A catch-all e-mailbox is one that collects all the emails sent to non-existent 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 set up. Just one mailbox per domain can have this feature enabled and in this way you’ll never miss emails because the other party has an obsolete email address or has made a typo. The downside of having a catch-all mailbox is that you may begin receiving a lot of spam messages, but this problem can be fixed by using an anti-spam filtering solution. It is also crucial to remember that a mailbox with an activated catch-all functionality cannot redirect inbound emails to a 3rd-party email address.

Catch-all Emails in Web Hosting

In case you host a domain name on our cloud platform and you have a web hosting account, you’ll be able to activate the catch-all functionality for any mailbox that you create under the domain. The Hepsia Control Panel’s Email Manager section offers quite a lot of features, but it is incredibly easy to use, so configuring a catch-all mailbox requires only one click. All the email addresses that you have set up will be listed in this section in alphabetical order and you will simply need to click on the "Catch-all" button associated with the given email address. Our system will warn you if there is already another catch-all mailbox enabled for that domain name 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 choose some other mailbox. Disabling the catch-all feature is just as easy and requires one more click on the same button.

Catch-all Emails in Semi-dedicated Hosting

A catch-all email address can be configured with a few clicks of the mouse in case you’ve got a semi-dedicated hosting with our company. The semi-dedicated account will be administered via our in-house created Hepsia hosting Control Panel and you’ll be able to set up email addresses using any domain name hosted here. To enable the catch-all feature for a mailbox, you will need to click on the button with the same name, which will be next to each mailbox. Deactivating the feature can be done in the exact same way and will not require more than a click either. If the catch-all option has already been enabled for a certain domain, you will receive a warning notification. The same is valid if the mailbox that you want to be a catch-all one has email forwarding enabled, as our system will never deactivate or replace any feature automatically.
