A catch-all mailbox is one that gathers all the messages sent to non-existent addresses. For example, if your 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 configured. Only one single mailbox per domain name can have this feature activated and in this way you’ll never miss emails because the other side has an outdated address or has made a mistake. The negative aspect of creating a catch-all mailbox is that you may start receiving lots of junk messages, but this problem can be fixed using anti-spam filtering software. It is also important to bear in mind that a mailbox with an activated catch-all functionality cannot forward incoming email messages to a third-party address.
Catch-all Emails in Hosting
If you’ve got a hosting plan with us and you’d like to enable the catch-all functionality for a certain email mailbox that you have in the web hosting account, it’ll take literally just a single click in the Email Manager section of your Hepsia Control Panel to do this. A catch-all button is available next to each and every email address that you have created under any domain registered in the account. You can choose one email address per domain name by clicking the respective button. This will enable the feature straight away, so all messages sent to miswritten addresses will be re-sent there. Clicking the button again will turn off the catch-all feature. If you’ve got enabled email forwarding, our system will exhibit a cautionary message and you will not be able to activate the catch-all feature till you delete the forwarding or you can simply choose another mailbox to be the catch-all one.
Catch-all Emails in Semi-dedicated Servers
You will be able to configure a catch-all address with no more than one click in case you’ve got a semi-dedicated plan with us and your email messages are handled by our cloud hosting platform. All the email addresses that you set up using any domain name hosted in the semi-dedicated hosting account will be displayed in the Hepsia Control Panel’s Email Manager section. Each of them will have a small-size "Catch-all" icon next to it, so all it will take to enable this feature will be to click that icon. In the very same fashion you will be able to disable the feature, if you don’t need it anymore. Our system will let you know if you’re attempting to enable a second catch-all email address for a given domain or in case there’s activated email forwarding, but it will never alter or deactivate any feature automatically or without your consent.
