A catch-all e-mailbox is one that captures all the messages sent to nonexistent email addresses. For instance, if your email address is info@domain.com, but somebody misspells it and sends a message 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mailbox per domain can have this feature activated and thus you will never miss messages because the other side has an outdated email address or has made a spelling mistake. The disadvantage of configuring a catch-all mailbox is that you may begin receiving plenty of junk emails, but this issue can be resolved by using anti-spam protection software. It is also vital to bear in mind that a mailbox with an active catch-all functionality cannot forward incoming email messages to a 3rd-party address.
Catch-all Emails in Hosting
If you host a domain name on our cloud web hosting platform and you have a hosting account, you’ll be able to enable the catch-all functionality for any email mailbox that you create under the domain. The Email Manager section of the Hepsia Control Panel comes with quite a lot of features, but it’s incredibly easy to work with, so configuring a catch-all mailbox takes only a single click. All the email addresses that you have will be enumerated in this section alphabetically and you’ll only have to click on the "Catch-all" button associated with the respective address. Our system will inform you if there is already another catch-all mailbox activated for that domain name or if the one that you would like to be a catch-all mailbox has email forwarding enabled, so you can either turn off the latter feature or select a different mailbox. Disabling the catch-all feature is just as easy and takes one more click on the exact same button.
Catch-all Emails in Semi-dedicated Servers
The catch-all option can be activated easily in case you have a semi-dedicated server plan with us. All the email addresses that you have set up using the domain names hosted in the account will be shown in the Hepsia Control Panel’s Email Manager section and you will find a mini icon conveniently situated right next to each of them. With just one single click of the mouse, you can enable or disable the catch-all option for any mailbox of your choice as long as there isn't another mailbox under that same domain name with this option already activated and there isn't activated email forwarding. Alternatively, you can right-click on a mailbox and enable this feature using the context menu that will appear. In case any of the prerequisites for configuring a catch-all mailbox is not matched, our system will let you know, but will not replace or deactivate anything automatically.
