A catch-all e-mailbox is one that gathers all the emails sent to nonexistent addresses. For instance, if your address is info@domain.com, but somebody mistypes it and sends an email 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 activated and in this way you will never miss emails because the other side has an obsolete address or has made a typo. The drawback of configuring a catch-all mailbox is that you may start receiving a lot of junk messages, but this issue can be solved using an anti-spam filtering solution. It is also crucial to bear in mind that a mailbox with an active catch-all functionality cannot redirect inbound email messages to a 3rd-party mailbox.
Catch-all Emails in Shared Website Hosting
Setting up a catch-all email mailbox will be stunningly easy if you’ve got a Linux shared website hosting with us. You can enable this feature through our advanced, albeit easy-to-use Email Manager tool, which is part of the Hepsia Control Panel, via which you will administer the shared web hosting account itself. You will find all the mailboxes that you have set up enumerated alphabetically and on the right side of each one of them there will be a small "Catch-all" icon, which will instantaneously inform you if a certain mailbox gets all the email messages pertaining to a given domain name or not. With a single mouse click on the icon you can activate or deactivate this feature at any time. If there’s activated email forwarding or if a different mailbox has already been set up as a catch-all one for a certain domain name, you will get a warning text message from our system. The latter won’t replace/disable anything automatically and without your approval.
Catch-all Emails in Semi-dedicated Hosting
The catch-all option can be enabled without difficulty in case you’ve got a semi-dedicated server plan with our company. All the email addresses that you’ve set up with the domains hosted in the semi-dedicated server account will be shown in the Email Manager section of your Hepsia hosting Control Panel and you’ll see a small-size icon conveniently located right next to each one. With just a single click, you can enable or disable the catch-all option for any mailbox of your liking provided that there isn't another mailbox under the same domain name with the option already activated and there isn't active email forwarding. Instead, you can right-click on an email address and activate this option through the menu that will appear. In case any of the conditions for creating a catch-all mailbox is not satisfied, our system will inform you, but will not replace or deactivate anything automatically.
