A catch-all mailbox is one that gathers all the emails sent to invalid email addresses. For instance, if your 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 configured. Only one mailbox per domain name can have this feature enabled and thus you’ll never miss emails because the other party has an outdated email address or has made a spelling mistake. The negative aspect of having a catch-all mailbox is that you may begin receiving lots of unsolicited bulk messages, but this problem can be solved by using anti-spam protection software. It’s also essential to remember that a mailbox with an activated catch-all feature cannot redirect inbound emails to a 3rd-party mailbox.

Catch-all Emails in Web Hosting

In case you have a web hosting plan with our company and you would like to activate the catch-all option for a certain email mailbox that you have in your hosting account, it will take literally just a click in the Email Manager section of your Hepsia hosting Control Panel to achieve that. A catch-all button is available to the right of each and every email address that you have set up under any domain hosted in the account. You can pick one address per domain name by clicking on the corresponding button. This will enable the feature straight away, so all messages sent to misspelled addresses will be received there. Clicking on the button once again will deactivate the catch-all feature. In case you have enabled email forwarding, our system will display a warning notification and you will not be able to enable the catch-all feature unless you delete the forwarding or you can simply select a different mailbox to be the catch-all one.

Catch-all Emails in Semi-dedicated Servers

The custom Hepsia Control Panel that comes with each and every semi-dedicated server package that we offer will permit you to create a catch-all email mailbox without any difficulties even if you do not have much web/email hosting experience. All you have to do to accomplish that is click the catch-all icon, which will be to the right of each email address that you’ve created using your domains in the Control Panel’s Email Manager section. Since 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’d like to use has email forwarding enabled. If you decide that you do not need the feature any longer, you can turn it off by clicking once again on the very same icon. The Email Manager section will also permit you to view your catch-all mailboxes at a glance.
