A catch-all e-mailbox is one that gathers all the emails sent to nonexistent email addresses. For instance, if your email 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 set up. Just one mailbox per domain can have this feature activated and in this way you’ll never miss emails because the other party has an obsolete address or has made a mistake. The downside of having a catch-all mailbox is that you may start receiving a lot of spam, but this issue can be solved using an anti-spam protection solution. It’s also important to bear in mind that a mailbox with an activated catch-all feature cannot forward incoming messages to a third-party email address.
Catch-all Emails in Shared Website Hosting
You will be able to configure a catch-all e-mailbox without effort in case you’ve got a shared website hosting account with us. The Email Manager in our custom-created Hepsia hosting Control Panel is full-featured, yet really intuitive, and it will allow you to enable different options, including the catch-all one, with no more than a couple of mouse clicks. All the email addresses that you’ve got will be enumerated alphabetically in this section and next to each of them you’ll notice a small "Catch-all" button. Clicking it once will enable the feature, clicking on it once again will disable it. As you can have just one such catch-all mailbox per domain, our system will alert you if you already have another one with this feature activated or if you’ve got enabled email forwarding.
Catch-all Emails in Semi-dedicated Hosting
The in-house built Hepsia hosting Control Panel that comes with each and every semi-dedicated server package that we offer will permit you to create a catch-all e-mailbox easily even in case you do not have much web/email hosting experience. All it takes to accomplish that is to click on the catch-all icon, which will be on the right-hand side of each mailbox that you have created using your domains in the Control Panel’s Email Manager section. As you can have only one single mailbox with this feature per domain, our system will notify you if you’ve already configured a different catch-all mailbox or if the one that you’d like to use has email forwarding activated. If you reach the decision that you don’t need the feature any longer, you can remove it by clicking again on the very same icon. The Email Manager section will also allow you to view your catch-all mailboxes at a glance.
