A catch-all mailbox is one that collects all the emails sent to nonexistent email addresses. For instance, if your email address is info@domain.com, but someone miswrites 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 mailbox per domain can have this feature activated and thus you’ll never miss messages because the other party has an outdated email address or has made a spelling mistake. The disadvantage of using a catch-all mailbox is that you may start receiving lots of spam emails, but this issue can be resolved by using an anti-spam protection solution. It is also essential to remember that a mailbox with an enabled catch-all functionality cannot forward inbound messages to a third-party mailbox.
Catch-all Emails in Cloud Web Hosting
If you host a domain name on our cloud hosting platform and you’ve got a cloud web hosting account, you’ll be able to enable the catch-all functionality for any email mailbox that you set up under the domain. The Hepsia Control Panel’s Email Manager section offers quite a lot of functions, but it’s really intuitive, so configuring a catch-all mailbox requires just one single click. All the email addresses that you’ve created will be shown in this section alphabetically and you’ll just need to click on the "Catch-all" button pertaining to the respective address. Our system will notify you if there’s already another catch-all mailbox enabled for that domain or if the one that you’d like to be a catch-all mailbox has email forwarding activated, so you can either deactivate the latter feature or pick another mailbox. Disabling the catch-all option is just as easy and takes one more click on the exact same button.
Catch-all Emails in Semi-dedicated Hosting
The custom-built Hepsia hosting Control Panel that comes with each semi-dedicated server package that we offer will permit you to configure a catch-all email mailbox with ease even in case you don’t have much web/email hosting experience. All it takes to do that is to click on the catch-all icon, which will be next to each email address that you have set up using your domain names in the Control Panel’s Email Manager section. Since you can have just one mailbox with this feature per domain name, our system will let you know if you’ve already created another catch-all mailbox or if the one that you want to use has email forwarding activated. If you reach the decision that you do not need the feature anymore, you can turn it off by clicking again on the exact same icon. The Email Manager will also permit you to see your catch-all mailboxes at a glance.
