A catch-all email mailbox is one that captures all the messages sent to inactive addresses. For example, if your email address is info@domain.com, but somebody mistypes it and sends a message to inof@domain.com, it will still be received in the catch-all mailbox that you have configured. Just one single mailbox per domain can have this feature enabled and thus you’ll never miss emails because the other side has an out-of-date email address or has made a spelling mistake. The disadvantage of having a catch-all mailbox is that you may begin receiving a lot of spam messages, but this problem can be fixed using anti-spam protection software. It’s also essential to remember that a mailbox with an active catch-all feature cannot forward inbound messages to a 3rd-party mailbox.
Catch-all Emails in Hosting
In case you’ve got a Linux hosting with our company and you’d like to activate the catch-all option for a particular e-mailbox that you’ve got in your account, it’ll take literally only a single click of the mouse in the Email Manager section of your Hepsia Control Panel to achieve that. A catch-all button is available next to each and every email address that you have created under any domain registered in your account. You can select one email address per domain name by clicking the corresponding button. This will activate the feature straight away, so all email messages sent to miswritten email addresses will be received there. Clicking on the button again will turn off the catch-all feature. In case you’ve got enabled email forwarding, our system will show a warning message and you will not be able to activate the catch-all feature until you remove the forwarding or you can simply choose another mailbox to be the catch-all one.
Catch-all Emails in Semi-dedicated Hosting
You’ll be able to configure a catch-all address with no more than one click in case you have a 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 name hosted in the semi-dedicated hosting account will be displayed in the Email Manager section of your Hepsia hosting Control Panel. Each of them will have a tiny "Catch-all" icon next to it, so all it will take to enable the feature will be to click that icon. In the exact same fashion you’ll be able to remove the feature, if you don’t need it any longer. Our system will notify you in case you’re attempting to enable a 2nd catch-all mailbox for a particular domain name or in case there is active email forwarding, but it’ll never change or deactivate any feature automatically and without your approval.
