A catch-all mailbox is one that collects all the emails sent to inactive addresses. For example, if your address is info@domain.com, but somebody mistypes it and sends a message to inof@domain.com, it will still be received in the catch-all mailbox that you have created. Just 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per domain can have this feature activated and in this way you will never miss emails because the other party has an out-of-date address or has made a spelling mistake.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 negative aspect of setting up a catch-all mailbox is that you may begin receiving lots of unsolicited messages, but this issue can be fixed by using an anti-spam protection solution. It’s also vital to know that a mailbox with an active catch-all functionality cannot redirect inbound emails to a third-party mailbox.
Catch-all Emails in Shared Hosting
In case you host a domain on our cloud web hosting platform and you have a shared hosting account, you will be able to enable the catch-all feature for any mailbox that you create under the domain. The Hepsia Control Panel’s Email Manager section comes with quite a few functions, but it is exceptionally simple to work with, so creating a catch-all mailbox requires just one click of the mouse. All the email addresses that you have will be shown in this section alphabetically and you will simply have to click on the "Catch-all" button pertaining to the concrete email address. Our system will warn you if there is already another catch-all mailbox activated for that domain name or if the one that you want to be a catch-all mailbox has email forwarding activated, so you can either deactivate the latter feature or pick a different mailbox. Deactivating the catch-all feature is just as easy and takes yet another click on the very same button.
Catch-all Emails in Semi-dedicated Servers
A catch-all email address can be created with a few clicks if you’ve got a semi-dedicated service with our company. The semi-dedicated account will be administered through our custom Hepsia Control Panel and you’ll be able to create mailboxes under any domain name registered here. To enable the catch-all feature for a specific mailbox, you will have to click on the logo with the same name, which will be next to each mailbox. Deactivating this functionality can be achieved in the same way and will not take more than one click either. If the catch-all functionality has already been activated for a specific domain name, you’ll get a warning message. The same goes if the mailbox that you’d like to be a catch-all one has email forwarding enabled, as our system will never replace or disable any feature automatically.
