A catch-all mailbox is one that gathers all the email messages sent to non-existent email addresses. For instance, if your email address is info@domain.com, but someone miswrites it and sends an email message to inof@domain.com, it will still be received in the catch-all mailbox that you have configured. Only one mailbox per domain name can have this feature enabled and thus you’ll never miss messages because the other side has an outdated address or has made a mistake. The negative aspect of creating a catch-all mailbox is that you may start receiving plenty of spam messages, but this issue can be fixed by using an anti-spam filtering solution. It is also crucial to know that a mailbox with an enabled catch-all feature cannot forward inbound emails to a 3rd-party mailbox.
Catch-all Emails in Cloud Hosting
Creating a catch-all email mailbox will be surprisingly easy in case you’ve got a cloud plan with our company. You can enable this option through our powerful, yet intuitive Email Manager, which is an essential part of the Hepsia hosting Control Panel, via which you will manage your shared web hosting account. You will see all the mailboxes that you’ve created listed alphabetically and on the right side of each one there will be a mini "Catch-all" icon, which will instantaneously show you whether a particular mailbox gets all the messages associated with a certain domain or not. With one click on the icon you can activate or deactivate this option whenever you want. In case there’s active email forwarding or if another mailbox has already been configured as a catch-all one for a certain domain name, you’ll receive a warning notification from our system. The latter won’t disable/replace anything automatically and without your approval.
