A catch-all email mailbox is one that captures all the emails sent to nonexistent addresses. For instance, if your address is info@domain.com, but someone miswrites 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per domain can have this feature enabled and in this way you will never miss emails because the other party has an out-of-date email address or has made a spelling mistake. The drawback of setting up a catch-all mailbox is that you may start receiving a lot of unsolicited bulk emails, but this issue can be fixed by using an anti-spam filtering solution. It is also crucial to keep in mind that a mailbox with an enabled catch-all feature cannot redirect incoming emails to a 3rd-party mailbox.
Catch-all Emails in Hosting
If you host a domain on our cloud platform and you have a hosting account, you will be able to activate the catch-all functionality for any e-mailbox that you create under the domain. The Email Manager section of the Hepsia Control Panel offers quite a lot of functions, but it’s incredibly user-friendly, so setting up a catch-all mailbox takes just a single click of the mouse. All the email addresses that you’ve got will be shown in this section in alphabetical order and you’ll just have to click on the "Catch-all" button associated with the particular address. Our system will inform you if there’s already another catch-all mailbox activated for that domain name or if the one that you’d like to be a catch-all mailbox has email forwarding activated, so you can either deactivate the latter feature or choose a different mailbox. Deactivating the catch-all feature is just as easy and requires yet another click on the same button.
