A catch-all mailbox is one that collects all the email messages sent to non-existent email addresses. For example, if your email 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 set up. Only one single mailbox per domain can have this feature enabled and in this way you will never miss messages because the other side has an outdated address or has made a spelling error. The disadvantage of having a catch-all mailbox is that you may start receiving lots of unsolicited emails, but this issue can be fixed using anti-spam protection software. It is also vital to know that a mailbox with an enabled catch-all feature cannot redirect incoming messages to a 3rd-party email address.
Catch-all Emails in Cloud Hosting
Creating a catch-all e-mailbox will be pretty easy if you have a Linux cloud hosting with our company. You can activate the feature through our powerful, albeit easy-to-work-with Email Manager tool, which is an integral part of the Hepsia Control Panel, via which you’ll administer the web hosting account itself. You will see all the email addresses that you’ve set up enumerated in alphabetical order and to the right of each one of them there will be a small-size "Catch-all" icon, which will immediately tell you whether a specific mailbox gets all the email messages for a given domain or not. With one click on the icon you can activate or deactivate this feature whenever you like. In case there’s activated email forwarding or if another mailbox has already been configured as a catch-all one for a certain domain, you will receive a warning from our system. The latter won’t replace/deactivate anything automatically and without your consent.
Catch-all Emails in Semi-dedicated Hosting
The in-house built Hepsia Control Panel that comes with each and every semi-dedicated server package that we’re offering will allow you to configure a catch-all mailbox easily even if 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 to the right of each mailbox that you’ve created using your domain names in the Email Manager section of the Control Panel. Since you can have only one single mailbox with this feature per domain name, our system will let you know if you have already configured another catch-all mailbox or if the one that you wish to use has email forwarding enabled. If you decide that you do not need the feature any longer, you can remove it by clicking once again on the exact same icon. The Email Manager section will also allow you to view your catch-all mailboxes at a glance.
