A catch-all mailbox is one that captures all the messages sent to nonexistent email addresses. For example, if your email address is info@domain.com, but somebody miswrites 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. Only one single mailbox per domain can have this feature activated and in this way you’ll never miss messages because the other side has an outdated address or has made a typo. The downside of creating a catch-all mailbox is that you may begin receiving a lot of unsolicited bulk emails, but this issue can be rectified by using anti-spam protection software. It’s also vital to remember that a mailbox with an active catch-all feature cannot forward inbound messages to a 3rd-party email address.
Catch-all Emails in Website Hosting
If you host a domain on our cloud web hosting platform and you have a website hosting account, you’ll be able to enable the catch-all feature for any e-mailbox that you set up under the domain. The Hepsia Control Panel’s Email Manager section includes quite a lot of functions, but it’s unbelievably simple to work with, so creating a catch-all mailbox requires only a single click. All the email addresses that you have set up will be displayed in this section alphabetically and you will simply need to click on the "Catch-all" button associated with the specific address. Our system will alert you if there’s already another catch-all mailbox activated for that domain or if the one that you want to be a catch-all mailbox has email forwarding enabled, so you can either deactivate the latter feature or choose a different mailbox. Disabling the catch-all option is just as simple and takes one more click on the very same button.
Catch-all Emails in Semi-dedicated Hosting
A catch-all address can be created with a few clicks if you have a Linux semi-dedicated hosting with our company. The semi-dedicated hosting account will be administered via our custom-built Hepsia Control Panel and you’ll be able to create mailboxes with any domain registered there. To activate the catch-all feature for a given mailbox, you will need to click the sign with the exact same name, which will be to the right of each email address. Disabling this functionality can be achieved in the exact same manner and will not require more than one click either. If the catch-all option has already been activated for a certain domain, you will get a warning message. The same goes if the mailbox that you’d like to be a catch-all one has email forwarding enabled, as our system will never deactivate or replace any feature automatically.
