A catch-all mailbox is one that captures all the emails sent to invalid email addresses. For example, if your address is info@domain.com, but somebody misspells 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 single mailbox per domain can have this feature activated and thus you will never miss emails because the other side has an outdated address or has made a typo. The disadvantage of having a catch-all mailbox is that you may begin receiving a lot of unsolicited bulk emails, but this issue can be solved using an anti-spam filtering solution. It is also vital to keep in mind that a mailbox with an enabled catch-all functionality cannot redirect incoming messages to a 3rd-party address.

Catch-all Emails in Shared Hosting

You’ll be able to set up a catch-all mailbox effortlessly if you’ve got a shared hosting account with our company. The Email Manager tool in our in-house built Hepsia hosting Control Panel is fully featured, yet extremely easy to use, and it will permit you to activate different features, including the catch-all one, with just a few clicks. All the mailboxes that you have will be displayed alphabetically in this section and on the right-hand side of each one you will find a small-size "Catch-all" icon. Clicking on it once will enable the feature, clicking on it once again will deactivate it. As you can have just one such mailbox per domain name, our system will warn you if you already have a different one with this option activated 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’ve got a semi-dedicated server with us. The semi-dedicated account will be administered via our custom-created Hepsia hosting Control Panel and you’ll be able to create email addresses under any domain name hosted there. To activate the catch-all option for a mailbox, you will need to click the logo with the same name, which will be next to each email address. Disabling this feature can be done in the same manner and will not take more than a click either. In case the catch-all feature has already been activated for a particular domain, you’ll receive a warning notification. The same goes if the mailbox that you would like to be a catch-all one has email forwarding enabled, as our system will never deactivate or modify any feature automatically.
