A catch-all e-mailbox is one that captures all the messages sent to nonexistent addresses. For example, if your email address is info@domain.com, but someone 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 messages because the other party has an obsolete email address or has made a spelling mistake. The negative aspect of setting up a catch-all mailbox is that you may begin receiving lots of unsolicited email messages, but this problem can be fixed using an anti-spam filtering solution. It’s also vital to keep in mind that a mailbox with an active catch-all functionality cannot forward incoming messages to a 3rd-party mailbox.
Catch-all Emails in Website Hosting
You’ll be able to create a catch-all mailbox with ease in case you have a website hosting account with our company. The Email Manager in our in-house built Hepsia hosting Control Panel is full-featured, yet astonishingly simple to use, and it will permit you to activate various features, including the catch-all one, with only a couple of clicks of the mouse. All the mailboxes that you’ve got will be enumerated in alphabetical order in this section and to the right of each one you will see a mini "Catch-all" icon. Clicking it once will enable this option, clicking on it once more will deactivate it. As you can have just one such mailbox per domain name, our system will alert you if you’ve already got another mailbox with this feature activated or if you have enabled email forwarding.
Catch-all Emails in Semi-dedicated Hosting
The catch-all option can be enabled with ease in case you have a semi-dedicated server plan with us. All the email addresses that you’ve created with the domain names hosted in the account will be shown in the Hepsia hosting Control Panel’s Email Manager section and you will notice a small logo handily situated directly next to each of them. With just a mouse click, you can activate or deactivate the catch-all option for any mailbox of your choice on the condition that there isn't another mailbox under the same domain with this option already activated and there isn't enabled email forwarding. Instead, you can right-click on a mailbox and enable this feature using the contextual menu that will come into view. If any of the requirements for creating a catch-all mailbox is not met, our system will warn you, but will not deactivate or replace anything automatically.
