A catch-all email mailbox is one that captures all the messages sent to nonexistent addresses. For instance, if your address is info@domain.com, but someone miswrites it and sends an email message 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per domain name can have this feature activated and thus you will never miss emails because the other party has an out-of-date address or has made a spelling error. The drawback of creating a catch-all mailbox is that you may start receiving lots of spam, but this problem can be resolved by using anti-spam protection software. It’s also vital to keep in mind that a mailbox with an enabled catch-all functionality cannot redirect inbound emails to a third-party address.
Catch-all Emails in Cloud Website Hosting
You will be able to configure a catch-all e-mailbox without any difficulty if you’ve got a cloud website hosting plan with us. The Email Manager in our in-house created Hepsia hosting Control Panel is feature-laden, yet incredibly simple to use, and it will permit you to enable different features, including the catch-all one, with only several mouse clicks. All the email addresses that you’ve created will be shown alphabetically in this section and on the right side of each one of them you’ll notice a mini "Catch-all" sign. Clicking it once will enable this option, clicking it once more will deactivate it. As you can have only one such mailbox per domain name, our system will inform you if you already have another mailbox with this option activated or if you’ve got enabled email forwarding.
Catch-all Emails in Semi-dedicated Servers
The in-house developed Hepsia Control Panel that comes with each and every semi-dedicated server package that we offer will permit you to create a catch-all mailbox without difficulty even in case you don’t have much web/email hosting experience. All you need to do to accomplish that is click the catch-all icon, which will be to the right of each mailbox that you’ve set up with your domains in the hosting Control Panel’s Email Manager section. Since you can have only one single mailbox with this feature per domain name, our system will inform you if you have already created a different catch-all mailbox or if the one that you would like to use has email forwarding enabled. In case you reach the decision that you don’t want the feature anymore, you can remove it by clicking once again on the very same icon. The Email Manager will also allow you to view your catch-all mailboxes at a glance.
