A catch-all mailbox is one that gathers all the email messages sent to invalid email addresses. For example, if your address is info@domain.com, but somebody miswrites it and sends a message to inof@domain.com, it will still be received in the catch-all mailbox that you have created. Just one mailbox per domain name can have this feature enabled and thus you will never miss messages because the other party has an out-of-date address or has made a spelling error. The negative aspect of using a catch-all mailbox is that you may begin receiving plenty of junk messages, but this issue can be rectified using an anti-spam filtering solution. It’s also essential to know that a mailbox with an enabled catch-all functionality cannot forward inbound emails to a third-party mailbox.
Catch-all Emails in Cloud Website Hosting
Setting up a catch-all mailbox will be pretty easy in case you’ve got a Linux cloud website hosting package with us. You can activate this option through our powerful, yet simple-to-work-with Email Manager tool, which is an integral part of the Hepsia Control Panel, via which you will administer your account. You’ll find all the email addresses that you have created listed in alphabetical order and on the right side of each one there will be a tiny "Catch-all" icon, which will quickly show you whether a certain mailbox stores all the email messages pertaining to a given domain name or not. With one single mouse click on the icon you can activate or deactivate this option whenever you like. In case there is activated email forwarding or if some other mailbox has already been set up as a catch-all one for a certain domain, you’ll get a warning text message from our system. The latter will not replace/deactivate anything automatically or without your approval.
