A catch-all email mailbox is one that collects all the messages sent to invalid email addresses. For instance, if your email address is info@domain.com, but somebody misspells it and sends an email 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 thus you’ll never miss messages because the other side has an obsolete address or has made a spelling error. The drawback of creating a catch-all mailbox is that you may begin receiving lots of unsolicited bulk messages, but this problem can be solved by using an anti-spam filtering solution. It is also crucial to bear in mind that a mailbox with an active catch-all feature cannot redirect inbound emails to a 3rd-party address.

Catch-all Emails in Shared Web Hosting

Creating a catch-all email mailbox will be incredibly easy in case you have a Linux shared web hosting package with us. You can enable the feature through our powerful, yet simple-to-use Email Manager, which is part of the Hepsia Control Panel, via which you will manage the account itself. You’ll see all the email addresses that you have set up shown in alphabetical order and next to each one there will be a mini "Catch-all" icon, which will quickly inform you if a particular mailbox stores all the emails pertaining to a given domain or not. With one single mouse click on the icon you can enable or disable the feature whenever you like. In case there’s activated email forwarding or in case some other mailbox has already been set up as a catch-all one for a specific domain, you’ll receive an alert from our system. The latter will not deactivate/replace anything automatically and without your permission.
