A catch-all mailbox is one that gathers all the email messages sent to nonexistent email addresses. For instance, if your address is info@domain.com, but somebody misspells it and sends an email to inof@domain.com, it will still be received in the catch-all mailbox that you have configured. Only one single mailbox per domain name can have this feature activated and in this way you’ll never miss emails because the other party has an out-of-date address or has made a spelling mistake. The disadvantage of creating a catch-all mailbox is that you may start receiving a lot of unsolicited messages, but this problem can be solved using an anti-spam protection solution. It is also important to bear in mind that a mailbox with an enabled catch-all functionality cannot redirect inbound messages to a third-party mailbox.
Catch-all Emails in Cloud Website Hosting
In case you have a Linux cloud website hosting package with our company and you wish to enable the catch-all option for a particular email mailbox that you’ve got in the hosting account, it will take literally only one click in the Email Manager section of your Hepsia Control Panel to do this. A catch-all button is available next to each email address that you have created under any domain registered in your account. You can select one single email address per domain by clicking the corresponding button. This will enable the feature instantaneously, so all messages sent to mistyped addresses will be re-sent there. Clicking the button once more will deactivate the catch-all feature. In case you have active email forwarding, our system will display a cautionary note and you will not be able to enable the catch-all feature till you deactivate the forwarding or you can simply pick some other mailbox to be the catch-all one.
Catch-all Emails in Semi-dedicated Hosting
You will be able to create a catch-all email address with no more than a click in case you have a Linux semi-dedicated package with us and your email messages are handled by our cloud hosting platform. All the mailboxes that you set up with any domain hosted in the account will be shown in the Email Manager section of your Hepsia hosting Control Panel. Each of them will have a mini "Catch-all" icon next to it, so all it will take to enable the feature will be to click on that icon. In the very same manner you will be able to remove the feature, if you do not need it anymore. Our system will warn you in case you’re attempting to enable a second catch-all address for a specific domain name or if there’s activated email forwarding, but it’ll never disable or modify anything automatically and without your permission.
