A catch-all mailbox is one that captures all the email messages sent to non-existent addresses. For instance, if your address is info@domain.com, but someone miswrites it and sends an email 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 enabled and thus you will never miss messages because the other side has an obsolete email address or has made a typographical error. The negative aspect of having a catch-all mailbox is that you may start receiving plenty of spam, but this problem can be fixed by using anti-spam protection software. It’s also important to keep in mind that a mailbox with an enabled catch-all functionality cannot forward inbound messages to a third-party mailbox.

Catch-all Emails in Cloud Web Hosting

Setting up a catch-all email mailbox will be rather easy if you have a Linux cloud web hosting service with our company. You can activate the feature through our advanced, yet simple-to-work-with Email Manager, which is an integral part of the Hepsia Control Panel, via which you will manage the account itself. You will see all the mailboxes that you’ve created shown alphabetically and to the right of each one there will be a tiny "Catch-all" icon, which will instantaneously notify you if a certain mailbox gets all the messages associated with a certain domain name or not. With one click on the icon you can enable or disable this feature at any time. In case there’s activated email forwarding or in case some other mailbox has already been set up as a catch-all one for a particular domain, you will get an alert from our system. The latter will not replace/deactivate anything automatically and without your consent.

Catch-all Emails in Semi-dedicated Servers

The custom-built Hepsia hosting Control Panel that comes with each semi-dedicated server plan that we are offering will permit you to configure a catch-all e-mailbox without difficulty even if you don’t have much email/web hosting experience. All you have to do to accomplish that is click on the catch-all icon, which will be to the right of each email address that you have set up using your domains in the hosting Control Panel’s Email Manager section. Since you can have only one mailbox with this feature per domain name, our system will notify you if you have already set up a different catch-all mailbox or if the one that you want to use has email forwarding enabled. If you decide that you don’t want this feature anymore, you can remove it by clicking once again on the exact same icon. The Email Manager will also permit you to see your catch-all mailboxes at a glance.
