A catch-all email mailbox is one that gathers all the emails sent to non-existent addresses. For example, if your address is info@domain.com, but someone misspells it and sends an email message 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per domain name can have this feature enabled and in this way you will never miss emails because the other party has an outdated email address or has made a mistake. The disadvantage of creating a catch-all mailbox is that you may begin receiving a lot of unsolicited messages, but this issue can be solved by using an anti-spam filtering solution. It is also essential to remember that a mailbox with an active catch-all feature cannot forward incoming email messages to a 3rd-party address.

Catch-all Emails in Cloud Website Hosting

In case you host a domain name on our cloud web hosting platform and you’ve got a cloud website hosting account, you will be able to activate the catch-all feature for any email mailbox that you create under the domain name. The Email Manager section of the Hepsia hosting Control Panel comes with quite a few functions, but it’s remarkably simple to work with, so creating a catch-all mailbox takes only one single mouse click. All the email addresses that you have set up will be shown in this section alphabetically and you’ll just need to click on the "Catch-all" button pertaining to the concrete email address. Our system will notify you if there’s already another catch-all mailbox activated for that domain or if the one that you want to be a catch-all mailbox has email forwarding activated, so you can either disable the latter feature or pick another mailbox. Deactivating the catch-all feature is just as simple and takes one more mouse click on the very same button.
