A catch-all email mailbox is one that captures all the messages sent to non-existent addresses. For instance, if your address is info@domain.com, but someone misspells it and sends an email to inof@domain.com, it will still be received in the catch-all mailbox that you have configured. Just one mailbox per domain can have this feature activated and thus you’ll never miss messages because the other party has an out-of-date address or has made a mistake. The disadvantage of having a catch-all mailbox is that you may begin receiving a lot of spam emails, but this problem can be solved using anti-spam filtering software. It is also crucial to remember that a mailbox with an active catch-all functionality cannot redirect incoming emails to a third-party mailbox.
Catch-all Emails in Shared Website Hosting
If you host a domain name on our cloud web hosting platform and you have a shared website hosting account, you will be able to activate the catch-all functionality for any email mailbox that you set up under the domain. The Hepsia Control Panel’s Email Manager section comes with quite a lot of features, but it’s incredibly user-friendly, so configuring a catch-all mailbox requires only a mouse click. All the email addresses that you’ve got will be enumerated in this section in alphabetical order and you’ll only have to click on the "Catch-all" button associated with the concrete email address. Our system will alert you if there is already another catch-all mailbox enabled for that domain or if the one that you would like to be a catch-all mailbox has email forwarding enabled, so you can either turn off the latter feature or select a different mailbox. Disabling the catch-all feature is just as easy and takes one more click on the same button.
Catch-all Emails in Semi-dedicated Servers
You’ll be able to set up a catch-all address with no more than a click if you have a semi-dedicated hosting service with our company and your emails are handled by our cloud hosting platform. All the email addresses that you create with any domain hosted in your account will be shown 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 activate this option will be to click that icon. In the very same fashion you will be able to disable the feature, in case you don’t need it any longer. Our system will notify you if you’re attempting to enable a 2nd catch-all mailbox for a specific domain or in case there’s enabled email forwarding, but it’ll never deactivate or alter any feature automatically or without your permission.
