A catch-all e-mailbox is one that gathers all the email messages sent to inactive addresses. For instance, if your 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 set up. Just one mailbox per domain name can have this feature activated and in this way you’ll never miss emails because the other party has an obsolete email address or has made a spelling error. The disadvantage of configuring a catch-all mailbox is that you may start receiving plenty of junk messages, but this problem can be resolved using anti-spam filtering software. It’s also crucial to remember that a mailbox with an active catch-all functionality cannot forward incoming messages to a 3rd-party email address.
Catch-all Emails in Cloud Website Hosting
You’ll be able to set up a catch-all email mailbox with ease if you’ve got a cloud website hosting plan with us. The Email Manager in our custom-built Hepsia Control Panel is feature-laden, yet extremely easy to work with, and it will allow you to enable different features, including the catch-all one, with no more than a few clicks of the mouse. All the mailboxes that you’ve got will be displayed alphabetically in this section and on the right side of each of them you will see a tiny "Catch-all" symbol. Clicking it once will activate this option, clicking on it once more will deactivate it. Since you can have just one such mailbox per domain, our system will inform you if you’ve already got a different mailbox with this feature activated or if you have active email forwarding.
Catch-all Emails in Semi-dedicated Hosting
The catch-all option can be activated with ease if you’ve got a semi-dedicated server plan with us. All the email addresses that you have created with the domain names hosted in your semi-dedicated server account will be enumerated in the Hepsia hosting Control Panel’s Email Manager section and you’ll find a small logo conveniently located right next to each one of them. With only one mouse click, you can activate or deactivate the catch-all option for any mailbox of your preference on the condition that there isn't another mailbox under that same domain with the option already activated and there isn't activated email forwarding. Alternatively, you can right-click on a mailbox and enable this feature through the menu that will come into sight. In case any of the prerequisites for setting up a catch-all mailbox is not met, our system will notify you, but will not disable or replace anything automatically.
