A catch-all mailbox is one that collects all the emails sent to non-existent addresses. For instance, if your email address is email@example.com, but somebody miswrites it and sends an email to firstname.lastname@example.org, it will still be received in the catch-all mailbox that you have created. Only one single mailbox per domain can have this feature enabled and in this way you’ll never miss emails because the other side has an obsolete address or has made a mistake. The negative aspect of creating a catch-all mailbox is that you may begin receiving lots of unsolicited emails, but this issue can be resolved by using an anti-spam protection solution. It’s also vital to bear in mind that a mailbox with an enabled catch-all functionality cannot redirect incoming emails to a 3rd-party mailbox.
Catch-all Emails in Shared Hosting
You will be able to configure a catch-all e-mailbox without any effort in case you have a shared hosting
plan with our company. The Email Manager tool in our custom Hepsia Control Panel is fully featured, yet very intuitive, and it will permit you to activate different features, including the catch-all one, with just a few clicks. All the mailboxes that you have created will be shown alphabetically in this section and next to each one of them you’ll find a mini "Catch-all" button. Clicking it once will activate this option, clicking it once again will disable it. As you can have just one such catch-all mailbox per domain name, our system will alert you if you’ve already got a different mailbox with this option activated or if you have activated email forwarding.
Catch-all Emails in Semi-dedicated Servers
The catch-all feature can be activated effortlessly if you have a semi-dedicated server
plan with our company. All the email addresses that you have created with the domain names hosted in the account will be listed in the Email Manager section of your Hepsia hosting Control Panel and you will notice a small-size icon conveniently located directly next to each one of them. With only one click, you can activate or deactivate the catch-all option for any mailbox of your choice on the condition that there isn't another mailbox under the same domain with the option already activated and there isn't active email forwarding. Alternatively, you can right-click on a mailbox and activate the feature using the context menu that will come into sight. In case any of the preconditions for creating a catch-all mailbox is not matched, our system will notify you, but will not replace or deactivate anything automatically.
