A catch-all 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 somebody miswrites 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 single mailbox per domain can have this feature activated and in this way you’ll never miss messages because the other side has an out-of-date email address or has made a spelling mistake. The negative aspect of creating a catch-all mailbox is that you may begin receiving plenty of unsolicited emails, but this issue can be resolved using anti-spam protection software. It’s also essential to keep in mind that a mailbox with an enabled catch-all feature cannot redirect incoming messages to a 3rd-party address.
Catch-all Emails in Website Hosting
In case you host a domain on our cloud platform and you have a website hosting account, you’ll be able to enable the catch-all feature for any mailbox that you create under the domain. The Hepsia Control Panel’s Email Manager section comes with quite a lot of features, but it is unbelievably simple to use, so configuring a catch-all mailbox takes only a single click. All the email addresses that you have created will be shown in this section alphabetically and you’ll simply have to click the "Catch-all" button for the given address. Our system will notify you if there is already another catch-all mailbox activated for that domain name or if the one that you would like to be a catch-all mailbox has email forwarding enabled, so you can either disable the latter feature or select a different mailbox. Disabling the catch-all feature is just as easy and requires one more mouse click on the same button.
Catch-all Emails in Semi-dedicated Hosting
The catch-all option can be enabled without difficulty in case you have a semi-dedicated server account with us. All the email addresses that you’ve created using the domain names hosted in the semi-dedicated server account will be enumerated in the Email Manager section of your Hepsia Control Panel and you will see a mini button conveniently situated directly next to each one. With just a click, you can enable or disable the catch-all option for any mailbox of your preference provided that there isn't another mailbox under the same domain name with this option already activated and there isn't enabled email forwarding. Alternatively, you can right-click on an email address and enable this feature through the contextual menu that will surface. If any of the conditions for setting up a catch-all mailbox is not met, our system will notify you, but will not replace or deactivate anything automatically.
