A catch-all mailbox is one that captures all the messages sent to inactive addresses. For example, if your email address is info@domain.com, but somebody misspells 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 thus you will never miss messages because the other party has an obsolete address or has made a spelling error. The drawback of creating a catch-all mailbox is that you may start receiving a lot of unsolicited messages, but this issue can be rectified by using an anti-spam protection solution. It is also important to bear in mind that a mailbox with an activated catch-all functionality cannot forward inbound messages to a third-party email address.

Catch-all Emails in Hosting

You’ll be able to set up a catch-all email mailbox easily in case you’ve got a hosting plan with our company. The Email Manager tool in our in-house built Hepsia Control Panel is full-featured, yet unbelievably easy to use, and it will enable you to enable different features, including the catch-all one, with just a couple of clicks. All the mailboxes that you’ve set up will be displayed in alphabetical order in this section and to the right of each of them you will notice a tiny "Catch-all" icon. Clicking on it once will enable this option, clicking it again will disable it. Since you can have just one such catch-all mailbox per domain name, our system will inform you if you already have a different one with this feature enabled or if you’ve got activated email forwarding.

Catch-all Emails in Semi-dedicated Hosting

A catch-all address can be created with a couple of mouse clicks in case you’ve got a semi-dedicated package with our company. The semi-dedicated account will be managed through our in-house developed Hepsia Control Panel and you’ll be able to create email addresses using any domain registered here. To enable the catch-all functionality for a given mailbox, you will have to click the button with the exact same name, which will be on the right-hand side of each email address. Disabling this option can be achieved in the same manner and will not take more than one click either. If the catch-all option has already been enabled for a particular domain name, you’ll receive a warning note. The same goes if the mailbox that you wish to be a catch-all one has email forwarding activated, as our system will never replace or disable anything automatically.
