A catch-all email mailbox is one that gathers all the messages sent to inactive addresses. For instance, if your email address is info@domain.com, but someone misspells it and sends an email to inof@domain.com, it will still be received in the catch-all mailbox that you have set up. Just one single mailbox per domain name can have this feature enabled and thus you will never miss emails because the other side has an out-of-date address or has made a typographical error. The downside of setting up a catch-all mailbox is that you may start receiving plenty of spam emails, but this problem can be resolved using an anti-spam filtering solution. It’s also important to keep in mind that a mailbox with an activated catch-all feature cannot redirect inbound emails to a third-party address.

Catch-all Emails in Shared Website Hosting

You will be able to create a catch-all e-mailbox without difficulty if you have a shared website hosting plan with our company. The Email Manager tool in our in-house developed Hepsia hosting Control Panel is feature-laden, yet amazingly user-friendly, and it will permit you to activate various options, including the catch-all one, with just several clicks of the mouse. All the mailboxes that you’ve got will be shown alphabetically in this section and on the right-hand side of each one you will find a tiny "Catch-all" symbol. Clicking on it once will enable this option, clicking it once again will disable it. As you can have only one such mailbox per domain name, our system will notify you if you’ve already got a different mailbox with this option enabled or if you have enabled email forwarding.

Catch-all Emails in Semi-dedicated Servers

A catch-all address can be created with a few mouse clicks if you’ve got a semi-dedicated hosting plan with us. The hosting account will be administered via our in-house built Hepsia Control Panel and you’ll be able to set up email addresses with any domain name registered here. To enable the catch-all feature for a certain mailbox, you’ll have to click the sign with the same name, which will be on the right side of each email address. Deactivating the feature can be accomplished in the exact same fashion and will not take more than a click either. If the catch-all option has already been enabled for a particular domain name, you’ll get a warning message. The same goes if the mailbox that you wish to be a catch-all one has email forwarding activated, as our system will never disable or edit any feature automatically.
