A catch-all e-mailbox is one that gathers all the email messages sent to inactive addresses. For example, if your address is info@domain.com, but somebody miswrites it and sends an email 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per domain name can have this feature enabled and in this way you will never miss emails because the other party has an outdated email address or has made a spelling mistake. The negative aspect of setting up a catch-all mailbox is that you may start receiving plenty of unsolicited bulk emails, but this problem can be resolved by using an anti-spam filtering solution. It is also vital to bear in mind that a mailbox with an enabled catch-all feature cannot forward inbound messages to a 3rd-party email address.
Catch-all Emails in Shared Web Hosting
In case you host a domain name on our cloud web hosting platform and you have a shared web hosting account, you’ll be able to enable the catch-all feature for any email mailbox that you create under the domain name. The Hepsia hosting Control Panel’s Email Manager section offers quite a few features, but it is remarkably easy to work with, so creating a catch-all mailbox requires just a single click. All the email addresses that you have created will be shown in this section alphabetically and you’ll only need to click the "Catch-all" button for the particular email address. Our system will alert you if there is already another catch-all mailbox activated for that domain or if the one that you would like to be a catch-all mailbox has email forwarding enabled, so you can either deactivate the latter feature or pick some other mailbox. Deactivating the catch-all feature is just as easy and takes one more click on the same button.
Catch-all Emails in Semi-dedicated Servers
You’ll be able to create a catch-all email address with no more than a click in case you have a semi-dedicated plan with our company and your emails are handled by our cloud hosting platform. All the email addresses that you set up using any domain hosted in the account will be listed in the Hepsia Control Panel’s Email Manager section. Each of them will have a mini "Catch-all" icon next to it, so all it will take to activate this option will be to click that icon. In the same fashion you will be able to turn off the feature, in case you don’t need it any longer. Our system will warn you if you are attempting to enable a second catch-all address for a specific domain name or in case there’s enabled email forwarding, but it will never disable or change anything automatically and without your approval.
