A catch-all email mailbox is one that collects all the messages sent to nonexistent addresses. For instance, if your email address is info@domain.com, but someone mistypes it and sends an email message to inof@domain.com, it will still be received in the catch-all mailbox that you have set up. Just one mailbox per domain name can have this feature enabled and thus you will never miss emails because the other side has an obsolete address or has made a mistake. The negative aspect of configuring a catch-all mailbox is that you may start receiving plenty of junk email messages, but this problem can be solved using an anti-spam filtering solution. It is also crucial to bear in mind that a mailbox with an active catch-all feature cannot redirect inbound emails to a 3rd-party mailbox.

Catch-all Emails in Website Hosting

If you’ve got a website hosting plan with us and you would like to activate the catch-all option for a given e-mailbox that you’ve got in your web hosting account, it will take literally only a single click of the mouse in the Email Manager section of your Hepsia Control Panel to achieve this. A catch-all button is available on the right side of each and every email address that you have created under any domain name hosted in the account. You can pick one address per domain name by clicking on the corresponding button. This will enable the feature instantly, so all emails sent to misspelled email addresses will be received there. Clicking the button once more will deactivate the catch-all feature. If you have active email forwarding, our system will display a warning notice and you won’t be able to enable the catch-all feature until you delete the forwarding or you can simply choose another mailbox to be the catch-all one.
