A catch-all mailbox is one that captures all the emails sent to invalid addresses. For example, if your address is info@domain.com, but someone misspells it and sends an email to inof@domain.com, it will still be received in the catch-all mailbox that you have created. Just one single mailbox per domain can have this feature enabled and thus you will never miss messages because the other party has an obsolete address or has made a mistake. The disadvantage of configuring a catch-all mailbox is that you may start receiving a lot of unsolicited bulk emails, but this issue can be resolved using an anti-spam protection solution. It’s also essential to bear in mind that a mailbox with an enabled catch-all feature cannot forward inbound email messages to a 3rd-party email address.
Catch-all Emails in Hosting
Creating a catch-all email mailbox will be stunningly easy in case you’ve got a hosting with us. You can enable this option through our advanced, albeit simple-to-work-with Email Manager, which is included in the Hepsia Control Panel, via which you will manage your shared hosting account. You’ll find all the mailboxes that you’ve set up enumerated alphabetically and on the right side of each one of them there will be a small "Catch-all" icon, which will immediately notify you whether a specific mailbox stores all the emails pertaining to a given domain or not. With a single mouse click on the icon you can activate or deactivate this option at any moment. In case there’s active email forwarding or in case a different mailbox has already been set up as a catch-all one for a given domain, you’ll get a warning notice from our system. The latter will not replace/disable anything automatically or without your consent.
Catch-all Emails in Semi-dedicated Servers
A catch-all email address can be configured with several clicks in case you have a semi-dedicated server with our company. The semi-dedicated account will be managed via our in-house created Hepsia Control Panel and you will be able to create mailboxes with any domain registered there. To enable the catch-all functionality for a mailbox, you will have to click on the logo with the exact same name, which will be on the right side of each email address. Disabling this feature can be done in the exact same fashion and will not require more than a click either. If the catch-all feature has already been enabled for a certain domain name, you will receive a notification. The same goes if the mailbox that you’d like to be a catch-all one has email forwarding enabled, as our system will never change or disable any feature automatically.
