A catch-all e-mailbox is one that gathers all the email messages sent to invalid email addresses. For example, if your email address is info@domain.com, but somebody mistypes it and sends an email to inof@domain.com, it will still be received in the catch-all mailbox that you have created. Only one mailbox per domain name can have this feature activated and thus you’ll never miss emails because the other side has an obsolete email address or has made a mistake. The disadvantage of using a catch-all mailbox is that you may begin receiving a lot 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 active catch-all feature cannot forward inbound email messages to a third-party email address.
Catch-all Emails in Cloud Web Hosting
If you host a domain on our cloud web hosting platform and you have a cloud web hosting account, you will be able to enable the catch-all functionality for any 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’s amazingly easy to work with, so creating a catch-all mailbox requires only a single click of the mouse. All the email addresses that you have created will be enumerated in this section in alphabetical order and you will only have to click the "Catch-all" button pertaining to the specific email address. Our system will warn you if there’s 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 enabled, so you can either deactivate the latter feature or pick another mailbox. Deactivating the catch-all feature is just as simple and takes yet another click on the exact same button.
Catch-all Emails in Semi-dedicated Hosting
You’ll be able to create a catch-all address with no more than a click in case you’ve got a Linux semi-dedicated package with us and your email messages are handled by our cloud hosting platform. All the email addresses that you create with any domain hosted in the semi-dedicated hosting account will be enumerated in the Hepsia Control Panel’s Email Manager section. Each of them will have a tiny "Catch-all" icon next to it, so all it will take to enable this feature will be to click that icon. In the very same manner you’ll be able to remove the feature, if you don’t need it anymore. Our system will let you know if you’re trying to activate a second catch-all address for a specific domain name or if there’s active email forwarding, but it’ll never deactivate or alter anything automatically and without your approval.
