A catch-all e-mailbox is one that captures all the messages sent to non-existent email addresses. For instance, if your address is info@domain.com, but somebody miswrites it and sends an email 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mailbox per domain can have this feature activated and thus you’ll never miss emails because the other side has an out-of-date email address or has made a spelling mistake. The disadvantage of creating a catch-all mailbox is that you may begin receiving a lot of junk messages, but this issue can be resolved by using an anti-spam filtering solution. It is also essential to keep in mind that a mailbox with an active catch-all feature cannot forward incoming messages to a 3rd-party address.
Catch-all Emails in Shared Website Hosting
If you host a domain name on our cloud platform and you’ve got a shared website hosting account, you will be able to activate the catch-all functionality for any email mailbox that you create under the domain name. The Email Manager section of the Hepsia hosting Control Panel comes with quite a few features, but it’s surprisingly simple to work with, so creating a catch-all mailbox takes just a click. All the email addresses that you have created will be shown in this section alphabetically and you will just have to click the "Catch-all" button for the specific email address. Our system will warn you if there is already another catch-all mailbox activated for that domain name or if the one that you want to be a catch-all mailbox has email forwarding enabled, so you can either deactivate the latter feature or select another mailbox. Disabling the catch-all feature is just as simple and takes one more click on the exact same button.
Catch-all Emails in Semi-dedicated Hosting
You’ll be able to set up a catch-all email address with no more than a click in case you’ve got a Linux semi-dedicated hosting with us and your email messages are handled by our cloud web hosting platform. All the addresses that you set up using any domain name hosted in your 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 activate the feature will be to click that icon. In the same way you will be able to deactivate the feature, if you don’t need it any longer. Our system will warn you if you’re attempting to activate a second catch-all mailbox for a particular domain or in case there’s enabled email forwarding, but it will never change or deactivate any feature automatically and without your approval.
