A catch-all mailbox is one that gathers all the messages sent to inactive email addresses. For instance, if your address is info@domain.com, but someone mistypes it and sends an email 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per domain name can have this feature activated and thus you’ll never miss emails because the other party has an outdated address or has made a mistake. The drawback of having a catch-all mailbox is that you may start receiving plenty of junk messages, but this issue can be rectified by using anti-spam protection software. It’s also essential to bear in mind that a mailbox with an enabled catch-all functionality cannot forward incoming messages to a third-party email address.

Catch-all Emails in Cloud Hosting

If you’ve got a cloud plan with our company and you wish to enable the catch-all feature for a particular email mailbox that you have in your hosting account, it’ll take literally just a single click of the mouse in the Email Manager section of your Hepsia Control Panel to accomplish that. A catch-all button is available on the right side of each email address that you have created under any domain name hosted in the account. You can pick one single email address per domain name by clicking on the corresponding button. This will enable the feature straight away, so all messages sent to miswritten email addresses will be delivered there. Clicking the button for a second time will deactivate the catch-all feature. In case you have active email forwarding, our system will exhibit a cautionary notification and you won’t be able to enable the catch-all feature unless you deactivate the forwarding or you can simply select another mailbox to be the catch-all one.
