A catch-all email mailbox is one that collects all the emails sent to invalid addresses. For example, if your address is info@domain.com, but somebody miswrites it and sends an email to inof@domain.com, it will still be received in the catch-all mailbox that you have configured. Just one single mailbox per domain name can have this feature enabled and in this way you’ll never miss messages because the other party has an obsolete email address or has made a mistake. The drawback of having a catch-all mailbox is that you may begin receiving a lot of spam messages, but this issue can be rectified using anti-spam protection software. It’s also crucial to bear in mind that a mailbox with an enabled catch-all functionality cannot redirect incoming emails to a 3rd-party email address.

Catch-all Emails in Cloud Website Hosting

If you host a domain name on our cloud web hosting platform and you’ve got a cloud website hosting account, you’ll be able to enable the catch-all functionality for any e-mailbox that you create under the domain. The Hepsia hosting Control Panel’s Email Manager section includes quite a lot of functions, but it is exceptionally intuitive, so creating a catch-all mailbox takes just one single mouse click. All the email addresses that you have created will be displayed in this section in alphabetical order and you’ll just need to click on the "Catch-all" button for the specific address. Our system will notify you if there is already another catch-all mailbox enabled for that domain or if the one that you would like to be a catch-all mailbox has email forwarding enabled, so you can either deactivate the latter feature or choose some other mailbox. Disabling the catch-all option is just as easy and requires one more mouse click on the same button.

Catch-all Emails in Semi-dedicated Servers

A catch-all email address can be configured with several mouse clicks if you’ve got a semi-dedicated plan with us. The semi-dedicated hosting account will be administered via our in-house developed Hepsia Control Panel and you’ll be able to create email addresses using any domain hosted here. To enable the catch-all feature for a mailbox, you will need to click the button with the same name, which will be next to each mailbox. Disabling the feature can be achieved in the exact same manner and will not take more than one click either. In case the catch-all functionality has already been activated for a particular domain, you’ll receive a notification. The same is valid if the mailbox that you want to be a catch-all one has email forwarding activated, as our system will never edit or disable any feature automatically.
