A catch-all email 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 an email to inof@domain.com, it will still be received in the catch-all mailbox that you have configured. Only one single mailbox per domain can have this feature enabled and thus you will never miss emails because the other side has an out-of-date email address or has made a typo. The disadvantage of configuring a catch-all mailbox is that you may start receiving plenty of spam emails, but this problem can be rectified using an anti-spam filtering solution. It is also crucial to bear in mind that a mailbox with an active catch-all feature cannot redirect inbound email messages to a 3rd-party address.

Catch-all Emails in Hosting

In case you’ve got a Linux hosting with our company and you want to enable the catch-all functionality for a given email mailbox that you have in your web hosting account, it’ll take literally only one single click in the Email Manager section of your Hepsia hosting Control Panel to accomplish that. A catch-all button is available on the right side of each email address that you have created under any domain hosted in your account. You can pick one address per domain name by clicking on the corresponding button. This will activate the feature right away, so all email messages sent to mistyped addresses will be re-sent there. Clicking the button once more will disable the catch-all feature. If you’ve got enabled email forwarding, our system will display a cautionary note and you will not be able to enable the catch-all feature till you delete the forwarding or you can simply pick another mailbox to be the catch-all one.

Catch-all Emails in Semi-dedicated Hosting

You will be able to create a catch-all email address with no more than a click if you’ve got a Linux semi-dedicated hosting with our company and your email messages are handled by our cloud hosting platform. All the mailboxes that you set up using any domain hosted in the semi-dedicated hosting account will be shown in the Hepsia hosting Control Panel’s Email Manager section. Each of them will have a tiny "Catch-all" icon on its right-hand side, so all it will take to enable this feature will be to click on that icon. In the very same way you will be able to disable the feature, if you no longer need it. Our system will inform you in case you are attempting to activate a second catch-all email address for a specific domain name or in case there is active email forwarding, but it’ll never disable or alter anything automatically and without your consent.
