A catch-all e-mailbox is one that gathers all the messages sent to non-existent addresses. For example, if your email address is info@domain.com, but somebody misspells it and sends an email message to inof@domain.com, it will still be received in the catch-all mailbox that you have set up. Just one single mailbox per domain can have this feature enabled and thus you’ll never miss emails because the other side has an outdated email address or has made a typo. The negative aspect of having a catch-all mailbox is that you may start receiving plenty of unsolicited email messages, but this issue can be solved by using anti-spam filtering software. It is also crucial to remember that a mailbox with an active catch-all feature cannot redirect incoming email messages to a 3rd-party mailbox.
Catch-all Emails in Hosting
In case you host a domain on our cloud hosting platform and you’ve got a hosting account, you will be able to activate the catch-all feature for any e-mailbox that you create under the domain name. The Hepsia hosting Control Panel’s Email Manager section includes quite a few features, but it’s incredibly user-friendly, so setting up a catch-all mailbox takes only a single click. All the email addresses that you’ve got will be enumerated in this section in alphabetical order and you’ll simply have to click the "Catch-all" button associated with the given email address. Our system will notify you if there is already another catch-all mailbox activated for that domain name or if the one that you want to be a catch-all mailbox has email forwarding enabled, so you can either turn off the latter feature or select another mailbox. Disabling the catch-all option is just as simple and takes one more mouse click on the exact same button.
Catch-all Emails in Semi-dedicated Servers
You will be able to create a catch-all email address with no more than one click in case you’ve got a semi-dedicated server with us and your emails are handled by our cloud web hosting platform. All the email addresses that you set up with any domain hosted in the semi-dedicated account will be listed in the Hepsia hosting Control Panel’s Email Manager section. Each of them will have a tiny "Catch-all" icon next to it, so all it will take to enable this option will be to click that icon. In the very same manner you will be able to remove the feature, in case you do not need it any longer. Our system will warn you if you’re trying to activate a second catch-all mailbox for a particular domain name or in case there is active email forwarding, but it’ll never disable or change anything automatically and without your permission.
