A catch-all e-mailbox is one that gathers all the email messages sent to inactive email addresses. For example, if your email address is info@domain.com, but somebody mistypes it and sends an email message to inof@domain.com, it will still be received in the catch-all mailbox that you have set up. Just one mailbox per domain can have this feature activated and in this way you’ll never miss emails because the other side has an outdated address or has made a spelling error. The disadvantage of configuring a catch-all mailbox is that you may start receiving a lot of junk email messages, but this problem can be fixed using an anti-spam filtering solution. It is also essential to remember that a mailbox with an activated catch-all functionality cannot redirect inbound email messages to a third-party mailbox.

Catch-all Emails in Shared Web Hosting

Setting up a catch-all email mailbox will be exceptionally easy if you have a shared web hosting with our company. You can activate the feature through our powerful, yet easy-to-work-with Email Manager tool, which is part of the Hepsia Control Panel, via which you’ll administer your hosting account. You’ll find all the email addresses that you’ve set up listed in alphabetical order and on the right side of each one of them there will be a small-size "Catch-all" icon, which will quickly let you know whether a particular mailbox gets all the messages for a certain domain name or not. With one single click on the icon you can activate or deactivate this option at any moment. If there’s activated email forwarding or in case some other 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 disable/replace anything automatically and without your approval.

Catch-all Emails in Semi-dedicated Hosting

You’ll be able to set up a catch-all address with no more than a click if you’ve got a Linux semi-dedicated hosting service with our company and your email messages are handled by our cloud web hosting platform. All the addresses that you set up using any domain name hosted in your account will be listed in the Hepsia Control Panel’s Email Manager section. Each of them will have a mini "Catch-all" icon next to it, so all it will take to enable this feature will be to click that icon. In the very same fashion you will be able to remove the feature, if you don’t need it any longer. Our system will warn you if you’re attempting to enable a 2nd catch-all address for a given domain or if there is enabled email forwarding, but it will never deactivate or modify anything automatically and without your approval.
