A catch-all email mailbox is one that gathers all the emails sent to nonexistent addresses. For example, 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 mailbox per domain name can have this feature enabled and in this way you’ll never miss emails because the other side has an out-of-date email address or has made a spelling error. The downside of setting up a catch-all mailbox is that you may begin receiving lots of unsolicited emails, but this issue can be resolved using anti-spam filtering software. It is also crucial to remember that a mailbox with an enabled catch-all functionality cannot redirect incoming emails to a 3rd-party mailbox.
Catch-all Emails in Cloud Hosting
In case you’ve got a Linux cloud hosting plan with our company and you’d like to enable the catch-all feature for a particular mailbox that you’ve got in your hosting account, it will take literally only a single click of the mouse in the Email Manager section of your Hepsia hosting Control Panel to achieve this. A catch-all button is available to the right of each and every email address that you have created under any domain hosted in your account. You can select one address per domain name by clicking the respective button. This will activate the feature immediately, so all emails sent to misspelled email addresses will be received there. Clicking on the button once more will disable the catch-all feature. In case you have activated email forwarding, our system will exhibit a cautionary notification and you won’t be able to activate the catch-all feature until you delete the forwarding or you can simply select a different mailbox to be the catch-all one.
Catch-all Emails in Semi-dedicated Servers
You’ll be able to configure a catch-all email address with no more than a click if you’ve got a semi-dedicated server with us and your email messages are handled by our cloud hosting platform. All the addresses that you create with any domain name hosted in the account will be enumerated in the Email Manager section of your Hepsia Control Panel. Each of them will have a tiny "Catch-all" icon next to it, so all it will take to activate this functionality will be to click on that icon. In the same manner you will be able to disable the feature, in case you do not need it any longer. Our system will warn you in case you are attempting to enable a second catch-all email address for a certain domain or if there’s enabled email forwarding, but it’ll never modify or disable anything automatically or without your permission.
