A catch-all email mailbox is one that gathers all the messages sent to inactive addresses. For instance, if your address is info@domain.com, but someone miswrites it and sends a message to inof@domain.com, it will still be received in the catch-all mailbox that you have set up. Just one single mailbox per domain can have this feature activated and thus you’ll never miss messages because the other party has an out-of-date email address or has made a mistake. The negative aspect of setting up a catch-all mailbox is that you may start receiving lots of junk messages, but this issue can be rectified by using an anti-spam protection solution. It’s also essential to keep in mind that a mailbox with an activated catch-all feature cannot redirect incoming messages to a third-party address.
Catch-all Emails in Web Hosting
In case you’ve got a web hosting service with our company and you want to activate the catch-all option for a given e-mailbox that you’ve got in your web hosting account, it will take literally only one mouse click in the Email Manager section of your Hepsia hosting Control Panel to accomplish that. A catch-all button is available to the right of each email address that you have created under any domain registered in the account. You can choose one single email address per domain name by clicking on the corresponding button. This will enable the feature straight away, so all email messages sent to miswritten addresses will be delivered there. Clicking on the button once more will turn off the catch-all feature. In case you have activated email forwarding, our system will display a cautionary notice and you won’t be able to enable the catch-all feature unless you delete the forwarding or you can simply pick some other mailbox to be the catch-all one.
Catch-all Emails in Semi-dedicated Servers
You’ll be able to set up a catch-all address with no more than a click in case you’ve got a Linux semi-dedicated server with us and your emails are handled by our cloud web hosting platform. All the email addresses that you set up using any domain hosted in your semi-dedicated hosting account will be displayed in the Email Manager section of your Hepsia hosting Control Panel. Each of them will have a mini "Catch-all" icon next to it, so all it will take to enable this option will be to click on that icon. In the exact same manner you will be able to deactivate the feature, if you do not need it any longer. Our system will notify you in case you are trying to enable a 2nd catch-all mailbox for a certain domain or if there is active email forwarding, but it’ll never change or disable any feature automatically or without your approval.
