A catch-all e-mailbox is one that gathers all the emails sent to non-existent email addresses. For example, if your address is info@domain.com, but somebody miswrites it and sends a message to inof@domain.com, it will still be received in the catch-all mailbox that you have created. Only one single mailbox per domain can have this feature enabled and in this way you will never miss emails because the other party has an out-of-date email address or has made a typographical error. The disadvantage of having a catch-all mailbox is that you may begin receiving a lot of unsolicited email messages, but this problem can be fixed using anti-spam protection software. It is also essential to bear in mind that a mailbox with an active catch-all functionality cannot redirect inbound email messages to a 3rd-party mailbox.
Catch-all Emails in Cloud Website Hosting
Creating a catch-all mailbox will be very easy if you have a cloud website hosting service with us. You can enable the feature through our powerful, albeit simple-to-work-with Email Manager, which is an indivisible part of the Hepsia Control Panel, via which you will administer your web hosting account. You’ll see all the mailboxes that you have set up shown in alphabetical order and on the right-hand side of each one there will be a mini "Catch-all" icon, which will immediately reveal to you if a particular mailbox gets all the emails for a certain domain or not. With one single click on the icon you can activate or deactivate the feature whenever you want. In case there is active email forwarding or in case some other mailbox has already been configured as a catch-all one for a specific domain, you will get a warning from our system. The latter won’t deactivate/replace anything automatically and without your approval.
Catch-all Emails in Semi-dedicated Hosting
The custom-built Hepsia hosting Control Panel that comes with each and every semi-dedicated server plan that we’re offering will allow you to set up a catch-all e-mailbox with ease 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 to the right of each email address that you have set up with your domain names in the hosting Control Panel’s Email Manager section. As you can have only one single mailbox with this feature per domain name, our system will let you know if you have 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 do not need this feature anymore, you can disable it by clicking again on the exact same icon. The Email Manager will also allow you to view your catch-all mailboxes at a glance.
