A catch-all mailbox is one that collects all the emails sent to nonexistent email addresses. For instance, if your email 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 mailbox per domain can have this feature activated and thus you will never miss messages because the other side has an outdated email address or has made a spelling mistake. The downside of creating a catch-all mailbox is that you may begin receiving plenty of unsolicited messages, but this issue can be solved using an anti-spam protection solution. It’s also essential to know that a mailbox with an activated catch-all functionality cannot forward inbound emails to a third-party email address.

Catch-all Emails in Cloud Hosting

Configuring a catch-all e-mailbox will be astonishingly easy in case you have a Linux cloud hosting with our company. You can enable this feature through our powerful, albeit easy-to-work-with Email Manager, which is an integral part of the Hepsia Control Panel, via which you will administer your shared hosting account. You’ll see all the mailboxes that you have created displayed alphabetically and next to each one of them there will be a small-size "Catch-all" icon, which will quickly tell you whether a specific mailbox gets all the email messages pertaining to a certain domain or not. With one single mouse click on the icon you can activate or deactivate the feature at any time. If there is activated email forwarding or if another mailbox has already been configured as a catch-all one for a specific domain, you’ll receive a warning text message from our system. The latter won’t deactivate/replace anything automatically and without your consent.
