A catch-all email mailbox is one that collects all the emails sent to non-existent email addresses. For instance, if your 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 created. Only one mailbox per domain name can have this feature enabled and thus you’ll never miss messages because the other side has an out-of-date email address or has made a spelling error. The drawback of configuring a catch-all mailbox is that you may begin receiving a lot of spam emails, but this issue can be fixed by using an anti-spam filtering solution. It is also essential to bear in mind that a mailbox with an active catch-all functionality cannot redirect incoming messages to a 3rd-party address.

Catch-all Emails in Cloud Web Hosting

In case you have a Linux cloud web hosting with our company and you would like to enable the catch-all option for a specific mailbox that you have in your hosting account, it will take literally only a single click in the Email Manager section of your Hepsia hosting Control Panel to do this. A catch-all button is available to the right of each email address that you have created under any domain registered in the account. You can pick one single email address per domain name by clicking the corresponding button. This will activate the feature immediately, so all messages sent to misspelled addresses will be delivered there. Clicking the button for a second time will disable the catch-all feature. If you have activated email forwarding, our system will exhibit a cautionary note and you will not be able to activate the catch-all feature until you disable the forwarding or you can simply pick a different mailbox to be the catch-all one.

Catch-all Emails in Semi-dedicated Hosting

The custom Hepsia Control Panel that comes with every semi-dedicated server package that we’re offering will permit you to configure a catch-all mailbox without any difficulties even if you don’t have much email/web hosting experience. All you need to do to accomplish that is click the catch-all icon, which will be on the right-hand side of each email address that you’ve set up using your domain names in the Email Manager section of the hosting Control Panel. Since you can have only one single mailbox with this feature per domain name, our system will warn you if you’ve already created a different catch-all mailbox or if the one that you wish to use has email forwarding activated. If you reach the decision that you do not need this feature anymore, you can disable it by clicking once again on the exact same icon. The Email Manager section will also permit you to see your catch-all mailboxes at a glance.
