A catch-all email mailbox is one that gathers all the messages sent to invalid addresses. For instance, if your 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. Just one single mailbox per domain name can have this feature enabled and thus you will never miss messages because the other party has an obsolete address or has made a spelling mistake. The drawback of having a catch-all mailbox is that you may start receiving plenty of unsolicited bulk email messages, but this issue can be fixed by using anti-spam protection software. It’s also essential to know that a mailbox with an activated catch-all functionality cannot forward inbound messages to a 3rd-party email address.

Catch-all Emails in Hosting

If you’ve got a Linux hosting plan with us and you would like to enable the catch-all option for a specific e-mailbox that you have in your hosting account, it’ll take literally only one single click of the mouse in the Email Manager section of your Hepsia Control Panel to achieve this. A catch-all button is available on the right side of each email address that you have set up under any domain name registered in the account. You can select one email address per domain name by clicking on the corresponding button. This will enable the feature immediately, so all messages sent to mistyped addresses will be received there. Clicking on the button for a second time will turn off the catch-all feature. If you’ve got enabled email forwarding, our system will display a cautionary notice and you will not be able to enable the catch-all feature till you disable the forwarding or you can simply pick another mailbox to be the catch-all one.
