A catch-all email mailbox is one that gathers all the messages sent to inactive addresses. For example, if your email address is info@domain.com, but someone miswrites it and sends an email message to inof@domain.com, it will still be received in the catch-all mailbox that you have set up. Just one single mailbox per domain name can have this feature activated and thus you’ll never miss messages because the other side has an out-of-date address or has made a typographical error. The negative aspect of using a catch-all mailbox is that you may begin receiving plenty of spam emails, but this issue can be rectified using anti-spam protection software. It is also important to know that a mailbox with an enabled catch-all functionality cannot forward inbound messages to a third-party email address.
Catch-all Emails in Shared Website Hosting
You’ll be able to create a catch-all email mailbox without any effort in case you’ve got a shared website hosting account with us. The Email Manager tool in our in-house developed Hepsia hosting Control Panel is fully featured, yet astonishingly user-friendly, and it will enable you to activate different features, including the catch-all one, with just several clicks of the mouse. All the mailboxes that you’ve created will be displayed alphabetically in this section and on the right side of each one you will see a small "Catch-all" sign. Clicking on it once will activate this feature, clicking it twice will disable it. As you can have only one such mailbox per domain, our system will warn you if you’ve already got another one with this option activated or if you’ve got enabled email forwarding.
Catch-all Emails in Semi-dedicated Servers
You will be able to configure a catch-all address with no more than one click if you’ve got a semi-dedicated plan with us and your email messages are handled by our cloud hosting platform. All the mailboxes that you set up with any domain hosted in your account will be listed in the Hepsia Control Panel’s Email Manager section. Each of them will have a small "Catch-all" icon on its right-hand side, so all it will take to enable the feature will be to click that icon. In the very same manner you will be able to disable the feature, if you don’t need it any longer. Our system will let you know if you’re trying to enable a second catch-all mailbox for a given domain name or if there is enabled email forwarding, but it will never disable or change anything automatically and without your approval.
