A catch-all e-mailbox is one that gathers all the emails sent to non-existent email addresses. For example, if your email address is info@domain.com, but someone miswrites 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per domain can have this feature activated and in this way you will never miss emails because the other party has an outdated address or has made a typographical error. The downside of setting up a catch-all mailbox is that you may begin receiving a lot of junk email messages, but this issue can be rectified by using an anti-spam filtering solution. It is also vital to bear in mind that a mailbox with an enabled catch-all feature cannot forward inbound email messages to a 3rd-party email address.
Catch-all Emails in Cloud Web Hosting
In case you’ve got a cloud web hosting with our company and you’d like to enable the catch-all option for a certain mailbox that you have in your web hosting account, it will take literally just one single click of the mouse in the Email Manager section of your Hepsia Control Panel to accomplish this. A catch-all button is available to the right of each email address that you have set up under any domain registered in your account. You can select one single email address per domain name by clicking the corresponding button. This will activate the feature straight away, so all messages sent to misspelled email addresses will be received there. Clicking the button once again will turn off the catch-all feature. If you’ve got enabled email forwarding, our system will display a cautionary notice and you will not be able to enable the catch-all feature till you delete the forwarding or you can simply choose some other mailbox to be the catch-all one.
Catch-all Emails in Semi-dedicated Servers
You will be able to create a catch-all address with no more than one click if you have 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 displayed in the Email Manager section of your Hepsia hosting Control Panel. Each of them will have a tiny "Catch-all" icon on its right-hand side, so all it will take to enable this feature will be to click on that icon. In the same manner you’ll be able to disable the feature, if you don’t need it anymore. Our system will let you know in case you are trying to enable a 2nd catch-all email address for a particular domain name or in case there’s activated email forwarding, but it will never disable or alter any feature automatically and without your permission.
