A catch-all e-mailbox is one that gathers all the emails sent to non-existent addresses. For instance, 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 set up. Only one single mailbox per domain can have this feature enabled and in this way you’ll never miss emails because the other side has an out-of-date email address or has made a mistake. The disadvantage of configuring a catch-all mailbox is that you may begin receiving a lot of unsolicited email messages, but this problem can be resolved using an anti-spam filtering solution. It is also crucial to know that a mailbox with an activated catch-all functionality cannot redirect incoming messages to a 3rd-party address.
Catch-all Emails in Hosting
You will be able to set up a catch-all e-mailbox without any effort if you’ve got a hosting plan with us. The Email Manager in our in-house built Hepsia hosting Control Panel is fully featured, yet unbelievably easy to use, and it will permit you to activate various options, including the catch-all one, with no more than a few mouse clicks. All the email addresses that you have will be listed in alphabetical order in this section and on the right side of each one you will notice a small "Catch-all" symbol. Clicking on it once will enable this option, clicking on it once again will disable it. Since you can have only one such mailbox per domain name, our system will notify you if you’ve already got another one with this option enabled or if you have enabled email forwarding.
Catch-all Emails in Semi-dedicated Hosting
You’ll be able to create a catch-all address with no more than a click if you have a Linux semi-dedicated hosting with us and your email messages are handled by our cloud web hosting platform. All the email addresses that you set up with any domain hosted in your semi-dedicated account will be listed in the Email Manager section of your Hepsia Control Panel. Each of them will have a small-size "Catch-all" icon on its right-hand side, so all it will take to activate this feature will be to click on that icon. In the exact same fashion you will be able to deactivate the feature, in case you do not need it anymore. Our system will notify you if you’re trying to activate a 2nd catch-all mailbox for a particular domain or in case there is activated email forwarding, but it’ll never disable or change anything automatically and without your approval.
