A catch-all e-mailbox is one that captures all the messages sent to non-existent 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 created. Only one mailbox per domain name can have this feature activated and thus you will never miss emails because the other side has an obsolete email address or has made a spelling mistake. The downside of using a catch-all mailbox is that you may begin receiving lots of unsolicited bulk email messages, but this problem can be fixed by using anti-spam protection software. It is also essential to bear in mind that a mailbox with an activated catch-all feature cannot redirect incoming email messages to a 3rd-party address.
Catch-all Emails in Cloud Hosting
If you’ve got a Linux cloud hosting with us and you wish to activate the catch-all functionality for a particular mailbox that you’ve got in your hosting account, it will take literally only a single mouse click in the Email Manager section of your Hepsia hosting Control Panel to accomplish this. A catch-all button is available on the right-hand side of each email address that you have created under any domain name registered in the account. You can choose one email address per domain by clicking on the respective button. This will enable the feature right away, so all emails sent to mistyped addresses will be received there. Clicking the button once again will deactivate the catch-all feature. In case you’ve got activated email forwarding, our system will show a warning notice and you won’t be able to activate the catch-all feature unless you disable the forwarding or you can simply select another mailbox to be the catch-all one.
Catch-all Emails in Semi-dedicated Servers
The catch-all feature can be activated without any effort if you have a semi-dedicated server plan with us. All the email addresses that you have created with the domain names hosted in your semi-dedicated server account will be enumerated in the Hepsia Control Panel’s Email Manager section and you will notice a small-size sign handily located right next to each one of them. With only one single click, you can enable or disable the catch-all option for any mailbox of your choice as long as there isn't another mailbox under the same domain with the option already enabled and there isn't enabled email forwarding. Alternatively, you can right-click on an email address and enable this option using the menu that will show up. In case any of the conditions for setting up a catch-all mailbox is not satisfied, our system will inform you, but will not disable or replace anything automatically.
