A catch-all e-mailbox is one that captures all the email messages sent to invalid addresses. For instance, if your email address is info@domain.com, but someone misspells it and sends an email to inof@domain.com, it will still be received in the catch-all mailbox that you have created. Just one single mailbox per domain name can have this feature activated and in this way you will never miss emails because the other party has an outdated email address or has made a mistake. The disadvantage of setting up a catch-all mailbox is that you may start receiving a lot of unsolicited emails, but this issue can be solved using an anti-spam protection solution. It’s also important to remember that a mailbox with an activated catch-all functionality cannot forward inbound email messages to a third-party address.
Catch-all Emails in Cloud Website Hosting
Setting up a catch-all e-mailbox will be incredibly easy if you have a Linux cloud website hosting package with us. You can activate this feature through our advanced, albeit user-friendly Email Manager, which is included in the Hepsia hosting Control Panel, via which you’ll manage the shared web hosting account itself. You’ll see all the email addresses that you’ve set up displayed alphabetically and on the right-hand side of each of them there will be a small-size "Catch-all" icon, which will immediately show you whether a certain mailbox receives all the messages for a certain domain or not. With one single click on the icon you can activate or deactivate this option whenever you want. If there’s active email forwarding or if a different mailbox has already been set up as a catch-all one for a specific domain, you will get a warning text message from our system. The latter won’t replace/deactivate anything automatically or without your approval.
Catch-all Emails in Semi-dedicated Hosting
The custom-created Hepsia hosting Control Panel that is included with each semi-dedicated server package that we’re offering will permit you to configure a catch-all e-mailbox without any difficulty even if you don’t have much web/email hosting experience. All it takes to accomplish that is to click the catch-all icon, which will be on the right-hand side of each mailbox that you have created using your domain names in the Control Panel’s Email Manager section. As you can have only one single mailbox with this feature per domain name, our system will inform you if you have already set up a different catch-all mailbox or if the one that you’d like to use has email forwarding activated. In case you reach the decision that you do not want the feature anymore, you can remove it by clicking once again on the exact same icon. The Email Manager will also allow you to view your catch-all mailboxes at a glance.
