A catch-all mailbox is one that collects all the emails sent to invalid email addresses. For instance, if your address is info@domain.com, but somebody mistypes it and sends an email to inof@domain.com, it will still be received in the catch-all mailbox that you have created. Just one mailbox per domain can have this feature enabled and in this way you will never miss emails because the other side has an out-of-date email address or has made a typo. The downside of setting up a catch-all mailbox is that you may begin receiving a lot of unsolicited email messages, but this issue can be rectified using an anti-spam protection solution. It is also vital to remember that a mailbox with an active catch-all functionality cannot redirect incoming messages to a 3rd-party address.
Catch-all Emails in Shared Web Hosting
You’ll be able to set up a catch-all email mailbox without difficulty in case you’ve got a shared web hosting plan with our company. The Email Manager tool in our custom-developed Hepsia Control Panel is fully featured, yet unbelievably easy to work with, and it will enable you to activate different features, including the catch-all one, with just a couple of clicks. All the email addresses that you’ve set up will be enumerated in alphabetical order in this section and next to each one you’ll notice a small-size "Catch-all" sign. Clicking it once will enable this option, clicking it again will deactivate it. As you can have just one such mailbox per domain, our system will inform you if you’ve already got another mailbox with this option enabled or if you have active email forwarding.
Catch-all Emails in Semi-dedicated Servers
The catch-all option can be activated effortlessly in case you’ve got a semi-dedicated server account with us. All the email addresses that you’ve set up with the domain names hosted in your semi-dedicated server account will be enumerated in the Hepsia Control Panel’s Email Manager section and you’ll see a small icon conveniently located right next to each one. With only one click, you can activate or deactivate the catch-all option for any mailbox of your choosing as long as there isn't another mailbox under that same domain name with the option already activated and there isn't enabled email forwarding. Instead, you can right-click on an email address and enable this feature through the context menu that will surface. In case any of the prerequisites for creating a catch-all mailbox is not met, our system will inform you, but will not replace or disable anything automatically.
