A catch-all e-mailbox is one that captures all the messages sent to inactive email addresses. For example, if your email address is info@domain.com, but someone misspells it and sends a message to inof@domain.com, it will still be received in the catch-all mailbox that you have set up. Only one mailbox per domain name can have this feature activated and in this way you will never miss messages because the other party has an obsolete address or has made a spelling mistake. The negative aspect of setting up a catch-all mailbox is that you may start receiving lots of spam email messages, but this issue can be resolved by using anti-spam protection software. It is also crucial to know that a mailbox with an active catch-all functionality cannot forward incoming emails to a 3rd-party email address.

Catch-all Emails in Shared Website Hosting

Creating a catch-all e-mailbox will be exceptionally easy in case you’ve got a Linux shared website hosting plan with us. You can activate the feature through our powerful, yet easy-to-use Email Manager tool, which is built into the Hepsia hosting Control Panel, via which you’ll manage the shared hosting account itself. You’ll see all the mailboxes that you have created listed alphabetically and on the right-hand side of each of them there will be a tiny "Catch-all" icon, which will quickly tell you if a particular mailbox stores all the messages for a certain domain name or not. With one single mouse click on the icon you can enable or disable this feature at any moment. If there is enabled email forwarding or if some other mailbox has already been configured as a catch-all one for a certain domain, you’ll get an alert from our system. The latter will not replace/deactivate anything automatically and without your permission.

Catch-all Emails in Semi-dedicated Servers

You’ll be able to create a catch-all email address with no more than a click in case you’ve got a semi-dedicated server with our company and your email messages are handled by our cloud web hosting platform. All the email addresses that you set up with any domain name hosted in the semi-dedicated account will be enumerated in the Hepsia Control Panel’s Email Manager section. Each of them will have a tiny "Catch-all" icon next to it, so all it will take to enable this functionality will be to click that icon. In the very same manner you will be able to deactivate the feature, if you don’t need it any longer. Our system will let you know if you are attempting to activate a 2nd catch-all mailbox for a given domain name or in case there’s activated email forwarding, but it will never disable or modify anything automatically or without your consent.
