A catch-all mailbox is one that gathers all the email messages sent to invalid addresses. For example, if your email address is info@domain.com, but somebody mistypes it and sends an email message to inof@domain.com, it will still be received in the catch-all mailbox that you have created. Only one single mailbox per domain name can have this feature activated and thus you’ll never miss messages because the other party has an obsolete email address or has made a spelling mistake. The disadvantage of using a catch-all mailbox is that you may begin receiving lots of spam, but this problem can be resolved using anti-spam protection software. It’s also essential to remember that a mailbox with an activated catch-all feature cannot redirect incoming email messages to a 3rd-party email address.
Catch-all Emails in Shared Hosting
Creating a catch-all mailbox will be very easy if you have a Linux shared package with our company. You can activate this option through our powerful, albeit user-friendly Email Manager tool, which is included in the Hepsia Control Panel, via which you’ll manage the shared web hosting account itself. You will see all the mailboxes that you have created listed alphabetically and on the right-hand side of each one of them there will be a small "Catch-all" icon, which will instantaneously notify you if a certain mailbox stores all the messages pertaining to a certain domain or not. With a single mouse click on the icon you can activate or deactivate the feature at any moment. If there’s activated email forwarding or if a different mailbox has already been set up as a catch-all one for a certain domain, you will receive a notification from our system. The latter won’t disable/replace anything automatically and without your approval.
Catch-all Emails in Semi-dedicated Hosting
You’ll be able to create a catch-all email address with no more than a click in case you’ve got a Linux semi-dedicated hosting package with us and your email messages are handled by our cloud web hosting platform. All the addresses that you create with any domain hosted in the account will be enumerated in the Email Manager section of your Hepsia Control Panel. Each of them will have a mini "Catch-all" icon next to it, so all it will take to enable this functionality will be to click on that icon. In the same fashion you will be able to turn off the feature, if you no longer need it. Our system will let you know in case you’re trying to activate a 2nd catch-all email address for a particular domain name or if there is active email forwarding, but it will never disable or change anything automatically or without your permission.
