A catch-all e-mailbox is one that gathers all the email messages sent to nonexistent 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per domain name can have this feature activated and thus you’ll never miss messages because the other side has an out-of-date email address or has made a typo. The drawback of configuring a catch-all mailbox is that you may begin receiving lots of unsolicited bulk emails, but this problem can be solved using anti-spam filtering software. It’s also essential to know that a mailbox with an activated catch-all feature cannot forward incoming email messages to a third-party email address.
Catch-all Emails in Cloud Hosting
You will be able to set up a catch-all mailbox without difficulty if you have a cloud hosting plan with our company. The Email Manager in our in-house created Hepsia Control Panel is feature-loaded, yet extremely intuitive, and it will enable you to activate different features, including the catch-all one, with just a couple of mouse clicks. All the mailboxes that you have created will be listed alphabetically in this section and next to each one you’ll notice a tiny "Catch-all" symbol. Clicking it once will enable the feature, clicking it again will disable it. Since you can have only one such catch-all mailbox per domain, our system will warn you if you already have another one with this option enabled or if you have active email forwarding.
Catch-all Emails in Semi-dedicated Servers
The custom Hepsia Control Panel that is included with each semi-dedicated server plan that we are offering will allow you to create a catch-all e-mailbox without any difficulties even in case you do not have much web/email hosting experience. All you have to do to achieve that is click the catch-all icon, which will be on the right-hand side of each email address that you’ve set up with your domains in the Control Panel’s Email Manager section. Since you can have just one single mailbox with this feature per domain, our system will warn 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 activated. If you reach the decision that you do not need this feature any longer, you can disable it by clicking again on the exact same icon. The Email Manager section will also permit you to see your catch-all mailboxes at a glance.
