A catch-all mailbox is one that gathers all the messages sent to nonexistent addresses. For instance, if your email address is info@domain.com, but somebody misspells it and sends a message to inof@domain.com, it will still be received in the catch-all mailbox that you have created. Only one single mailbox per domain name can have this feature activated and thus you will never miss emails because the other party has an outdated email address or has made a mistake. The drawback of configuring a catch-all mailbox is that you may start receiving lots of spam emails, but this issue can be resolved using anti-spam protection software. It is also vital to keep in mind that a mailbox with an activated catch-all feature cannot redirect inbound messages to a 3rd-party address.

Catch-all Emails in Website Hosting

Creating a catch-all email mailbox will be amazingly easy if you have a Linux website hosting package with us. You can activate the feature through our powerful, albeit easy-to-work-with Email Manager, which is an indivisible part of the Hepsia hosting Control Panel, via which you’ll manage your shared hosting account. You will find all the email addresses that you’ve set up displayed alphabetically and on the right side of each one there will be a mini "Catch-all" icon, which will instantaneously inform you if a certain mailbox stores all the emails for a certain domain name or not. With a single mouse click on the icon you can activate or deactivate the feature at any moment. If there’s activated email forwarding or in case a different mailbox has already been configured as a catch-all one for a given domain name, you will get a warning notification from our system. The latter will not disable/replace anything automatically and without your permission.
