A catch-all email mailbox is one that captures all the email messages sent to non-existent addresses. For example, if your email address is info@domain.com, but someone misspells it and sends a message to inof@domain.com, it will still be received in the catch-all mailbox that you have configured. Just one single mailbox per domain can have this feature enabled and thus you’ll never miss emails because the other side has an out-of-date address or has made a spelling mistake. The negative aspect of configuring a catch-all mailbox is that you may begin receiving plenty of spam messages, but this issue can be fixed using anti-spam protection software. It’s also crucial to remember that a mailbox with an enabled catch-all functionality cannot redirect incoming email messages to a third-party email address.
Catch-all Emails in Cloud Hosting
If you’ve got a cloud hosting with us and you’d like to activate the catch-all option for a particular email mailbox that you have in your hosting account, it will take literally only one single mouse click in the Email Manager section of your Hepsia Control Panel to do that. A catch-all button is available to the right of each and every email address that you have created under any domain name hosted in the account. You can pick one single address per domain by clicking the respective button. This will enable the feature right away, so all emails sent to mistyped email addresses will be received there. Clicking the button again will disable the catch-all feature. In case you have active email forwarding, our system will show a cautionary notice and you will not be able to activate the catch-all feature until you remove the forwarding or you can simply choose another mailbox to be the catch-all one.
Catch-all Emails in Semi-dedicated Servers
The catch-all option can be activated effortlessly in case you’ve got a semi-dedicated server account with us. All the email addresses that you have set up using the domains hosted in the semi-dedicated account will be displayed in the Hepsia Control Panel’s Email Manager section and you’ll find a mini icon conveniently situated directly next to each one of them. With just a click, you can activate or deactivate the catch-all option for any mailbox of your liking provided that there isn't another mailbox under that same domain name with the option already activated and there isn't enabled email forwarding. Alternatively, you can right-click on a mailbox and enable this option through the context menu that will show up. In case any of the conditions for setting up a catch-all mailbox is not matched, our system will notify you, but will not deactivate or replace anything automatically.
