A catch-all mailbox is one that collects all the emails sent to invalid addresses. For instance, if your email address is info@domain.com, but someone miswrites it and sends a message 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mailbox per domain can have this feature enabled and thus you will never miss messages because the other party has an out-of-date email address or has made a typo. The negative aspect of having a catch-all mailbox is that you may start receiving a lot of unsolicited bulk messages, but this problem can be rectified by using anti-spam protection software. It is also crucial to remember that a mailbox with an active catch-all feature cannot forward inbound messages to a third-party address.
Catch-all Emails in Cloud Hosting
In case you’ve got a Linux cloud hosting with our company and you’d like to activate the catch-all feature for a given e-mailbox that you have in your web hosting account, it’ll take literally only a single click in the Email Manager section of your Hepsia hosting Control Panel to accomplish that. A catch-all button is available to the right of each and every email address that you have created under any domain hosted in the account. You can select one address per domain by clicking the respective button. This will enable the feature right away, so all emails sent to misspelled addresses will be delivered there. Clicking on the button once again will deactivate the catch-all feature. If you’ve got activated email forwarding, our system will exhibit a warning notice and you will not be able to activate the catch-all feature until you delete the forwarding or you can simply pick a different mailbox to be the catch-all one.
Catch-all Emails in Semi-dedicated Hosting
A catch-all address can be configured with a few mouse clicks in case you have a Linux semi-dedicated hosting with us. The hosting account will be administered via our custom-created Hepsia hosting Control Panel and you’ll be able to create mailboxes under any domain hosted here. To activate the catch-all feature for a given mailbox, you’ll need to click the sign with the same name, which will be on the right-hand side of each email address. Deactivating this option can be accomplished in the exact same fashion and will not take more than one click either. If the catch-all feature has already been activated for a particular domain name, you’ll get a warning message. The same goes if the mailbox that you’d like to be a catch-all one has email forwarding enabled, as our system will never edit or disable any feature automatically.
