A catch-all mailbox is one that gathers all the email messages sent to nonexistent 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 configured. Just one single mailbox per domain name can have this feature activated and in this way you’ll never miss emails because the other side has an out-of-date address or has made a typographical error. The drawback of having a catch-all mailbox is that you may start receiving plenty of spam email messages, but this issue can be fixed using anti-spam filtering software. It is also crucial to know that a mailbox with an activated catch-all feature cannot redirect incoming emails to a third-party mailbox.
Catch-all Emails in Shared Hosting
Configuring a catch-all email mailbox will be incredibly easy in case you’ve got a shared hosting with our company. You can enable this feature through our powerful, yet user-friendly Email Manager tool, which is part of the Hepsia Control Panel, via which you’ll manage your web hosting account. You’ll find all the email addresses that you have created shown in alphabetical order and on the right side of each one there will be a small "Catch-all" icon, which will quickly tell you whether a certain mailbox stores all the emails associated with a certain domain name or not. With one single click on the icon you can enable or disable the feature at any moment. In case there’s activated email forwarding or if a different mailbox has already been configured as a catch-all one for a specific domain name, you’ll receive a warning message from our system. The latter will not deactivate/replace anything automatically and without your approval.
Catch-all Emails in Semi-dedicated Hosting
You will be able to set up a catch-all address with no more than a click in case you have a semi-dedicated hosting package with us and your email messages are handled by our cloud web hosting platform. All the mailboxes that you create using any domain name hosted in the semi-dedicated account will be shown in the Email Manager section of your Hepsia Control Panel. Each of them will have a mini "Catch-all" icon next to it, so all it will take to activate the feature will be to click on that icon. In the same way you’ll be able to remove the feature, if you do not need it any longer. Our system will warn you if you’re attempting to activate a 2nd catch-all email address for a particular domain or in case there is enabled email forwarding, but it’ll never deactivate or change any feature automatically and without your permission.
