A catch-all mailbox is one that collects all the email messages sent to invalid 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 configured. Only one mailbox per domain can have this feature enabled and thus you will never miss emails because the other party has an out-of-date address or has made a mistake. The downside of using a catch-all mailbox is that you may start receiving a lot of junk email messages, but this problem can be fixed by using anti-spam filtering software. It is also vital to remember that a mailbox with an activated catch-all feature cannot forward incoming emails to a third-party email address.
Catch-all Emails in Website Hosting
If you’ve got a website hosting with us and you wish to activate the catch-all functionality for a given email mailbox that you have in your hosting account, it’ll take literally just one single click in the Email Manager section of your Hepsia Control Panel to do that. A catch-all button is available next to each and every email address that you have set up under any domain registered in the account. You can choose one single email address per domain name by clicking the respective button. This will enable the feature momentarily, so all email messages sent to mistyped email addresses will be re-sent there. Clicking the button once again will turn off the catch-all feature. In case you’ve got enabled email forwarding, our system will show a warning notice and you won’t be able to activate the catch-all feature till you deactivate the forwarding or you can simply choose a different mailbox to be the catch-all one.
Catch-all Emails in Semi-dedicated Servers
A catch-all address can be configured with several clicks of the mouse in case you have a semi-dedicated server with our company. The hosting account will be administered through our in-house built Hepsia Control Panel and you’ll be able to set up email addresses using any domain name registered here. To activate the catch-all feature for a mailbox, you will need to click on the button with the exact same name, which will be next to each mailbox. Disabling this functionality can be achieved in the same manner and will not take more than one click either. If the catch-all option has already been enabled for a certain domain name, you’ll get a warning message. The same goes if the mailbox that you wish to be a catch-all one has email forwarding enabled, as our system will never deactivate or replace anything automatically.
