A catch-all mailbox is one that captures all the email messages sent to invalid addresses. For instance, if your address is info@domain.com, but someone mistypes it and sends an email to inof@domain.com, it will still be received in the catch-all mailbox that you have configured. Only one mailbox per domain can have this feature enabled and in this way you will never miss emails because the other side has an obsolete email address or has made a spelling mistake. The negative aspect of configuring a catch-all mailbox is that you may begin receiving a lot of unsolicited emails, but this problem can be fixed using anti-spam filtering software. It is also crucial to bear in mind that a mailbox with an enabled catch-all feature cannot redirect inbound messages to a third-party address.
Catch-all Emails in Shared Web Hosting
You will be able to set up a catch-all mailbox effortlessly in case you have a shared web hosting plan with our company. The Email Manager tool in our in-house created Hepsia hosting Control Panel is fully featured, yet astonishingly easy to use, and it will permit you to enable various options, including the catch-all one, with just several clicks of the mouse. All the email addresses that you have will be listed in alphabetical order in this section and next to each of them you’ll see a mini "Catch-all" button. Clicking it once will activate the feature, clicking on it twice will disable it. Since you can have just one such mailbox per domain, our system will notify you if you’ve already got another one with this feature enabled or if you’ve got active email forwarding.
Catch-all Emails in Semi-dedicated Hosting
The in-house developed Hepsia Control Panel that is included with each and every semi-dedicated server package that we offer will permit you to set up a catch-all email mailbox without any difficulties even if you don’t have much web/email hosting experience. All it takes to accomplish that is to click the catch-all icon, which will be to the right of each email address that you have created with your domain names in the hosting Control Panel’s Email Manager section. As you can have just one single mailbox with this feature per domain, our system will warn you if you have already created another catch-all mailbox or if the one that you wish to use has email forwarding enabled. In case you decide that you do not want the feature anymore, you can turn it off by clicking once again on the very same icon. The Email Manager will also allow you to see your catch-all mailboxes at a glance.
