A catch-all mailbox is one that captures all the messages sent to non-existent email addresses. For example, if your email address is info@domain.com, but someone mistypes it and sends an email message to inof@domain.com, it will still be received in the catch-all mailbox that you have configured. Just one single mailbox per domain name can have this feature enabled and in this way you will never miss messages because the other side has an outdated email address or has made a mistake. The downside of using a catch-all mailbox is that you may begin receiving plenty of unsolicited bulk messages, but this problem can be rectified using anti-spam protection software. It’s also vital to keep in mind that a mailbox with an active catch-all feature cannot forward incoming email messages to a 3rd-party mailbox.

Catch-all Emails in Website Hosting

In case you have a Linux website hosting package with us and you would like to enable the catch-all option for a certain mailbox that you have in the account, it will take literally just a click in the Email Manager section of your Hepsia Control Panel to achieve that. A catch-all button is available next to each email address that you have created under any domain hosted in your account. You can pick one email address per domain name by clicking the respective button. This will enable the feature instantly, so all messages sent to misspelled addresses will be re-sent there. Clicking on the button once more will deactivate the catch-all feature. In case you have enabled email forwarding, our system will display a warning note and you won’t be able to enable the catch-all feature unless you deactivate the forwarding or you can simply choose a different mailbox to be the catch-all one.

Catch-all Emails in Semi-dedicated Hosting

You’ll be able to create a catch-all email address with no more than one click if you’ve got a Linux semi-dedicated package with our company and your emails are handled by our cloud platform. All the mailboxes that you set up using any domain name hosted in the semi-dedicated hosting account will be displayed in the Hepsia Control Panel’s Email Manager section. Each of them will have a mini "Catch-all" icon on its right-hand side, so all it will take to enable this feature will be to click on that icon. In the very same fashion you will be able to turn off the feature, in case you do not need it anymore. Our system will let you know if you are trying to enable a second catch-all address for a particular domain or in case there’s activated email forwarding, but it’ll never disable or modify anything automatically or without your approval.
