A catch-all e-mailbox is one that gathers all the messages sent to non-existent email addresses. For example, if your address is info@domain.com, but somebody mistypes it and sends an email message to inof@domain.com, it will still be received in the catch-all mailbox that you have created. Just one mailbox per domain can have this feature enabled and thus you will never miss messages because the other side has an obsolete address or has made a spelling mistake. The disadvantage of creating a catch-all mailbox is that you may begin receiving plenty of unsolicited messages, but this problem can be rectified using an anti-spam protection solution. It’s also important to remember that a mailbox with an activated catch-all functionality cannot forward incoming email messages to a third-party mailbox.
Catch-all Emails in Cloud Hosting
In case you have a Linux cloud service with our company and you’d like to activate the catch-all functionality for a given email mailbox that you’ve got in the web hosting account, it’ll take literally only a mouse click in the Email Manager section of your Hepsia hosting Control Panel to accomplish this. A catch-all button is available next to each email address that you have created under any domain registered in your account. You can pick one single address per domain name by clicking on the respective button. This will activate the feature instantaneously, so all emails sent to miswritten email addresses will be received there. Clicking on the button for a second time will turn off the catch-all feature. If you’ve got active email forwarding, our system will show a warning message and you will not be able to enable the catch-all feature till you remove the forwarding or you can simply pick some other mailbox to be the catch-all one.
Catch-all Emails in Semi-dedicated Servers
A catch-all email address can be configured with a few clicks in case you have a semi-dedicated server with our company. The hosting account will be administered via our custom-developed Hepsia Control Panel and you’ll be able to create mailboxes with any domain name hosted there. To activate the catch-all functionality for a mailbox, you’ll need to click on the logo with the same name, which will be on the right side of each email address. Deactivating this feature can be achieved in the exact same way and will not take more than one click either. If the catch-all functionality has already been enabled for a specific domain, you’ll get a warning alert. The same is valid if the mailbox that you wish to be a catch-all one has email forwarding activated, as our system will never alter or deactivate anything automatically.
