A catch-all e-mailbox is one that captures all the emails sent to inactive addresses. For instance, if your address is info@domain.com, but somebody mistypes it and sends an email to inof@domain.com, it will still be received in the catch-all mailbox that you have configured. Only one mailbox per domain can have this feature enabled and in this way you will never miss messages because the other party has an out-of-date email address or has made a spelling error. The downside of using a catch-all mailbox is that you may start receiving lots of unsolicited messages, but this issue can be fixed using anti-spam protection software. It is also vital to know that a mailbox with an enabled catch-all functionality cannot redirect incoming emails to a 3rd-party address.

Catch-all Emails in Cloud Website Hosting

If you’ve got a Linux cloud website hosting with our company and you wish to enable the catch-all option for a certain mailbox that you’ve got in your hosting account, it will take literally just one single mouse click in the Email Manager section of your Hepsia Control Panel to do that. A catch-all button is available on the right-hand side of each email address that you have set up under any domain name registered in your account. You can choose one single email address per domain by clicking the respective button. This will enable the feature straight away, so all email messages sent to mistyped addresses will be received there. Clicking on the button again will deactivate the catch-all feature. In case you’ve got enabled email forwarding, our system will display a cautionary notice and you won’t be able to enable the catch-all feature till you disable the forwarding or you can simply pick some other mailbox to be the catch-all one.
