A catch-all e-mailbox is one that gathers all the messages sent to nonexistent email addresses. For instance, if your email 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 created. Just one single mailbox per domain name can have this feature activated and in this way you’ll never miss messages because the other side has an out-of-date address or has made a typo. The disadvantage of setting up a catch-all mailbox is that you may begin receiving a lot of junk email messages, but this issue can be solved using anti-spam protection software. It is also vital to know that a mailbox with an activated catch-all feature cannot forward inbound emails to a third-party email address.
Catch-all Emails in Web Hosting
Creating a catch-all mailbox will be really easy in case you’ve got a web hosting plan with us. You can enable the feature through our advanced, albeit easy-to-use Email Manager tool, which is included in the Hepsia hosting Control Panel, via which you will administer the account itself. You’ll find all the mailboxes that you’ve set up displayed in alphabetical order and next to each one there will be a mini "Catch-all" icon, which will quickly inform you if a certain mailbox stores all the email messages associated with a given domain name or not. With one click on the icon you can enable or disable the feature at any time. In case there is active email forwarding or if a different mailbox has already been configured as a catch-all one for a specific domain name, you’ll get a warning note from our system. The latter won’t disable/replace anything automatically and without your consent.
Catch-all Emails in Semi-dedicated Servers
A catch-all address can be created with a few mouse clicks if you’ve got a semi-dedicated plan with our company. The semi-dedicated account will be administered via our custom Hepsia hosting Control Panel and you’ll be able to set up email addresses under any domain name registered there. To activate the catch-all feature for a specific mailbox, you’ll need to click on the icon with the same name, which will be on the right-hand side of each mailbox. Disabling this feature can be done in the very same fashion and will not take more than a click either. If the catch-all feature has already been enabled for a certain domain name, you will receive a warning alert. The same is valid if the mailbox that you would like to be a catch-all one has email forwarding enabled, as our system will never replace or disable any feature automatically.
