A catch-all e-mailbox is one that captures all the email messages sent to inactive email addresses. For instance, if your email address is info@domain.com, but somebody miswrites 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. Only one mailbox per domain can have this feature enabled and in this way you’ll never miss messages because the other side has an outdated email address or has made a typo. The downside of having a catch-all mailbox is that you may begin receiving a lot of unsolicited bulk emails, but this issue can be solved by using anti-spam protection software. It’s also important to know that a mailbox with an activated catch-all feature cannot redirect incoming emails to a third-party address.

Catch-all Emails in Cloud Hosting

In case you’ve got a Linux cloud hosting service with our company and you would like to enable the catch-all feature for a certain mailbox that you have in your hosting account, it will take literally only one click in the Email Manager section of your Hepsia hosting Control Panel to do this. A catch-all button is available on the right-hand side of each and every email address that you have set up under any domain name hosted in your account. You can choose one address per domain name by clicking the corresponding button. This will activate the feature instantly, so all emails sent to mistyped email addresses will be delivered there. Clicking on the button for a second time will turn off the catch-all feature. If you have enabled email forwarding, our system will exhibit a warning notification and you won’t be able to activate the catch-all feature unless you delete the forwarding or you can simply select a different mailbox to be the catch-all one.

Catch-all Emails in Semi-dedicated Servers

The catch-all option can be enabled with ease if you have a semi-dedicated server plan with us. All the email addresses that you’ve created using the domain names hosted in your semi-dedicated account will be shown in the Hepsia hosting Control Panel’s Email Manager section and you’ll see a small sign handily situated right next to each of them. With only a click of the mouse, you can activate or deactivate the catch-all option for any mailbox of your desire as long as there isn't another mailbox under the same domain name with this option already enabled and there isn't activated email forwarding. Alternatively, you can right-click on a mailbox and activate the feature through the menu that will come into sight. In case any of the conditions for setting up a catch-all mailbox is not matched, our system will let you know, but will not disable or replace anything automatically.
