A catch-all email mailbox is one that captures all the messages sent to nonexistent email addresses. For example, if your address is info@domain.com, but someone misspells it and sends an email message to inof@domain.com, it will still be received in the catch-all mailbox that you have created. Just one mailbox per domain name can have this feature activated and thus you’ll never miss messages because the other side has an outdated address or has made a mistake. The drawback of using a catch-all mailbox is that you may start receiving lots of unsolicited messages, but this problem can be rectified using an anti-spam filtering solution. It is also important to remember that a mailbox with an active catch-all functionality cannot forward inbound emails to a third-party mailbox.
Catch-all Emails in Web Hosting
You will be able to create a catch-all mailbox without any effort in case you have a web hosting account with our company. The Email Manager in our custom-created Hepsia hosting Control Panel is feature-loaded, yet remarkably user-friendly, and it will enable you to enable different options, including the catch-all one, with only a couple of clicks. All the email addresses that you’ve got will be shown alphabetically in this section and next to each one you will notice a tiny "Catch-all" symbol. Clicking it once will activate the feature, clicking it for a second time will disable it. Since you can have just one such mailbox per domain, our system will alert you if you’ve already got a different mailbox with this feature activated or if you’ve got active email forwarding.
Catch-all Emails in Semi-dedicated Hosting
The catch-all feature can be enabled without difficulty if you’ve got a semi-dedicated server plan with us. All the email addresses that you’ve created using the domain names hosted in the semi-dedicated account will be displayed in the Hepsia Control Panel’s Email Manager section and you will find a small-size sign conveniently located right next to each of them. With only a single click, you can activate or deactivate the catch-all option for any mailbox of your liking on the condition that there isn't another mailbox under the same domain name with the option already activated and there isn't active email forwarding. Instead, you can right-click on a mailbox and enable this option using the contextual menu that will appear. In case any of the prerequisites for creating a catch-all mailbox is not satisfied, our system will notify you, but will not replace or disable anything automatically.
