A catch-all e-mailbox is one that collects all the messages sent to invalid addresses. For instance, if your email address is info@domain.com, but somebody miswrites it and sends an email to inof@domain.com, it will still be received in the catch-all mailbox that you have created. Only one single mailbox per domain can have this feature activated and in this way you will never miss emails because the other side has an outdated email address or has made a typo. The disadvantage of using a catch-all mailbox is that you may start receiving a lot of junk email messages, but this problem can be solved using anti-spam filtering software. It is also crucial to remember that a mailbox with an enabled catch-all feature cannot forward incoming emails to a 3rd-party address.

Catch-all Emails in Website Hosting

In case you host a domain name on our cloud hosting platform and you have a website hosting account, you’ll be able to enable the catch-all feature for any email mailbox that you set up under the domain. The Hepsia hosting Control Panel’s Email Manager section includes quite a lot of functions, but it’s surprisingly easy to use, so setting up a catch-all mailbox requires only a single click. All the email addresses that you have created will be shown in this section in alphabetical order and you will just need to click the "Catch-all" button for the concrete email address. Our system will warn you if there’s already another catch-all mailbox enabled for that domain or if the one that you want to be a catch-all mailbox has email forwarding activated, so you can either disable the latter feature or pick another mailbox. Disabling the catch-all feature is just as easy and requires one more click on the same button.
