A catch-all email mailbox is one that gathers all the email messages sent to nonexistent addresses. For instance, 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 created. Only one mailbox per domain can have this feature activated and thus you’ll never miss messages because the other side has an outdated address or has made a spelling error. The disadvantage of having a catch-all mailbox is that you may begin receiving plenty of unsolicited bulk emails, but this issue can be resolved by using anti-spam protection software. It’s also crucial to remember that a mailbox with an enabled catch-all functionality cannot redirect incoming email messages to a third-party mailbox.
Catch-all Emails in Shared Web Hosting
In case you have a Linux shared web hosting service with us and you’d like to activate the catch-all functionality for a specific mailbox that you’ve got in your web hosting account, it will take literally just a click of the mouse in the Email Manager section of your Hepsia hosting Control Panel to do that. A catch-all button is available to the right of each email address that you have created under any domain registered in the account. You can select one email address per domain name by clicking the corresponding button. This will enable the feature momentarily, so all messages sent to miswritten email addresses will be re-sent there. Clicking on the button once again will deactivate the catch-all feature. If you have activated email forwarding, our system will exhibit a cautionary notice and you will not be able to activate the catch-all feature till you delete the forwarding or you can simply select some other mailbox to be the catch-all one.
Catch-all Emails in Semi-dedicated Hosting
You will be able to create a catch-all address with no more than a click in case you have a Linux semi-dedicated hosting service with our company and your emails are handled by our cloud platform. All the mailboxes that you set up using any domain name hosted in the semi-dedicated hosting account will be shown in the Hepsia hosting Control Panel’s Email Manager section. Each of them will have a small "Catch-all" icon next to it, so all it will take to enable this feature will be to click on that icon. In the exact same way you’ll be able to disable the feature, in case you don’t need it anymore. Our system will warn you in case you’re attempting to activate a 2nd catch-all address for a given domain or in case there’s active email forwarding, but it’ll never deactivate or alter any feature automatically and without your approval.
