A catch-all email mailbox is one that gathers all the emails sent to invalid email addresses. For instance, if your email address is info@domain.com, but somebody miswrites it and sends an email message to inof@domain.com, it will still be received in the catch-all mailbox that you have created. Only one single mailbox per domain name can have this feature enabled and in this way you’ll never miss emails because the other side has an outdated email address or has made a spelling error.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 emails, but this issue can be resolved using anti-spam filtering software. It is also vital to know that a mailbox with an activated catch-all feature cannot redirect inbound messages to a third-party address.
Catch-all Emails in Cloud Hosting
Creating a catch-all email mailbox will be truly easy in case you have a Linux cloud hosting package with us. You can activate the feature through our advanced, albeit easy-to-work-with Email Manager, which is an indivisible part of the Hepsia hosting Control Panel, via which you’ll administer your shared web hosting account. You’ll find all the email addresses that you have set up displayed alphabetically and next to each of them there will be a small "Catch-all" icon, which will quickly show you whether a particular mailbox gets all the emails pertaining to a certain domain or not. With one single mouse click on the icon you can enable or disable this feature at any time. In case there’s activated email forwarding or in case a different mailbox has already been configured as a catch-all one for a particular domain name, you’ll get an alert from our system. The latter won’t disable/replace anything automatically or without your permission.
Catch-all Emails in Semi-dedicated Hosting
A catch-all address can be created with a couple of clicks if you’ve got a Linux semi-dedicated package with our company. The semi-dedicated account will be administered via our custom-built Hepsia hosting Control Panel and you’ll be able to set up mailboxes with any domain registered there. To enable the catch-all functionality for a specific mailbox, you’ll have to click on the logo with the exact same name, which will be next to each email address. Disabling this functionality can be achieved in the very same way and will not take more than one click either. If a catch-all mailbox has already been activated for a particular domain name, you will receive a warning alert. The same is valid if the mailbox that you’d like to be a catch-all one has email forwarding enabled, as our system will never modify or deactivate anything automatically.
