A catch-all e-mailbox is one that collects all the emails sent to non-existent email addresses. For instance, if your email 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 created. Just one mailbox per domain can have this feature enabled and thus you’ll never miss emails because the other side has an out-of-date address or has made a typographical error. The negative aspect of using a catch-all mailbox is that you may start receiving plenty of unsolicited messages, but this issue can be fixed using anti-spam filtering software. It’s also crucial to bear in mind that a mailbox with an activated catch-all functionality cannot redirect incoming emails to a third-party mailbox.
Catch-all Emails in Cloud Web Hosting
If you’ve got a cloud web hosting with our company and you wish to activate the catch-all option for a given e-mailbox that you’ve got in your account, it’ll take literally only one single click of the mouse in the Email Manager section of your Hepsia Control Panel to do this. A catch-all button is available on the right-hand side of each and every email address that you have set up under any domain hosted in the account. You can select one single email address per domain by clicking on the corresponding button. This will activate the feature straight away, so all emails sent to misspelled addresses will be received there. Clicking the button once more will disable the catch-all feature. In case you have active email forwarding, our system will exhibit a cautionary message and you won’t be able to activate the catch-all feature till you remove the forwarding or you can simply select some other mailbox to be the catch-all one.
Catch-all Emails in Semi-dedicated Servers
The catch-all functionality can be enabled without any effort if you have a semi-dedicated server plan with our company. All the email addresses that you have created using the domains hosted in the account will be listed in the Email Manager section of your Hepsia Control Panel and you’ll see a small logo conveniently situated right next to each one. With just a single click of the mouse, you can activate or deactivate the catch-all option for any mailbox of your choosing provided that there isn't another mailbox under that same domain with the option already activated and there isn't enabled email forwarding. Instead, you can right-click on a mailbox and enable this feature using the context menu that will pop up. In case any of the conditions for configuring a catch-all mailbox is not matched, our system will notify you, but will not replace or deactivate anything automatically.
