A catch-all mailbox is one that collects all the emails sent to non-existent email addresses. For instance, if your address is info@domain.com, but somebody miswrites it and sends an email message to inof@domain.com, it will still be received in the catch-all mailbox that you have configured. Just one mailbox per domain can have this feature activated and in this way you’ll never miss messages because the other side has an obsolete address or has made a typo. The disadvantage of using a catch-all mailbox is that you may begin receiving a lot of junk email messages, but this problem can be fixed using an anti-spam protection solution. It’s also vital to bear in mind that a mailbox with an enabled catch-all feature cannot redirect incoming emails to a third-party address.

Catch-all Emails in Cloud Hosting

In case you’ve got a cloud hosting with us and you would like to activate the catch-all option for a given mailbox that you’ve got in your account, it will take literally just a single click of the mouse in the Email Manager section of your Hepsia hosting Control Panel to do this. A catch-all button is available to the right of each and every email address that you have created under any domain name registered in the account. You can choose one single address per domain name by clicking the respective button. This will enable the feature momentarily, so all email messages sent to misspelled email addresses will be received there. Clicking on the button again will deactivate the catch-all feature. If you have activated email forwarding, our system will exhibit a warning message and you won’t be able to enable the catch-all feature until you deactivate the forwarding or you can simply select another mailbox to be the catch-all one.
