A catch-all mailbox is one that gathers all the messages sent to inactive email addresses. For example, if your email address is info@domain.com, but someone mistypes it and sends an email 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domain name can have this feature activated and in this way you will never miss emails because the other side has an outdated email address or has made a typographical error. The downside of configuring a catch-all mailbox is that you may start receiving lots of junk email messages, but this problem can be resolved by using anti-spam filtering software. It’s also essential to remember that a mailbox with an enabled catch-all feature cannot forward inbound messages to a third-party mailbox.

Catch-all Emails in Cloud Website Hosting

Configuring a catch-all e-mailbox will be amazingly easy if you’ve got a Linux cloud website hosting with us. You can activate the feature through our advanced, albeit simple-to-use Email Manager tool, which is integrated into the Hepsia hosting Control Panel, via which you’ll administer the shared hosting account itself. You’ll see all the email addresses that you’ve set up shown in alphabetical order and to the right of each one of them there will be a mini "Catch-all" icon, which will instantaneously let you know whether a particular mailbox receives all the emails associated with a certain domain name or not. With one single click on the icon you can enable or disable the feature whenever you want. In case there is enabled email forwarding or if some other mailbox has already been set up as a catch-all one for a certain domain, you will receive a warning notification from our system. The latter will not disable/replace anything automatically and without your consent.

Catch-all Emails in Semi-dedicated Servers

The custom-developed Hepsia Control Panel that is included with each semi-dedicated server package that we offer will permit you to configure a catch-all e-mailbox without any difficulties even in case you do not have much web/email hosting experience. All it takes to accomplish that is to click on the catch-all icon, which will be to the right of each mailbox that you’ve created with your domains in the Email Manager section of the Control Panel. As you can have just one mailbox with this feature per domain, our system will let you know if you have already created another catch-all mailbox or if the one that you want to use has email forwarding activated. In case you reach the decision that you don’t need the feature any longer, you can disable it by clicking again on the exact same icon. The Email Manager will also permit you to view your catch-all mailboxes at a glance.
