A catch-all e-mailbox is one that collects all the messages sent to nonexistent email addresses. For instance, if your email address is info@domain.com, but somebody miswrites it and sends a message to inof@domain.com, it will still be received in the catch-all mailbox that you have set up. Only one mailbox per domain name can have this feature activated and thus you will never miss messages because the other party has an obsolete address or has made a mistake. The negative aspect of having a catch-all mailbox is that you may start receiving a lot of spam emails, but this issue can be fixed using anti-spam filtering software. It is also vital to keep in mind that a mailbox with an enabled catch-all functionality cannot redirect inbound emails to a 3rd-party email address.

Catch-all Emails in Shared Hosting

If you’ve got a shared hosting plan with our company and you want to enable the catch-all functionality for a certain email mailbox that you have in your hosting account, it’ll take literally just a click in the Email Manager section of your Hepsia Control Panel to achieve that. A catch-all button is available to the right of each and every email address that you have created under any domain registered in the account. You can select one single email address per domain by clicking on the respective button. This will activate the feature momentarily, so all emails sent to mistyped addresses will be received there. Clicking on the button again will disable the catch-all feature. In case you’ve got enabled email forwarding, our system will exhibit a warning message and you won’t be able to activate the catch-all feature until you remove 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-developed Hepsia Control Panel that is included with each semi-dedicated server plan that we offer will permit you to configure a catch-all mailbox without any difficulty even if you do not have much email/web hosting experience. All it takes to accomplish that is to click the catch-all icon, which will be on the right side of each mailbox that you have created using your domains in the hosting Control Panel’s Email Manager section. As you can have just one mailbox with this feature per domain, our system will inform you if you’ve already configured a different catch-all mailbox or if the one that you wish to use has email forwarding activated. If you decide that you do not need this feature any longer, you can deactivate it by clicking again on the same icon. The Email Manager will also allow you to view your catch-all mailboxes at a glance.
