A catch-all e-mailbox is one that captures all the email messages sent to non-existent addresses. For example, if your email address is info@domain.com, but someone misspells it and sends an email to inof@domain.com, it will still be received in the catch-all mailbox that you have set up. Only one single mailbox per domain can have this feature activated and in this way you will never miss messages because the other side has an outdated address or has made a spelling mistake. The downside of setting up a catch-all mailbox is that you may begin receiving plenty of spam email messages, but this issue can be solved by using an anti-spam filtering solution. It’s also essential to bear in mind that a mailbox with an activated catch-all functionality cannot redirect inbound email messages to a 3rd-party email address.

Catch-all Emails in Cloud Web Hosting

If you’ve got a Linux cloud web hosting with us and you want to activate the catch-all option for a specific e-mailbox that you’ve got in your hosting account, it will take literally only one mouse click in the Email Manager section of your Hepsia Control Panel to achieve this. A catch-all button is available to the right of each and every email address that you have set up under any domain name registered in the account. You can pick one single address per domain name by clicking the respective button. This will activate the feature instantaneously, so all messages sent to miswritten addresses will be re-sent there. Clicking the button once again will deactivate the catch-all feature. In case you have activated email forwarding, our system will exhibit a warning notification and you will not be able to enable the catch-all feature till you disable the forwarding or you can simply pick another mailbox to be the catch-all one.
