A catch-all mailbox is one that captures all the email messages sent to inactive email addresses. For instance, if your address is info@domain.com, but someone misspells it and sends an email message to inof@domain.com, it will still be received in the catch-all mailbox that you have configured. Only one single mailbox per domain can have this feature enabled and in this way you will never miss messages because the other side has an out-of-date address or has made a spelling error. The drawback of setting up a catch-all mailbox is that you may start receiving plenty of spam messages, but this issue can be solved by using anti-spam protection software. It is also essential to know that a mailbox with an enabled catch-all functionality cannot forward inbound email messages to a 3rd-party email address.

Catch-all Emails in Cloud Hosting

You’ll be able to create a catch-all email mailbox effortlessly if you have a cloud hosting plan with us. The Email Manager tool in our custom Hepsia hosting Control Panel is feature-rich, yet astonishingly easy to work with, and it will enable you to enable various features, including the catch-all one, with just a few clicks. All the email addresses that you’ve got will be displayed alphabetically in this section and on the right-hand side of each of them you’ll notice a small "Catch-all" symbol. Clicking it once will activate the feature, clicking it for a second time will disable it. Since you can have just one such mailbox per domain name, our system will alert you if you’ve already got a different mailbox with this feature enabled or if you’ve got activated email forwarding.

Catch-all Emails in Semi-dedicated Servers

The custom-created Hepsia hosting Control Panel that is included with every semi-dedicated server package that we’re offering will allow you to set up a catch-all mailbox without difficulty even if you don’t have much web/email hosting experience. All you have to do to accomplish that is click on the catch-all icon, which will be on the right side of each email address that you have created with your domains in the Email Manager section of the hosting Control Panel. Since you can have only one mailbox with this feature per domain name, our system will warn you if you’ve already set up a different catch-all mailbox or if the one that you want to use has email forwarding enabled. In case you decide that you don’t need the feature anymore, you can remove it by clicking again on the same icon. The Email Manager section will also allow you to view your catch-all mailboxes at a glance.
