A catch-all mailbox is one that collects all the messages sent to inactive email addresses. For example, if your email address is info@domain.com, but someone miswrites it and sends a message to inof@domain.com, it will still be received in the catch-all mailbox that you have configured. Just one mailbox per domain name can have this feature enabled and thus you’ll never miss emails because the other party has an obsolete address or has made a spelling error. The drawback of configuring a catch-all mailbox is that you may start receiving plenty of unsolicited bulk emails, but this problem can be rectified by using an anti-spam protection solution. It is also crucial to bear in mind that a mailbox with an activated catch-all functionality cannot redirect incoming email messages to a 3rd-party address.
Catch-all Emails in Web Hosting
You’ll be able to create a catch-all email mailbox without any effort if you have a web hosting account with our company. The Email Manager tool in our custom-built Hepsia hosting Control Panel is feature-laden, yet amazingly simple to use, and it will allow you to enable various features, including the catch-all one, with only several mouse clicks. All the email addresses that you’ve got will be displayed in alphabetical order in this section and to the right of each of them you will notice a mini "Catch-all" icon. Clicking it once will activate this option, clicking it twice will disable it. As you can have just one such catch-all mailbox per domain, our system will inform you if you’ve already got a different mailbox with this feature enabled or if you have enabled email forwarding.
Catch-all Emails in Semi-dedicated Hosting
A catch-all email address can be configured with several clicks of the mouse in case you’ve got a Linux semi-dedicated hosting package with us. The hosting account will be managed via our custom-built Hepsia Control Panel and you’ll be able to create email addresses using any domain name registered here. To enable the catch-all functionality for a specific mailbox, you’ll need to click the symbol with the same name, which will be on the right side of each mailbox. Deactivating this option can be done in the exact same fashion and will not take more than one click either. In case the catch-all functionality has already been enabled for a specific domain, you will get a warning notification. The same goes if the mailbox that you would like to be a catch-all one has email forwarding enabled, as our system will never alter or deactivate anything automatically.
