A catch-all e-mailbox is one that gathers all the email messages sent to non-existent email addresses. For example, if your address is info@domain.com, but someone misspells it and sends an email 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mailbox per domain name can have this feature enabled and thus you’ll never miss emails because the other party has an outdated address or has made a typo. The downside of having a catch-all mailbox is that you may start receiving lots of junk messages, but this problem can be solved by using anti-spam filtering software. It’s also essential to keep in mind that a mailbox with an activated catch-all functionality cannot redirect incoming email messages to a 3rd-party email address.
Catch-all Emails in Cloud Hosting
If you’ve got a Linux cloud hosting with us and you would like to enable the catch-all option for a particular e-mailbox that you have in the web hosting account, it will take literally just a single mouse click in the Email Manager section of your Hepsia Control Panel to achieve this. A catch-all button is available next to each email address that you have created under any domain registered in the account. You can pick one single email address per domain name by clicking the corresponding button. This will enable the feature immediately, so all email messages sent to mistyped email addresses will be re-sent there. Clicking the button once again will disable the catch-all feature. In case you have active email forwarding, our system will exhibit a cautionary notification and you won’t be able to activate the catch-all feature until you delete the forwarding or you can simply select a different mailbox to be the catch-all one.
Catch-all Emails in Semi-dedicated Hosting
The catch-all feature can be enabled easily in case you have a semi-dedicated server plan with us. All the email addresses that you have created with the domain names hosted in the semi-dedicated account will be displayed in the Email Manager section of your Hepsia Control Panel and you’ll notice a small-size icon handily situated directly next to each one of them. With just a single click, you can activate or deactivate the catch-all option for any mailbox of your choosing on the condition that there isn't another mailbox under that same domain with the option already enabled and there isn't enabled email forwarding. Alternatively, you can right-click on an email address and enable the feature through the contextual menu that will appear. In case any of the conditions for configuring a catch-all mailbox is not answered, our system will warn you, but will not replace or deactivate anything automatically.
