A catch-all e-mailbox is one that captures all the messages sent to non-existent addresses. For instance, if your email address is info@domain.com, but somebody mistypes it and sends an email to inof@domain.com, it will still be received in the catch-all mailbox that you have set up. Only one mailbox per domain can have this feature activated and in this way you will never miss emails because the other party has an out-of-date address or has made a spelling mistake. The downside of configuring a catch-all mailbox is that you may start receiving a lot of spam email messages, but this issue can be solved by using an anti-spam protection solution. It is also important to bear in mind that a mailbox with an activated catch-all feature cannot forward incoming email messages to a third-party email address.
Catch-all Emails in Shared Hosting
In case you have a shared hosting with us and you want to enable the catch-all functionality for a certain email mailbox that you have in the web hosting account, it will take literally just one click of the mouse in the Email Manager section of your Hepsia Control Panel to do this. 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 select one single email address per domain name by clicking the corresponding button. This will enable the feature momentarily, so all email messages sent to miswritten email addresses will be delivered there. Clicking the button for a second time will deactivate the catch-all feature. In case you’ve got activated email forwarding, our system will display a cautionary notification and you won’t be able to enable the catch-all feature unless you deactivate the forwarding or you can simply choose another mailbox to be the catch-all one.
Catch-all Emails in Semi-dedicated Hosting
A catch-all email address can be set up with several clicks in case you have a semi-dedicated hosting service with our company. The semi-dedicated account will be administered via our in-house developed Hepsia hosting Control Panel and you’ll be able to create email addresses using any domain name registered there. To enable the catch-all option for a given mailbox, you’ll need to click the symbol with the exact same name, which will be to the right of each email address. Disabling the feature can be done in the very same fashion and will not require more than a click either. If the catch-all option has already been enabled for a certain domain, you’ll get a warning. The same is valid if the mailbox that you wish to be a catch-all one has email forwarding enabled, as our system will never alter or disable any feature automatically.
