A catch-all email mailbox is one that captures all the email messages sent to non-existent addresses. For instance, if your address is info@domain.com, but somebody miswrites it and sends a message to inof@domain.com, it will still be received in the catch-all mailbox that you have created. Just one mailbox per domain can have this feature enabled and in this way you will never miss messages because the other party has an outdated address or has made a typographical error.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 drawback of configuring a catch-all mailbox is that you may start receiving lots of unsolicited messages, but this issue can be rectified using anti-spam protection software. It’s also essential to know that a mailbox with an activated catch-all feature cannot redirect incoming messages to a third-party email address.

Catch-all Emails in Web Hosting

If you host a domain on our cloud hosting platform and you’ve got a web hosting account, you will be able to enable the catch-all feature for any email mailbox that you set up under the domain. The Hepsia Control Panel’s Email Manager section comes with quite a lot of features, but it is surprisingly simple to work with, so creating a catch-all mailbox takes only one single click of the mouse. All the email addresses that you’ve got will be displayed in this section alphabetically and you will just need to click on the "Catch-all" button associated with the particular address. Our system will inform you if there is already another catch-all mailbox enabled for that domain name or if the one that you want to be a catch-all mailbox has email forwarding activated, so you can either disable the latter feature or pick another mailbox. Disabling the catch-all option is just as easy and takes yet another mouse click on the very same button.
