A catch-all mailbox is one that gathers all the messages sent to non-existent addresses. For instance, if your email address is firstname.lastname@example.org, but someone misspells it and sends an email message to email@example.com, it will still be received in the catch-all mailbox that you have configured. Only one single mailbox per domain name can have this feature activated and thus you will never miss messages because the other side has an outdated email address or has made a typo. The negative aspect of configuring a catch-all mailbox is that you may begin receiving a lot of unsolicited bulk messages, but this problem can be solved by using anti-spam protection software. It’s also important to remember that a mailbox with an activated catch-all feature cannot redirect inbound email messages to a 3rd-party address.
Catch-all Emails in Cloud Website Hosting
You will be able to create a catch-all e-mailbox without difficulty in case you’ve got a cloud website hosting
account with us. The Email Manager tool in our in-house built Hepsia Control Panel is full-featured, yet really easy to work with, and it will allow you to enable different features, including the catch-all one, with only several mouse clicks. All the mailboxes that you have set up will be listed alphabetically in this section and to the right of each one you’ll find a small-size "Catch-all" logo. Clicking on it once will activate this option, clicking it once more will deactivate it. Since you can have only one such mailbox per domain, our system will inform you if you’ve already got another one with this option activated or if you’ve got active email forwarding.
Catch-all Emails in Semi-dedicated Servers
A catch-all address can be created with a few mouse clicks if you’ve got a semi-dedicated server
with us. The semi-dedicated hosting account will be managed through our in-house built Hepsia Control Panel and you will be able to create mailboxes with any domain name hosted here. To enable the catch-all option for a given mailbox, you will need to click on the icon with the same name, which will be next to each email address. Deactivating this option can be accomplished in the very same way and will not require more than a click either. In case a catch-all mailbox has already been activated for a specific domain name, you’ll receive a warning message. The same is valid if the mailbox that you wish to be a catch-all one has email forwarding activated, as our system will never disable or change anything automatically.
