A catch-all mailbox is one that captures all the emails sent to nonexistent email addresses. For instance, if your email address is info@domain.com, but somebody misspells 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per domain can have this feature enabled and in this way you will never miss emails because the other party has an out-of-date email address or has made a mistake. The downside of configuring a catch-all mailbox is that you may start receiving lots of spam email messages, but this issue can be resolved using an anti-spam filtering solution. It’s also essential to know that a mailbox with an activated catch-all feature cannot forward incoming email messages to a 3rd-party mailbox.

Catch-all Emails in Web Hosting

In case you have a web hosting with our company and you’d like to activate the catch-all feature for a specific mailbox that you have in your hosting account, it will 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 to the right of each email address that you have created under any domain name hosted in the account. You can choose one single address per domain name by clicking the respective button. This will enable the feature right away, so all emails sent to misspelled email addresses will be delivered there. Clicking on the button once again will disable the catch-all feature. In case you’ve got active email forwarding, our system will exhibit a warning note and you won’t be able to activate the catch-all feature until you remove the forwarding or you can simply select a different mailbox to be the catch-all one.
