A catch-all email mailbox is one that collects all the messages sent to inactive addresses. For instance, if your address is info@domain.com, but somebody misspells it and sends an email to inof@domain.com, it will still be received in the catch-all mailbox that you have created. Only 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domain name can have this feature activated and in this way you will never miss messages because the other party has an out-of-date address or has made a spelling error. The downside of setting up a catch-all mailbox is that you may begin receiving lots of unsolicited messages, but this issue can be rectified by using an anti-spam filtering solution. It’s also vital to keep in mind that a mailbox with an enabled catch-all functionality cannot redirect incoming emails to a third-party email address.

Catch-all Emails in Hosting

You’ll be able to configure a catch-all e-mailbox with ease if you’ve got a hosting plan with us. The Email Manager tool in our in-house built Hepsia hosting Control Panel is feature-rich, yet really user-friendly, and it will permit you to activate different options, including the catch-all one, with no more than several clicks of the mouse. All the email addresses that you have will be displayed in alphabetical order in this section and on the right side of each of them you’ll notice a mini "Catch-all" button. Clicking on it once will enable the feature, clicking it once again will disable it. Since you can have just one such catch-all mailbox per domain name, our system will notify you if you’ve already got a different one with this option enabled or if you’ve got enabled email forwarding.

Catch-all Emails in Semi-dedicated Servers

A catch-all address can be set up with a couple of mouse clicks in case you have a semi-dedicated hosting plan with our company. The semi-dedicated hosting account will be administered through our custom-created Hepsia hosting Control Panel and you will be able to set up email addresses using any domain name hosted there. To activate the catch-all functionality for a specific mailbox, you will have to click the button with the exact same name, which will be on the right-hand side of each email address. Deactivating this option can be achieved in the same fashion and will not require more than one click either. If the catch-all feature has already been enabled for a specific domain name, you will get a warning alert. The same goes if the mailbox that you wish to be a catch-all one has email forwarding activated, as our system will never deactivate or replace any feature automatically.
