A catch-all mailbox is one that captures all the email messages sent to non-existent email addresses. For instance, if your address is email@example.com, but someone misspells it and sends a message to firstname.lastname@example.org, it will still be received in the catch-all mailbox that you have configured. Just one mailbox per domain can have this feature enabled and thus you’ll never miss messages because the other side has an obsolete address or has made a typo. The disadvantage of using a catch-all mailbox is that you may begin receiving a lot of unsolicited messages, but this problem can be fixed using anti-spam filtering software. It is also important to bear in mind that a mailbox with an activated catch-all functionality cannot redirect incoming email messages to a third-party email address.
Catch-all Emails in Shared Hosting
You’ll be able to configure a catch-all email mailbox with ease if you have a shared hosting
plan with us. The Email Manager tool in our custom-created Hepsia hosting Control Panel is feature-laden, yet really simple to work with, and it will permit you to activate various options, including the catch-all one, with only several clicks. All the mailboxes that you’ve set up will be displayed alphabetically in this section and next to each one you’ll find a small-size "Catch-all" symbol. Clicking it once will activate this feature, clicking on it once more will disable it. As you can have only one such mailbox per domain, our system will warn you if you’ve already got another mailbox with this option enabled or if you have activated email forwarding.
Catch-all Emails in Semi-dedicated Servers
A catch-all address can be created with a couple of clicks if you’ve got a Linux semi-dedicated hosting service
with us. The semi-dedicated hosting account will be managed through our in-house built Hepsia Control Panel and you will be able to set up email addresses under any domain name registered here. To enable the catch-all option for a mailbox, you’ll need to click on the sign with the exact same name, which will be next to each email address. Deactivating this feature can be done in the exact same fashion and will not take more than a click either. In case a catch-all mailbox has already been activated for a specific domain name, you’ll get a warning notification. The same goes if the mailbox that you want to be a catch-all one has email forwarding activated, as our system will never deactivate or change any feature automatically.
