A catch-all email mailbox is one that collects all the email messages sent to inactive addresses. For example, if your address is info@domain.com, but somebody miswrites it and sends an email to inof@domain.com, it will still be received in the catch-all mailbox that you have created. Just one single mailbox per domain name can have this feature enabled and in this way you’ll never miss emails because the other side has an out-of-date email address or has made a spelling error. The downside of having a catch-all mailbox is that you may begin receiving a lot of spam, but this issue can be rectified using an anti-spam filtering solution. It’s also crucial to keep in mind that a mailbox with an enabled catch-all functionality cannot redirect inbound email messages to a third-party email address.
Catch-all Emails in Shared Hosting
If you host a domain name on our cloud web hosting platform and you’ve got a shared hosting account, you’ll be able to activate the catch-all feature for any email mailbox that you set up under the domain. The Hepsia hosting Control Panel’s Email Manager section offers quite a lot of features, but it is extremely easy to work with, so creating a catch-all mailbox requires only one click of the mouse. All the email addresses that you’ve set up will be listed in this section in alphabetical order and you’ll only have to click the "Catch-all" button associated with the concrete address. Our system will inform you if there’s already another catch-all mailbox activated for that domain or if the one that you would like to be a catch-all mailbox has email forwarding activated, so you can either disable the latter feature or choose a different mailbox. Disabling the catch-all feature is just as easy and takes yet another mouse click on the very same button.
Catch-all Emails in Semi-dedicated Hosting
A catch-all address can be configured with several clicks of the mouse if you’ve got a Linux semi-dedicated hosting package with our company. The semi-dedicated account will be managed through our in-house developed Hepsia hosting Control Panel and you will be able to create mailboxes with any domain hosted here. To enable the catch-all option for a particular mailbox, you’ll have to click the symbol with the exact same name, which will be next to each email address. Disabling this feature can be achieved in the very same manner and will not take more than a click either. If the catch-all option has already been activated for a given domain, you’ll get a warning note. The same is valid if the mailbox that you’d like to be a catch-all one has email forwarding enabled, as our system will never disable or edit any feature automatically.
