A catch-all email mailbox is one that gathers all the messages sent to non-existent email 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 configured. Just one single mailbox per domain name can have this feature activated and thus you’ll never miss emails because the other side has an out-of-date email address or has made a mistake. The downside of creating a catch-all mailbox is that you may begin receiving lots of junk emails, but this issue can be fixed by using an anti-spam filtering solution. It’s also crucial to remember that a mailbox with an active catch-all feature cannot redirect incoming email messages to a third-party mailbox.
Catch-all Emails in Shared Web Hosting
Configuring a catch-all e-mailbox will be really easy if you have a shared web hosting plan with us. You can enable the feature through our powerful, yet easy-to-use Email Manager, which is an essential part of the Hepsia Control Panel, via which you’ll manage the hosting account itself. You’ll see all the email addresses that you have set up listed alphabetically and on the right side of each of them there will be a tiny "Catch-all" icon, which will instantly inform you whether a specific mailbox receives all the messages pertaining to a certain domain name or not. With a single click on the icon you can enable or disable this option whenever you wish. In case there’s enabled email forwarding or if a different mailbox has already been set up as a catch-all one for a specific domain name, you will get a warning notice from our system. The latter will not replace/disable anything automatically or without your consent.
Catch-all Emails in Semi-dedicated Servers
A catch-all email address can be configured with several clicks of the mouse in case you have a Linux semi-dedicated hosting plan with us. The semi-dedicated account will be administered via our custom-built Hepsia hosting Control Panel and you’ll be able to create email addresses under any domain name registered there. To enable the catch-all option for a certain mailbox, you will need to click the button with the same name, which will be to the right of each mailbox. Disabling this functionality can be accomplished in the exact same fashion and will not require more than one click either. If the catch-all option has already been activated for a particular domain name, you will receive a notification. The same goes if the mailbox that you wish to be a catch-all one has email forwarding activated, as our system will never change or deactivate any feature automatically.
