A catch-all mailbox is one that collects all the messages sent to invalid addresses. For instance, if your email 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 created. Just one mailbox per domain can have this feature activated and thus you will never miss messages because the other side has an out-of-date email address or has made a mistake. The downside of configuring a catch-all mailbox is that you may begin receiving a lot of junk messages, but this issue can be rectified using anti-spam protection software. It’s also important to bear in mind that a mailbox with an activated catch-all feature cannot forward incoming messages to a 3rd-party mailbox.
Catch-all Emails in Hosting
Setting up a catch-all e-mailbox will be pretty easy if you’ve got a hosting with our company. You can enable this feature through our advanced, albeit user-friendly Email Manager tool, which is an indivisible part of the Hepsia Control Panel, via which you’ll manage the hosting account itself. You will see all the mailboxes that you have set up listed in alphabetical order and to the right of each one of them there will be a small "Catch-all" icon, which will instantaneously show you whether a certain mailbox stores all the emails for a certain domain name or not. With one mouse click on the icon you can activate or deactivate this feature at any moment. If there’s activated email forwarding or in case some other mailbox has already been set up as a catch-all one for a given domain name, you will receive an alert from our system. The latter will not disable/replace anything automatically or without your approval.
Catch-all Emails in Semi-dedicated Servers
A catch-all email address can be configured with a few clicks if you’ve got a Linux semi-dedicated hosting service with our company. The semi-dedicated account will be managed through our custom-built Hepsia Control Panel and you will be able to set up email addresses with any domain hosted there. To enable the catch-all option for a given mailbox, you’ll have to click on the sign with the exact same name, which will be to the right of each mailbox. Deactivating this functionality can be done in the same manner and will not take more than a click either. In case the catch-all option has already been activated for a certain domain, you’ll receive a warning notification. The same is valid if the mailbox that you would like to be a catch-all one has email forwarding activated, as our system will never deactivate or change anything automatically.
