A catch-all mailbox is one that captures all the email messages sent to nonexistent email addresses. For instance, if your address is info@domain.com, but somebody misspells it and sends an email message to inof@domain.com, it will still be received in the catch-all mailbox that you have created. Only one mailbox per domain can have this feature activated and thus you’ll never miss emails 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 lots of unsolicited bulk emails, but this issue can be resolved by using an anti-spam protection solution. It’s also important to bear in mind that a mailbox with an enabled catch-all functionality cannot forward inbound messages to a 3rd-party address.
Catch-all Emails in Hosting
You’ll be able to configure a catch-all email mailbox without any difficulty if you have a hosting plan with us. The Email Manager tool in our custom-developed Hepsia Control Panel is fully featured, yet astonishingly easy to work with, and it will allow you to enable various options, including the catch-all one, with only a couple of mouse clicks. All the email addresses that you’ve set up will be enumerated in alphabetical order in this section and to the right of each one of them you’ll notice a small-size "Catch-all" icon. Clicking it once will enable the feature, clicking on it twice will disable it. Since you can have just one such catch-all mailbox per domain name, our system will notify you if you already have a different mailbox with this option activated or if you’ve got active email forwarding.
Catch-all Emails in Semi-dedicated Hosting
A catch-all address can be set up with a few clicks if you’ve got a semi-dedicated hosting with us. The semi-dedicated hosting account will be administered via our custom-created Hepsia hosting Control Panel and you’ll be able to set up mailboxes under any domain hosted here. To activate the catch-all functionality for a given mailbox, you will need to click the logo with the exact same name, which will be on the right side of each email address. Disabling the feature can be done in the very same way and will not require more than a click either. If a catch-all mailbox has already been activated for a particular domain name, you’ll receive a warning notification. The same is valid if the mailbox that you’d like to be a catch-all one has email forwarding activated, as our system will never deactivate or edit any feature automatically.
