A catch-all mailbox is one that captures all the emails sent to non-existent email addresses. For instance, if your email address is info@domain.com, but someone misspells it and sends a message to inof@domain.com, it will still be received in the catch-all mailbox that you have configured. Only one single mailbox per domain name can have this feature activated and in this way you’ll never miss messages because the other party has an out-of-date email address or has made a mistake. The disadvantage of configuring a catch-all mailbox is that you may begin receiving lots of spam messages, but this problem can be fixed by using an anti-spam filtering solution. It is also vital to remember that a mailbox with an enabled catch-all feature cannot forward inbound messages to a 3rd-party email address.

Catch-all Emails in Cloud Web Hosting

Creating a catch-all mailbox will be rather easy in case you have a Linux cloud web hosting package with us. You can enable the feature through our advanced, yet simple-to-work-with Email Manager tool, which is an essential part of the Hepsia hosting Control Panel, via which you’ll manage your account. You’ll find all the mailboxes that you’ve created listed alphabetically and next to each one there will be a tiny "Catch-all" icon, which will immediately notify you if a certain mailbox receives all the email messages pertaining to a certain domain name or not. With one single mouse click on the icon you can enable or disable this feature at any moment. If there’s active email forwarding or if a different mailbox has already been configured as a catch-all one for a particular domain, you will get a warning notification from our system. The latter will not replace/deactivate anything automatically and without your consent.
