A catch-all mailbox is one that collects all the messages sent to non-existent email addresses. For instance, if your email address is info@domain.com, but someone miswrites it and sends a message to inof@domain.com, it will still be received in the catch-all mailbox that you have set up. Only one single mailbox per domain name can have this feature activated and thus you’ll never miss emails because the other side has an outdated address or has made a spelling mistake. The drawback of configuring a catch-all mailbox is that you may begin receiving a lot of junk email messages, but this problem can be solved using an anti-spam protection solution. It is also important to know that a mailbox with an activated catch-all functionality cannot forward inbound email messages to a third-party mailbox.
Catch-all Emails in Shared Hosting
If you have a shared hosting with our company and you would like to activate the catch-all functionality for a certain e-mailbox that you have in the account, it will take literally only one single mouse click in the Email Manager section of your Hepsia hosting Control Panel to achieve this. A catch-all button is available next to each email address that you have set up under any domain name hosted in your account. You can select one single email address per domain by clicking on the corresponding button. This will enable the feature right away, so all email messages sent to miswritten addresses will be delivered there. Clicking on the button once again will deactivate the catch-all feature. In case you have active email forwarding, our system will display a cautionary notice and you won’t be able to activate the catch-all feature unless you disable the forwarding or you can simply choose another mailbox to be the catch-all one.
Catch-all Emails in Semi-dedicated Servers
A catch-all email address can be configured with several clicks of the mouse if you have a Linux semi-dedicated server with our company. The hosting account will be managed via our custom-created Hepsia Control Panel and you will be able to create email addresses under any domain name hosted there. To enable the catch-all feature for a particular mailbox, you’ll have to click the symbol with the exact same name, which will be on the right side of each email address. Deactivating the feature can be accomplished in the same manner and will not require more than one click either. If the catch-all feature has already been activated for a given domain name, you’ll receive a warning notification. The same goes if the mailbox that you would like to be a catch-all one has email forwarding enabled, as our system will never deactivate or edit any feature automatically.
