A catch-all mailbox is one that gathers all the messages sent to invalid addresses. For example, if your address is info@domain.com, but someone miswrites it and sends an email to inof@domain.com, it will still be received in the catch-all mailbox that you have created. Only one single mailbox per domain name can have this feature enabled and thus you will never miss emails because the other party has an outdated email address or has made a typographical error. The disadvantage of configuring a catch-all mailbox is that you may start receiving lots of spam emails, but this issue can be rectified by using anti-spam protection software. It’s also vital to keep in mind that a mailbox with an activated catch-all functionality cannot forward incoming emails to a 3rd-party mailbox.

Catch-all Emails in Website Hosting

In case you’ve got a Linux website hosting package with our company and you’d like to activate the catch-all feature for a given email mailbox that you have in the hosting account, it will take literally just a single click of the mouse in the Email Manager section of your Hepsia hosting Control Panel to accomplish that. A catch-all button is available to the right of each email address that you have created under any domain name hosted in your account. You can pick one email address per domain by clicking the respective button. This will enable the feature instantaneously, so all emails sent to mistyped email addresses will be delivered there. Clicking on the button once again will turn off the catch-all feature. If you have activated email forwarding, our system will exhibit a warning message and you won’t be able to enable the catch-all feature until you disable the forwarding or you can simply choose some other mailbox to be the catch-all one.

Catch-all Emails in Semi-dedicated Hosting

The catch-all feature can be activated without any difficulty in case you’ve got a semi-dedicated server plan with our company. All the email addresses that you’ve set up with the domain names hosted in your semi-dedicated server account will be listed in the Email Manager section of your Hepsia Control Panel and you will notice a small-size sign handily located directly next to each one of them. With just one single click, you can activate or deactivate the catch-all option for any mailbox of your preference provided that there isn't another mailbox under the same domain name with this option already activated and there isn't enabled email forwarding. Instead, you can right-click on a mailbox and activate this option through the menu that will pop up. In case any of the requirements for setting up a catch-all mailbox is not fulfilled, our system will notify you, but will not deactivate or replace anything automatically.
