A catch-all email mailbox is one that collects all the messages sent to inactive addresses. For instance, if your email address is info@domain.com, but somebody misspells it and sends an email message to inof@domain.com, it will still be received in the catch-all mailbox that you have configured. Just 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per domain can have this feature enabled and in this way you will never miss messages because the other side has an out-of-date address or has made a spelling error. The drawback of setting up a catch-all mailbox is that you may begin receiving plenty of junk email messages, but this problem can be solved using an anti-spam filtering solution. It is also important to remember that a mailbox with an enabled catch-all feature cannot forward incoming emails to a third-party mailbox.
Catch-all Emails in Cloud Web Hosting
Creating a catch-all email mailbox will be surprisingly easy if you’ve got a Linux cloud web hosting service with us. You can enable this option through our advanced, albeit simple-to-work-with Email Manager tool, which is integrated into the Hepsia hosting Control Panel, via which you’ll manage your account. You will find all the mailboxes that you’ve set up listed in alphabetical order and on the right-hand side of each of them there will be a small-size "Catch-all" icon, which will instantaneously tell you whether a certain mailbox gets all the emails associated with a given domain or not. With one single click on the icon you can activate or deactivate this feature at any moment. In case there is enabled email forwarding or if another mailbox has already been configured as a catch-all one for a particular domain, you will receive a warning note from our system. The latter will not replace/disable anything automatically or without your approval.
Catch-all Emails in Semi-dedicated Hosting
The catch-all functionality can be activated without difficulty in case you have a semi-dedicated server plan with us. All the email addresses that you have created with the domains hosted in your semi-dedicated server account will be displayed in the Hepsia hosting Control Panel’s Email Manager section and you’ll notice a small symbol conveniently situated right next to each one. With only one click, you can activate or deactivate the catch-all option for any mailbox of your liking provided that there isn't another mailbox under the same domain with this option already enabled and there isn't activated email forwarding. Instead, you can right-click on an email address and activate this feature through the contextual menu that will show up. In case any of the prerequisites for setting up a catch-all mailbox is not answered, our system will notify you, but will not disable or replace anything automatically.
