A catch-all email mailbox is one that gathers all the email messages sent to nonexistent addresses. For example, if your email 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 created. Only one mailbox per domain can have this feature activated and thus you’ll never miss emails because the other party has an outdated address or has made a spelling mistake. The drawback of setting up a catch-all mailbox is that you may begin receiving a lot of unsolicited bulk emails, but this problem can be rectified using anti-spam filtering software. It’s also essential to keep in mind that a mailbox with an active catch-all functionality cannot redirect inbound messages to a 3rd-party mailbox.

Catch-all Emails in Cloud Web Hosting

In case you have a Linux cloud web hosting with our company and you wish to activate the catch-all option for a given e-mailbox that you have in the hosting account, it will take literally only a single 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 your account. You can select one address per domain name by clicking the corresponding button. This will enable the feature immediately, so all email messages sent to mistyped email addresses will be delivered there. Clicking on the button once again will disable the catch-all feature. If you have active email forwarding, our system will exhibit a warning notice and you won’t be able to enable the catch-all feature until you deactivate the forwarding or you can simply pick another mailbox to be the catch-all one.
