A catch-all mailbox is one that collects all the email messages sent to invalid addresses. For example, if your address is info@domain.com, but someone misspells it and sends a 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per domain can have this feature activated and in this way you will never miss emails because the other party has an out-of-date email address or has made a spelling error. The disadvantage of creating a catch-all mailbox is that you may start receiving plenty of unsolicited messages, but this problem can be solved by using anti-spam protection software. It’s also crucial to keep in mind that a mailbox with an enabled catch-all functionality cannot forward incoming email messages to a third-party address.
Catch-all Emails in Website Hosting
In case you have a website hosting service with us and you would like to activate the catch-all feature for a given email mailbox that you have in your hosting account, it’ll take literally just a single mouse click in the Email Manager section of your Hepsia hosting Control Panel to accomplish this. A catch-all button is available to the right of each and every email address that you have created under any domain name registered in the account. You can select one address per domain by clicking on the corresponding button. This will activate the feature right away, so all email messages sent to misspelled email addresses will be re-sent there. Clicking the button once more will disable the catch-all feature. If you have enabled email forwarding, our system will display a warning message and you will not be able to activate the catch-all feature unless you delete the forwarding or you can simply pick a different mailbox to be the catch-all one.
Catch-all Emails in Semi-dedicated Servers
The in-house developed Hepsia Control Panel that comes with each semi-dedicated server package that we’re offering will allow you to create a catch-all mailbox effortlessly even in case you don’t have much web/email hosting experience. All it takes to accomplish that is to click the catch-all icon, which will be on the right side of each email address that you’ve set up using your domains in the hosting Control Panel’s Email Manager section. Since you can have just one single mailbox with this feature per domain, our system will notify you if you’ve already created another catch-all mailbox or if the one that you wish to use has email forwarding enabled. If you decide that you don’t want the feature anymore, you can disable it by clicking again on the same icon. The Email Manager will also permit you to see your catch-all mailboxes at a glance.
