A catch-all mailbox is one that captures all the emails sent to invalid email addresses. For instance, if your email address is info@domain.com, but someone misspells 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 mailbox per domain can have this feature activated and thus you will never miss emails because the other side has an obsolete email address or has made a mistake. The drawback of having a catch-all mailbox is that you may start receiving plenty of unsolicited emails, but this problem can be solved by using an anti-spam protection solution. It’s also crucial to know that a mailbox with an activated catch-all feature cannot redirect inbound emails to a 3rd-party email address.

Catch-all Emails in Cloud Web Hosting

In case you host a domain on our cloud web hosting platform and you have a cloud web hosting account, you will be able to enable the catch-all functionality for any e-mailbox that you create under the domain name. The Hepsia Control Panel’s Email Manager section includes quite a lot of functions, but it’s extremely intuitive, so setting up a catch-all mailbox takes just a single click of the mouse. All the email addresses that you have set up will be shown in this section in alphabetical order and you will just need to click the "Catch-all" button pertaining to the respective address. Our system will warn you if there’s already another catch-all mailbox activated for that domain or if the one that you’d like to be a catch-all mailbox has email forwarding enabled, so you can either deactivate the latter feature or pick a different mailbox. Deactivating the catch-all option is just as simple and requires yet another click on the same button.

Catch-all Emails in Semi-dedicated Hosting

You will be able to set up a catch-all address with no more than a click in case you’ve got a Linux semi-dedicated hosting with us and your email messages are handled by our cloud hosting platform. All the mailboxes that you create with any domain name hosted in your account will be enumerated in the Hepsia Control Panel’s Email Manager section. Each of them will have a small-size "Catch-all" icon on its right-hand side, so all it will take to activate this option will be to click on that icon. In the exact same fashion you will be able to disable the feature, if you don’t need it anymore. Our system will notify you if you are trying to enable a second catch-all address for a certain domain or in case there’s activated email forwarding, but it’ll never modify or deactivate anything automatically and without your approval.
