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 someone misspells 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per domain name can have this feature enabled and thus you’ll never miss messages because the other party has an out-of-date address or has made a mistake. The drawback of setting up a catch-all mailbox is that you may begin receiving plenty of junk email messages, but this issue can be rectified using anti-spam filtering software. It’s also important to remember that a mailbox with an active catch-all feature cannot forward inbound email messages to a third-party mailbox.
Catch-all Emails in Shared Hosting
Setting up a catch-all email mailbox will be unbelievably easy if you’ve got a Linux shared plan with our company. You can activate this option through our advanced, albeit user-friendly Email Manager, which is an essential part of the Hepsia Control Panel, via which you will administer the hosting account itself. You’ll find all the mailboxes that you have set up listed in alphabetical order and on the right side of each of them there will be a mini "Catch-all" icon, which will immediately let you know if a specific mailbox stores all the messages for a certain domain or not. With one single mouse click on the icon you can activate or deactivate this feature at any time. If there is activated email forwarding or in case another mailbox has already been configured as a catch-all one for a given domain name, you’ll get a warning note from our system. The latter will not replace/disable anything automatically or without your approval.
Catch-all Emails in Semi-dedicated Servers
You’ll be able to create a catch-all email address with no more than a click in case you’ve got a semi-dedicated plan with our company and your emails are handled by our cloud hosting platform. All the mailboxes that you create using any domain name hosted in the account will be listed in the Hepsia hosting Control Panel’s Email Manager section. Each of them will have a tiny "Catch-all" icon next to it, so all it will take to activate the feature will be to click that icon. In the exact same fashion you’ll be able to deactivate the feature, if you do not need it any longer. Our system will let you know if you’re attempting to enable a second catch-all address for a given domain or if there is enabled email forwarding, but it will never deactivate or change any feature automatically and without your consent.
