A catch-all e-mailbox is one that captures all the email messages sent to inactive email addresses. For example, if your 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 mailbox per domain name can have this feature enabled and thus you will never miss emails because the other party has an outdated address or has made a spelling error. The drawback of having a catch-all mailbox is that you may start receiving a lot of spam emails, but this issue can be rectified using anti-spam filtering software. It’s also crucial to remember that a mailbox with an active catch-all functionality cannot redirect inbound messages to a third-party mailbox.
Catch-all Emails in Hosting
In case you’ve got a hosting plan with our company and you would like to enable the catch-all functionality for a certain email mailbox that you have in your hosting account, it’ll take literally just one click in the Email Manager section of your Hepsia Control Panel to accomplish that. A catch-all button is available next to each email address that you have set up under any domain hosted in the account. You can choose one single address per domain by clicking the respective button. This will activate the feature instantly, so all messages sent to misspelled addresses will be delivered there. Clicking on the button again will disable the catch-all feature. In case you have enabled email forwarding, our system will show a cautionary notice and you will not be able to enable the catch-all feature till you remove the forwarding or you can simply select some other mailbox to be the catch-all one.
Catch-all Emails in Semi-dedicated Servers
A catch-all email address can be set up with a couple of mouse clicks if you’ve got a semi-dedicated hosting plan with us. The semi-dedicated hosting account will be administered via our custom-created Hepsia hosting Control Panel and you’ll be able to create mailboxes with any domain hosted here. To enable the catch-all functionality for a particular mailbox, you will need to click on the sign with the exact same name, which will be next to each email address. Disabling this functionality can be done in the exact same manner and will not take more than one click either. In case the catch-all option has already been activated for a given domain name, you will receive a warning notice. The same goes if the mailbox that you wish to be a catch-all one has email forwarding activated, as our system will never deactivate or edit anything automatically.
