A catch-all email mailbox is one that captures all the emails sent to non-existent email addresses. For instance, 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 created. Just one single mailbox per domain can have this feature activated and in this way you will never miss messages because the other side has an outdated email address or has made a typographical error. The negative aspect of having a catch-all mailbox is that you may begin receiving lots of unsolicited email messages, but this issue can be rectified by using an anti-spam filtering solution. It is also vital to remember that a mailbox with an activated catch-all functionality cannot redirect incoming emails to a 3rd-party address.
Catch-all Emails in Website Hosting
In case you’ve got a website hosting with us and you’d like to activate the catch-all functionality for a specific email mailbox that you have in your hosting account, it’ll take literally just a single click of the mouse in the Email Manager section of your Hepsia Control Panel to do this. A catch-all button is available on the right side of each email address that you have set up under any domain hosted in the account. You can select one single email address per domain by clicking the corresponding button. This will activate the feature immediately, so all messages sent to miswritten email addresses will be received there. Clicking on the button again will deactivate the catch-all feature. In case you have enabled email forwarding, our system will exhibit a warning notice and you won’t be able to activate the catch-all feature till you deactivate the forwarding or you can simply select a different mailbox to be the catch-all one.
Catch-all Emails in Semi-dedicated Servers
You will be able to set up a catch-all address with no more than a click in case you’ve got a semi-dedicated server with our company and your email messages are handled by our cloud web hosting platform. All the email addresses that you set up using any domain name hosted in your semi-dedicated account will be displayed in the Hepsia Control Panel’s Email Manager section. Each of them will have a small "Catch-all" icon next to it, so all it will take to enable this feature will be to click on that icon. In the exact same fashion you will be able to disable the feature, in case you don’t need it anymore. Our system will notify you in case you’re attempting to activate a 2nd catch-all mailbox for a particular domain or if there is activated email forwarding, but it’ll never alter or deactivate anything automatically and without your approval.
