A catch-all mailbox is one that gathers all the email messages sent to invalid 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 configured. Only one mailbox per domain can have this feature activated and thus you will never miss messages because the other party has an outdated email address or has made a spelling mistake. The drawback of creating a catch-all mailbox is that you may begin receiving lots of spam emails, but this issue can be solved using an anti-spam filtering solution. It is also vital to remember that a mailbox with an activated catch-all feature cannot redirect inbound emails to a 3rd-party email address.

Catch-all Emails in Cloud Hosting

Creating a catch-all email mailbox will be very easy if you’ve got a Linux cloud hosting with us. You can enable the feature through our advanced, yet easy-to-work-with Email Manager tool, which is an integral part of the Hepsia hosting Control Panel, via which you will administer the shared web hosting account itself. You’ll see all the email addresses that you’ve created listed alphabetically and on the right side of each one of them there will be a small "Catch-all" icon, which will quickly inform you if a certain mailbox receives all the emails associated with a given domain name or not. With a single click on the icon you can enable or disable this feature at any moment. In case there’s active email forwarding or in case some other mailbox has already been set up as a catch-all one for a particular domain name, you’ll get a warning from our system. The latter won’t disable/replace anything automatically or without your approval.

Catch-all Emails in Semi-dedicated Servers

You’ll be able to create a catch-all address with no more than a click in case you’ve got a Linux semi-dedicated server with us and your email messages are handled by our cloud web hosting platform. All the email addresses that you create using any domain hosted in the semi-dedicated hosting account will be shown in the Email Manager section of your Hepsia Control Panel. Each of them will have a small "Catch-all" icon on its right-hand side, so all it will take to activate this option will be to click that icon. In the exact same manner you’ll be able to turn off the feature, if you do not need it any longer. Our system will warn you in case you are attempting to activate a second catch-all email address for a specific domain name or in case there is activated email forwarding, but it’ll never disable or change any feature automatically or without your consent.
