A catch-all email mailbox is one that gathers all the messages sent to non-existent email addresses. For example, if your email address is info@domain.com, but somebody misspells it and sends a message to inof@domain.com, it will still be received in the catch-all mailbox that you have created. Only one single mailbox per domain name can have this feature activated and thus you’ll never miss messages because the other side has an outdated address or has made a spelling mistake. The negative aspect of creating a catch-all mailbox is that you may start receiving plenty of spam messages, but this problem can be resolved by using anti-spam protection software. It is also essential to remember that a mailbox with an enabled catch-all functionality cannot redirect incoming emails to a third-party address.
Catch-all Emails in Cloud Hosting
You’ll be able to create a catch-all mailbox without any difficulty in case you have a cloud hosting account with our company. The Email Manager in our in-house built Hepsia Control Panel is feature-loaded, yet amazingly simple to use, and it will allow you to activate various features, including the catch-all one, with only a couple of mouse clicks. All the email addresses that you’ve set up will be shown in alphabetical order in this section and next to each one of them you’ll find a mini "Catch-all" symbol. Clicking on it once will activate this feature, clicking on it twice will deactivate it. As you can have just one such mailbox per domain, our system will warn you if you’ve already got another mailbox with this feature enabled or if you’ve got active email forwarding.
Catch-all Emails in Semi-dedicated Hosting
A catch-all email address can be created with a couple of clicks of the mouse if you have a Linux semi-dedicated hosting package with us. The hosting account will be administered through our in-house developed Hepsia Control Panel and you will be able to create mailboxes under any domain hosted there. To enable the catch-all functionality for a certain mailbox, you will need to click on the sign with the same name, which will be to the right of each mailbox. Disabling this functionality can be achieved in the very same fashion and will not take more than one click either. In case the catch-all functionality has already been enabled for a particular domain, you’ll receive a notification. The same goes if the mailbox that you’d like to be a catch-all one has email forwarding activated, as our system will never alter or deactivate any feature automatically.
