A catch-all e-mailbox is one that captures all the email messages sent to invalid addresses. For example, if your email address is info@domain.com, but someone misspells it and sends an email 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per domain can have this feature enabled and in this way you will never miss messages because the other party has an outdated address or has made a spelling error. The downside of having a catch-all mailbox is that you may begin receiving plenty of unsolicited bulk emails, but this issue can be fixed using anti-spam protection software. It is also important to know that a mailbox with an active catch-all functionality cannot forward incoming messages to a third-party address.

Catch-all Emails in Cloud Web Hosting

If you host a domain name on our cloud web hosting platform and you’ve got a cloud web hosting account, you’ll be able to enable the catch-all functionality for any e-mailbox that you create under the domain name. The Email Manager section of the Hepsia Control Panel offers quite a few features, but it’s unbelievably user-friendly, so setting up a catch-all mailbox takes just one click. All the email addresses that you’ve created will be displayed in this section alphabetically and you will only need to click the "Catch-all" button for the specific email address. Our system will alert you if there’s already another catch-all mailbox enabled for that domain or if the one that you want to be a catch-all mailbox has email forwarding enabled, so you can either deactivate the latter feature or select a different mailbox. Deactivating the catch-all option is just as simple and takes yet another click on the same button.

Catch-all Emails in Semi-dedicated Hosting

You will be able to create a catch-all address with no more than one click if you have a semi-dedicated hosting service with us and your emails are handled by our cloud platform. All the email addresses that you create using any domain name hosted in the semi-dedicated account will be shown in the Hepsia hosting Control Panel’s Email Manager section. Each of them will have a small-size "Catch-all" icon on its right-hand side, so all it will take to activate the feature will be to click on that icon. In the exact same fashion you will be able to remove the feature, if you do not need it any longer. Our system will warn you if you’re attempting to activate a second catch-all mailbox for a given domain or in case there’s active email forwarding, but it’ll never alter or deactivate anything automatically and without your approval.
