A catch-all email mailbox is one that gathers all the messages sent to inactive addresses. For instance, if your email address is info@domain.com, but somebody miswrites it and sends an email message to inof@domain.com, it will still be received in the catch-all mailbox that you have configured. Just one single mailbox per domain name can have this feature activated and thus you will never miss emails because the other party has an obsolete address or has made a typo. The disadvantage of configuring a catch-all mailbox is that you may begin receiving lots of spam messages, but this problem can be resolved by using anti-spam filtering software. It’s also crucial to know that a mailbox with an active catch-all feature cannot redirect incoming emails to a 3rd-party mailbox.
Catch-all Emails in Cloud Web Hosting
If you host a domain name on our cloud hosting platform and you have a cloud web hosting account, you will be able to activate the catch-all feature for any e-mailbox that you set up under the domain name. The Email Manager section of the Hepsia Control Panel offers quite a lot of features, but it is incredibly user-friendly, so setting up a catch-all mailbox requires just one click. All the email addresses that you have will be displayed in this section in alphabetical order and you’ll simply need to click on the "Catch-all" button pertaining to the specific email address. Our system will warn you if there’s already another catch-all mailbox activated for that domain or if the one that you want to be a catch-all mailbox has email forwarding activated, so you can either deactivate the latter feature or choose a different mailbox. Disabling the catch-all option is just as easy and takes yet another mouse click on the same button.
Catch-all Emails in Semi-dedicated Hosting
You’ll be able to configure a catch-all email address with no more than a click in case you have a Linux semi-dedicated package with us and your emails are handled by our cloud platform. All the addresses that you set up using any domain hosted in your semi-dedicated account will be shown in the Hepsia Control Panel’s Email Manager section. Each of them will have a small-size "Catch-all" icon next to it, so all it will take to activate this functionality will be to click on that icon. In the very same fashion you’ll be able to disable the feature, if you no longer need it. Our system will warn you if you’re trying to enable a second catch-all address for a specific domain name or in case there’s activated email forwarding, but it’ll never deactivate or alter any feature automatically or without your approval.
