A catch-all email mailbox is one that gathers all the email messages sent to invalid email addresses. For example, if your address is info@domain.com, but someone mistypes it and sends an email to inof@domain.com, it will still be received in the catch-all mailbox that you have created. Just one mailbox per domain can have this feature activated and in this way you’ll never miss messages because the other party has an outdated address or has made a spelling mistake. The drawback of using a catch-all mailbox is that you may begin receiving lots of junk messages, but this problem can be rectified by using an anti-spam protection solution. It is also essential to remember that a mailbox with an activated catch-all feature cannot redirect incoming messages to a third-party email address.
Catch-all Emails in Website Hosting
You will be able to configure a catch-all email mailbox effortlessly if you have a website hosting plan with our company. The Email Manager tool in our in-house developed Hepsia Control Panel is feature-laden, yet remarkably easy to work with, and it will allow you to enable various options, including the catch-all one, with no more than a few mouse clicks. All the mailboxes that you’ve created will be displayed in alphabetical order in this section and to the right of each one you will notice a mini "Catch-all" button. Clicking on it once will activate the feature, clicking on it once again will disable it. Since you can have just one such mailbox per domain, our system will notify you if you already have another mailbox with this option activated or if you’ve got activated email forwarding.
Catch-all Emails in Semi-dedicated Hosting
The custom-built Hepsia Control Panel that is included with each and every semi-dedicated server plan that we’re offering will allow you to set up a catch-all mailbox without any efforts even in case you don’t have much email/web hosting experience. All it takes to do that is to click the catch-all icon, which will be to the right of each mailbox that you have set up with your domain names in the Email Manager section of the hosting Control Panel. As you can have just one mailbox with this feature per domain, our system will inform you if you’ve already configured another catch-all mailbox or if the one that you wish to use has email forwarding activated. If you decide that you do not want this feature any longer, you can deactivate it by clicking again on the exact same icon. The Email Manager will also allow you to see your catch-all mailboxes at a glance.
