A catch-all mailbox is one that collects all the messages sent to inactive email addresses. For example, if your email address is info@domain.com, but someone 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. Only one mailbox per domain name can have this feature activated and in this way you’ll never miss messages because the other side has an out-of-date address or has made a mistake. The negative aspect of setting up a catch-all mailbox is that you may start receiving lots of unsolicited bulk email messages, but this issue can be fixed using anti-spam filtering software. It’s also essential to know that a mailbox with an enabled catch-all feature cannot redirect inbound emails to a 3rd-party mailbox.
Catch-all Emails in Cloud Web Hosting
In case you have a Linux cloud web hosting plan with our company and you want to activate the catch-all option for a specific email mailbox that you’ve got in your web hosting account, it’ll take literally just a single click of the mouse in the Email Manager section of your Hepsia Control Panel to achieve this. A catch-all button is available to the right of each and every email address that you have created under any domain name hosted in the account. You can select one address per domain by clicking on the corresponding button. This will activate the feature instantly, so all emails sent to miswritten email addresses will be received there. Clicking the button for a second time will turn off the catch-all feature. In case you have activated email forwarding, our system will show a cautionary message and you will not be able to enable the catch-all feature until you deactivate the forwarding or you can simply select another mailbox to be the catch-all one.
Catch-all Emails in Semi-dedicated Servers
You will be able to create a catch-all address with no more than a click if you have a semi-dedicated hosting plan with our company and your email messages are handled by our cloud hosting platform. All the email addresses that you create using any domain hosted in the semi-dedicated hosting account will be enumerated in the Hepsia hosting Control Panel’s Email Manager section. Each of them will have a mini "Catch-all" icon on its right-hand side, so all it will take to activate this functionality will be to click on that icon. In the exact same manner you’ll be able to remove the feature, in case you no longer need it. Our system will let you know in case you’re attempting to activate a second catch-all address for a specific domain or if there is activated email forwarding, but it’ll never modify or disable any feature automatically or without your permission.
