A catch-all e-mailbox is one that captures all the email messages sent to nonexistent email addresses. For example, if your email address is info@domain.com, but someone miswrites it and sends a message to inof@domain.com, it will still be received in the catch-all mailbox that you have created. Only one mailbox per domain can have this feature enabled and in this way you will never miss messages because the other party has an obsolete email address or has made a spelling mistake. The disadvantage of using a catch-all mailbox is that you may begin receiving a lot of spam, but this problem can be fixed by using anti-spam filtering software. It’s also important to know that a mailbox with an enabled catch-all feature cannot redirect incoming emails to a third-party mailbox.
Catch-all Emails in Website Hosting
If you host a domain on our cloud platform and you have a website hosting account, you will be able to enable the catch-all functionality for any email mailbox that you set up under the domain name. The Email Manager section of the Hepsia hosting Control Panel comes with quite a few features, but it’s surprisingly user-friendly, so configuring a catch-all mailbox takes only one single click of the mouse. All the email addresses that you’ve created will be shown in this section alphabetically and you will simply need to click the "Catch-all" button for the concrete address. Our system will notify you if there is already another catch-all mailbox enabled for that domain 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 select a different mailbox. Deactivating the catch-all feature is just as easy and takes one more mouse click on the exact same button.
