A catch-all e-mailbox is one that gathers all the messages sent to non-existent addresses. For instance, if your email 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. Just one mailbox per domain name can have this feature enabled and thus you’ll never miss messages because the other side has an outdated email address or has made a typo. The negative aspect of configuring a catch-all mailbox is that you may begin receiving plenty of spam messages, but this problem can be rectified using anti-spam protection software. It is also vital to know that a mailbox with an activated catch-all feature cannot forward incoming email messages to a 3rd-party address.
Catch-all Emails in Shared Web Hosting
You’ll be able to set up a catch-all email mailbox easily if you have a shared web hosting plan with our company. The Email Manager tool in our custom-built Hepsia Control Panel is full-featured, yet really easy to use, and it will permit you to activate various features, including the catch-all one, with only a few mouse clicks. All the email addresses that you have set up will be displayed in alphabetical order in this section and on the right side of each one you will find a tiny "Catch-all" icon. Clicking on it once will enable this option, clicking on it once more will disable it. Since you can have just one such mailbox per domain name, our system will inform you if you’ve already got another mailbox with this option enabled or if you have active email forwarding.
Catch-all Emails in Semi-dedicated Hosting
You will be able to create a catch-all email address with no more than one click in case you have a Linux semi-dedicated package with us and your email messages are handled by our cloud platform. All the addresses that you create with any domain hosted in your semi-dedicated account will be listed in the Hepsia Control Panel’s Email Manager section. Each of them will have a mini "Catch-all" icon on its right-hand side, so all it will take to activate this feature will be to click on that icon. In the very same fashion you’ll be able to deactivate the feature, in case you do not need it anymore. Our system will inform you in case you are attempting to enable a 2nd catch-all email address for a particular domain or if there’s active email forwarding, but it will never alter or deactivate anything automatically and without your approval.
