A catch-all mailbox is one that collects all the messages sent to nonexistent email addresses. For instance, if your 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. Just one mailbox per domain name can have this feature enabled and in this way you will never miss emails because the other party has an obsolete address or has made a spelling error. The negative aspect of setting up a catch-all mailbox is that you may start receiving plenty of spam email messages, but this issue can be resolved by using anti-spam protection software. It’s also crucial to know that a mailbox with an activated catch-all functionality cannot redirect incoming emails to a 3rd-party mailbox.

Catch-all Emails in Shared Website Hosting

Creating a catch-all e-mailbox will be remarkably easy if you’ve got a shared website hosting plan with us. You can enable the feature through our advanced, albeit simple-to-use Email Manager tool, which is included in the Hepsia hosting Control Panel, via which you’ll administer the shared hosting account itself. You’ll see all the mailboxes that you’ve set up shown alphabetically and to the right of each one of them there will be a mini "Catch-all" icon, which will instantaneously tell you whether a certain mailbox gets all the emails associated with a given domain name or not. With a single mouse click on the icon you can enable or disable this feature whenever you wish. If there is enabled email forwarding or in case a different mailbox has already been set up as a catch-all one for a particular domain name, you’ll receive a warning from our system. The latter won’t replace/deactivate anything automatically and without your consent.

Catch-all Emails in Semi-dedicated Servers

The in-house built Hepsia hosting Control Panel that is included with each semi-dedicated server plan that we are offering will permit you to set up a catch-all e-mailbox easily even if you do not have much email/web hosting experience. All it takes to accomplish that is to click the catch-all icon, which will be on the right side of each email address that you have set up using your domains in the Email Manager section of the hosting Control Panel. As you can have just one single mailbox with this feature per domain, our system will notify you if you’ve already created another catch-all mailbox or if the one that you’d like to use has email forwarding activated. If you decide that you don’t want this feature anymore, you can turn it off by clicking again on the same icon. The Email Manager section will also permit you to view your catch-all mailboxes at a glance.
