A catch-all email mailbox is one that gathers all the messages sent to inactive email addresses. For instance, if your email address is info@domain.com, but somebody miswrites it and sends an email message to inof@domain.com, it will still be received in the catch-all mailbox that you have created. Just one mailbox per domain name can have this feature activated and thus you’ll never miss emails because the other side has an outdated email address or has made a spelling mistake. The negative aspect of creating a catch-all mailbox is that you may begin receiving a lot of spam email messages, but this issue can be fixed using anti-spam protection software. It’s also crucial to know that a mailbox with an active catch-all feature cannot forward inbound emails to a third-party address.
Catch-all Emails in Web Hosting
You’ll be able to set up a catch-all e-mailbox with ease if you have a web hosting account with us. The Email Manager in our custom-built Hepsia hosting Control Panel is fully featured, yet stunningly user-friendly, and it will enable you to enable various features, including the catch-all one, with just several mouse clicks. All the mailboxes that you’ve created will be listed alphabetically in this section and on the right side of each of them you will see a tiny "Catch-all" symbol. Clicking on it once will activate this option, clicking it again will disable it. As you can have just one such mailbox per domain name, our system will alert you if you’ve already got a different mailbox with this feature enabled or if you’ve got activated email forwarding.
Catch-all Emails in Semi-dedicated Hosting
You will be able to create a catch-all address with no more than one click if you’ve got a Linux semi-dedicated hosting package with us and your emails are handled by our cloud web hosting platform. All the email addresses that you create with any domain name hosted in the semi-dedicated hosting account will be shown in the Hepsia hosting Control Panel’s Email Manager section. Each of them will have a small "Catch-all" icon on its right-hand side, so all it will take to activate the feature will be to click on that icon. In the exact same manner you will be able to remove the feature, in case you don’t need it anymore. Our system will let you know in case you are trying to enable a 2nd catch-all email address for a specific domain or in case there is enabled email forwarding, but it will never change or disable any feature automatically and without your consent.
