A catch-all e-mailbox is one that gathers all the messages sent to non-existent email addresses. For instance, if your address is info@domain.com, but somebody mistypes it and sends a message to inof@domain.com, it will still be received in the catch-all mailbox that you have configured. Just one mailbox per domain can have this feature enabled and in this way you will never miss emails because the other party has an out-of-date address or has made a mistake. The disadvantage of configuring a catch-all mailbox is that you may start receiving lots of junk messages, but this issue can be solved by using anti-spam protection software. It’s also vital to bear in mind that a mailbox with an active catch-all feature cannot redirect incoming emails to a 3rd-party address.

Catch-all Emails in Website Hosting

In case you’ve got a website hosting with our company and you wish to activate the catch-all functionality for a given mailbox that you’ve got in your account, it’ll take literally just a click in the Email Manager section of your Hepsia Control Panel to achieve that. A catch-all button is available to the right of each and every email address that you have set up under any domain name hosted in your account. You can choose one single address per domain by clicking the respective button. This will enable the feature immediately, so all email messages sent to miswritten email addresses will be delivered there. Clicking on the button once more will disable the catch-all feature. In case you’ve got enabled email forwarding, our system will show a cautionary message and you will not be able to enable the catch-all feature until you delete the forwarding or you can simply choose another mailbox to be the catch-all one.

Catch-all Emails in Semi-dedicated Servers

You’ll be able to configure a catch-all email address with no more than one click if you’ve got a semi-dedicated server with us and your emails are handled by our cloud hosting platform. All the email addresses that you create with any domain name hosted in the semi-dedicated account will be listed in the Email Manager section of your Hepsia Control Panel. Each of them will have a tiny "Catch-all" icon next to it, so all it will take to activate this option will be to click that icon. In the very same manner you’ll be able to deactivate the feature, in case you don’t need it any longer. Our system will inform you in case you’re trying to enable a 2nd catch-all email address for a given domain or in case there is enabled email forwarding, but it will never deactivate or change anything automatically and without your consent.
