A catch-all e-mailbox is one that captures all the messages sent to inactive addresses. For instance, if your address is firstname.lastname@example.org, but somebody mistypes it and sends an email to email@example.com, it will still be received in the catch-all mailbox that you have created. Just one mailbox per domain name can have this feature activated and in this way you will never miss emails because the other side has an out-of-date address or has made a typographical error. The downside of creating a catch-all mailbox is that you may start receiving a lot of unsolicited bulk messages, but this issue can be fixed by using anti-spam protection software. It is also crucial to know that a mailbox with an active catch-all functionality cannot forward inbound emails to a 3rd-party email address.
Catch-all Emails in Cloud Hosting
You will be able to configure a catch-all email mailbox easily in case you’ve got a cloud hosting
plan with us. The Email Manager tool in our custom-built Hepsia hosting Control Panel is feature-loaded, yet extremely user-friendly, and it will enable you to enable various options, including the catch-all one, with just several clicks. All the email addresses that you have set up will be displayed alphabetically in this section and to the right of each one of them you’ll see a tiny "Catch-all" button. Clicking it once will activate this option, clicking it once more will deactivate it. As you can have just one such catch-all mailbox per domain, our system will alert you if you already have a different one with this feature enabled or if you have activated email forwarding.
Catch-all Emails in Semi-dedicated Hosting
You will be able to configure a catch-all address with no more than a click if you have a Linux semi-dedicated hosting package
with us and your emails are handled by our cloud hosting platform. All the mailboxes that you create with any domain name hosted in the semi-dedicated account will be listed in the Email Manager section of your Hepsia Control Panel. Each of them will have a small "Catch-all" icon next to it, so all it will take to enable this functionality will be to click that icon. In the very same way you’ll be able to disable the feature, if you don’t need it anymore. Our system will inform you if you’re attempting to activate a second catch-all address for a given domain or in case there is activated email forwarding, but it’ll never disable or alter any feature automatically and without your consent.
