A catch-all mailbox is one that captures all the messages sent to nonexistent addresses. For instance, if your email address is info@domain.com, but somebody misspells it and sends an email to inof@domain.com, it will still be received in the catch-all mailbox that you have configured. Just one single mailbox per domain can have this feature enabled and in this way you’ll never miss emails because the other party has an outdated address or has made a mistake. The drawback of creating a catch-all mailbox is that you may begin receiving a lot of unsolicited bulk emails, but this problem can be fixed using anti-spam filtering software. It is also important to bear in mind that a mailbox with an activated catch-all feature cannot redirect incoming emails to a 3rd-party email address.

Catch-all Emails in Shared Hosting

Creating a catch-all email mailbox will be quite easy in case you have a Linux shared hosting with us. You can enable the feature through our powerful, albeit simple-to-use Email Manager, which is an integral part of the Hepsia Control Panel, via which you will manage your shared web hosting account. You will find all the mailboxes that you’ve created displayed in alphabetical order and on the right side of each of them there will be a small-size "Catch-all" icon, which will instantaneously notify you whether a certain mailbox gets all the emails associated with a given domain name or not. With one click on the icon you can enable or disable the feature whenever you like. If there’s enabled email forwarding or in case some other mailbox has already been set up as a catch-all one for a specific domain name, you will receive a warning text message from our system. The latter won’t disable/replace anything automatically and without your permission.

Catch-all Emails in Semi-dedicated Hosting

You will be able to configure a catch-all address with no more than a click if you’ve got a Linux semi-dedicated hosting with us and your emails are handled by our cloud hosting platform. All the email addresses that you create with any domain hosted in the semi-dedicated account will be enumerated in the Email Manager section of your Hepsia hosting Control Panel. Each of them will have a mini "Catch-all" icon next to it, so all it will take to activate the feature will be to click that icon. In the same fashion you’ll be able to remove the feature, in case you no longer need it. Our system will warn you if you are trying to enable a 2nd catch-all address for a specific domain name or in case there’s enabled email forwarding, but it’ll never deactivate or change any feature automatically or without your permission.
