A catch-all mailbox is one that captures all the email messages sent to nonexistent addresses. For instance, if your address is info@domain.com, but somebody misspells it and sends an email to inof@domain.com, it will still be received in the catch-all mailbox that you have created. Only one single mailbox per domain can have this feature activated and in this way you’ll never miss messages because the other party has an obsolete address or has made a mistake. The downside of having a catch-all mailbox is that you may start receiving lots of unsolicited email messages, but this issue can be rectified by using anti-spam protection software. It is also crucial to keep in mind that a mailbox with an active catch-all functionality cannot redirect incoming emails to a third-party email address.
Catch-all Emails in Cloud Hosting
In case you’ve got a cloud hosting with us and you’d like to enable the catch-all functionality for a certain email mailbox that you have in the hosting account, it’ll take literally only one click in the Email Manager section of your Hepsia Control Panel to do that. A catch-all button is available on the right-hand side of each email address that you have created under any domain name registered in your account. You can select one single email address per domain by clicking on the corresponding button. This will enable the feature right away, so all emails sent to mistyped email addresses will be re-sent there. Clicking the button once again will disable the catch-all feature. If you’ve got activated email forwarding, our system will display a warning note and you will not be able to activate the catch-all feature till you disable the forwarding or you can simply choose another mailbox to be the catch-all one.
Catch-all Emails in Semi-dedicated Hosting
The catch-all feature can be enabled without any difficulty in case you’ve got a semi-dedicated server plan with us. All the email addresses that you’ve set up using the domain names hosted in the semi-dedicated account will be displayed in the Email Manager section of your Hepsia hosting Control Panel and you’ll notice a mini sign conveniently located right next to each one. With just one single click, you can activate or deactivate the catch-all option for any mailbox of your liking as long as there isn't another mailbox under the same domain name with the option already activated and there isn't activated email forwarding. Alternatively, you can right-click on an email address and activate this feature using the context menu that will come into sight. If any of the prerequisites for creating a catch-all mailbox is not fulfilled, our system will warn you, but will not disable or replace anything automatically.
