A catch-all mailbox is one that gathers all the emails sent to non-existent email addresses. For example, if your address is info@domain.com, but someone mistypes it and sends an email message to inof@domain.com, it will still be received in the catch-all mailbox that you have configured. Just one single mailbox per domain name can have this feature activated and in this way you’ll never miss emails because the other side has an out-of-date email address or has made a typo. The negative aspect of having a catch-all mailbox is that you may begin receiving plenty of spam messages, but this issue can be fixed by using an anti-spam protection solution. It’s also vital to know that a mailbox with an enabled catch-all functionality cannot forward incoming email messages to a third-party address.

Catch-all Emails in Shared Web Hosting

In case you’ve got a shared web hosting with us and you want to enable the catch-all option for a certain email mailbox that you’ve got in the account, it’ll take literally just a single click in the Email Manager section of your Hepsia Control Panel to accomplish this. A catch-all button is available on the right-hand side of each and every email address that you have created under any domain registered in your account. You can choose one single address per domain by clicking the respective button. This will enable the feature immediately, so all email messages sent to miswritten addresses will be received there. Clicking the button for a second time will turn off the catch-all feature. In case you have active email forwarding, our system will exhibit a cautionary notice and you won’t be able to enable the catch-all feature till you deactivate the forwarding or you can simply pick some other mailbox to be the catch-all one.
