A catch-all e-mailbox is one that collects all the email messages sent to inactive email addresses. For instance, if your email address is info@domain.com, but somebody misspells it and sends a message to inof@domain.com, it will still be received in the catch-all mailbox that you have set up. Only one mailbox per domain can have this feature enabled and in this way you’ll never miss emails because the other party has an out-of-date email address or has made a spelling error. The negative aspect of creating a catch-all mailbox is that you may start receiving lots of spam messages, but this problem can be resolved using anti-spam protection software. It’s also vital to remember that a mailbox with an activated catch-all feature cannot redirect inbound messages to a third-party email address.
Catch-all Emails in Cloud Hosting
If you have a Linux cloud hosting with our company and you’d like to enable the catch-all feature for a given mailbox that you’ve got in the web hosting account, it will take literally just one single mouse click in the Email Manager section of your Hepsia hosting Control Panel to do that. A catch-all button is available to the right of each and every email address that you have created under any domain hosted in your account. You can select one address per domain name by clicking on the corresponding button. This will enable the feature instantly, so all email messages sent to mistyped addresses will be received there. Clicking the button again will turn off the catch-all feature. If you’ve got activated email forwarding, our system will exhibit a cautionary message and you will not be able to enable the catch-all feature until you remove the forwarding or you can simply select a different mailbox to be the catch-all one.
Catch-all Emails in Semi-dedicated Hosting
You will be able to set up a catch-all address with no more than one click if you have a Linux semi-dedicated hosting with our company and your emails are handled by our cloud web hosting platform. All the addresses that you set up with any domain 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 small "Catch-all" icon on its right-hand side, so all it will take to enable this functionality will be to click on that icon. In the same manner you’ll be able to turn off the feature, in case you don’t need it any longer. Our system will inform you if you are attempting to activate a 2nd catch-all address for a particular domain name or in case there’s activated email forwarding, but it will never change or disable anything automatically or without your permission.
