A catch-all e-mailbox is one that captures all the emails sent to nonexistent addresses. For example, if your email address is info@domain.com, but somebody mistypes it and sends an email to inof@domain.com, it will still be received in the catch-all mailbox that you have set up. Just one mailbox per domain can have this feature enabled and thus you’ll never miss messages because the other party has an obsolete address or has made a mistake. The downside of setting up a catch-all mailbox is that you may start receiving plenty of unsolicited bulk email messages, but this problem can be resolved using an anti-spam filtering solution. It’s also important to bear in mind that a mailbox with an enabled catch-all functionality cannot forward incoming emails to a 3rd-party address.
Catch-all Emails in Shared Hosting
You’ll be able to set up a catch-all mailbox with ease in case you’ve got a shared hosting account with our company. The Email Manager tool in our custom-created Hepsia Control Panel is full-featured, yet unbelievably intuitive, and it will allow you to activate various options, including the catch-all one, with only several clicks. All the email addresses that you’ve got will be enumerated alphabetically in this section and next to each one you will see a small "Catch-all" logo. Clicking on it once will enable this feature, clicking it once more will disable it. As you can have just one such mailbox per domain name, our system will warn you if you’ve already got a different mailbox with this feature enabled or if you’ve got activated email forwarding.
Catch-all Emails in Semi-dedicated Servers
A catch-all address can be created with a few mouse clicks if you have a Linux semi-dedicated server with us. The hosting account will be managed through our custom Hepsia Control Panel and you’ll be able to create mailboxes with any domain registered there. To enable the catch-all option for a mailbox, you will need to click the symbol with the same name, which will be next to each email address. Deactivating this feature can be achieved in the very same way and will not take more than one click either. In case the catch-all functionality has already been activated for a given domain, you’ll get a warning notification. The same goes if the mailbox that you want to be a catch-all one has email forwarding enabled, as our system will never alter or deactivate any feature automatically.
