A catch-all email mailbox is one that captures all the email messages sent to non-existent email addresses. For instance, if your address is info@domain.com, but somebody misspells it and sends an email to inof@domain.com, it will still be received in the catch-all mailbox that you have set up. Only one mailbox per domain name can have this feature activated and in this way you will never miss emails because the other side has an out-of-date email address or has made a typographical error. The negative aspect of setting up a catch-all mailbox is that you may begin receiving a lot of unsolicited emails, but this problem can be solved using anti-spam filtering software. It is also essential to bear in mind that a mailbox with an active catch-all functionality cannot forward inbound email messages to a 3rd-party mailbox.
Catch-all Emails in Cloud Hosting
If you host a domain on our cloud platform and you have a cloud hosting account, you’ll be able to activate the catch-all functionality for any e-mailbox that you create under the domain. The Hepsia hosting Control Panel’s Email Manager section includes quite a few functions, but it’s remarkably intuitive, so creating a catch-all mailbox takes only a single mouse click. All the email addresses that you’ve created will be shown in this section in alphabetical order and you will just need to click on the "Catch-all" button pertaining to the respective address. Our system will alert you if there is already another catch-all mailbox activated for that domain or if the one that you’d like to be a catch-all mailbox has email forwarding enabled, so you can either turn off the latter feature or select a different mailbox. Deactivating the catch-all option is just as simple and requires yet another mouse click on the very same button.
