A catch-all e-mailbox is one that collects all the messages sent to inactive addresses. For example, 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 created. Just one mailbox per domain name can have this feature enabled and thus you will never miss emails because the other party has an outdated email address or has made a typo. The disadvantage of configuring a catch-all mailbox is that you may begin receiving plenty of spam messages, but this issue can be fixed using an anti-spam protection solution. It’s also crucial to remember that a mailbox with an enabled catch-all feature cannot forward incoming emails to a third-party address.

Catch-all Emails in Shared Website Hosting

If you’ve got a Linux shared website hosting package with our company and you want to activate the catch-all option for a specific e-mailbox that you’ve got in the hosting account, it will take literally just a mouse click in the Email Manager section of your Hepsia hosting Control Panel to achieve this. A catch-all button is available to the right of each email address that you have created under any domain hosted in your account. You can pick one email address per domain name by clicking the corresponding button. This will enable the feature immediately, so all email messages sent to misspelled email addresses will be delivered there. Clicking the button once more will turn off the catch-all feature. In case you’ve got activated email forwarding, our system will show a warning notification and you will not be able to activate the catch-all feature unless you deactivate the forwarding or you can simply choose a different mailbox to be the catch-all one.
