A catch-all e-mailbox is one that collects all the emails sent to non-existent email addresses. For example, if your email address is info@domain.com, but somebody mistypes it and sends an email message to inof@domain.com, it will still be received in the catch-all mailbox that you have set up. Just one single mailbox per domain can have this feature activated and thus you’ll never miss messages because the other party has an out-of-date address or has made a spelling error. The drawback of using a catch-all mailbox is that you may start receiving plenty of unsolicited email messages, but this issue can be solved using anti-spam protection software. It’s also important to remember that a mailbox with an activated catch-all functionality cannot redirect incoming messages to a third-party email address.
Catch-all Emails in Cloud Web Hosting
Creating a catch-all e-mailbox will be pretty easy if you have a cloud web hosting with our company. You can activate the feature through our advanced, albeit simple-to-use Email Manager, which is included in the Hepsia Control Panel, via which you’ll manage the hosting account itself. You will see all the mailboxes that you’ve created listed alphabetically and on the right-hand side of each one of them there will be a tiny "Catch-all" icon, which will quickly reveal to you whether a specific mailbox receives all the emails for a certain domain name or not. With a single mouse click on the icon you can activate or deactivate this option whenever you wish. In case there’s active email forwarding or in case a different mailbox has already been configured as a catch-all one for a specific domain name, you will receive a notification from our system. The latter won’t disable/replace anything automatically and without your consent.
