A catch-all mailbox is one that captures all the email messages sent to inactive email addresses. For example, if your email address is [email protected], but someone miswrites it and sends a message to [email protected], 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 will never miss messages because the other side has an obsolete email address or has made a spelling mistake. The disadvantage of using a catch-all mailbox is that you may start receiving a lot of junk email messages, but this issue can be fixed by using anti-spam filtering software. It is also essential to remember that a mailbox with an activated catch-all functionality cannot forward incoming emails to a 3rd-party address.

Catch-all Emails in Shared Hosting

Setting up a catch-all e-mailbox will be pretty easy in case you’ve got a Linux shared hosting package with us. You can enable the feature through our powerful, albeit simple-to-work-with Email Manager tool, which is part of the Hepsia Control Panel, via which you’ll manage the hosting account itself. You will see all the email addresses that you’ve created shown in alphabetical order and on the right-hand side of each of them there will be a small "Catch-all" icon, which will instantly notify you whether a particular mailbox stores all the email messages for a given domain name or not. With a single mouse click on the icon you can activate or deactivate this feature at any time. In case there is activated email forwarding or if a different mailbox has already been set up as a catch-all one for a particular domain, you will receive a warning note from our system. The latter will not replace/disable anything automatically and without your permission.

Catch-all Emails in Semi-dedicated Hosting

You’ll be able to create a catch-all email address with no more than a click if you’ve got a Linux semi-dedicated hosting package with our company and your email messages are handled by our cloud platform. All the addresses that you set up using any domain hosted in the semi-dedicated hosting account will be listed in the Email Manager section of your Hepsia hosting Control Panel. Each of them will have a tiny "Catch-all" icon next to it, so all it will take to enable this functionality will be to click on that icon. In the same fashion you’ll be able to disable the feature, in case you do not need it any longer. Our system will inform you in case you’re attempting to activate a 2nd catch-all email address for a certain domain or in case there’s activated email forwarding, but it’ll never change or disable anything automatically or without your approval.
