A catch-all e-mailbox is one that gathers all the messages sent to nonexistent addresses. For example, if your email 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per domain can have this feature activated and in this way you’ll never miss messages because the other party has an outdated address or has made a typographical error. The downside of configuring a catch-all mailbox is that you may start receiving plenty of junk emails, but this problem can be fixed using an anti-spam filtering solution. It is also important to bear in mind that a mailbox with an active catch-all functionality cannot forward inbound messages to a 3rd-party email address.
Catch-all Emails in Cloud Hosting
If you have a cloud hosting with our company and you would like to activate the catch-all functionality for a certain e-mailbox that you’ve got in your account, it will take literally just one mouse click in the Email Manager section of your Hepsia Control Panel to do this. A catch-all button is available on the right-hand side of each email address that you have created under any domain name hosted in the account. You can select one single email address per domain name by clicking the corresponding button. This will activate the feature instantly, so all emails sent to misspelled email addresses will be delivered there. Clicking on the button again will disable the catch-all feature. If you have active email forwarding, our system will show a cautionary notice and you won’t be able to activate the catch-all feature till you deactivate the forwarding or you can simply pick another mailbox to be the catch-all one.
Catch-all Emails in Semi-dedicated Servers
The catch-all feature can be activated without any effort if you’ve got a semi-dedicated server account with our company. All the email addresses that you’ve set up with the domains hosted in the semi-dedicated server account will be listed in the Hepsia hosting Control Panel’s Email Manager section and you’ll notice a small-size button conveniently located right next to each of them. With only one single click of the mouse, you can enable or disable the catch-all option for any mailbox of your choosing on the condition that there isn't another mailbox under the same domain with the option already activated and there isn't active email forwarding. Instead, you can right-click on an email address and enable this feature through the contextual menu that will surface. If any of the requirements for creating a catch-all mailbox is not fulfilled, our system will notify you, but will not disable or replace anything automatically.
