A catch-all e-mailbox is one that collects all the messages sent to nonexistent email addresses. For example, if your email address is info@domain.com, but someone misspells it and sends an email to inof@domain.com, it will still be received in the catch-all mailbox that you have set up. Only one mailbox per domain can have this feature enabled and thus you’ll never miss emails because the other side has an out-of-date email address or has made a spelling mistake. The downside of using a catch-all mailbox is that you may start receiving plenty of spam emails, but this issue can be rectified using an anti-spam protection solution. It’s also crucial to remember that a mailbox with an activated catch-all functionality cannot redirect inbound email messages to a 3rd-party email address.
Catch-all Emails in Cloud Hosting
You’ll be able to set up a catch-all email mailbox without effort in case you’ve got a cloud hosting account with us. The Email Manager in our custom-developed Hepsia hosting Control Panel is feature-rich, yet very user-friendly, and it will allow you to activate different options, including the catch-all one, with only a couple of clicks. All the email addresses that you’ve set up will be enumerated alphabetically in this section and to the right of each one you will find a small-size "Catch-all" icon. Clicking it once will activate this option, clicking it once again will deactivate it. Since you can have just one such mailbox per domain, our system will alert you if you already have a different one with this feature enabled or if you’ve got active email forwarding.
Catch-all Emails in Semi-dedicated Servers
The custom-created Hepsia Control Panel that is included with each semi-dedicated server plan that we offer will allow you to create a catch-all email mailbox with ease even in case you do not have much web/email hosting experience. All you have to do to achieve that is click on the catch-all icon, which will be to the right of each email address that you have set up with your domain names in the Control Panel’s Email Manager section. As you can have just one single mailbox with this feature per domain name, our system will inform you if you’ve already set up a different catch-all mailbox or if the one that you would like to use has email forwarding enabled. If you reach the decision that you don’t want the feature anymore, you can turn it off by clicking again on the same icon. The Email Manager will also permit you to view your catch-all mailboxes at a glance.
