A catch-all mailbox is one that collects all the email messages sent to nonexistent email addresses. For example, if your email address is info@domain.com, but somebody miswrites it and sends an email to inof@domain.com, it will still be received in the catch-all mailbox that you have configured. Only one mailbox per domain name can have this feature activated and in this way you will never miss messages because the other side has an obsolete address or has made a spelling mistake. The downside of setting up a catch-all mailbox is that you may start receiving plenty of spam, but this issue can be fixed using an anti-spam filtering solution. It is also vital to keep in mind that a mailbox with an activated catch-all functionality cannot redirect inbound email messages to a 3rd-party email address.

Catch-all Emails in Cloud Web Hosting

In case you’ve got a cloud web hosting plan with us and you wish to activate the catch-all functionality for a certain email mailbox that you have in your hosting account, it will take literally only one single mouse click in the Email Manager section of your Hepsia Control Panel to accomplish that. A catch-all button is available next to each and every email address that you have created under any domain name registered in your account. You can choose one single email address per domain name by clicking on the respective button. This will activate the feature momentarily, so all emails sent to mistyped addresses will be delivered there. Clicking the button once again will deactivate the catch-all feature. If you have active email forwarding, our system will exhibit a cautionary message and you won’t be able to enable the catch-all feature till you delete the forwarding or you can simply choose another mailbox to be the catch-all one.

Catch-all Emails in Semi-dedicated Servers

You’ll be able to create a catch-all address with no more than a click in case you have a semi-dedicated plan with us and your email messages are handled by our cloud platform. All the email addresses that you set up using any domain hosted in your semi-dedicated hosting account will be displayed in the Email Manager section of your Hepsia Control Panel. Each of them will have a tiny "Catch-all" icon on its right-hand side, so all it will take to enable this functionality will be to click that icon. In the very same fashion you’ll be able to disable the feature, in case you no longer need it. Our system will let you know if you are attempting to enable a 2nd catch-all mailbox for a specific domain or if there is activated email forwarding, but it will never deactivate or alter anything automatically or without your approval.
