A catch-all email mailbox is one that captures all the emails sent to non-existent email addresses. For instance, if your email 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 set up. Only one mailbox per domain can have this feature activated and thus you will never miss emails because the other party has an out-of-date email address or has made a spelling mistake. The drawback of setting up a catch-all mailbox is that you may begin receiving plenty of unsolicited bulk email messages, but this problem can be solved by using an anti-spam filtering solution. It’s also important to keep in mind that a mailbox with an enabled catch-all functionality cannot forward inbound messages to a 3rd-party mailbox.

Catch-all Emails in Cloud Website Hosting

If you host a domain on our cloud platform and you’ve got a cloud website hosting account, you’ll be able to activate the catch-all feature for any email mailbox that you set up under the domain name. The Email Manager section of the Hepsia hosting Control Panel offers quite a few functions, but it is astonishingly intuitive, so configuring a catch-all mailbox takes only one single click. All the email addresses that you’ve got will be enumerated in this section alphabetically and you’ll simply need to click on the "Catch-all" button associated with the given email address. Our system will warn 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 disable the latter feature or pick another mailbox. Deactivating the catch-all feature is just as simple and takes yet another mouse click on the very same button.

Catch-all Emails in Semi-dedicated Hosting

The in-house built Hepsia Control Panel that comes with each semi-dedicated server package that we’re offering will permit you to set up a catch-all mailbox without effort even if you don’t have much web/email hosting experience. All you have to do to accomplish that is click the catch-all icon, which will be on the right side of each email address that you’ve set up using your domain names in the Control Panel’s Email Manager section. As you can have just one mailbox with this feature per domain, our system will inform you if you’ve already created another catch-all mailbox or if the one that you’d like to use has email forwarding activated. In case you decide that you don’t want this feature any longer, you can turn it off by clicking once again on the very same icon. The Email Manager will also permit you to view your catch-all mailboxes at a glance.
