A catch-all e-mailbox is one that collects all the emails sent to invalid addresses. For example, if your email address is info@domain.com, but someone 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. Only one single mailbox per domain can have this feature activated and in this way you will never miss emails because the other party has an obsolete email address or has made a mistake. The disadvantage of using a catch-all mailbox is that you may begin receiving lots of spam email messages, but this problem can be solved by using anti-spam protection software. It’s also vital to remember that a mailbox with an activated catch-all feature cannot redirect inbound messages to a third-party address.

Catch-all Emails in Cloud Hosting

In case you have a Linux cloud hosting with us and you’d like to enable the catch-all functionality for a given e-mailbox that you have in your hosting account, it will take literally only a single click in the Email Manager section of your Hepsia Control Panel to accomplish that. A catch-all button is available to the right of each email address that you have set up under any domain registered in the account. You can choose one email address per domain name by clicking the corresponding button. This will enable the feature straight away, so all email messages sent to misspelled addresses will be re-sent there. Clicking on the button once more will disable the catch-all feature. In case you’ve got active email forwarding, our system will exhibit a warning notification and you won’t be able to activate the catch-all feature unless you disable the forwarding or you can simply pick another mailbox to be the catch-all one.

Catch-all Emails in Semi-dedicated Hosting

The in-house built Hepsia hosting Control Panel that comes with each semi-dedicated server package that we’re offering will permit you to set up a catch-all mailbox without effort even in case you don’t have much web/email hosting experience. All you need to do to accomplish that is click the catch-all icon, which will be on the right side of each mailbox that you’ve created with your domains in the Email Manager section of the Control Panel. As you can have just one single mailbox with this feature per domain, our system will notify you if you have already set up another catch-all mailbox or if the one that you would like to use has email forwarding activated. In case you decide that you do not need the feature anymore, you can disable it by clicking once again on the very same icon. The Email Manager will also permit you to see your catch-all mailboxes at a glance.
