A catch-all email mailbox is one that collects all the messages sent to non-existent addresses. For instance, if your address is info@domain.com, but someone miswrites it and sends an email 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mailbox per domain can have this feature enabled and thus you will never miss emails because the other party has an outdated email address or has made a spelling error. The negative aspect of using a catch-all mailbox is that you may start receiving lots of spam, but this issue can be resolved by using anti-spam filtering software. It’s also crucial to remember that a mailbox with an active catch-all functionality cannot forward incoming emails to a 3rd-party mailbox.

Catch-all Emails in Shared Website Hosting

Creating a catch-all email mailbox will be rather easy in case you’ve got a Linux shared website hosting with our company. You can activate this feature through our advanced, yet intuitive Email Manager, which is an indivisible part of the Hepsia Control Panel, via which you will administer the shared web hosting account itself. You’ll see all the mailboxes that you’ve set up enumerated in alphabetical order and to the right of each of them there will be a mini "Catch-all" icon, which will instantly inform you whether a specific mailbox receives all the emails for a given domain or not. With one mouse click on the icon you can activate or deactivate this feature whenever you wish. In case there’s active email forwarding or in case a different mailbox has already been set up as a catch-all one for a specific domain, you will receive a warning text message from our system. The latter will not deactivate/replace anything automatically and without your approval.
