A catch-all e-mailbox is one that collects all the email messages sent to invalid addresses. For instance, if your 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 created. Only one single mailbox per domain name can have this feature activated and in this way you will never miss messages because the other party has an obsolete address or has made a spelling mistake. The downside of using a catch-all mailbox is that you may begin receiving plenty of unsolicited bulk email messages, but this issue can be solved by using anti-spam protection software. It’s also important to bear in mind that a mailbox with an active catch-all feature cannot redirect incoming emails to a 3rd-party email address.
Catch-all Emails in Shared Hosting
In case you’ve got a Linux shared hosting with us and you would like to activate the catch-all option for a certain e-mailbox that you have in your 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 this. A catch-all button is available on the right side of each and every email address that you have created under any domain hosted in your account. You can choose one email address per domain name by clicking on the respective button. This will enable the feature immediately, so all emails sent to mistyped addresses will be delivered there. Clicking the button once again will turn off the catch-all feature. In case you’ve got active email forwarding, our system will display a cautionary note and you won’t be able to enable the catch-all feature unless you deactivate the forwarding or you can simply choose a different mailbox to be the catch-all one.
Catch-all Emails in Semi-dedicated Servers
You will be able to configure a catch-all email address with no more than one click if you have a semi-dedicated server with our company and your emails are handled by our cloud platform. All the mailboxes that you set up using any domain hosted in your semi-dedicated hosting account will be enumerated in the Hepsia Control Panel’s Email Manager section. Each of them will have a mini "Catch-all" icon on its right-hand side, so all it will take to enable this feature will be to click that icon. In the same way you will be able to remove the feature, if you don’t need it any longer. Our system will let you know if you are trying to enable a 2nd catch-all address for a given domain or if there’s enabled email forwarding, but it’ll never modify or deactivate any feature automatically and without your approval.
