A catch-all e-mailbox is one that collects all the messages sent to nonexistent addresses. For example, if your address is info@domain.com, but somebody mistypes it and sends a message to inof@domain.com, it will still be received in the catch-all mailbox that you have configured. 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per domain can have this feature enabled and in this way you will never miss messages because the other party has an out-of-date email address or has made a mistake.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 negative aspect of setting up a catch-all mailbox is that you may begin receiving a lot of junk messages, but this problem can be solved by using an anti-spam filtering solution. It is also vital to keep in mind that a mailbox with an activated catch-all functionality cannot forward inbound messages to a third-party address.

Catch-all Emails in Web Hosting

You’ll be able to configure a catch-all mailbox effortlessly in case you’ve got a web hosting plan with our company. The Email Manager in our in-house built Hepsia hosting Control Panel is feature-rich, yet really simple to work with, and it will allow you to enable various options, including the catch-all one, with just several clicks. All the email addresses that you have created will be enumerated alphabetically in this section and on the right side of each of them you’ll see a mini "Catch-all" logo. Clicking on it once will activate the feature, clicking on it once more will disable it. As you can have only one such catch-all mailbox per domain, our system will notify you if you’ve already got another one with this option enabled or if you’ve got activated email forwarding.

Catch-all Emails in Semi-dedicated Servers

The catch-all option can be enabled with ease if you have a semi-dedicated server account with our company. All the email addresses that you have set up with the domain names hosted in the semi-dedicated server account will be shown in the Hepsia hosting Control Panel’s Email Manager section and you’ll notice a mini sign conveniently situated directly next to each of them. With just a single click, you can activate or deactivate the catch-all option for any mailbox of your choosing as long as there isn't another mailbox under the same domain name with this option already enabled and there isn't enabled email forwarding. Instead, you can right-click on an email address and activate the feature through the contextual menu that will show up. If any of the preconditions for setting up a catch-all mailbox is not fulfilled, our system will inform you, but will not deactivate or replace anything automatically.
