A catch-all e-mailbox is one that captures all the email messages sent to nonexistent addresses. For example, if your address is info@domain.com, but somebody misspells it and sends a message to inof@domain.com, it will still be received in the catch-all mailbox that you have created. Just one single mailbox per domain can have this feature activated and in this way you will never miss messages because the other party has an out-of-date address or has made a spelling mistake. The negative aspect of setting up a catch-all mailbox is that you may start receiving a lot of unsolicited emails, but this issue can be rectified by using an anti-spam filtering solution. It is also essential to remember that a mailbox with an activated catch-all functionality cannot redirect incoming messages to a third-party address.

Catch-all Emails in Web Hosting

Creating a catch-all email mailbox will be pretty easy in case you’ve got a Linux web hosting with our company. You can activate this feature through our advanced, yet easy-to-use Email Manager tool, which is built into the Hepsia hosting Control Panel, via which you’ll administer the shared hosting account itself. You will see all the email addresses that you’ve created shown in alphabetical order and on the right-hand side of each one of them there will be a small "Catch-all" icon, which will quickly show you whether a certain mailbox gets all the messages for a given domain or not. With one click on the icon you can activate or deactivate the feature whenever you want. In case there’s enabled email forwarding or in case a different mailbox has already been set up as a catch-all one for a given domain, you will receive a warning notification from our system. The latter won’t disable/replace anything automatically or without your approval.

Catch-all Emails in Semi-dedicated Hosting

A catch-all address can be set up with a couple of mouse clicks in case you have a Linux semi-dedicated hosting with our company. The semi-dedicated hosting account will be administered through our custom-created Hepsia hosting Control Panel and you’ll be able to set up mailboxes under any domain registered here. To enable the catch-all option for a given mailbox, you’ll need to click on the button with the exact same name, which will be on the right-hand side of each email address. Disabling this option can be accomplished in the exact same way and will not take more than one click either. In case the catch-all functionality has already been activated for a particular domain name, you will receive a warning. The same is valid if the mailbox that you’d like to be a catch-all one has email forwarding enabled, as our system will never deactivate or alter anything automatically.
