A catch-all mailbox is one that gathers all the email messages sent to invalid email addresses. For instance, 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 configured. Only one mailbox per domain can have this feature enabled and thus you’ll never miss emails because the other party has an outdated address or has made a typo. The disadvantage of creating a catch-all mailbox is that you may start receiving plenty of unsolicited emails, but this problem can be resolved using anti-spam filtering software. It is also essential to know that a mailbox with an enabled catch-all feature cannot forward incoming messages to a third-party address.

Catch-all Emails in Shared Hosting

Creating a catch-all e-mailbox will be stunningly easy in case you’ve got a Linux shared hosting service with our company. You can activate this option through our powerful, yet easy-to-use Email Manager tool, which is an integral part of the Hepsia hosting Control Panel, via which you will manage the shared hosting account itself. You’ll see all the mailboxes that you have created enumerated in alphabetical order and on the right-hand side of each of them there will be a small "Catch-all" icon, which will instantly notify you whether a specific mailbox stores all the email messages pertaining to a given domain or not. With a single click on the icon you can enable or disable this feature at any moment. If there’s active email forwarding or if another mailbox has already been configured as a catch-all one for a certain domain name, you will receive a warning message from our system. The latter won’t deactivate/replace anything automatically and without your consent.

Catch-all Emails in Semi-dedicated Servers

The catch-all functionality can be activated without effort in case you’ve got a semi-dedicated server account with our company. All the email addresses that you’ve created with the domains hosted in the semi-dedicated server account will be listed in the Hepsia Control Panel’s Email Manager section and you’ll see a tiny icon handily situated right next to each one of them. With only one single click of the mouse, you can enable or disable the catch-all option for any mailbox of your preference as long as there isn't another mailbox under the same domain with this option already activated and there isn't activated email forwarding. Alternatively, you can right-click on a mailbox and enable this option through the menu that will appear. If any of the conditions for configuring a catch-all mailbox is not fulfilled, our system will let you know, but will not deactivate or replace anything automatically.
