A catch-all e-mailbox is one that collects all the emails sent to inactive addresses. For example, if your address is info@domain.com, but someone mistypes it and sends an email message to inof@domain.com, it will still be received in the catch-all mailbox that you have created. Only one mailbox per domain name can have this feature enabled and thus you will never miss emails because the other side has an outdated email address or has made a typographical error. The downside of creating a catch-all mailbox is that you may begin receiving lots of unsolicited messages, but this problem can be resolved by using an anti-spam filtering solution. It’s also important to keep in mind that a mailbox with an enabled catch-all feature cannot redirect incoming email messages to a third-party mailbox.
Catch-all Emails in Web Hosting
You’ll be able to set up a catch-all mailbox easily if you have a web hosting plan with our company. The Email Manager in our custom-built Hepsia hosting Control Panel is fully featured, yet remarkably intuitive, and it will enable you to enable different options, including the catch-all one, with only a few mouse clicks. All the mailboxes that you’ve got will be displayed alphabetically in this section and to the right of each one you will find a mini "Catch-all" icon. Clicking it once will enable the feature, clicking on it twice will disable it. Since you can have only one such catch-all mailbox per domain name, our system will warn you if you’ve already got a different one with this feature enabled or if you have activated email forwarding.
Catch-all Emails in Semi-dedicated Hosting
The catch-all functionality can be activated effortlessly if you’ve got a semi-dedicated server account with us. All the email addresses that you’ve set up with the domains hosted in your semi-dedicated account will be enumerated in the Email Manager section of your Hepsia Control Panel and you’ll notice a small logo handily situated right next to each one. With only a single mouse click, you can enable or disable the catch-all option for any mailbox of your choice provided that there isn't another mailbox under the same domain name with the option already enabled and there isn't active email forwarding. Instead, you can right-click on a mailbox and enable this feature using the contextual menu that will pop up. In case any of the requirements for configuring a catch-all mailbox is not answered, our system will warn you, but will not replace or deactivate anything automatically.
