A catch-all e-mailbox is one that gathers all the emails sent to nonexistent email addresses. For instance, if your address is info@domain.com, but someone misspells 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per domain can have this feature activated and in this way you’ll never miss emails because the other side has an out-of-date email address or has made a spelling error. The negative aspect of setting up a catch-all mailbox is that you may start receiving a lot of unsolicited bulk emails, but this issue can be fixed using an anti-spam filtering solution. It is also crucial to keep in mind that a mailbox with an activated catch-all functionality cannot forward incoming emails to a third-party mailbox.

Catch-all Emails in Cloud Hosting

If you’ve got a cloud hosting service with our company and you’d like to enable the catch-all option for a particular email mailbox that you have in the account, it will take literally just one mouse 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 set up under any domain name registered in your account. You can pick one email address per domain name by clicking on the respective button. This will activate the feature instantaneously, so all messages sent to misspelled addresses will be received there. Clicking on the button once again will deactivate the catch-all feature. In case you have activated email forwarding, our system will display a cautionary notice and you won’t be able to enable the catch-all feature till you disable the forwarding or you can simply pick some other mailbox to be the catch-all one.

Catch-all Emails in Semi-dedicated Servers

A catch-all address can be set up with a couple of clicks if you’ve got a semi-dedicated hosting service with our company. The semi-dedicated hosting account will be managed via our in-house developed Hepsia Control Panel and you’ll be able to set up mailboxes with any domain registered there. To activate the catch-all feature for a given mailbox, you will have to click the sign with the same name, which will be to the right of each mailbox. Disabling the feature can be done in the same way and will not require more than a click either. In case the catch-all feature has already been activated for a particular domain name, you’ll receive a warning message. The same goes if the mailbox that you would like to be a catch-all one has email forwarding activated, as our system will never modify or deactivate anything automatically.
