A catch-all email mailbox is one that captures all the messages sent to non-existent addresses. For instance, if your email address is info@domain.com, but somebody misspells it and sends an email to inof@domain.com, it will still be received in the catch-all mailbox that you have set up. Just one single mailbox per domain can have this feature activated and in this way you’ll never miss emails because the other party has an outdated email address or has made a spelling error.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 using a catch-all mailbox is that you may begin receiving a lot of spam messages, but this issue can be resolved by using an anti-spam filtering solution. It is also essential to bear in mind that a mailbox with an active catch-all feature cannot redirect inbound emails to a 3rd-party mailbox.
Catch-all Emails in Cloud Website Hosting
If you’ve got a cloud website hosting with us and you would like to activate the catch-all functionality for a certain email mailbox that you’ve got in your account, it’ll take literally just a single mouse click in the Email Manager section of your Hepsia hosting Control Panel to do this. A catch-all button is available to the right of each email address that you have created under any domain name hosted in the account. You can pick one address per domain by clicking on the respective button. This will enable the feature momentarily, so all email messages sent to miswritten addresses will be re-sent there. Clicking the button again will turn off the catch-all feature. In case you’ve got activated email forwarding, our system will exhibit a cautionary message and you will not be able to activate the catch-all feature till you deactivate the forwarding or you can simply select another mailbox to be the catch-all one.
Catch-all Emails in Semi-dedicated Servers
The custom-built Hepsia hosting Control Panel that comes with each and every semi-dedicated server plan that we’re offering will allow you to create a catch-all email mailbox easily even in case you don’t have much web/email hosting experience. All you need to do to accomplish that is click on the catch-all icon, which will be to the right of each email address that you’ve set up using your domain names in the hosting Control Panel’s Email Manager section. Since you can have only one single mailbox with this feature per domain, our system will let you know if you have already set up another catch-all mailbox or if the one that you wish to use has email forwarding activated. If you reach the decision that you don’t need this feature any longer, you can remove it by clicking once again on the same icon. The Email Manager will also allow you to view your catch-all mailboxes at a glance.
