A catch-all email mailbox is one that captures all the email messages sent to invalid addresses. For example, if your email 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 set up. Just one mailbox per domain can have this feature activated and thus you’ll never miss emails because the other side has an out-of-date email address or has made a mistake. The negative aspect of having a catch-all mailbox is that you may begin receiving a lot of unsolicited bulk messages, but this issue can be resolved by using an anti-spam protection solution. It’s also essential to remember that a mailbox with an activated catch-all feature cannot redirect inbound email messages to a third-party address.

Catch-all Emails in Cloud Web Hosting

Configuring a catch-all mailbox will be very easy if you have a Linux cloud web hosting with us. You can activate the feature through our advanced, albeit easy-to-work-with Email Manager tool, which is an indivisible part of the Hepsia hosting Control Panel, via which you’ll administer the hosting account itself. You will see all the email addresses that you’ve created shown alphabetically and on the right-hand side of each one of them there will be a tiny "Catch-all" icon, which will quickly reveal to you whether a specific mailbox receives all the messages associated with a given domain or not. With one click on the icon you can activate or deactivate this feature whenever you like. If there is enabled email forwarding or in case some other mailbox has already been configured as a catch-all one for a particular domain, you’ll receive an alert from our system. The latter won’t disable/replace anything automatically and without your approval.

Catch-all Emails in Semi-dedicated Hosting

The catch-all feature can be enabled without any difficulty in case you have a semi-dedicated server account with us. All the email addresses that you have set up with the domain names hosted in the account will be enumerated in the Hepsia Control Panel’s Email Manager section and you will find a tiny logo conveniently situated directly next to each of them. With only one single click of the mouse, you can enable or disable the catch-all option for any mailbox of your choosing as long as there isn't another mailbox under the same domain with the option already enabled and there isn't enabled email forwarding. Alternatively, you can right-click on a mailbox and enable this option through the contextual menu that will appear. In case any of the requirements for creating a catch-all mailbox is not met, our system will let you know, but will not deactivate or replace anything automatically.
