A catch-all mailbox is one that collects all the emails sent to non-existent email addresses. For example, if your address is info@domain.com, but somebody miswrites it and sends an email to inof@domain.com, it will still be received in the catch-all mailbox that you have created. Only one mailbox per domain can have this feature enabled and in this way you’ll never miss emails because the other side has an obsolete address or has made a spelling error. The disadvantage of using a catch-all mailbox is that you may begin receiving lots of spam email messages, but this issue can be fixed by using an anti-spam protection solution. It is also vital to bear in mind that a mailbox with an active catch-all feature cannot redirect incoming email messages to a third-party email address.
Catch-all Emails in Shared Web Hosting
If you’ve got a shared web hosting service with our company and you wish to activate the catch-all feature for a given email mailbox that you’ve got in your account, it’ll take literally only a click in the Email Manager section of your Hepsia Control Panel to accomplish that. A catch-all button is available next to each and every email address that you have set up under any domain name hosted in the account. You can select one email address per domain name by clicking the respective button. This will activate the feature right away, so all emails sent to misspelled email addresses will be received there. Clicking the button again will turn off the catch-all feature. If you have activated email forwarding, our system will exhibit a warning message and you won’t be able to enable the catch-all feature till you delete the forwarding or you can simply pick another 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 clicks in case you’ve got a Linux semi-dedicated server with our company. The semi-dedicated hosting account will be administered via our in-house created Hepsia hosting Control Panel and you’ll be able to set up email addresses using any domain registered there. To enable the catch-all feature for a specific mailbox, you will have to click the button with the exact same name, which will be to the right of each email address. Deactivating this option can be done in the very same manner and will not take more than one click either. If the catch-all option has already been activated for a specific domain name, you will get a warning alert. The same is valid if the mailbox that you’d like to be a catch-all one has email forwarding enabled, as our system will never replace or disable any feature automatically.
