A catch-all e-mailbox is one that gathers all the emails sent to inactive email addresses. For instance, if your address is info@domain.com, but somebody misspells 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one mailbox per domain can have this feature enabled and thus you’ll never miss messages because the other side has an outdated email address or has made a spelling error. The disadvantage of having a catch-all mailbox is that you may begin receiving plenty of unsolicited bulk email messages, but this issue can be rectified using an anti-spam protection solution. It is also vital to remember that a mailbox with an active catch-all feature cannot forward inbound email messages to a third-party mailbox.
Catch-all Emails in Web Hosting
You will be able to create a catch-all email mailbox without effort in case you have a web hosting plan with us. The Email Manager tool in our custom Hepsia hosting Control Panel is fully featured, yet amazingly simple to use, and it will enable you to activate various options, including the catch-all one, with no more than a couple of clicks of the mouse. All the email addresses that you have set up will be shown alphabetically in this section and on the right-hand side of each one of them you will notice a small "Catch-all" icon. Clicking on it once will enable this feature, clicking it once again will deactivate it. As you can have only one such mailbox per domain, our system will notify you if you’ve already got a different mailbox with this feature activated or if you have enabled email forwarding.
Catch-all Emails in Semi-dedicated Servers
A catch-all address can be created with a couple of mouse clicks if you’ve got a Linux semi-dedicated service with us. The semi-dedicated account will be managed through our in-house built Hepsia Control Panel and you’ll be able to create mailboxes with any domain registered here. To activate the catch-all option for a mailbox, you will have to click on the button with the same name, which will be on the right side of each mailbox. Disabling this feature can be done in the very same way and will not take more than a click either. If the catch-all functionality has already been activated for a specific domain name, you’ll get a warning message. The same goes if the mailbox that you want to be a catch-all one has email forwarding enabled, as our system will never deactivate or replace any feature automatically.
