A catch-all mailbox is one that captures all the email messages sent to non-existent email addresses. For instance, if your email 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. Only one mailbox per domain can have this feature enabled and thus you’ll never miss messages because the other side has an obsolete address or has made a spelling mistake. The negative aspect of creating a catch-all mailbox is that you may start receiving a lot of unsolicited bulk messages, but this issue can be resolved using anti-spam protection software. It’s also crucial to keep in mind that a mailbox with an activated catch-all functionality cannot redirect incoming emails to a 3rd-party mailbox.
Catch-all Emails in Hosting
You’ll be able to create a catch-all mailbox without any effort in case you’ve got a hosting plan with our company. The Email Manager tool in our custom-developed Hepsia hosting Control Panel is feature-rich, yet incredibly simple to work with, and it will enable you to enable different options, including the catch-all one, with only a couple of clicks of the mouse. All the email addresses that you’ve got will be enumerated in alphabetical order in this section and to the right of each one of them you’ll see a small "Catch-all" sign. Clicking it once will activate this option, clicking it once again will deactivate it. As you can have only one such mailbox per domain, our system will warn you if you already have another mailbox with this feature enabled or if you’ve got activated email forwarding.
Catch-all Emails in Semi-dedicated Servers
The catch-all option can be activated without difficulty if you’ve got a semi-dedicated server account with us. All the email addresses that you have created with the domains hosted in the semi-dedicated account will be shown in the Email Manager section of your Hepsia Control Panel and you will notice a mini symbol conveniently located directly next to each one of them. With just one single click of the mouse, you can activate or deactivate the catch-all option for any mailbox of your choosing on the condition that there isn't another mailbox under that same domain with this option already enabled and there isn't activated email forwarding. Instead, you can right-click on a mailbox and activate the feature using the menu that will pop up. In case any of the prerequisites for configuring a catch-all mailbox is not fulfilled, our system will inform you, but will not disable or replace anything automatically.
