A catch-all email mailbox is one that gathers all the email messages sent to nonexistent 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 set up. Only one mailbox per domain can have this feature enabled and in this way you will never miss messages because the other side has an obsolete email address or has made a mistake. The downside of configuring a catch-all mailbox is that you may start receiving plenty of unsolicited email messages, but this issue can be resolved using anti-spam filtering software. It’s also essential to bear in mind that a mailbox with an activated catch-all feature cannot forward inbound emails to a 3rd-party address.
Catch-all Emails in Shared Web Hosting
Setting up a catch-all mailbox will be really easy if you’ve got a shared web hosting with us. You can enable this feature through our powerful, yet easy-to-use Email Manager, which is part of the Hepsia Control Panel, via which you will administer your account. You will see all the email addresses that you have set up shown in alphabetical order and on the right side of each one of them there will be a small "Catch-all" icon, which will quickly let you know whether a specific mailbox receives all the email messages associated with a given domain or not. With one single mouse click on the icon you can activate or deactivate this option whenever you wish. If there’s activated email forwarding or if another mailbox has already been configured as a catch-all one for a specific domain, you’ll receive a notification from our system. The latter won’t replace/disable anything automatically or without your approval.
Catch-all Emails in Semi-dedicated Servers
You’ll be able to create a catch-all address with no more than one click if you’ve got a semi-dedicated server with us and your email messages are handled by our cloud hosting platform. All the addresses that you create with any domain name hosted in the account will be enumerated in the Email Manager section of your Hepsia Control Panel. Each of them will have a small "Catch-all" icon next to it, so all it will take to activate this functionality will be to click on that icon. In the exact same way you will be able to turn off the feature, if you do not need it anymore. Our system will notify you if you’re attempting to activate a second catch-all mailbox for a particular domain or if there is active email forwarding, but it will never deactivate or change any feature automatically or without your permission.
