A catch-all email mailbox is one that collects all the emails sent to invalid email addresses. For example, if your address is info@domain.com, but someone 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. Only one mailbox per domain can have this feature activated and thus you’ll never miss messages because the other party has an out-of-date address or has made a spelling mistake. The downside of setting up a catch-all mailbox is that you may start receiving a lot of unsolicited bulk email messages, but this issue can be resolved by using anti-spam filtering software. It is also crucial to remember that a mailbox with an enabled catch-all functionality cannot forward inbound email messages to a third-party mailbox.
Catch-all Emails in Cloud Website Hosting
In case you host a domain name on our cloud hosting platform and you have a cloud website hosting account, you will be able to enable the catch-all functionality for any e-mailbox that you create under the domain name. The Hepsia Control Panel’s Email Manager section includes quite a few features, but it is stunningly intuitive, so configuring a catch-all mailbox requires just a single click of the mouse. All the email addresses that you’ve got will be listed in this section alphabetically and you will only have to click on the "Catch-all" button for the specific email address. Our system will inform you if there is already another catch-all mailbox enabled for that domain name or if the one that you want to be a catch-all mailbox has email forwarding activated, so you can either disable the latter feature or pick a different mailbox. Disabling the catch-all option is just as simple and takes one more mouse click on the same button.
Catch-all Emails in Semi-dedicated Hosting
A catch-all email address can be configured with several clicks in case you have a semi-dedicated service with us. The semi-dedicated hosting account will be administered via our custom-created Hepsia Control Panel and you’ll be able to set up email addresses under any domain name hosted there. To enable the catch-all functionality for a specific mailbox, you’ll need to click the button with the same name, which will be on the right side of each mailbox. Deactivating this feature can be done in the exact same way and will not take more than a click either. In case the catch-all functionality has already been enabled for a given domain name, you will get a warning message. The same is valid if the mailbox that you wish to be a catch-all one has email forwarding activated, as our system will never disable or modify any feature automatically.
