A catch-all email mailbox is one that gathers all the emails sent to invalid email addresses. For example, 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 set up. Just one mailbox per domain name can have this feature activated and in this way you’ll never miss messages because the other side has an out-of-date address or has made a mistake. The downside of creating a catch-all mailbox is that you may begin receiving a lot of junk email messages, but this problem can be solved by using an anti-spam filtering solution. It is also crucial to bear in mind that a mailbox with an activated catch-all feature cannot redirect inbound emails to a 3rd-party email address.

Catch-all Emails in Web Hosting

In case you’ve got a Linux web hosting package with our company and you wish to activate the catch-all feature for a specific email mailbox that you have in your hosting account, it’ll take literally just a mouse click in the Email Manager section of your Hepsia hosting Control Panel to achieve this. A catch-all button is available next to each email address that you have set up under any domain name registered in the account. You can choose one single email address per domain name by clicking on the corresponding button. This will enable the feature straight away, so all emails sent to mistyped email addresses will be re-sent there. Clicking on the button again will turn off the catch-all feature. If you have activated email forwarding, our system will show a warning notice and you won’t be able to enable the catch-all feature until you disable the forwarding or you can simply pick another mailbox to be the catch-all one.

Catch-all Emails in Semi-dedicated Hosting

A catch-all email address can be created with a few clicks of the mouse if you’ve got a Linux semi-dedicated package with our company. The hosting account will be administered via our custom-developed Hepsia Control Panel and you’ll be able to create email addresses using any domain name hosted there. To activate the catch-all feature for a given mailbox, you’ll have to click on the symbol with the same name, which will be next to each email address. Deactivating the feature can be achieved in the very same manner and will not require more than one click either. In case the catch-all functionality has already been enabled for a particular domain name, you’ll receive a notification. The same goes if the mailbox that you want to be a catch-all one has email forwarding enabled, as our system will never alter or disable any feature automatically.
