A catch-all mailbox is one that collects all the email messages sent to non-existent email addresses. For example, if your email address is info@domain.com, but someone misspells it and sends an email 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 mistake. The negative aspect of configuring a catch-all mailbox is that you may start receiving plenty of unsolicited messages, but this issue can be resolved by using an anti-spam protection solution. It is also essential to remember that a mailbox with an active catch-all feature cannot redirect inbound messages to a third-party address.

Catch-all Emails in Cloud Hosting

You’ll be able to configure a catch-all mailbox without any difficulty in case you’ve got a cloud hosting account with our company. The Email Manager tool in our in-house built Hepsia Control Panel is feature-rich, yet very easy to use, and it will allow you to enable different features, including the catch-all one, with only a couple of clicks of the mouse. All the email addresses that you’ve set up will be enumerated in alphabetical order in this section and to the right of each of them you will find a tiny "Catch-all" logo. Clicking on it once will activate this feature, clicking it twice will deactivate it. As you can have just one such mailbox per domain, our system will warn you if you’ve already got a different mailbox with this option enabled or if you have activated email forwarding.

Catch-all Emails in Semi-dedicated Servers

A catch-all address can be configured with a few clicks of the mouse in case you’ve got a semi-dedicated plan with us. The semi-dedicated account will be administered via our custom-created Hepsia Control Panel and you will be able to set up email addresses using any domain registered here. To activate the catch-all functionality for a mailbox, you will have to click on the symbol with the same name, which will be to the right of each mailbox. Disabling the feature can be done in the very same manner and will not require more than a click either. In case a catch-all mailbox has already been activated for a particular domain name, you’ll get a warning alert. The same goes if the mailbox that you wish to be a catch-all one has email forwarding activated, as our system will never edit or deactivate any feature automatically.
