A catch-all email mailbox is one that collects all the email messages sent to nonexistent email addresses. For example, if your email address is info@domain.com, but someone misspells it and sends a message to inof@domain.com, it will still be received in the catch-all mailbox that you have set up. Only one single mailbox per domain can have this feature enabled and thus you’ll never miss messages because the other side has an obsolete email address or has made a spelling mistake. The downside of using a catch-all mailbox is that you may begin receiving plenty of unsolicited email messages, but this problem can be solved by using an anti-spam filtering solution. It is also essential to know that a mailbox with an active catch-all functionality cannot forward inbound messages to a 3rd-party mailbox.
Catch-all Emails in Shared Hosting
Configuring a catch-all email mailbox will be incredibly easy in case you’ve got a shared hosting service with our company. You can enable this option through our advanced, albeit easy-to-work-with Email Manager tool, which is built into the Hepsia hosting Control Panel, via which you’ll administer the shared web hosting account itself. You will see all the email addresses that you have created enumerated alphabetically and on the right-hand side of each of them there will be a small "Catch-all" icon, which will instantaneously let you know whether a specific mailbox receives all the email messages pertaining to a given domain or not. With one single mouse click on the icon you can enable or disable the feature at any moment. In case there’s activated email forwarding or in case some other mailbox has already been set up as a catch-all one for a certain domain name, you will get a warning notification from our system. The latter will not disable/replace anything automatically and without your permission.
Catch-all Emails in Semi-dedicated Servers
A catch-all address can be created with several mouse clicks in case you have a Linux semi-dedicated service with our company. The semi-dedicated hosting account will be administered through our custom-developed Hepsia Control Panel and you’ll be able to set up mailboxes with any domain registered here. To enable the catch-all functionality for a certain mailbox, you will need to click the button with the same name, which will be on the right side of each mailbox. Disabling this option can be accomplished in the exact same manner and will not take more than a click either. In case the catch-all feature has already been enabled for a specific domain name, you’ll receive a warning. 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 deactivate or change anything automatically.
