A catch-all email mailbox is one that captures all the email messages sent to invalid email addresses. For instance, if your 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 configured. Only one single mailbox per domain name can have this feature enabled and in this way you’ll never miss messages because the other side has an outdated email address or has made a mistake. The negative aspect of configuring a catch-all mailbox is that you may begin receiving plenty of unsolicited messages, but this issue can be rectified using anti-spam protection software. It is also vital to keep in mind that a mailbox with an activated catch-all feature cannot redirect inbound messages to a third-party email address.

Catch-all Emails in Shared Website Hosting

You’ll be able to set up a catch-all mailbox without effort if you’ve got a shared website hosting account with our company. The Email Manager in our custom-created Hepsia Control Panel is fully featured, yet unbelievably intuitive, and it will allow you to activate different features, including the catch-all one, with just a couple of mouse clicks. All the mailboxes that you’ve set up will be enumerated in alphabetical order in this section and to the right of each of them you’ll find a mini "Catch-all" icon. Clicking on it once will enable the feature, clicking on it twice will deactivate it. Since you can have only one such mailbox per domain, our system will inform you if you’ve already got a different mailbox with this option activated or if you have enabled email forwarding.

Catch-all Emails in Semi-dedicated Servers

The catch-all feature can be activated without difficulty if you’ve got a semi-dedicated server plan with our company. All the email addresses that you’ve created with the domain names hosted in your account will be shown in the Email Manager section of your Hepsia Control Panel and you will find a small-size icon handily situated directly next to each one of them. With only a single click of the mouse, you can activate or deactivate the catch-all option for any mailbox of your preference on the condition that there isn't another mailbox under that same domain name with the option already activated and there isn't active email forwarding. Alternatively, you can right-click on a mailbox and enable the feature through the contextual menu that will come into view. If any of the conditions for setting up a catch-all mailbox is not satisfied, our system will inform you, but will not replace or deactivate anything automatically.
