A catch-all e-mailbox is one that captures all the messages sent to inactive addresses. For instance, if your email address is info@domain.com, but somebody miswrites it and sends an email to inof@domain.com, it will still be received in the catch-all mailbox that you have set up. Just one mailbox per domain can have this feature enabled and in this way you’ll never miss emails because the other side has an obsolete address or has made a spelling mistake. The disadvantage of having a catch-all mailbox is that you may start receiving a lot of unsolicited bulk email messages, but this issue can be resolved by using an anti-spam protection solution. It’s also crucial to remember that a mailbox with an active catch-all functionality cannot redirect incoming messages to a third-party mailbox.
Catch-all Emails in Web Hosting
If you host a domain name on our cloud platform and you’ve got a web hosting account, you will be able to activate the catch-all functionality for any mailbox that you set up under the domain. The Email Manager section of the Hepsia hosting Control Panel includes quite a few features, but it’s stunningly easy to use, so configuring a catch-all mailbox takes just one mouse click. All the email addresses that you have created will be shown in this section in alphabetical order and you’ll only need to click the "Catch-all" button associated with the particular email address. Our system will alert you if there is 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 turn off the latter feature or select another mailbox. Deactivating the catch-all option is just as easy and takes one more mouse click on the very same button.
Catch-all Emails in Semi-dedicated Servers
The catch-all functionality can be activated without any effort in case you’ve got a semi-dedicated server account with us. All the email addresses that you’ve set up using the domain names hosted in your semi-dedicated account will be displayed in the Email Manager section of your Hepsia hosting Control Panel and you will notice a mini button conveniently situated directly next to each one. With just a single click, you can activate or deactivate the catch-all option for any mailbox of your choice on the condition that there isn't another mailbox under that same domain name with this option already activated and there isn't activated email forwarding. Alternatively, you can right-click on an email address and enable this feature through the contextual menu that will appear. In case any of the preconditions for setting up a catch-all mailbox is not met, our system will warn you, but will not replace or disable anything automatically.
