A catch-all e-mailbox is one that captures all the emails sent to invalid email addresses. For instance, if your email address is email@example.com, but somebody misspells it and sends a message to firstname.lastname@example.org, it will still be received in the catch-all mailbox that you have set up. Just one mailbox per domain name can have this feature activated and thus you will never miss messages because the other party has an outdated address or has made a typo. The downside of creating a catch-all mailbox is that you may start receiving lots of junk email messages, but this problem can be solved using an anti-spam protection solution. It is also vital to know that a mailbox with an enabled catch-all functionality cannot redirect incoming email messages to a third-party address.
Catch-all Emails in Web Hosting
If you have a Linux web hosting
with us and you would like to activate the catch-all option for a particular email mailbox that you have in your web hosting account, it’ll take literally only a single mouse click in the Email Manager section of your Hepsia Control Panel to achieve that. A catch-all button is available on the right side of each email address that you have created under any domain name hosted in your account. You can choose one single email address per domain name by clicking the respective button. This will enable the feature immediately, so all emails sent to miswritten email addresses will be re-sent there. Clicking the button once more will deactivate the catch-all feature. If you have activated email forwarding, our system will exhibit a warning note and you won’t be able to activate the catch-all feature until you remove the forwarding or you can simply choose a different mailbox to be the catch-all one.
Catch-all Emails in Semi-dedicated Hosting
The custom-built Hepsia Control Panel that is included with every semi-dedicated server
package that we’re offering will allow you to create a catch-all e-mailbox effortlessly even in case you don’t have much email/web hosting experience. All you need to do to accomplish that is click on the catch-all icon, which will be on the right-hand side of each email address that you’ve created with your domain names in the Email Manager section of the Control Panel. As you can have just one mailbox with this feature per domain, our system will warn you if you have already set up a different catch-all mailbox or if the one that you’d like to use has email forwarding enabled. In case you decide that you do not need this feature anymore, you can disable it by clicking again on the exact same icon. The Email Manager section will also permit you to view your catch-all mailboxes at a glance.
