A catch-all mailbox is one that collects all the email messages sent to non-existent addresses. For instance, 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 created. Just one mailbox per domain can have this feature activated and in this way you will never miss messages because the other side has an outdated email address or has made a spelling error. The downside of having a catch-all mailbox is that you may start receiving a lot of unsolicited emails, but this issue can be rectified using an anti-spam protection solution. It’s also essential to keep in mind that a mailbox with an active catch-all functionality cannot redirect incoming emails to a third-party email address.

Catch-all Emails in Cloud Web Hosting

If you’ve got a cloud web hosting service with our company and you would like to activate the catch-all functionality for a given email mailbox that you have in the account, it’ll take literally only a single mouse click in the Email Manager section of your Hepsia Control Panel to accomplish this. A catch-all button is available on the right-hand side of each and every email address that you have created under any domain name registered in your account. You can pick one single address per domain by clicking the respective button. This will activate the feature momentarily, so all messages sent to mistyped addresses will be re-sent there. Clicking on the button for a second time will deactivate the catch-all feature. If you have active email forwarding, our system will display a warning message and you will not be able to activate the catch-all feature until you delete the forwarding or you can simply choose some other mailbox to be the catch-all one.

Catch-all Emails in Semi-dedicated Hosting

The custom-built Hepsia Control Panel that is included with every semi-dedicated server plan that we are offering will permit you to configure a catch-all email mailbox without any difficulty even if you don’t have much web/email hosting experience. All you have to do to achieve that is click on the catch-all icon, which will be on the right-hand side of each mailbox that you have created using your domain names in the Control Panel’s Email Manager section. Since you can have only one mailbox with this feature per domain name, our system will inform you if you’ve already created a different catch-all mailbox or if the one that you wish to use has email forwarding enabled. If you reach the decision that you don’t need this feature anymore, you can remove it by clicking again on the same icon. The Email Manager section will also permit you to view your catch-all mailboxes at a glance.
