A catch-all email mailbox is one that gathers all the messages sent to invalid email addresses. For instance, if your address is email@example.com, but somebody misspells it and sends an email message to firstname.lastname@example.org, it will still be received in the catch-all mailbox that you have created. Only one single mailbox per domain can have this feature activated and thus you’ll never miss messages because the other party has an outdated email address or has made a spelling mistake. The drawback of creating a catch-all mailbox is that you may start receiving lots of junk email messages, but this issue can be rectified by using an anti-spam protection solution. It’s also vital to know that a mailbox with an active catch-all functionality cannot forward incoming email messages to a 3rd-party mailbox.
Catch-all Emails in Website Hosting
Creating a catch-all mailbox will be unbelievably easy in case you’ve got a Linux website hosting
with our company. You can activate the feature through our advanced, albeit simple-to-work-with Email Manager, which is included in the Hepsia hosting Control Panel, via which you will administer your web hosting account. You’ll find all the email addresses that you have created shown alphabetically and on the right side of each one there will be a small-size "Catch-all" icon, which will instantly tell you if a certain mailbox stores all the messages for a certain domain or not. With a single mouse click on the icon you can enable or disable the feature at any moment. If there is enabled email forwarding or in case some other mailbox has already been set up as a catch-all one for a given domain, you’ll get a warning text message from our system. The latter won’t replace/deactivate anything automatically or without your permission.
Catch-all Emails in Semi-dedicated Servers
You’ll be able to create a catch-all address with no more than a click in case you have a semi-dedicated server
with our company and your emails are handled by our cloud web hosting platform. All the addresses that you set up with any domain hosted in the semi-dedicated hosting account will be listed in the Email Manager section of your Hepsia hosting Control Panel. Each of them will have a mini "Catch-all" icon next to it, so all it will take to activate this functionality will be to click on that icon. In the very same way you’ll be able to remove the feature, in case you don’t need it anymore. Our system will warn you if you’re attempting to enable a 2nd catch-all email address for a given domain name or in case there’s enabled email forwarding, but it will never modify or disable any feature automatically or without your permission.
