A catch-all email mailbox is one that gathers all the emails sent to nonexistent addresses. For instance, 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. Only one mailbox per domain name can have this feature activated and in this way you’ll never miss emails because the other side has an outdated address or has made a spelling mistake. The downside of configuring a catch-all mailbox is that you may begin receiving plenty of spam, but this problem can be fixed by using anti-spam filtering software. It’s also essential to know that a mailbox with an activated catch-all functionality cannot forward inbound email messages to a third-party email address.

Catch-all Emails in Cloud Hosting

In case you host a domain name on our cloud hosting platform and you’ve got a cloud hosting account, you’ll be able to activate the catch-all functionality for any email mailbox that you set up under the domain name. The Email Manager section of the Hepsia hosting Control Panel comes with quite a few features, but it’s astonishingly simple to use, so creating a catch-all mailbox requires just one single mouse click. All the email addresses that you’ve set up will be listed in this section in alphabetical order and you will simply have to click on the "Catch-all" button for the given email address. Our system will inform you if there’s already another catch-all mailbox enabled 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 disable the latter feature or pick a different mailbox. Disabling the catch-all feature is just as easy and takes yet another mouse click on the exact same button.

Catch-all Emails in Semi-dedicated Servers

The in-house developed Hepsia Control Panel that is included with each and every semi-dedicated server package that we are offering will allow you to create a catch-all e-mailbox without difficulty even in case you do not have much email/web hosting experience. All it takes to accomplish that is to click on the catch-all icon, which will be next to each email address that you’ve created with your domain names in the Email Manager section of the hosting Control Panel. As you can have just one mailbox with this feature per domain, our system will inform you if you’ve already set up a different catch-all mailbox or if the one that you would like to use has email forwarding activated. If you reach the decision that you don’t need this feature anymore, you can turn it off by clicking once again on the exact same icon. The Email Manager will also allow you to view your catch-all mailboxes at a glance.
