A catch-all mailbox is one that collects all the messages sent to nonexistent email addresses. For example, if your address is info@domain.com, but somebody misspells it and sends an email to inof@domain.com, it will still be received in the catch-all mailbox that you have set up. Just one single mailbox per domain name can have this feature activated and thus you’ll never miss messages because the other party has an obsolete email address or has made a typographical error. The drawback of creating a catch-all mailbox is that you may begin receiving plenty of spam email messages, but this issue can be solved using anti-spam protection software. It’s also crucial to remember that a mailbox with an enabled catch-all feature cannot redirect inbound messages to a third-party mailbox.

Catch-all Emails in Hosting

If you host a domain on our cloud web hosting platform and you’ve got a hosting account, you will be able to activate the catch-all functionality for any email mailbox that you set up under the domain name. The Hepsia hosting Control Panel’s Email Manager section comes with quite a few features, but it’s remarkably intuitive, so creating a catch-all mailbox requires only one single click. All the email addresses that you have will be enumerated in this section in alphabetical order and you will simply need to click the "Catch-all" button pertaining to the given email address. Our system will inform you if there is already another catch-all mailbox activated 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 deactivate the latter feature or pick a different mailbox. Deactivating the catch-all feature is just as simple and requires yet another mouse click on the very same button.
