A catch-all email mailbox is one that collects all the messages sent to invalid email addresses. For example, if your email address is info@domain.com, but somebody mistypes 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 can have this feature enabled and in this way you’ll never miss messages because the other party has an obsolete address or has made a typo. The drawback of using a catch-all mailbox is that you may begin receiving a lot of unsolicited messages, but this problem can be solved using anti-spam protection software. It is also vital to remember that a mailbox with an enabled catch-all functionality cannot redirect incoming email messages to a 3rd-party email address.

Catch-all Emails in Cloud Website Hosting

In case you host a domain name on our cloud platform and you’ve got a cloud website hosting account, you will be able to activate the catch-all feature for any mailbox that you create under the domain name. The Hepsia Control Panel’s Email Manager section offers quite a lot of features, but it’s stunningly user-friendly, so creating a catch-all mailbox requires just one mouse click. All the email addresses that you have created will be displayed in this section alphabetically and you’ll only have to click on the "Catch-all" button pertaining to the respective address. Our system will notify you if there’s already another catch-all mailbox activated for that domain or if the one that you’d like to be a catch-all mailbox has email forwarding activated, so you can either deactivate the latter feature or select some other mailbox. Deactivating the catch-all feature is just as simple and takes yet another click on the same button.

Catch-all Emails in Semi-dedicated Servers

The custom-created Hepsia hosting Control Panel that comes with each and every semi-dedicated server plan that we are offering will permit you to configure a catch-all mailbox easily even in case you don’t have much web/email hosting experience. All it takes to accomplish that is to click the catch-all icon, which will be on the right side of each email address that you’ve created using your domain names in the hosting Control Panel’s Email Manager section. Since you can have only one single mailbox with this feature per domain, our system will let you know if you have already configured another catch-all mailbox or if the one that you’d like to use has email forwarding enabled. In case you reach the decision that you do not want the feature anymore, you can disable it by clicking once again on the exact same icon. The Email Manager section will also permit you to see your catch-all mailboxes at a glance.
