A catch-all mailbox is one that collects all the messages sent to non-existent email addresses. For example, if your address is info@domain.com, but someone misspells it and sends an email 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 activated and thus you’ll never miss emails because the other side has an obsolete address or has made a mistake. The downside of setting up a catch-all mailbox is that you may start receiving a lot of spam emails, but this issue can be solved by using an anti-spam protection solution. It’s also vital to remember that a mailbox with an activated catch-all feature cannot forward inbound email messages to a 3rd-party mailbox.
Catch-all Emails in Shared Hosting
If you host a domain name on our cloud web hosting platform and you’ve got a shared hosting account, you’ll be able to activate the catch-all feature for any email mailbox that you set up under the domain name. The Email Manager section of the Hepsia hosting Control Panel comes with quite a few features, but it is unbelievably easy to work with, so configuring a catch-all mailbox requires just one single mouse click. All the email addresses that you have set up will be shown in this section in alphabetical order and you will simply have to click the "Catch-all" button associated with the respective email address. Our system will inform you if there is already another catch-all mailbox activated for that domain or if the one that you want to be a catch-all mailbox has email forwarding enabled, so you can either disable the latter feature or select some other mailbox. Deactivating the catch-all option is just as simple and requires yet another click on the same button.
Catch-all Emails in Semi-dedicated Servers
A catch-all email address can be created with a couple of mouse clicks if you have a semi-dedicated server with our company. The semi-dedicated hosting account will be managed via our custom-created Hepsia Control Panel and you’ll be able to create mailboxes under any domain name hosted here. To activate the catch-all feature for a particular mailbox, you’ll need to click the icon with the exact same name, which will be next to each mailbox. Disabling this option can be accomplished in the same way and will not take more than one click either. If the catch-all functionality has already been enabled for a given domain, you will get a warning notice. The same is valid if the mailbox that you want to be a catch-all one has email forwarding enabled, as our system will never change or deactivate anything automatically.
