A catch-all e-mailbox is one that captures all the email messages sent to nonexistent email addresses. For instance, if your email address is info@domain.com, but somebody misspells it and sends an email message to inof@domain.com, it will still be received in the catch-all mailbox that you have set up. Just one single mailbox per domain can have this feature activated and in this way you’ll never miss messages because the other side has an out-of-date email address or has made a mistake. The disadvantage of using a catch-all mailbox is that you may begin receiving lots of unsolicited bulk emails, but this issue can be resolved by using an anti-spam protection solution. It’s also crucial to know that a mailbox with an active catch-all feature cannot forward inbound emails to a third-party address.
Catch-all Emails in Shared Hosting
If you host a domain name on our cloud platform and you have a shared hosting account, you’ll be able to activate the catch-all feature for any email mailbox that you create under the domain name. The Email Manager section of the Hepsia hosting Control Panel includes quite a few features, but it is surprisingly easy to work with, so creating a catch-all mailbox takes just one click of the mouse. All the email addresses that you have will be displayed in this section in alphabetical order and you’ll simply have to click on the "Catch-all" button associated with the respective address. Our system will alert you if there is already another catch-all mailbox activated 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 turn off the latter feature or choose a different mailbox. Deactivating the catch-all option is just as simple and requires one more mouse click on the exact same button.
Catch-all Emails in Semi-dedicated Hosting
You’ll be able to configure a catch-all email address with no more than a click in case you’ve got a Linux semi-dedicated hosting with our company and your email messages are handled by our cloud hosting platform. All the mailboxes that you create with any domain name hosted in the semi-dedicated account will be displayed in the Email Manager section of your Hepsia Control Panel. Each of them will have a mini "Catch-all" icon on its right-hand side, so all it will take to enable this option will be to click that icon. In the exact same fashion you’ll be able to remove the feature, if you do not need it anymore. Our system will inform you in case you are attempting to activate a 2nd catch-all email address for a certain domain or in case there’s activated email forwarding, but it’ll never disable or modify any feature automatically or without your permission.
