A catch-all e-mailbox is one that captures all the messages sent to inactive email addresses. For example, if your email address is info@domain.com, but somebody mistypes 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 single mailbox per domain can have this feature activated and thus you will never miss emails because the other side has an outdated address or has made a typographical error. The disadvantage of configuring a catch-all mailbox is that you may begin receiving lots of spam emails, but this problem can be fixed by using anti-spam filtering software. It is also important to know that a mailbox with an activated catch-all feature cannot redirect incoming email messages to a 3rd-party address.

Catch-all Emails in Shared Hosting

If you host a domain on our cloud platform and you have a shared hosting account, you’ll be able to enable the catch-all feature for any mailbox that you set up under the domain. The Email Manager section of the Hepsia Control Panel comes with quite a lot of functions, but it is really easy to use, so configuring a catch-all mailbox requires only a click. All the email addresses that you’ve created will be enumerated in this section alphabetically and you’ll only need to click the "Catch-all" button for the specific email address. Our system will inform you if there is 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 activated, so you can either deactivate the latter feature or pick a different mailbox. Deactivating the catch-all feature is just as simple and takes yet another mouse click on the very same button.
