A catch-all mailbox is one that gathers all the messages sent to inactive email addresses. For instance, 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 configured. Only one mailbox per domain can have this feature activated and in this way you will never miss emails because the other side has an outdated email address or has made a spelling error. The downside of configuring a catch-all mailbox is that you may begin receiving a lot of unsolicited bulk messages, but this problem can be rectified by using an anti-spam protection solution. It’s also crucial to know that a mailbox with an enabled catch-all functionality cannot redirect incoming email messages to a third-party mailbox.

Catch-all Emails in Shared Hosting

In case you have a shared hosting with our company and you wish to enable the catch-all functionality for a specific mailbox that you’ve got in the hosting account, it will take literally only one click of the mouse in the Email Manager section of your Hepsia Control Panel to achieve that. A catch-all button is available next to each and every email address that you have created under any domain name hosted in your account. You can pick one email address per domain by clicking the respective button. This will activate the feature momentarily, so all email messages sent to miswritten email addresses will be received there. Clicking the button once again will turn off the catch-all feature. If you’ve got active email forwarding, our system will exhibit a warning note and you won’t be able to activate the catch-all feature till you disable the forwarding or you can simply select a different mailbox to be the catch-all one.

Catch-all Emails in Semi-dedicated Servers

The catch-all functionality can be enabled effortlessly if you’ve got a semi-dedicated server plan with our company. All the email addresses that you’ve set up using the domain names hosted in the semi-dedicated account will be enumerated in the Email Manager section of your Hepsia Control Panel and you will notice a small-size symbol conveniently situated directly next to each one of them. With only one click, you can activate or deactivate the catch-all option for any mailbox of your preference on the condition that there isn't another mailbox under that same domain with the option already enabled and there isn't active email forwarding. Alternatively, you can right-click on an email address and activate this option using the context menu that will pop up. If any of the prerequisites for setting up a catch-all mailbox is not matched, our system will let you know, but will not disable or replace anything automatically.
