A catch-all mailbox is one that captures all the emails sent to invalid email addresses. For example, if your address is info@domain.com, but somebody miswrites it and sends an email to inof@domain.com, it will still be received in the catch-all mailbox that you have configured. Just one mailbox per domain name can have this feature activated and in this way you’ll never miss messages because the other side has an outdated email address or has made a typo. The drawback of configuring a catch-all mailbox is that you may start receiving plenty of unsolicited email messages, but this issue can be fixed by using an anti-spam protection solution. It’s also essential to remember that a mailbox with an active catch-all feature cannot forward incoming emails to a 3rd-party address.

Catch-all Emails in Cloud Website Hosting

In case you host a domain on our cloud web hosting platform and you’ve got a cloud website hosting account, you’ll be able to enable the catch-all functionality for any email mailbox that you set up under the domain name. The Hepsia hosting Control Panel’s Email Manager section comes with quite a lot of features, but it is amazingly simple to work with, so configuring a catch-all mailbox requires only one mouse click. All the email addresses that you have created will be enumerated in this section alphabetically and you’ll only have to click on the "Catch-all" button for the respective email address. Our system will notify you if there is already another catch-all mailbox activated for that domain or if the one that you’d like to be a catch-all mailbox has email forwarding activated, so you can either turn off the latter feature or select some other mailbox. Disabling the catch-all feature is just as easy and takes one more click on the very same button.

Catch-all Emails in Semi-dedicated Servers

The catch-all option can be activated without effort if you have a semi-dedicated server plan with us. All the email addresses that you’ve set up with the domain names hosted in the account will be enumerated in the Email Manager section of your Hepsia hosting Control Panel and you’ll see a tiny sign handily situated right next to each one. With only one single click, you can enable or disable the catch-all option for any mailbox of your choosing provided that there isn't another mailbox under the same domain with this option already enabled and there isn't enabled email forwarding. Alternatively, you can right-click on an email address and activate this feature using the context menu that will appear. In case any of the requirements for setting up a catch-all mailbox is not satisfied, our system will notify you, but will not replace or disable anything automatically.
