A catch-all e-mailbox is one that gathers all the emails sent to nonexistent email addresses. For instance, if your email address is info@domain.com, but someone misspells it and sends an email message to inof@domain.com, it will still be received in the catch-all mailbox that you have set up. Just one mailbox per domain can have this feature activated and in this way you’ll never miss messages because the other side has an outdated email address or has made a typographical error. The disadvantage of using a catch-all mailbox is that you may start receiving lots of spam email messages, but this issue can be rectified by using an anti-spam filtering solution. It is also vital to know that a mailbox with an active catch-all functionality cannot forward inbound email messages to a third-party mailbox.
Catch-all Emails in Cloud Hosting
Configuring a catch-all e-mailbox will be surprisingly easy if you’ve got a Linux cloud service with us. You can activate this option through our advanced, yet easy-to-work-with Email Manager tool, which is included in the Hepsia hosting Control Panel, via which you will administer your web hosting account. You will find all the mailboxes that you have created listed in alphabetical order and next to each of them there will be a small "Catch-all" icon, which will quickly reveal to you whether a particular mailbox stores all the emails pertaining to a given domain or not. With one single click on the icon you can enable or disable this option whenever you wish. If there is activated email forwarding or if another mailbox has already been set up as a catch-all one for a given domain, you’ll receive an alert from our system. The latter will not deactivate/replace anything automatically and without your consent.
Catch-all Emails in Semi-dedicated Servers
The catch-all feature can be enabled without effort if you’ve got a semi-dedicated server account with us. All the email addresses that you’ve created using the domain names hosted in your semi-dedicated server account will be listed in the Email Manager section of your Hepsia Control Panel and you will find a mini icon conveniently situated right next to each one. With just one click, you can activate or deactivate the catch-all option for any mailbox of your desire as long as there isn't another mailbox under the same domain name with this option already enabled and there isn't enabled email forwarding. Alternatively, you can right-click on a mailbox and enable the feature through the context menu that will surface. If any of the preconditions for setting up a catch-all mailbox is not matched, our system will warn you, but will not deactivate or replace anything automatically.
