A catch-all mailbox is one that captures all the messages sent to non-existent addresses. For instance, if your email address is info@domain.com, but someone miswrites it and sends an email to inof@domain.com, it will still be received in the catch-all mailbox that you have created. Just one mailbox per domain name can have this feature activated and in this way you will never miss messages because the other party has an obsolete address or has made a typographical error. The disadvantage of setting up a catch-all mailbox is that you may begin receiving plenty of unsolicited bulk messages, but this problem can be rectified by using anti-spam protection software. It’s also essential to bear in mind that a mailbox with an active catch-all functionality cannot redirect inbound email messages to a third-party email address.

Catch-all Emails in Hosting

Creating a catch-all mailbox will be amazingly easy in case you have a hosting plan with our company. You can activate this feature through our powerful, yet easy-to-use Email Manager, which is included in the Hepsia Control Panel, via which you’ll manage the hosting account itself. You will find all the mailboxes that you have set up displayed in alphabetical order and on the right side of each of them there will be a mini "Catch-all" icon, which will instantly show you whether a certain mailbox receives all the messages associated with a given domain name or not. With a single mouse click on the icon you can enable or disable this option whenever you want. If there’s activated email forwarding or in case some other mailbox has already been configured as a catch-all one for a particular domain, you’ll receive a warning message from our system. The latter won’t deactivate/replace anything automatically or without your approval.

Catch-all Emails in Semi-dedicated Servers

A catch-all address can be created with a couple of mouse clicks if you’ve got a semi-dedicated plan with our company. The semi-dedicated hosting account will be administered via our in-house built Hepsia Control Panel and you will be able to set up mailboxes under any domain name hosted here. To activate the catch-all functionality for a mailbox, you’ll need to click on the button with the exact same name, which will be next to each mailbox. Deactivating the feature can be achieved in the exact same fashion and will not take more than a click either. In case the catch-all feature has already been activated for a certain domain, you will get a warning notice. 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 disable or change any feature automatically.
