A catch-all email mailbox is one that collects all the messages sent to non-existent email addresses. For example, if your address is info@domain.com, but somebody misspells it and sends an email message to inof@domain.com, it will still be received in the catch-all mailbox that you have configured. Only one single mailbox per domain can have this feature enabled and thus you will never miss emails because the other side has an outdated email address or has made a spelling mistake. The downside of creating a catch-all mailbox is that you may start receiving lots of unsolicited emails, but this problem can be resolved using an anti-spam filtering solution. It’s also crucial to keep in mind that a mailbox with an activated catch-all feature cannot redirect inbound email messages to a 3rd-party mailbox.
Catch-all Emails in Shared Web Hosting
In case you host a domain name on our cloud hosting platform and you’ve got a shared web hosting account, you’ll be able to activate the catch-all functionality for any email mailbox that you create under the domain. The Email Manager section of the Hepsia Control Panel includes quite a lot of features, but it is extremely simple to use, so creating a catch-all mailbox takes only a mouse click. All the email addresses that you’ve created will be listed in this section alphabetically and you’ll only have to click the "Catch-all" button for the respective email address. Our system will warn you if there is already another catch-all mailbox enabled for that domain name or if the one that you would like to be a catch-all mailbox has email forwarding activated, so you can either disable the latter feature or pick some other mailbox. Deactivating the catch-all feature is just as easy and requires yet another mouse click on the very same button.
