A catch-all mailbox is one that collects all the messages sent to invalid addresses. For instance, if your email address is info@domain.com, but someone miswrites it and sends an email message to inof@domain.com, it will still be received in the catch-all mailbox that you have configured. Just one single mailbox per domain can have this feature enabled and thus you will never miss messages because the other party has an out-of-date address or has made a spelling error. The negative aspect of using a catch-all mailbox is that you may begin receiving a lot of spam emails, but this problem can be fixed by using anti-spam protection software. It is also vital to know that a mailbox with an activated catch-all functionality cannot forward incoming messages to a third-party mailbox.

Catch-all Emails in Shared Hosting

You will be able to configure a catch-all mailbox without effort if you have a shared hosting plan with our company. The Email Manager in our in-house developed Hepsia Control Panel is feature-laden, yet surprisingly easy to work with, and it will permit you to activate different options, including the catch-all one, with no more than several clicks of the mouse. All the mailboxes that you have created will be displayed alphabetically in this section and to the right of each of them you’ll find a small-size "Catch-all" icon. Clicking it once will enable this option, clicking it once more will disable it. Since you can have only one such catch-all mailbox per domain name, our system will warn you if you’ve already got another one with this feature activated or if you have active email forwarding.

Catch-all Emails in Semi-dedicated Hosting

The catch-all functionality can be activated effortlessly if you’ve got a semi-dedicated server plan with us. All the email addresses that you have set up with the domain names hosted in the semi-dedicated account will be displayed in the Email Manager section of your Hepsia Control Panel and you will notice a small-size icon handily situated right next to each one of them. With only one click of the mouse, you can activate or deactivate the catch-all option for any mailbox of your choice provided that there isn't another mailbox under that same domain with the option already activated and there isn't enabled email forwarding. Instead, you can right-click on an email address and enable this option using the menu that will surface. If any of the prerequisites for configuring a catch-all mailbox is not fulfilled, our system will warn you, but will not disable or replace anything automatically.
