A catch-all email mailbox is one that collects all the messages sent to non-existent addresses. For example, if your 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 enabled and in this way you’ll never miss messages because the other side has an obsolete email address or has made a spelling error. The negative aspect of using a catch-all mailbox is that you may start receiving a lot of unsolicited messages, but this problem can be fixed by using an anti-spam filtering solution. It is also vital to keep in mind that a mailbox with an activated catch-all functionality cannot redirect incoming emails to a 3rd-party mailbox.

Catch-all Emails in Cloud Website Hosting

If you’ve got a Linux cloud website hosting with our company and you’d like to enable the catch-all functionality for a specific mailbox that you’ve got in the account, it will take literally just a single mouse click in the Email Manager section of your Hepsia Control Panel to accomplish this. A catch-all button is available on the right side of each email address that you have set up under any domain registered in your account. You can choose one single email address per domain by clicking on the respective button. This will activate the feature instantly, so all emails sent to misspelled addresses will be received there. Clicking on the button again will deactivate the catch-all feature. If you have enabled email forwarding, our system will show a cautionary notification and you will not be able to enable the catch-all feature until you disable the forwarding or you can simply choose a different mailbox to be the catch-all one.
