A catch-all e-mailbox is one that captures all the emails sent to non-existent addresses. For instance, if your email address is info@domain.com, but someone mistypes it and sends a message to inof@domain.com, it will still be received in the catch-all mailbox that you have configured. Just one mailbox per domain name can have this feature enabled and in this way you’ll never miss emails because the other party has an outdated email address or has made a spelling error. The drawback of having a catch-all mailbox is that you may start receiving lots of unsolicited messages, but this problem can be rectified using an anti-spam filtering solution. It’s also important to know that a mailbox with an active catch-all functionality cannot forward inbound messages to a 3rd-party email address.
Catch-all Emails in Cloud Hosting
Setting up a catch-all mailbox will be astonishingly easy if you have a Linux cloud hosting with us. You can enable the feature through our powerful, yet simple-to-work-with Email Manager, which is integrated into the Hepsia Control Panel, via which you’ll administer your web hosting account. You will find all the email addresses that you have set up listed alphabetically and next to each of them there will be a small "Catch-all" icon, which will immediately reveal to you whether a particular mailbox receives all the messages pertaining to a given domain name or not. With one single mouse click on the icon you can enable or disable the feature whenever you wish. In case there is enabled email forwarding or in case another mailbox has already been set up as a catch-all one for a certain domain, you’ll get a warning notification from our system. The latter will not replace/disable anything automatically or without your approval.
Catch-all Emails in Semi-dedicated Servers
The custom Hepsia hosting Control Panel that is included with each semi-dedicated server package that we offer will allow you to set up a catch-all mailbox without effort even if you don’t have much email/web hosting experience. All you need to do to accomplish that is click the catch-all icon, which will be to the right of each email address that you have created with your domain names in the Email Manager section of the hosting Control Panel. As you can have only one single mailbox with this feature per domain name, our system will inform you if you’ve already configured a different catch-all mailbox or if the one that you want to use has email forwarding enabled. If you reach the decision that you do not want this feature any longer, you can remove it by clicking once again on the very same icon. The Email Manager section will also permit you to view your catch-all mailboxes at a glance.
