A catch-all e-mailbox is one that gathers all the email messages sent to invalid addresses. For example, if your email address is info@domain.com, but somebody misspells 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mailbox per domain name can have this feature enabled and thus you’ll never miss messages because the other side has an out-of-date email address or has made a spelling mistake. The disadvantage of having a catch-all mailbox is that you may start receiving lots of spam emails, but this problem can be resolved by using anti-spam filtering software. It is also important to know that a mailbox with an enabled catch-all functionality cannot forward inbound emails to a 3rd-party email address.
Catch-all Emails in Shared Hosting
In case you host a domain on our cloud platform and you’ve got a shared hosting account, you’ll be able to enable the catch-all feature for any e-mailbox that you create under the domain name. The Email Manager section of the Hepsia hosting Control Panel comes with quite a few functions, but it’s extremely intuitive, so creating a catch-all mailbox takes only one mouse click. All the email addresses that you have will be displayed in this section in alphabetical order and you’ll simply need to click on the "Catch-all" button for the particular email address. Our system will notify you if there is already another catch-all mailbox activated for that domain or if the one that you’d like to be a catch-all mailbox has email forwarding activated, so you can either disable the latter feature or select a different mailbox. Disabling the catch-all option is just as simple and takes yet another mouse click on the exact same button.
Catch-all Emails in Semi-dedicated Hosting
You’ll be able to configure a catch-all email address with no more than a click in case you’ve got a Linux semi-dedicated package with our company and your email messages are handled by our cloud web hosting platform. All the email addresses that you set up using any domain name hosted in the semi-dedicated account will be listed in the Email Manager section of your Hepsia hosting Control Panel. Each of them will have a tiny "Catch-all" icon on its right-hand side, so all it will take to enable this feature will be to click on that icon. In the very same manner you’ll be able to deactivate the feature, in case you don’t need it any longer. Our system will warn you in case you are attempting to activate a 2nd catch-all email address for a given domain name or if there is activated email forwarding, but it will never deactivate or modify anything automatically or without your approval.
