A catch-all e-mailbox is one that captures all the messages sent to invalid addresses. For instance, if your email address is info@domain.com, but somebody miswrites it and sends a message to inof@domain.com, it will still be received in the catch-all mailbox that you have configured. Only one mailbox per domain can have this feature enabled and thus you will never miss emails because the other side has an out-of-date email address or has made a typo. The disadvantage of setting up a catch-all mailbox is that you may start receiving plenty of unsolicited bulk emails, but this issue can be solved using anti-spam protection software. It’s also vital to know that a mailbox with an active catch-all feature cannot forward inbound messages to a 3rd-party mailbox.

Catch-all Emails in Web Hosting

If you have a web hosting with our company and you would like to enable the catch-all option for a given e-mailbox that you’ve got in your web hosting account, it’ll take literally just a single mouse click in the Email Manager section of your Hepsia hosting Control Panel to do this. A catch-all button is available on the right-hand side of each email address that you have set up under any domain name registered in the account. You can choose one address per domain name by clicking on the respective button. This will enable the feature straight away, so all messages sent to misspelled addresses will be received there. Clicking the button once more will turn off the catch-all feature. If you’ve got active email forwarding, our system will exhibit a cautionary note and you won’t be able to activate the catch-all feature until you disable the forwarding or you can simply choose another mailbox to be the catch-all one.
