A catch-all email mailbox is one that gathers all the email messages sent to invalid email addresses. For example, if your email address is info@domain.com, but somebody mistypes 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 mailbox per domain name can have this feature activated and thus you will never miss emails because the other party has an obsolete address or has made a mistake. The negative aspect of having a catch-all mailbox is that you may begin receiving plenty of spam messages, but this issue can be fixed using an anti-spam filtering solution. It’s also important to remember that a mailbox with an active catch-all feature cannot forward incoming messages to a third-party email address.

Catch-all Emails in Shared Web Hosting

You will be able to configure a catch-all email mailbox without any difficulty in case you’ve got a shared web hosting account with our company. The Email Manager tool in our in-house built Hepsia hosting Control Panel is fully featured, yet surprisingly intuitive, and it will permit you to activate different features, including the catch-all one, with only a couple of clicks. All the email addresses that you have created will be shown alphabetically in this section and to the right of each one you’ll notice a small-size "Catch-all" icon. Clicking on it once will activate the feature, clicking it again will deactivate it. Since you can have just one such catch-all mailbox per domain name, our system will notify you if you already have a different one with this option enabled or if you have enabled email forwarding.

Catch-all Emails in Semi-dedicated Servers

A catch-all email address can be set up with a few clicks in case you’ve got a Linux semi-dedicated server with our company. The semi-dedicated account will be administered through our custom-created Hepsia hosting Control Panel and you’ll be able to set up email addresses with any domain registered here. To enable the catch-all functionality for a particular mailbox, you will need to click on the sign with the same name, which will be on the right side of each email address. Disabling this feature can be done in the same way and will not require more than one click either. In case the catch-all option has already been enabled for a given domain, you will get a warning notice. The same is valid if the mailbox that you wish to be a catch-all one has email forwarding enabled, as our system will never deactivate or modify any feature automatically.
