A catch-all e-mailbox is one that captures all the messages sent to non-existent email addresses. For example, if your address is info@domain.com, but somebody mistypes it and sends an email 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 thus you will never miss emails because the other party has an obsolete email address or has made a mistake. The drawback of having a catch-all mailbox is that you may start receiving a lot of spam, but this problem can be solved using an anti-spam filtering solution. It’s also important to bear in mind that a mailbox with an enabled catch-all feature cannot forward inbound email messages to a 3rd-party address.

Catch-all Emails in Shared Hosting

You will be able to create a catch-all e-mailbox without difficulty in case you’ve got a shared hosting account with our company. The Email Manager in our in-house developed Hepsia hosting Control Panel is feature-laden, yet extremely user-friendly, and it will allow you to enable various features, including the catch-all one, with just a couple of clicks. All the email addresses that you’ve created will be shown in alphabetical order in this section and on the right side of each one of them you’ll notice a small-size "Catch-all" sign. Clicking on it once will activate this feature, clicking it once more will disable it. Since you can have just one such catch-all mailbox per domain name, our system will inform you if you already have a different mailbox with this option enabled or if you have enabled email forwarding.

Catch-all Emails in Semi-dedicated Servers

A catch-all email address can be set up with a couple of clicks of the mouse if you’ve got a semi-dedicated plan with us. The semi-dedicated hosting account will be administered through our custom-built Hepsia Control Panel and you will be able to set up email addresses with any domain hosted there. To activate the catch-all option for a certain mailbox, you will have to click the logo with the exact same name, which will be on the right-hand side of each mailbox. Deactivating this feature can be done in the very same way and will not take more than a click either. In case the catch-all option has already been activated for a certain domain, you’ll get a warning message. The same is valid if the mailbox that you would like to be a catch-all one has email forwarding activated, as our system will never modify or disable anything automatically.
