A catch-all mailbox is one that captures all the email messages sent to non-existent addresses. For instance, if your address is info@domain.com, but somebody mistypes it and sends a message to inof@domain.com, it will still be received in the catch-all mailbox that you have created. Only one single mailbox per domain can have this feature enabled and in this way you will never miss messages because the other party has an outdated email address or has made a mistake. The disadvantage of setting up a catch-all mailbox is that you may begin receiving plenty of junk emails, but this issue can be rectified by using anti-spam protection software. It’s also important to know that a mailbox with an activated catch-all functionality cannot redirect inbound emails to a 3rd-party mailbox.

Catch-all Emails in Web Hosting

Setting up a catch-all mailbox will be exceptionally easy in case you’ve got a web hosting with our company. You can enable the feature through our powerful, yet simple-to-work-with Email Manager tool, which is included in the Hepsia Control Panel, via which you will administer your account. You will see all the mailboxes that you’ve set up displayed alphabetically and to the right of each of them there will be a mini "Catch-all" icon, which will instantaneously inform you whether a particular mailbox gets all the emails for a certain domain name or not. With a single click on the icon you can activate or deactivate this option whenever you want. If there’s enabled email forwarding or in case another mailbox has already been set up as a catch-all one for a certain domain, you will get a warning text message from our system. The latter won’t deactivate/replace anything automatically and without your permission.

Catch-all Emails in Semi-dedicated Servers

The catch-all functionality can be enabled effortlessly in case you have a semi-dedicated server account with our company. All the email addresses that you’ve created with the domain names hosted in your semi-dedicated account will be enumerated in the Email Manager section of your Hepsia hosting Control Panel and you’ll see a tiny symbol handily located directly next to each one of them. With only one click of the mouse, you can enable or disable the catch-all option for any mailbox of your choice provided that there isn't another mailbox under the same domain with this option already activated and there isn't active email forwarding. Alternatively, you can right-click on an email address and activate the feature through the context menu that will come into sight. If any of the prerequisites for setting up a catch-all mailbox is not fulfilled, our system will warn you, but will not deactivate or replace anything automatically.
