A catch-all mailbox is one that captures all the messages sent to non-existent email addresses. For example, if your email address is info@domain.com, but someone misspells it and sends a 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 activated and thus you will never miss messages because the other party has an obsolete 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 emails, but this issue can be rectified by using an anti-spam protection solution. It’s also vital to bear in mind that a mailbox with an enabled catch-all functionality cannot redirect inbound emails to a third-party address.
Catch-all Emails in Cloud Hosting
If you have a cloud hosting plan with our company and you’d like to enable the catch-all feature for a certain e-mailbox that you have in your web hosting account, it will take literally just one single click in the Email Manager section of your Hepsia Control Panel to achieve that. A catch-all button is available on the right side of each and every email address that you have created under any domain hosted in the account. You can pick one single address per domain by clicking the corresponding button. This will enable the feature right away, so all email messages sent to miswritten email addresses will be delivered there. Clicking the button again will turn off the catch-all feature. If you’ve got enabled email forwarding, our system will display a cautionary notice and you will not be able to enable the catch-all feature until you remove the forwarding or you can simply choose some other mailbox to be the catch-all one.
