A catch-all mailbox is one that gathers all the emails sent to invalid email addresses. For example, if your address is info@domain.com, but somebody mistypes it and sends an email message to inof@domain.com, it will still be received in the catch-all mailbox that you have set up. Just one single mailbox per domain name can have this feature activated and thus you will never miss messages because the other side has an outdated email address or has made a typo. The disadvantage of creating a catch-all mailbox is that you may start receiving lots of unsolicited email messages, but this issue can be solved using anti-spam protection software. It’s also crucial to know that a mailbox with an enabled catch-all feature cannot forward incoming email messages to a third-party address.

Catch-all Emails in Web Hosting

Configuring a catch-all e-mailbox will be amazingly easy if you have a Linux web hosting with us. You can activate the feature through our powerful, albeit simple-to-use Email Manager tool, which is integrated into the Hepsia Control Panel, via which you’ll manage the hosting account itself. You will see all the mailboxes that you’ve set up displayed in alphabetical order and on the right side of each one there will be a small "Catch-all" icon, which will immediately show you whether a certain mailbox gets all the email messages for a given domain or not. With one mouse click on the icon you can enable or disable the feature at any time. In case there is enabled email forwarding or in case a different mailbox has already been set up as a catch-all one for a particular domain, you will get a warning text message from our system. The latter will not deactivate/replace anything automatically or without your approval.

Catch-all Emails in Semi-dedicated Servers

A catch-all email address can be configured with a couple of mouse clicks if you have a Linux semi-dedicated hosting plan with our company. The semi-dedicated hosting account will be managed through our in-house created Hepsia hosting Control Panel and you will be able to create email addresses using any domain registered here. To enable the catch-all functionality for a mailbox, you’ll have to click on the sign with the same name, which will be on the right side of each email address. Deactivating this feature can be done in the very same way and will not require more than a click either. In case the catch-all functionality has already been enabled for a given domain, you will receive a warning note. The same goes if the mailbox that you’d like to be a catch-all one has email forwarding activated, as our system will never change or disable any feature automatically.
