A catch-all e-mailbox is one that gathers all the emails sent to invalid addresses. For instance, if your address is info@domain.com, but somebody 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. Only one single mailbox per domain name can have this feature enabled and thus you’ll never miss emails because the other party has an obsolete address or has made a typographical error. The drawback of using a catch-all mailbox is that you may start receiving a lot of unsolicited emails, but this issue can be rectified using an anti-spam filtering solution. It is also essential to remember that a mailbox with an enabled catch-all functionality cannot forward inbound email messages to a third-party email address.
Catch-all Emails in Hosting
You’ll be able to configure a catch-all e-mailbox without any difficulty if you’ve got a hosting account with us. The Email Manager in our custom-created Hepsia Control Panel is feature-laden, yet stunningly easy to work with, and it will enable you to enable various options, including the catch-all one, with just several clicks. All the email addresses that you’ve got will be listed in alphabetical order in this section and on the right-hand side of each of them you’ll find a tiny "Catch-all" symbol. Clicking it once will enable this feature, clicking it once more will deactivate it. Since you can have only one such catch-all mailbox per domain, our system will alert you if you’ve already got a different mailbox with this feature enabled or if you have active email forwarding.
Catch-all Emails in Semi-dedicated Hosting
The catch-all functionality can be activated without difficulty if you’ve got a semi-dedicated server plan with our company. All the email addresses that you’ve created with the domains hosted in the account will be listed in the Hepsia hosting Control Panel’s Email Manager section and you will notice a tiny sign conveniently situated right next to each of them. With just a click of the mouse, you can enable or disable the catch-all option for any mailbox of your choosing as long as there isn't another mailbox under the same domain name with the option already enabled and there isn't active email forwarding. Alternatively, you can right-click on an email address and enable this feature using the context menu that will appear. In case any of the requirements for creating a catch-all mailbox is not answered, our system will notify you, but will not disable or replace anything automatically.
