A catch-all mailbox is one that captures all the messages sent to invalid addresses. For instance, if your address is info@domain.com, but someone mistypes it and sends an email to inof@domain.com, it will still be received in the catch-all mailbox that you have set up. Only one single mailbox per domain can have this feature enabled and thus you’ll never miss messages because the other party has an out-of-date address or has made a mistake. The downside of configuring a catch-all mailbox is that you may start receiving plenty of unsolicited bulk messages, but this problem can be fixed by using an anti-spam protection solution. It is also important to know that a mailbox with an enabled catch-all functionality cannot forward inbound email messages to a third-party email address.

Catch-all Emails in Website Hosting

You will be able to create a catch-all e-mailbox without effort if you’ve got a website hosting plan with us. The Email Manager tool in our in-house created Hepsia hosting Control Panel is fully featured, yet really simple to work with, and it will enable you to activate various features, including the catch-all one, with just several clicks of the mouse. All the mailboxes that you’ve got will be enumerated in alphabetical order in this section and to the right of each one you’ll notice a small "Catch-all" icon. Clicking it once will enable the feature, clicking it for a second time will disable it. As you can have only one such catch-all mailbox per domain name, our system will notify you if you’ve already got another one with this feature enabled or if you’ve got activated email forwarding.

Catch-all Emails in Semi-dedicated Hosting

The custom-developed Hepsia hosting Control Panel that is included with each semi-dedicated server plan that we are offering will allow you to set up a catch-all mailbox without any difficulty even if you don’t have much email/web hosting experience. All you have to do to achieve that is click on the catch-all icon, which will be to the right of each email address that you’ve created using your domains in the Email Manager section of the hosting Control Panel. Since you can have just one single mailbox with this feature per domain name, our system will let you know if you have already created a different catch-all mailbox or if the one that you wish to use has email forwarding activated. In case you decide that you don’t want this feature anymore, you can turn it off by clicking again on the exact same icon. The Email Manager will also permit you to see your catch-all mailboxes at a glance.
