A catch-all email mailbox is one that collects all the messages sent to inactive 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 created. Just one single mailbox per domain can have this feature activated and in this way you will never miss messages because the other side has an obsolete email address or has made a typo. The downside of configuring a catch-all mailbox is that you may start receiving lots of spam messages, but this problem can be fixed by using anti-spam filtering software. It’s also important to know that a mailbox with an enabled catch-all feature cannot redirect incoming emails to a third-party address.
Catch-all Emails in Shared Web Hosting
In case you host a domain on our cloud hosting platform and you’ve got a shared web hosting account, you’ll be able to enable the catch-all feature for any mailbox that you create under the domain name. The Email Manager section of the Hepsia hosting Control Panel includes quite a few functions, but it’s really simple to work with, so creating a catch-all mailbox takes only a single mouse click. All the email addresses that you’ve got will be displayed in this section alphabetically and you’ll simply need to click on the "Catch-all" button for the respective email address. Our system will notify you if there’s already another catch-all mailbox activated for that domain name or if the one that you want to be a catch-all mailbox has email forwarding activated, so you can either deactivate the latter feature or pick another mailbox. Disabling the catch-all feature is just as simple and takes yet another mouse click on the very same button.
Catch-all Emails in Semi-dedicated Hosting
You’ll be able to create a catch-all address with no more than one click if you have a Linux semi-dedicated hosting with us and your emails are handled by our cloud platform. All the mailboxes that you create using any domain name hosted in the semi-dedicated account will be enumerated 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 the feature will be to click that icon. In the exact same manner you will be able to deactivate the feature, if you no longer need it. Our system will warn you if you’re attempting to activate a 2nd catch-all mailbox for a particular domain name or if there’s activated email forwarding, but it’ll never modify or deactivate any feature automatically or without your consent.
