A catch-all email mailbox is one that captures all the emails sent to invalid email addresses. For instance, if your 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 created. Only one mailbox per domain can have this feature enabled and thus you will never miss messages because the other party has an obsolete address or has made a typographical error. The drawback of creating a catch-all mailbox is that you may start receiving plenty of unsolicited emails, but this issue can be solved by using anti-spam filtering software. It is also crucial to keep in mind that a mailbox with an activated catch-all functionality cannot forward incoming messages to a 3rd-party email address.
Catch-all Emails in Web Hosting
In case you’ve got a Linux web hosting service with our company and you would like to enable the catch-all feature for a specific email mailbox that you have in the hosting account, it will take literally only one single mouse click in the Email Manager section of your Hepsia Control Panel to accomplish this. A catch-all button is available next to each and every email address that you have created under any domain name hosted in your account. You can pick one email address per domain by clicking the corresponding button. This will activate the feature momentarily, so all emails sent to misspelled email addresses will be re-sent there. Clicking on the button again will disable the catch-all feature. If you have activated email forwarding, our system will display a warning notice and you won’t be able to enable the catch-all feature until you delete the forwarding or you can simply choose a different mailbox to be the catch-all one.
Catch-all Emails in Semi-dedicated Hosting
A catch-all email address can be created with a few clicks of the mouse if you’ve got a semi-dedicated hosting with our company. The semi-dedicated account will be managed via our custom-created Hepsia Control Panel and you’ll be able to set up mailboxes using any domain name registered there. To activate the catch-all functionality for a mailbox, you’ll have to click on the logo with the same name, which will be to the right of each email address. Deactivating the feature can be accomplished in the exact same manner and will not take more than one click either. If the catch-all functionality has already been activated for a specific domain name, you will receive a warning notice. The same goes if the mailbox that you’d like to be a catch-all one has email forwarding activated, as our system will never disable or edit any feature automatically.
