A catch-all mailbox is one that gathers all the emails sent to invalid email addresses. For example, if your address is info@domain.com, but somebody misspells 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per domain can have this feature enabled and in this way you will never miss messages because the other party has an outdated email address or has made a typographical error. The disadvantage of having a catch-all mailbox is that you may begin receiving plenty of spam messages, but this problem can be solved by using anti-spam protection software. It is also crucial to remember that a mailbox with an activated catch-all functionality cannot redirect inbound email messages to a third-party email address.

Catch-all Emails in Cloud Hosting

Setting up a catch-all email mailbox will be astonishingly easy if you’ve got a Linux cloud hosting with our company. You can activate the feature through our powerful, albeit simple-to-use Email Manager tool, which is part of the Hepsia hosting Control Panel, via which you will administer the account itself. You’ll see all the email addresses that you’ve created enumerated in alphabetical order and on the right-hand side of each one there will be a tiny "Catch-all" icon, which will immediately tell you whether a certain mailbox receives all the emails for a given domain or not. With a single click on the icon you can enable or disable this feature at any time. If there is active email forwarding or if some other mailbox has already been configured as a catch-all one for a particular domain, you will get a warning from our system. The latter will not deactivate/replace anything automatically and without your permission.

Catch-all Emails in Semi-dedicated Hosting

You’ll be able to create a catch-all address with no more than one click if you have a Linux semi-dedicated hosting with our company and your email messages are handled by our cloud platform. All the email addresses that you create with any domain name hosted in your account will be shown in the Email Manager section of your Hepsia Control Panel. Each of them will have a mini "Catch-all" icon next to it, so all it will take to enable this feature will be to click that icon. In the same fashion you’ll be able to disable the feature, in case you do not need it anymore. Our system will warn you if you’re attempting to enable a second catch-all mailbox for a given domain or in case there is enabled email forwarding, but it will never deactivate or modify anything automatically and without your approval.
