A catch-all mailbox is one that gathers all the email messages sent to non-existent email addresses. For instance, if your address is info@domain.com, but someone miswrites it and sends an email to inof@domain.com, it will still be received in the catch-all mailbox that you have configured. Only one single mailbox per domain name can have this feature activated and in this way you will never miss emails because the other party has an out-of-date email address or has made a spelling mistake. The disadvantage of setting up a catch-all mailbox is that you may begin receiving lots of spam, but this issue can be rectified by using an anti-spam protection solution. It’s also essential to know that a mailbox with an active catch-all feature cannot forward incoming email messages to a 3rd-party email address.
Catch-all Emails in Shared Website Hosting
If you host a domain on our cloud hosting platform and you’ve got a shared website hosting account, you will be able to enable the catch-all functionality for any mailbox that you set up under the domain name. The Email Manager section of the Hepsia Control Panel comes with quite a lot of features, but it is unbelievably easy to work with, so creating a catch-all mailbox takes only a click of the mouse. All the email addresses that you have will be displayed in this section in alphabetical order and you’ll only need to click the "Catch-all" button pertaining to the particular email address. Our system will inform you if there is already another catch-all mailbox activated for that domain name or if the one that you want to be a catch-all mailbox has email forwarding enabled, so you can either turn off the latter feature or choose another mailbox. Disabling the catch-all option is just as simple and takes yet another click on the exact same button.
Catch-all Emails in Semi-dedicated Hosting
The catch-all option can be activated without effort if you’ve got a semi-dedicated server account with us. All the email addresses that you have set up using the domains hosted in your semi-dedicated server account will be shown in the Email Manager section of your Hepsia hosting Control Panel and you’ll find a tiny button handily situated directly next to each one. With only one click, you can enable or disable the catch-all option for any mailbox of your choosing on the condition that there isn't another mailbox under the same domain name with this option already activated and there isn't activated email forwarding. Alternatively, you can right-click on a mailbox and enable this option using the context menu that will come into view. If any of the conditions for configuring a catch-all mailbox is not met, our system will warn you, but will not deactivate or replace anything automatically.
