A catch-all e-mailbox is one that collects all the email messages sent to inactive addresses. For example, if your address is info@domain.com, but somebody miswrites it and sends an email message to inof@domain.com, it will still be received in the catch-all mailbox that you have set up. Only one single mailbox per domain can have this feature activated and thus you will never miss messages because the other party has an out-of-date address or has made a spelling mistake. The downside of configuring a catch-all mailbox is that you may start receiving a lot of unsolicited bulk emails, but this issue can be rectified by using an anti-spam protection solution. It’s also crucial to bear in mind that a mailbox with an activated catch-all functionality cannot forward inbound emails to a 3rd-party mailbox.

Catch-all Emails in Hosting

If you’ve got a Linux hosting with us and you’d like to enable the catch-all option for a certain e-mailbox that you’ve got in your hosting account, it’ll take literally just a click of the mouse in the Email Manager section of your Hepsia Control Panel to do that. A catch-all button is available on the right-hand side of each email address that you have set up under any domain name registered in your account. You can select one single address per domain name by clicking on the respective button. This will enable the feature momentarily, so all messages sent to mistyped addresses will be received there. Clicking the button again will disable the catch-all feature. If you have enabled email forwarding, our system will show a cautionary message and you will not be able to enable 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 Hosting

A catch-all email address can be configured with a couple of mouse clicks in case you have a Linux semi-dedicated hosting with our company. The hosting account will be administered via our in-house created Hepsia Control Panel and you will be able to set up mailboxes with any domain hosted there. To activate the catch-all option for a mailbox, you’ll need to click the button with the same name, which will be next to each email address. Deactivating the feature can be accomplished in the exact same fashion and will not take more than a click either. In case the catch-all feature has already been enabled for a particular domain name, you will get a warning text message. The same goes if the mailbox that you wish to be a catch-all one has email forwarding enabled, as our system will never disable or alter anything automatically.
