A catch-all e-mailbox is one that gathers all the messages sent to non-existent addresses. For example, if your email address is info@domain.com, but someone miswrites 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 will never miss messages because the other side has an obsolete email address or has made a typo. The drawback of setting up a catch-all mailbox is that you may start receiving plenty of junk email messages, but this issue can be rectified using anti-spam protection software. It’s also important to remember that a mailbox with an enabled catch-all feature cannot forward inbound emails to a third-party mailbox.
Catch-all Emails in Shared Hosting
If you’ve got a Linux shared hosting package with us and you wish to activate the catch-all option for a given email mailbox that you’ve got in your account, it will take literally just one mouse click in the Email Manager section of your Hepsia hosting Control Panel to do this. A catch-all button is available on the right side of each email address that you have created under any domain hosted in the account. You can select one single address per domain name by clicking the respective button. This will activate the feature straight away, so all emails sent to misspelled addresses will be re-sent there. Clicking the button once again will deactivate the catch-all feature. In case you have enabled email forwarding, our system will exhibit a cautionary notification and you won’t be able to activate the catch-all feature until you disable the forwarding or you can simply select another mailbox to be the catch-all one.
Catch-all Emails in Semi-dedicated Hosting
You’ll be able to configure a catch-all address with no more than a click if you’ve got a Linux semi-dedicated package with us and your emails are handled by our cloud hosting platform. All the mailboxes that you create with any domain hosted in your semi-dedicated account will be displayed 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 that icon. In the exact same way you’ll be able to remove the feature, if you do not need it anymore. Our system will notify you if you’re attempting to enable a 2nd catch-all address for a particular domain or if there’s activated email forwarding, but it will never deactivate or alter anything automatically and without your permission.
