A catch-all e-mailbox is one that captures all the messages sent to invalid email addresses. For instance, if your address is info@domain.com, but somebody miswrites it and sends an email to inof@domain.com, it will still be received in the catch-all mailbox that you have created. Only one single mailbox per domain can have this feature enabled and in this way you’ll never miss emails because the other side has an out-of-date email address or has made a typo. The downside of configuring a catch-all mailbox is that you may start receiving a lot of junk messages, but this problem can be rectified by using anti-spam filtering software. It’s also vital to bear in mind that a mailbox with an activated catch-all functionality cannot redirect incoming messages to a 3rd-party address.

Catch-all Emails in Cloud Web Hosting

In case you host a domain name on our cloud hosting platform and you have a cloud web hosting account, you will be able to activate the catch-all feature for any e-mailbox that you create under the domain. The Hepsia hosting Control Panel’s Email Manager section offers quite a few features, but it’s extremely user-friendly, so configuring a catch-all mailbox requires just one click of the mouse. All the email addresses that you’ve got will be shown in this section in alphabetical order and you will only need to click on the "Catch-all" button associated with the specific address. Our system will alert you if there’s already another catch-all mailbox activated for that domain name or if the one that you want to be a catch-all mailbox has email forwarding enabled, so you can either disable the latter feature or select a different mailbox. Deactivating the catch-all option is just as simple and takes yet another click on the exact same button.
