A catch-all e-mailbox is one that gathers all the messages sent to non-existent email addresses. For instance, if your 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 created. Only one mailbox per domain name can have this feature activated and thus you’ll never miss emails because the other party has an outdated email address or has made a mistake. The drawback of using a catch-all mailbox is that you may start receiving plenty of junk emails, but this problem can be fixed using an anti-spam filtering solution. It’s also essential to keep in mind that a mailbox with an activated catch-all feature cannot forward inbound emails to a third-party address.
Catch-all Emails in Cloud Hosting
You will be able to set up a catch-all mailbox without difficulty if you have a cloud hosting plan with us. The Email Manager tool in our in-house developed Hepsia Control Panel is feature-loaded, yet surprisingly easy to use, and it will permit you to enable various features, including the catch-all one, with only a couple of mouse clicks. All the email addresses that you’ve got will be displayed alphabetically in this section and next to each one you’ll notice a mini "Catch-all" sign. Clicking on it once will enable this feature, clicking it once again will disable it. Since you can have only one such catch-all mailbox per domain, our system will warn you if you already have a different one with this option activated or if you have activated email forwarding.
Catch-all Emails in Semi-dedicated Hosting
You’ll be able to set up a catch-all email address with no more than a click in case you’ve got a Linux semi-dedicated hosting package with us and your emails are handled by our cloud platform. All the email addresses that you set up with any domain hosted in the semi-dedicated hosting account will be listed 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 very same way you will be able to deactivate the feature, if you no longer need it. Our system will inform you if you are trying to activate a second catch-all address for a specific domain name or if there’s enabled email forwarding, but it’ll never disable or modify any feature automatically and without your approval.
