A catch-all email mailbox is one that collects all the emails sent to inactive addresses. For example, if your email address is info@domain.com, but somebody mistypes it and sends an email message to inof@domain.com, it will still be received in the catch-all mailbox that you have created. Just one single mailbox per domain name can have this feature activated and thus you’ll never miss emails because the other side has an outdated address or has made a mistake. The downside of setting up a catch-all mailbox is that you may start receiving lots of unsolicited messages, but this problem can be solved by using anti-spam filtering software. It’s also vital to remember that a mailbox with an activated catch-all feature cannot redirect incoming emails to a 3rd-party mailbox.
Catch-all Emails in Cloud Website Hosting
You’ll be able to create a catch-all email mailbox easily in case you have a cloud website hosting plan with us. The Email Manager in our in-house created Hepsia hosting Control Panel is feature-laden, yet surprisingly simple to work with, and it will permit you to activate various options, including the catch-all one, with no more than a few clicks. All the mailboxes that you’ve created will be enumerated alphabetically in this section and to the right of each one of them you will notice a small "Catch-all" button. Clicking it once will enable the feature, clicking it again will disable it. Since you can have just one such mailbox per domain name, our system will inform you if you’ve already got another one with this option activated or if you’ve got enabled email forwarding.
Catch-all Emails in Semi-dedicated Hosting
You will be able to set up a catch-all email address with no more than a click if you’ve got a Linux semi-dedicated package with our company and your emails are handled by our cloud web hosting platform. All the email addresses that you set up using any domain hosted in the account will be displayed in the Email Manager section of your Hepsia Control Panel. Each of them will have a small-size "Catch-all" icon next to it, so all it will take to enable the feature will be to click that icon. In the same way you’ll be able to deactivate the feature, in case you do not need it anymore. Our system will notify you in case you’re attempting to activate a second catch-all address for a certain domain or if there is activated email forwarding, but it’ll never change or deactivate any feature automatically and without your consent.
