A catch-all mailbox is one that gathers all the email messages sent to invalid addresses. For instance, if your email address is info@domain.com, but someone misspells it and sends a message to inof@domain.com, it will still be received in the catch-all mailbox that you have created. Just one single mailbox per domain can have this feature enabled and in this way you’ll never miss emails because the other side has an outdated address or has made a spelling mistake. The disadvantage of using a catch-all mailbox is that you may start receiving lots of unsolicited emails, but this problem can be fixed using an anti-spam filtering solution. It’s also crucial to know that a mailbox with an enabled catch-all functionality cannot redirect inbound emails to a third-party mailbox.
Catch-all Emails in Shared Website Hosting
If you’ve got a shared website hosting service with us and you’d like to activate the catch-all feature for a specific email mailbox that you’ve got in your account, it will take literally just one click of the mouse in the Email Manager section of your Hepsia hosting Control Panel to do that. A catch-all button is available on the right side of each email address that you have created under any domain name registered in your account. You can select one single address per domain by clicking on the corresponding button. This will enable the feature straight away, so all email messages sent to miswritten email addresses will be delivered there. Clicking on the button once again will disable the catch-all feature. If you have active email forwarding, our system will display a warning note and you will not be able to activate the catch-all feature unless you deactivate the forwarding or you can simply select a different mailbox to be the catch-all one.
Catch-all Emails in Semi-dedicated Hosting
You’ll be able to create a catch-all address with no more than a click if you’ve got a Linux semi-dedicated hosting with our company and your email messages are handled by our cloud platform. All the email addresses that you set up using any domain name hosted in the semi-dedicated account will be listed in the Hepsia hosting 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 activate the feature will be to click that icon. In the exact same fashion you will be able to disable the feature, if you don’t need it anymore. Our system will let you know in case you are trying to activate a second catch-all address for a specific domain or in case there is activated email forwarding, but it will never alter or deactivate any feature automatically or without your approval.
