A catch-all mailbox is one that captures all the messages sent to nonexistent addresses. For instance, if your email address is info@domain.com, but someone misspells 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 single mailbox per domain can have this feature enabled and thus you will never miss messages because the other party has an outdated email address or has made a spelling error. The disadvantage of having a catch-all mailbox is that you may start receiving lots of spam email messages, but this issue can be solved by using anti-spam filtering software. It is also important to bear in mind that a mailbox with an activated catch-all functionality cannot forward inbound emails to a third-party email address.
Catch-all Emails in Cloud Website Hosting
Creating a catch-all e-mailbox will be astonishingly easy if you have a Linux cloud website hosting with our company. You can activate this option through our powerful, yet intuitive Email Manager, which is built into the Hepsia Control Panel, via which you will manage the account itself. You will see all the mailboxes that you have created displayed alphabetically and next to each one of them there will be a small "Catch-all" icon, which will instantly tell you if a specific mailbox stores all the messages associated with a certain domain name or not. With one click on the icon you can activate or deactivate this option whenever you want. In case there’s activated email forwarding or in case another mailbox has already been configured as a catch-all one for a given domain, you’ll get an alert from our system. The latter won’t replace/deactivate anything automatically or without your permission.
Catch-all Emails in Semi-dedicated Hosting
A catch-all email address can be created with a few mouse clicks in case you’ve got a Linux semi-dedicated hosting with us. The semi-dedicated hosting account will be managed via our custom-created Hepsia Control Panel and you’ll be able to set up mailboxes with any domain hosted here. To enable the catch-all functionality for a particular mailbox, you will need to click on the symbol with the exact same name, which will be to the right of each mailbox. Deactivating this functionality can be accomplished in the exact same fashion and will not take more than one click either. In case the catch-all feature has already been enabled for a given domain, you will receive a warning text message. The same is valid 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.
