A catch-all email mailbox is one that gathers all the email messages sent to invalid addresses. For instance, if your 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 single mailbox per domain can have this feature activated and in this way you’ll never miss emails because the other side has an out-of-date email address or has made a mistake. The downside of using a catch-all mailbox is that you may start receiving plenty of spam email messages, but this problem can be resolved by using an anti-spam filtering solution. It is also essential to bear in mind that a mailbox with an active catch-all functionality cannot redirect inbound emails to a 3rd-party mailbox.
Catch-all Emails in Web Hosting
In case you host a domain on our cloud web hosting platform and you’ve got a web hosting account, you will be able to enable the catch-all feature for any email mailbox that you create under the domain name. The Email Manager section of the Hepsia hosting Control Panel includes quite a lot of functions, but it’s unbelievably simple to work with, so setting up a catch-all mailbox requires just one single click. All the email addresses that you have will be shown in this section alphabetically and you will simply need to click the "Catch-all" button for the given address. Our system will warn you if there’s 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 choose some other mailbox. Deactivating the catch-all feature is just as simple and takes one more click on the same button.
Catch-all Emails in Semi-dedicated Servers
You will be able to configure a catch-all address with no more than a click in case you’ve got a semi-dedicated server with our company and your emails are handled by our cloud hosting platform. All the mailboxes that you set up with any domain hosted in your account will be displayed in the Email Manager section of your Hepsia hosting Control Panel. Each of them will have a small-size "Catch-all" icon next to it, so all it will take to enable this option will be to click that icon. In the very same way you will be able to deactivate the feature, if you do not need it anymore. Our system will notify you in case you are attempting to activate a 2nd catch-all mailbox for a specific domain or in case there is active email forwarding, but it’ll never alter or disable any feature automatically or without your approval.
