A catch-all mailbox is one that collects all the emails sent to nonexistent email addresses. For example, if your email address is info@domain.com, but somebody mistypes 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mailbox per domain can have this feature activated and thus you will never miss messages because the other party has an out-of-date email address or has made a typo. The disadvantage of setting up a catch-all mailbox is that you may begin receiving a lot of spam emails, but this problem can be resolved using anti-spam protection software. It is also vital to know that a mailbox with an activated catch-all feature cannot forward inbound emails to a 3rd-party mailbox.
Catch-all Emails in Web Hosting
If you have a web hosting with us and you want to activate the catch-all feature for a specific mailbox that you’ve got in your web hosting account, it’ll take literally just one single mouse click in the Email Manager section of your Hepsia hosting Control Panel to do this. A catch-all button is available on the right-hand side of each and every email address that you have set up under any domain name registered in your account. You can choose one single email address per domain name by clicking the corresponding button. This will activate the feature instantaneously, so all messages sent to misspelled email addresses will be re-sent there. Clicking the button once more will turn off the catch-all feature. If you have active email forwarding, our system will display a warning message and you will not be able to activate the catch-all feature unless you delete the forwarding or you can simply choose a different mailbox to be the catch-all one.
Catch-all Emails in Semi-dedicated Servers
The catch-all feature can be enabled without any difficulty in case you’ve got a semi-dedicated server plan with us. All the email addresses that you’ve created using the domains hosted in your account will be shown in the Email Manager section of your Hepsia hosting Control Panel and you will find a small-size button handily located directly next to each one. With only one single mouse click, you can activate or deactivate the catch-all option for any mailbox of your liking provided that there isn't another mailbox under the same domain with this option already enabled and there isn't active email forwarding. Alternatively, you can right-click on an email address and enable this feature through the context menu that will come into view. In case any of the preconditions for configuring a catch-all mailbox is not fulfilled, our system will notify you, but will not replace or disable anything automatically.
