A catch-all e-mailbox is one that gathers all the emails sent to nonexistent email addresses. For example, if your email address is info@domain.com, but someone 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 single mailbox per domain name can have this feature enabled and in this way you’ll never miss emails because the other side has an obsolete address or has made a spelling mistake. The negative aspect of using a catch-all mailbox is that you may start receiving a lot of junk messages, but this problem can be resolved by using anti-spam filtering software. It’s also vital to bear in mind that a mailbox with an active catch-all functionality cannot redirect incoming messages to a 3rd-party email address.
Catch-all Emails in Cloud Hosting
You’ll be able to set up a catch-all e-mailbox without any effort if you have a cloud hosting plan with our company. The Email Manager tool in our custom-developed Hepsia hosting Control Panel is feature-laden, yet incredibly easy to work with, and it will permit you to activate different options, including the catch-all one, with just a couple of clicks of the mouse. All the mailboxes that you’ve got will be enumerated in alphabetical order in this section and on the right-hand side of each one of them you will find a small-size "Catch-all" icon. Clicking on it once will enable this feature, clicking it once more will disable it. As you can have just one such catch-all mailbox per domain name, our system will notify you if you already have a different mailbox with this feature enabled or if you have active email forwarding.
Catch-all Emails in Semi-dedicated Hosting
A catch-all address can be configured with a few mouse clicks if you have a Linux semi-dedicated hosting package with our company. The hosting account will be managed via our custom-developed Hepsia Control Panel and you will be able to create mailboxes with any domain hosted here. To activate the catch-all functionality for a certain mailbox, you will have to click on the sign with the exact same name, which will be next to each email address. Deactivating this functionality can be achieved in the very same fashion and will not take more than a click either. If a catch-all mailbox has already been activated for a certain domain, you will get a warning. The same goes if the mailbox that you want to be a catch-all one has email forwarding activated, as our system will never deactivate or alter any feature automatically.
