A catch-all mailbox is one that gathers all the email messages sent to invalid addresses. For instance, if your email address is info@domain.com, but somebody misspells it and sends a message 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mailbox per domain can have this feature activated and thus you will never miss messages because the other side has an outdated email address or has made a mistake. The downside of configuring a catch-all mailbox is that you may begin receiving lots of spam messages, but this issue can be solved using an anti-spam filtering solution. It’s also vital to know that a mailbox with an enabled catch-all feature cannot forward incoming messages to a 3rd-party email address.
Catch-all Emails in Cloud Web Hosting
You’ll be able to create a catch-all e-mailbox without difficulty if you’ve got a cloud web hosting plan with us. The Email Manager tool in our custom Hepsia Control Panel is full-featured, yet astonishingly easy to work with, and it will permit you to activate various features, including the catch-all one, with no more than a few mouse clicks. All the email addresses that you’ve got will be listed in alphabetical order in this section and on the right side of each one of them you’ll notice a small "Catch-all" icon. Clicking on it once will enable this feature, clicking on it once more will deactivate it. As you can have just one such mailbox per domain, our system will notify you if you’ve already got a different one with this option enabled or if you’ve got active email forwarding.
Catch-all Emails in Semi-dedicated Servers
A catch-all address can be set up with several mouse clicks if you have a semi-dedicated hosting service with our company. The semi-dedicated hosting account will be managed through our custom-developed Hepsia Control Panel and you will be able to set up mailboxes under any domain hosted there. To enable the catch-all feature for a particular mailbox, you will have to click the symbol with the exact same name, which will be on the right side of each email address. Deactivating this functionality can be achieved in the same manner and will not take more than a click either. In case a catch-all mailbox has already been activated for a specific domain name, you will get a warning alert. The same goes if the mailbox that you want to be a catch-all one has email forwarding activated, as our system will never disable or replace anything automatically.
