A catch-all mailbox is one that collects all the emails sent to nonexistent email addresses. For example, if your email address is info@domain.com, but somebody miswrites it and sends an email message to inof@domain.com, it will still be received in the catch-all mailbox that you have created. Only one single mailbox per domain name can have this feature enabled and thus you’ll never miss emails because the other side has an outdated email address or has made a typographical error. The disadvantage of configuring a catch-all mailbox is that you may start receiving lots of unsolicited messages, but this problem can be rectified using anti-spam filtering software. It is also essential to remember that a mailbox with an active catch-all feature cannot forward incoming messages to a third-party mailbox.

Catch-all Emails in Web Hosting

Configuring a catch-all e-mailbox will be stunningly easy in case you have a Linux web hosting with us. You can enable the feature through our advanced, albeit simple-to-work-with Email Manager, which is integrated into the Hepsia hosting Control Panel, via which you’ll administer your account. You will see all the email addresses that you’ve set up enumerated alphabetically and on the right-hand side of each of them there will be a small "Catch-all" icon, which will immediately show you whether a particular mailbox gets all the email messages for a given domain name or not. With a single click on the icon you can enable or disable the feature whenever you want. If there is activated email forwarding or in case some other mailbox has already been set up as a catch-all one for a given domain name, you will receive a notification from our system. The latter won’t replace/deactivate anything automatically or without your permission.

Catch-all Emails in Semi-dedicated Hosting

A catch-all email address can be created with several mouse clicks if you’ve got a Linux semi-dedicated hosting with us. The semi-dedicated hosting account will be administered through our custom-built Hepsia hosting Control Panel and you will be able to set up mailboxes using any domain name registered there. To activate the catch-all option for a certain mailbox, you’ll have to click on the button with the same name, which will be on the right-hand side of each email address. Deactivating this functionality can be done in the same manner and will not require more than one click either. If the catch-all functionality has already been enabled for a given domain, you will get a warning text message. The same is valid if the mailbox that you wish to be a catch-all one has email forwarding enabled, as our system will never replace or disable anything automatically.
