A catch-all mailbox is one that collects all the email messages sent to inactive addresses. For example, if your email address is info@domain.com, but someone misspells 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. Just one single mailbox per domain name can have this feature activated and thus you’ll never miss messages because the other party has an outdated address or has made a spelling error. The negative aspect of having a catch-all mailbox is that you may begin receiving a lot of junk emails, but this problem can be rectified by using anti-spam filtering software. It is also vital to keep in mind that a mailbox with an activated catch-all functionality cannot forward inbound emails to a third-party mailbox.

Catch-all Emails in Cloud Web Hosting

You’ll be able to set up a catch-all mailbox effortlessly if you’ve got a cloud web hosting plan with us. The Email Manager in our custom-built Hepsia hosting Control Panel is feature-laden, yet stunningly easy to work with, and it will allow you to activate various options, including the catch-all one, with just a couple of clicks of the mouse. All the mailboxes that you have created will be displayed in alphabetical order in this section and to the right of each of them you’ll notice a small "Catch-all" icon. Clicking it once will enable the feature, clicking on it once more will deactivate it. Since you can have just one such catch-all mailbox per domain name, our system will alert you if you’ve already got a different mailbox with this option activated or if you’ve got active email forwarding.

Catch-all Emails in Semi-dedicated Servers

The custom-created Hepsia Control Panel that comes with each and every semi-dedicated server package that we’re offering will allow you to configure a catch-all email mailbox effortlessly even if you do not have much web/email hosting experience. All it takes to do that is to click the catch-all icon, which will be on the right-hand side of each mailbox that you have set up using your domains in the Email Manager section of the Control Panel. As you can have just one single mailbox with this feature per domain name, our system will notify you if you’ve already configured a different catch-all mailbox or if the one that you want to use has email forwarding enabled. If you decide that you don’t need this feature any longer, you can remove it by clicking once again on the exact same icon. The Email Manager will also allow you to see your catch-all mailboxes at a glance.
