A catch-all mailbox is one that captures all the messages sent to nonexistent email addresses. For example, if your email address is info@domain.com, but somebody misspells it and sends an email 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per domain name can have this feature enabled and in this way you’ll never miss messages because the other side has an out-of-date address or has made a mistake. The drawback of creating a catch-all mailbox is that you may begin receiving plenty of spam, but this problem can be rectified by using anti-spam filtering software. It is also essential to bear in mind that a mailbox with an activated catch-all functionality cannot forward inbound emails to a 3rd-party email address.

Catch-all Emails in Web Hosting

Creating a catch-all email mailbox will be very easy in case you’ve got a Linux web hosting package with our company. You can enable this feature through our powerful, yet intuitive Email Manager, which is included in the Hepsia Control Panel, via which you will administer the shared web hosting account itself. You’ll find all the mailboxes that you’ve created displayed in alphabetical order and to the right of each one of them there will be a tiny "Catch-all" icon, which will instantly reveal to you whether a specific mailbox stores all the email messages pertaining to a given domain or not. With a single mouse click on the icon you can enable or disable this option whenever you want. In case there’s active email forwarding or in case a different mailbox has already been configured as a catch-all one for a given domain name, you’ll get a warning notification from our system. The latter will not deactivate/replace anything automatically or without your consent.

Catch-all Emails in Semi-dedicated Hosting

The catch-all functionality can be activated effortlessly if you’ve got a semi-dedicated server plan with us. All the email addresses that you’ve created with the domains hosted in the account will be shown in the Hepsia Control Panel’s Email Manager section and you will find a mini button conveniently located right next to each one of them. With only a mouse click, you can activate or deactivate the catch-all option for any mailbox of your preference provided that there isn't another mailbox under the same domain name with this option already activated and there isn't activated email forwarding. Instead, you can right-click on an email address and enable this feature using the contextual menu that will appear. In case any of the conditions for creating a catch-all mailbox is not matched, our system will warn you, but will not replace or deactivate anything automatically.
