A catch-all e-mailbox is one that captures all the messages sent to nonexistent addresses. For example, if your email address is info@domain.com, but somebody mistypes it and sends a message to inof@domain.com, it will still be received in the catch-all mailbox that you have created. Only one mailbox per domain can have this feature activated and in this way you will never miss emails because the other party has an outdated address or has made a mistake. The disadvantage of creating a catch-all mailbox is that you may start receiving lots of junk email messages, but this issue can be solved using an anti-spam protection solution. It’s also vital to keep in mind that a mailbox with an activated catch-all feature cannot redirect inbound messages to a 3rd-party mailbox.

Catch-all Emails in Shared Web Hosting

You will be able to configure a catch-all e-mailbox without any difficulty in case you have a shared web hosting plan with us. The Email Manager tool in our in-house created Hepsia Control Panel is full-featured, yet unbelievably simple to use, and it will allow you to enable different options, including the catch-all one, with just a few clicks of the mouse. All the mailboxes that you have set up will be listed alphabetically in this section and next to each one you’ll notice a small-size "Catch-all" sign. Clicking it once will enable the feature, clicking it twice will disable it. Since you can have only one such catch-all mailbox per domain, our system will alert you if you already have a different one with this option activated or if you have enabled email forwarding.

Catch-all Emails in Semi-dedicated Servers

You’ll be able to set up a catch-all address with no more than a click if you’ve got a semi-dedicated server with our company and your email messages are handled by our cloud platform. All the email addresses that you create with any domain hosted in your account will be displayed in the Hepsia hosting Control Panel’s Email Manager section. Each of them will have a mini "Catch-all" icon on its right-hand side, so all it will take to enable this option will be to click that icon. In the same way you’ll be able to turn off the feature, if you do not need it anymore. Our system will inform you if you’re trying to activate a 2nd catch-all address for a certain domain name or if there is active email forwarding, but it’ll never modify or disable any feature automatically or without your consent.
