A catch-all mailbox is one that gathers all the email messages sent to invalid email addresses. For example, if your address is [email protected], but someone mistypes it and sends an email message to [email protected], it will still be received in the catch-all mailbox that you have set up. Just one single mailbox per domain can have this feature activated and thus you will never miss emails because the other side has an obsolete address or has made a typographical error. The disadvantage of using a catch-all mailbox is that you may begin receiving lots of unsolicited email messages, but this problem can be rectified by using anti-spam protection software. It’s also crucial to bear in mind that a mailbox with an activated catch-all functionality cannot redirect incoming email messages to a 3rd-party email address.
Catch-all Emails in Shared Hosting
In case you host a domain name on our cloud web hosting platform and you have a shared hosting account, you’ll be able to enable the catch-all feature for any email mailbox that you create under the domain. The Hepsia hosting Control Panel’s Email Manager section offers quite a few functions, but it’s remarkably simple to use, so configuring a catch-all mailbox takes only one single mouse click. All the email addresses that you have will be displayed in this section in alphabetical order and you will simply need to click on the "Catch-all" button pertaining to the concrete address. Our system will notify you if there is already another catch-all mailbox enabled for that domain or if the one that you would like to be a catch-all mailbox has email forwarding enabled, so you can either disable the latter feature or pick another mailbox. Deactivating the catch-all feature is just as easy and requires yet another mouse click on the exact same button.
Catch-all Emails in Semi-dedicated Hosting
The custom Hepsia Control Panel that comes with each semi-dedicated server package that we are offering will permit you to configure a catch-all e-mailbox without any effort even if you do not have much web/email hosting experience. All you need to do to achieve that is click on the catch-all icon, which will be next to each mailbox that you have created with your domain names in the Email Manager section of the Control Panel. As you can have only one single mailbox with this feature per domain name, our system will let you know if you’ve already set up a different catch-all mailbox or if the one that you would like to use has email forwarding activated. In case you reach the decision that you don’t need this feature anymore, you can remove it by clicking once again on the exact same icon. The Email Manager section will also allow you to view your catch-all mailboxes at a glance.
