A catch-all e-mailbox is one that gathers all the messages sent to non-existent email addresses. For example, if your email address is info@domain.com, but somebody misspells it and sends a 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per domain name can have this feature activated and thus you will never miss messages because the other party has an outdated address or has made a mistake. The disadvantage of creating a catch-all mailbox is that you may begin receiving plenty of unsolicited emails, but this problem can be rectified by using an anti-spam protection solution. It’s also crucial to bear in mind that a mailbox with an enabled catch-all functionality cannot forward inbound messages to a third-party mailbox.
Catch-all Emails in Cloud Hosting
In case you’ve got a Linux cloud hosting package with us and you want to enable the catch-all feature for a given email mailbox that you’ve got in your account, it’ll take literally only one single click of the mouse in the Email Manager section of your Hepsia Control Panel to achieve this. A catch-all button is available on the right-hand side of each and every email address that you have set up under any domain name registered in the account. You can choose one single address per domain by clicking the respective button. This will activate the feature immediately, so all messages sent to mistyped addresses will be re-sent there. Clicking on the button for a second time will turn off 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 remove the forwarding or you can simply select a different mailbox to be the catch-all one.
Catch-all Emails in Semi-dedicated Hosting
A catch-all address can be set up with several clicks of the mouse in case you have a Linux semi-dedicated hosting with us. The semi-dedicated hosting account will be administered via our in-house built Hepsia Control Panel and you will be able to set up email addresses under any domain name registered here. To enable the catch-all functionality for a certain mailbox, you will need to click on the symbol with the same name, which will be next to each email address. Disabling this option can be accomplished in the same way and will not take more than a click either. If the catch-all option has already been enabled for a certain domain, you’ll get a warning text message. The same goes if the mailbox that you want to be a catch-all one has email forwarding enabled, as our system will never disable or alter anything automatically.
