A catch-all e-mailbox is one that collects all the emails sent to inactive email addresses. For example, if your email 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per domain name can have this feature activated and in this way you’ll never miss emails because the other side has an outdated email address or has made a typo. The negative aspect of having a catch-all mailbox is that you may begin receiving lots of unsolicited emails, but this issue can be fixed using anti-spam filtering software. It is also vital to remember that a mailbox with an active catch-all functionality cannot redirect incoming email messages to a third-party address.

Catch-all Emails in Cloud Website Hosting

Creating a catch-all mailbox will be quite easy in case you’ve got a Linux cloud website hosting plan with our company. You can activate this feature through our advanced, yet user-friendly Email Manager tool, which is included in the Hepsia Control Panel, via which you’ll manage the shared web hosting account itself. You will find all the mailboxes that you have created shown in alphabetical order and to the right of each of them there will be a small "Catch-all" icon, which will instantaneously show you if a certain mailbox stores all the emails for a certain domain name or not. With one single click on the icon you can activate or deactivate this feature whenever you want. In case there is activated email forwarding or in case another mailbox has already been set up as a catch-all one for a certain domain name, you’ll get a warning from our system. The latter will not replace/deactivate anything automatically or without your permission.

Catch-all Emails in Semi-dedicated Servers

You will be able to configure a catch-all address with no more than one click in case you’ve got a Linux semi-dedicated plan with our company and your email messages are handled by our cloud web hosting platform. All the email addresses that you set up with any domain name hosted in your semi-dedicated account will be shown in the Hepsia hosting Control Panel’s Email Manager section. Each of them will have a small "Catch-all" icon on its right-hand side, so all it will take to activate the feature will be to click on that icon. In the very same manner you’ll be able to disable the feature, if you no longer need it. Our system will inform you if you’re attempting to activate a 2nd catch-all email address for a given domain name or if there is active email forwarding, but it’ll never alter or disable any feature automatically and without your approval.
