A catch-all e-mailbox is one that gathers all the messages sent to non-existent addresses. For example, if your address is info@domain.com, but somebody miswrites it and sends an email message to inof@domain.com, it will still be received in the catch-all mailbox that you have created. Only one single mailbox per domain name can have this feature activated and in this way you will never miss emails because the other party has an obsolete email address or has made a spelling error. The downside of having a catch-all mailbox is that you may start receiving lots of spam emails, but this issue can be solved using anti-spam filtering software. It’s also important to bear in mind that a mailbox with an activated catch-all feature cannot forward incoming emails to a third-party mailbox.
Catch-all Emails in Web Hosting
In case you have a Linux web hosting with our company and you want to enable the catch-all option for a specific e-mailbox that you have in your account, it will take literally just one click in the Email Manager section of your Hepsia Control Panel to do that. A catch-all button is available on the right side of each email address that you have set up under any domain registered in your account. You can pick one email address per domain by clicking the respective button. This will activate the feature instantaneously, so all email messages sent to miswritten addresses will be re-sent there. Clicking the button for a second time will disable the catch-all feature. If you have enabled email forwarding, our system will exhibit a cautionary note and you will not be able to enable the catch-all feature until you disable the forwarding or you can simply pick another mailbox to be the catch-all one.
Catch-all Emails in Semi-dedicated Hosting
A catch-all address can be created with several clicks in case you have a semi-dedicated hosting package with our company. The semi-dedicated account will be administered through our in-house created Hepsia Control Panel and you’ll be able to create mailboxes with any domain hosted there. To activate the catch-all feature for a certain mailbox, you’ll have to click the logo with the same name, which will be to the right of each email address. Deactivating this functionality can be done in the exact same manner and will not require more than a click either. In case a catch-all mailbox has already been activated for a certain domain, you will get a warning notice. The same goes if the mailbox that you wish to be a catch-all one has email forwarding activated, as our system will never disable or alter anything automatically.
