A catch-all e-mailbox is one that collects all the messages sent to nonexistent addresses. For instance, if your address is info@domain.com, but someone miswrites it and sends an email to inof@domain.com, it will still be received in the catch-all mailbox that you have set up. Only one single mailbox per domain name can have this feature activated and in this way you’ll never miss emails because the other side has an outdated email address or has made a typographical error. The drawback of setting up a catch-all mailbox is that you may begin receiving a lot of unsolicited emails, but this issue can be solved by using an anti-spam protection solution. It is also vital to bear in mind that a mailbox with an active catch-all feature cannot forward inbound emails to a 3rd-party email address.

Catch-all Emails in Hosting

Configuring a catch-all mailbox will be incredibly easy if you’ve got a Linux hosting plan with our company. You can enable this option through our powerful, yet intuitive Email Manager tool, which is part of the Hepsia Control Panel, via which you’ll manage the account itself. You will find all the mailboxes that you’ve created listed in alphabetical order and on the right side of each one there will be a small "Catch-all" icon, which will quickly inform you if a certain mailbox gets all the messages for a given domain name or not. With one mouse click on the icon you can activate or deactivate this option at any time. In case there’s enabled email forwarding or if some other mailbox has already been set up as a catch-all one for a particular domain name, you’ll get a warning notice from our system. The latter won’t deactivate/replace anything automatically or without your permission.

Catch-all Emails in Semi-dedicated Servers

A catch-all address can be configured with a couple of clicks if you have a Linux semi-dedicated server with our company. The semi-dedicated account will be administered via our in-house developed Hepsia Control Panel and you’ll be able to set up email addresses using any domain hosted here. To enable the catch-all option for a certain mailbox, you will need to click on the icon with the same name, which will be next to each mailbox. Disabling this option can be done in the very same way and will not take more than a click either. If a catch-all mailbox has already been activated for a given domain name, you will receive a warning. The same is valid if the mailbox that you would like to be a catch-all one has email forwarding activated, as our system will never deactivate or change any feature automatically.
