A catch-all email mailbox is one that collects all the messages sent to invalid email addresses. For example, if your email address is info@domain.com, but someone mistypes 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 mailbox per domain name can have this feature activated and in this way you will never miss messages because the other party has an out-of-date email address or has made a typographical error. The drawback of having a catch-all mailbox is that you may begin receiving a lot of spam messages, but this problem can be solved by using an anti-spam protection solution. It’s also crucial to remember that a mailbox with an enabled catch-all feature cannot redirect incoming email messages to a third-party mailbox.

Catch-all Emails in Cloud Web Hosting

You’ll be able to configure a catch-all email mailbox without difficulty if you’ve got a cloud web hosting account with our company. The Email Manager tool in our custom-developed Hepsia hosting Control Panel is full-featured, yet remarkably simple to use, and it will allow you to activate different features, including the catch-all one, with no more than a couple of clicks. All the mailboxes that you have set up will be enumerated alphabetically in this section and on the right-hand side of each one you’ll see a mini "Catch-all" logo. Clicking it once will enable this option, clicking on it for a second time will disable it. Since you can have only one such mailbox per domain name, our system will warn you if you’ve already got another mailbox with this option enabled or if you’ve got activated email forwarding.
