A catch-all e-mailbox is one that captures all the email messages sent to nonexistent addresses. For instance, if your address is info@domain.com, but someone misspells it and sends an email message to inof@domain.com, it will still be received in the catch-all mailbox that you have set up. Just one single mailbox per domain can have this feature enabled and in this way you will never miss emails because the other side has an out-of-date address or has made a typographical error. The downside of having a catch-all mailbox is that you may start receiving plenty of spam, but this problem can be solved by using an anti-spam filtering solution. It’s also essential to know that a mailbox with an enabled catch-all functionality cannot redirect incoming emails to a third-party email address.
Catch-all Emails in Shared Web Hosting
Configuring a catch-all mailbox will be quite easy in case you’ve got a Linux shared web hosting service with our company. You can activate this feature through our powerful, yet intuitive Email Manager, which is integrated into the Hepsia hosting Control Panel, via which you’ll manage your hosting account. You will see all the email addresses that you have created shown in alphabetical order and to the right of each one of them there will be a small "Catch-all" icon, which will instantly tell you if a certain mailbox gets all the messages associated with a given domain name or not. With one mouse click on the icon you can activate or deactivate the feature at any moment. In case there’s activated email forwarding or in case some other mailbox has already been configured as a catch-all one for a particular domain, you will get a warning text message from our system. The latter won’t replace/deactivate anything automatically and without your consent.
Catch-all Emails in Semi-dedicated Hosting
A catch-all address can be configured with a couple of mouse clicks if you’ve got a semi-dedicated hosting service with our company. The semi-dedicated account will be managed through our custom-built Hepsia Control Panel and you will be able to create email addresses using any domain hosted here. To activate the catch-all option for a mailbox, you will need to click on the sign with the exact same name, which will be next to each mailbox. Disabling this feature can be done in the same manner and will not require more than a click either. In case the catch-all option has already been activated for a particular domain name, you’ll receive a warning text message. The same is valid if the mailbox that you’d like to be a catch-all one has email forwarding activated, as our system will never change or deactivate any feature automatically.
