ll need to click the icon with the same name, which will be next to each mailbox. Deactivating this option can be done in the exact same way and will not require more than a click either. If the catch-all feature has already been enabled for a specific domain, you’ll get a warning message. The same is valid if the mailbox that you’d like to be a catch-all one has email forwarding activated, as our system will never disable or edit any feature automatically.
