A catch-all email mailbox is one that collects all the emails sent to invalid addresses. For instance, if your address is info@domain.com, but someone mistypes it and sends a message to inof@domain.com, it will still be received in the catch-all mailbox that you have configured. Just one single mailbox per domain name can have this feature enabled and thus you will never miss messages because the other side has an out-of-date address or has made a spelling error. The downside of configuring a catch-all mailbox is that you may start receiving a lot of unsolicited bulk messages, but this issue can be rectified by using anti-spam filtering software. It is also vital to keep in mind that a mailbox with an enabled catch-all functionality cannot forward incoming messages to a third-party email address.

Catch-all Emails in Cloud Hosting

Configuring a catch-all email mailbox will be rather easy if you’ve got a Linux cloud hosting with us. You can activate the feature through our powerful, albeit easy-to-use Email Manager tool, which is an essential part of the Hepsia hosting Control Panel, via which you will manage your account. You will see all the email addresses that you have created shown in alphabetical order and next to each of them there will be a tiny "Catch-all" icon, which will instantly let you know whether a particular mailbox stores all the emails for a given domain or not. With one single click on the icon you can activate or deactivate this option whenever you like. If there’s enabled email forwarding or if a different mailbox has already been set up as a catch-all one for a specific domain, you’ll receive a warning from our system. The latter won’t disable/replace anything automatically or without your permission.

Catch-all Emails in Semi-dedicated Hosting

The custom-built Hepsia hosting Control Panel that is included with each semi-dedicated server plan that we are offering will allow you to configure a catch-all email mailbox without effort even in case you don’t have much web/email hosting experience. All it takes to do that is to click the catch-all icon, which will be next to each mailbox that you’ve created using your domains 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 warn you if you’ve already created another catch-all mailbox or if the one that you wish to use has email forwarding activated. If you reach the decision that you don’t want this feature any longer, 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.
