A catch-all email mailbox is one that collects all the emails sent to non-existent addresses. For example, if your address is info@domain.com, but somebody miswrites 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per domain can have this feature activated and in this way you will never miss emails because the other side has an outdated address or has made a typo. The downside of having a catch-all mailbox is that you may begin receiving plenty of spam, but this issue can be rectified using anti-spam filtering software. It’s also important to remember that a mailbox with an enabled catch-all feature cannot redirect incoming messages to a 3rd-party mailbox.

Catch-all Emails in Cloud Website Hosting

Configuring a catch-all e-mailbox will be amazingly easy if you’ve got a cloud website hosting with us. You can enable the feature through our advanced, albeit simple-to-work-with Email Manager tool, which is an essential part of the Hepsia hosting Control Panel, via which you will administer the web hosting account itself. You’ll see all the email addresses that you have set up displayed in alphabetical order and next to each one there will be a mini "Catch-all" icon, which will instantaneously tell you if a specific mailbox stores all the email messages associated with a certain domain or not. With one single click on the icon you can enable or disable the feature whenever you want. In case there’s activated email forwarding or if another mailbox has already been configured as a catch-all one for a certain domain name, you will get a warning notification from our system. The latter won’t replace/deactivate anything automatically and without your approval.

Catch-all Emails in Semi-dedicated Hosting

A catch-all address can be set up with a couple of clicks of the mouse if you’ve got a semi-dedicated service with our company. The semi-dedicated hosting account will be administered via our custom Hepsia hosting Control Panel and you’ll be able to set up email addresses with any domain registered here. To activate the catch-all option for a mailbox, you will have to click on the symbol with the exact same name, which will be next to each email address. Deactivating this functionality can be accomplished in the same manner and will not require more than a click either. In case the catch-all feature has already been activated for a specific domain name, you will get a warning text message. The same goes if the mailbox that you’d like to be a catch-all one has email forwarding enabled, as our system will never alter or disable anything automatically.
