A catch-all mailbox is one that captures all the email messages sent to invalid addresses. For example, if your address is info@domain.com, but someone miswrites it and sends a message to inof@domain.com, it will still be received in the catch-all mailbox that you have created. Just one mailbox per domain name can have this feature enabled and thus you will never miss messages because the other party has an outdated email address or has made a spelling error. The drawback of using a catch-all mailbox is that you may start receiving lots of spam emails, but this issue can be resolved by using an anti-spam protection solution. It’s also important to keep in mind that a mailbox with an activated catch-all functionality cannot forward incoming email messages to a 3rd-party email address.

Catch-all Emails in Web Hosting

Creating a catch-all email mailbox will be quite easy if you have a Linux web hosting package with our company. You can activate the feature through our powerful, albeit simple-to-work-with Email Manager, which is integrated into the Hepsia hosting Control Panel, via which you’ll administer your account. You’ll see all the mailboxes that you’ve created enumerated in alphabetical order and to the right of each one there will be a small-size "Catch-all" icon, which will quickly reveal to you if a particular mailbox stores all the emails for a certain domain name or not. With one mouse click on the icon you can activate or deactivate this option whenever you wish. If there is activated email forwarding or in case another mailbox has already been set up as a catch-all one for a given domain, you will receive a notification from our system. The latter will not disable/replace anything automatically or without your permission.

Catch-all Emails in Semi-dedicated Hosting

The custom Hepsia Control Panel that is included with every semi-dedicated server package that we’re offering will permit you to create a catch-all e-mailbox effortlessly even if you do not have much email/web hosting experience. All you need to do to accomplish that is click on the catch-all icon, which will be next to each email address that you’ve created using your domains in the Email Manager section of the hosting Control Panel. Since you can have just one mailbox with this feature per domain, our system will warn you if you have already configured a different catch-all mailbox or if the one that you want to use has email forwarding activated. In case you decide that you don’t need this feature anymore, you can turn it off by clicking again on the very same icon. The Email Manager will also permit you to see your catch-all mailboxes at a glance.
