A catch-all email mailbox is one that captures all the messages sent to invalid addresses. For instance, 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 enabled and thus you will never miss messages because the other party has an obsolete address or has made a typographical error. The negative aspect of configuring a catch-all mailbox is that you may begin receiving lots of unsolicited bulk email messages, but this issue can be rectified by using an anti-spam filtering solution. It’s also essential to bear in mind that a mailbox with an activated catch-all feature cannot forward inbound emails to a 3rd-party mailbox.

Catch-all Emails in Web Hosting

Creating a catch-all email mailbox will be extremely easy in case you’ve got a web hosting with us. You can enable this option through our powerful, albeit simple-to-work-with Email Manager, which is included in the Hepsia Control Panel, via which you will administer your shared hosting account. You’ll see all the mailboxes that you’ve created enumerated in alphabetical order and on the right side of each one of them there will be a tiny "Catch-all" icon, which will immediately reveal to you if a particular mailbox stores all the messages associated with a given domain name or not. With one click on the icon you can activate or deactivate the feature whenever you like. If there’s active email forwarding or in case a different mailbox has already been set up as a catch-all one for a certain domain, you’ll get a warning note from our system. The latter will not deactivate/replace anything automatically and without your consent.
