A catch-all mailbox is one that gathers all the emails sent to inactive addresses. For example, if your email address is info@domain.com, but someone misspells it and sends a message to inof@domain.com, it will still be received in the catch-all mailbox that you have configured. Just one single mailbox per domain name can have this feature enabled and in this way you will never miss emails because the other party has an out-of-date address or has made a mistake. The disadvantage of using a catch-all mailbox is that you may begin receiving plenty of spam emails, but this problem can be resolved by using anti-spam filtering software. It’s also vital to keep in mind that a mailbox with an active catch-all feature cannot forward inbound email messages to a 3rd-party email address.

Catch-all Emails in Cloud Web Hosting

Setting up a catch-all e-mailbox will be quite easy in case you’ve got a cloud web hosting plan with our company. You can enable this feature through our advanced, albeit easy-to-work-with Email Manager tool, which is an essential part of the Hepsia Control Panel, via which you’ll manage your hosting account. You will find all the email addresses that you have created shown alphabetically and next to each one there will be a mini "Catch-all" icon, which will immediately notify you whether a specific mailbox gets all the email messages for a given domain or not. With a single click on the icon you can activate or deactivate this option whenever you wish. In case there’s enabled email forwarding or in case another mailbox has already been configured as a catch-all one for a certain domain name, you’ll receive an alert from our system. The latter will not disable/replace anything automatically or without your approval.
