A catch-all e-mailbox is one that collects all the email messages sent to inactive 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 set up. Only one mailbox per domain name can have this feature activated and thus you will never miss emails because the other side has an obsolete email address or has made a typo. The disadvantage of setting up a catch-all mailbox is that you may begin receiving lots of unsolicited bulk email messages, but this issue can be rectified using an anti-spam filtering solution. It is also crucial to know that a mailbox with an activated catch-all feature cannot redirect incoming messages to a third-party address.
Catch-all Emails in Website Hosting
In case you’ve got a website hosting plan with our company and you want to activate the catch-all option for a particular mailbox that you have in the account, it will take literally only one single click in the Email Manager section of your Hepsia hosting Control Panel to achieve this. A catch-all button is available on the right side of each and every email address that you have set up under any domain hosted in your account. You can select one single email address per domain by clicking the respective button. This will enable the feature straight away, so all messages sent to mistyped addresses will be delivered there. Clicking on the button once again will turn off the catch-all feature. In case you’ve got enabled email forwarding, our system will show a warning message and you will not be able to activate the catch-all feature till you deactivate the forwarding or you can simply select another mailbox to be the catch-all one.
Catch-all Emails in Semi-dedicated Servers
A catch-all email address can be created with a couple of mouse clicks in case you’ve got a semi-dedicated hosting plan with our company. The hosting account will be managed via our custom-built Hepsia hosting Control Panel and you will be able to set up email addresses under any domain name hosted here. To activate the catch-all functionality for a particular mailbox, you’ll have to click on the sign with the exact same name, which will be on the right side of each mailbox. Deactivating this functionality can be done in the same fashion and will not require more than one click either. In case the catch-all functionality has already been enabled for a certain domain, you’ll receive a warning message. The same goes if the mailbox that you wish to be a catch-all one has email forwarding enabled, as our system will never alter or disable anything automatically.
