A catch-all email mailbox is one that gathers all the emails sent to inactive 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 configured. Just one single mailbox per domain name can have this feature enabled and thus you will never miss emails because the other side has an out-of-date email address or has made a typographical error. The downside of having a catch-all mailbox is that you may begin receiving a lot of spam, but this issue can be rectified by using anti-spam filtering software. It’s also vital to keep in mind that a mailbox with an active catch-all functionality cannot forward inbound emails to a third-party address.
Catch-all Emails in Website Hosting
You’ll be able to set up a catch-all e-mailbox effortlessly if you’ve got a website hosting plan with our company. The Email Manager in our in-house developed Hepsia hosting Control Panel is fully featured, yet stunningly easy to work with, and it will allow you to activate various options, including the catch-all one, with just several clicks of the mouse. All the mailboxes that you’ve created will be enumerated alphabetically in this section and on the right-hand side of each one of them you will see a small "Catch-all" button. Clicking it once will enable this option, clicking it again will deactivate it. Since you can have just one such catch-all mailbox per domain, our system will notify you if you already have another mailbox with this option activated or if you’ve got enabled email forwarding.
Catch-all Emails in Semi-dedicated Hosting
The in-house created Hepsia hosting Control Panel that comes with each semi-dedicated server package that we offer will allow you to create a catch-all email mailbox effortlessly even in case you don’t have much email/web hosting experience. All it takes to achieve that is to click on the catch-all icon, which will be on the right-hand side of each email address that you have created using your domains in the Email Manager section of the hosting Control Panel. As you can have just one mailbox with this feature per domain, our system will notify you if you have already set up a different catch-all mailbox or if the one that you want to use has email forwarding activated. In case you reach the decision that you do not need the feature any longer, 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.
