A catch-all e-mailbox is one that captures all the messages sent to invalid email addresses. For example, if your email address is info@domain.com, but somebody mistypes it and sends an email message to inof@domain.com, it will still be received in the catch-all mailbox that you have set up. Just one single mailbox per domain name can have this feature enabled and in this way you will never miss messages because the other party has an outdated email address or has made a typographical error. The downside of using a catch-all mailbox is that you may begin receiving lots of spam, but this problem can be solved by using anti-spam filtering software. It is also important to remember that a mailbox with an enabled catch-all functionality cannot redirect incoming emails to a third-party email address.
Catch-all Emails in Shared Website Hosting
Configuring a catch-all email mailbox will be surprisingly easy in case you have a shared website hosting package with our company. You can enable this option through our powerful, yet simple-to-work-with Email Manager, which is built into the Hepsia Control Panel, via which you’ll administer the hosting account itself. You’ll see all the mailboxes that you have set up listed alphabetically and on the right side of each one of them there will be a mini "Catch-all" icon, which will quickly inform you whether a specific mailbox stores all the email messages associated with a given domain name or not. With one single click on the icon you can enable or disable this feature whenever you want. If there’s active email forwarding or if another mailbox has already been set up as a catch-all one for a certain domain name, you will receive a warning note from our system. The latter will not replace/disable anything automatically or without your approval.
Catch-all Emails in Semi-dedicated Hosting
You’ll be able to configure a catch-all email address with no more than a click in case you have a semi-dedicated hosting package with us and your email messages are handled by our cloud web hosting platform. All the addresses that you create using any domain hosted in your semi-dedicated hosting account will be listed in the Hepsia Control Panel’s Email Manager section. Each of them will have a small "Catch-all" icon next to it, so all it will take to activate the feature will be to click that icon. In the very same way you’ll be able to remove the feature, in case you don’t need it anymore. Our system will warn you if you are trying to activate a second catch-all mailbox for a particular domain name or if there’s enabled email forwarding, but it’ll never alter or disable anything automatically or without your consent.
