A catch-all e-mailbox is one that collects all the messages sent to nonexistent email addresses. For instance, if your email address is info@domain.com, but someone mistypes it and sends an email to inof@domain.com, it will still be received in the catch-all mailbox that you have configured. Just one mailbox per domain name can have this feature enabled and in this way you will never miss messages because the other party has an outdated address or has made a typographical error. The downside of using a catch-all mailbox is that you may begin receiving plenty of unsolicited emails, but this issue can be fixed using anti-spam protection software. It’s also vital to keep in mind that a mailbox with an activated catch-all functionality cannot redirect inbound messages to a third-party email address.

Catch-all Emails in Web Hosting

In case you host a domain on our cloud hosting platform and you have a web hosting account, you will be able to enable the catch-all functionality for any mailbox that you create under the domain name. The Hepsia Control Panel’s Email Manager section offers quite a few functions, but it is extremely simple to work with, so configuring a catch-all mailbox takes just a click of the mouse. All the email addresses that you have set up will be shown in this section alphabetically and you will just need to click the "Catch-all" button pertaining to the specific email address. Our system will inform you if there’s already another catch-all mailbox activated for that domain name or if the one that you’d like to be a catch-all mailbox has email forwarding activated, so you can either turn off the latter feature or pick another mailbox. Disabling the catch-all option is just as easy and takes yet another mouse click on the exact same button.
