A catch-all e-mailbox is one that collects all the messages sent to inactive addresses. For example, if your address is info@domain.com, but someone miswrites it and sends an email to inof@domain.com, it will still be received in the catch-all mailbox that you have configured. Only one single mailbox per domain name can have this feature enabled and in this way you’ll never miss messages because the other side has an outdated email address or has made a typo. The disadvantage of having a catch-all mailbox is that you may begin receiving lots of junk email messages, but this issue can be resolved using anti-spam filtering software. It is also crucial to keep in mind that a mailbox with an activated catch-all feature cannot redirect inbound emails to a 3rd-party address.
Catch-all Emails in Shared Web Hosting
If you have a Linux shared web hosting plan with us and you wish to activate the catch-all option for a specific e-mailbox that you’ve got in the hosting account, it will take literally only one single click in the Email Manager section of your Hepsia Control Panel to achieve that. A catch-all button is available next to each and every email address that you have created under any domain name registered in your account. You can pick one email address per domain by clicking the respective button. This will enable the feature immediately, so all emails sent to misspelled email addresses will be received there. Clicking the button once again will disable the catch-all feature. If you’ve got active email forwarding, our system will show a warning notification and you won’t be able to activate the catch-all feature until you deactivate the forwarding or you can simply select another mailbox to be the catch-all one.
Catch-all Emails in Semi-dedicated Servers
The catch-all option can be enabled without any effort if you’ve got a semi-dedicated server plan with our company. All the email addresses that you’ve set up with the domain names hosted in the account will be displayed in the Hepsia Control Panel’s Email Manager section and you’ll see a small-size button conveniently located directly next to each one. With only one mouse click, you can enable or disable the catch-all option for any mailbox of your choosing on the condition that there isn't another mailbox under the same domain with this option already activated and there isn't enabled email forwarding. Alternatively, you can right-click on a mailbox and enable this feature through the contextual menu that will come into sight. If any of the preconditions for creating a catch-all mailbox is not answered, our system will warn you, but will not replace or disable anything automatically.
