A catch-all email mailbox is one that captures all the messages sent to invalid addresses. For example, if your email address is info@domain.com, but someone miswrites it and sends an email to inof@domain.com, it will still be received in the catch-all mailbox that you have configured. Only one mailbox per domain name can have this feature activated and in this way you’ll never miss messages because the other side has an out-of-date address or has made a mistake. The negative aspect of creating a catch-all mailbox is that you may begin receiving a lot of spam messages, but this issue can be fixed using an anti-spam protection solution. It is also crucial to know that a mailbox with an enabled catch-all functionality cannot forward incoming messages to a third-party address.

Catch-all Emails in Website Hosting

In case you’ve got a Linux website hosting package with our company and you would like to activate the catch-all feature for a particular e-mailbox that you’ve got in the hosting account, it’ll take literally just a single click in the Email Manager section of your Hepsia hosting Control Panel to achieve that. A catch-all button is available to the right of each and every email address that you have created under any domain name hosted in your account. You can pick one email address per domain by clicking the corresponding button. This will enable the feature instantaneously, so all emails sent to misspelled addresses will be delivered there. Clicking on the button again will deactivate the catch-all feature. In case you’ve got activated email forwarding, our system will exhibit a warning notice and you will not be able to activate the catch-all feature till you delete the forwarding or you can simply pick another mailbox to be the catch-all one.
