A catch-all e-mailbox is one that collects all the email messages sent to invalid addresses. For instance, if your address is info@domain.com, but someone misspells it and sends an email to inof@domain.com, it will still be received in the catch-all mailbox that you have configured. Just one mailbox per domain name can have this feature enabled and thus you will never miss emails because the other side has an outdated address or has made a typo. The disadvantage of creating a catch-all mailbox is that you may begin receiving plenty of unsolicited email messages, but this problem can be resolved using an anti-spam filtering solution. It’s also important to remember that a mailbox with an enabled catch-all functionality cannot forward incoming messages to a third-party address.
Catch-all Emails in Web Hosting
In case you have a Linux web hosting with our company and you want to enable the catch-all functionality for a given e-mailbox that you have in the account, it’ll take literally only one single click in the Email Manager section of your Hepsia hosting Control Panel to accomplish that. A catch-all button is available to the right of each email address that you have set up under any domain hosted in the account. You can pick one email address per domain by clicking the respective button. This will enable the feature instantaneously, so all emails sent to mistyped email addresses will be re-sent there. Clicking the button for a second time will turn off the catch-all feature. If you’ve got activated email forwarding, our system will display a cautionary notification and you will not be able to enable the catch-all feature until you disable the forwarding or you can simply choose a different mailbox to be the catch-all one.
Catch-all Emails in Semi-dedicated Servers
A catch-all email address can be configured with a couple of mouse clicks in case you have a Linux semi-dedicated server with us. The semi-dedicated account will be administered via our custom-created Hepsia Control Panel and you’ll be able to set up mailboxes using any domain hosted there. To activate the catch-all feature for a particular mailbox, you will have to click on the symbol with the same name, which will be next to each mailbox. Deactivating this functionality can be accomplished in the exact same way and will not require more than one click either. If the catch-all option has already been activated for a certain domain, you will get a warning. The same goes if the mailbox that you wish to be a catch-all one has email forwarding activated, as our system will never deactivate or alter anything automatically.
