A catch-all email mailbox is one that collects all the emails sent to invalid email addresses. For example, if your email address is info@domain.com, but somebody miswrites 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 single mailbox per domain name can have this feature activated and thus you’ll never miss emails because the other party has an outdated email address or has made a spelling mistake. The downside of configuring a catch-all mailbox is that you may start receiving plenty of unsolicited messages, but this issue can be rectified using an anti-spam protection solution. It is also crucial to keep in mind that a mailbox with an enabled catch-all feature cannot forward inbound messages to a 3rd-party mailbox.

Catch-all Emails in Shared Web Hosting

Configuring a catch-all email mailbox will be remarkably easy if you have a shared web hosting plan with our company. You can enable this feature through our advanced, yet easy-to-work-with Email Manager, which is included in the Hepsia Control Panel, via which you will administer the account itself. You’ll see all the email addresses that you have set up displayed in alphabetical order and to the right of each of them there will be a mini "Catch-all" icon, which will instantly reveal to you whether a particular mailbox gets all the emails for a certain domain name or not. With a single click on the icon you can enable or disable the feature whenever you like. If there’s enabled email forwarding or in case another mailbox has already been configured as a catch-all one for a given domain, you’ll receive a warning notice from our system. The latter won’t replace/deactivate anything automatically or without your permission.

Catch-all Emails in Semi-dedicated Servers

You will be able to set up a catch-all address with no more than one click if you have a semi-dedicated plan with us and your emails are handled by our cloud web hosting platform. All the email addresses that you set up using any domain hosted in the account will be shown in the Email Manager section of your Hepsia hosting Control Panel. Each of them will have a mini "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 same way you’ll be able to remove the feature, in case you don’t need it any longer. Our system will warn you if you’re attempting to enable a second catch-all address for a particular domain name or if there is active email forwarding, but it’ll never disable or change anything automatically or without your consent.
