A catch-all mailbox is one that captures all the messages sent to invalid email addresses. For example, if your email address is info@domain.com, but somebody mistypes it and sends a 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per domain name can have this feature activated and in this way you’ll never miss emails because the other side has an outdated email address or has made a typographical error. The disadvantage of setting up a catch-all mailbox is that you may begin receiving plenty of unsolicited messages, but this issue can be resolved by using an anti-spam protection solution. It’s also important to bear in mind that a mailbox with an activated catch-all functionality cannot redirect incoming messages to a 3rd-party address.

Catch-all Emails in Cloud Hosting

You will be able to configure a catch-all e-mailbox without any difficulty in case you have a cloud hosting plan with us. The Email Manager in our custom-developed Hepsia hosting Control Panel is fully featured, yet exceptionally easy to use, and it will allow you to activate various features, including the catch-all one, with just a couple of clicks. All the mailboxes that you have created will be displayed in alphabetical order in this section and next to each of them you will see a small "Catch-all" symbol. Clicking on it once will enable this option, clicking on it once again will disable it. As you can have only one such catch-all mailbox per domain, our system will alert you if you’ve already got a different one with this option enabled or if you have activated email forwarding.
