A catch-all email mailbox is one that gathers all the emails sent to nonexistent email addresses. For instance, if your email address is info@domain.com, but somebody mistypes it and sends a message to inof@domain.com, it will still be received in the catch-all mailbox that you have configured. Only one mailbox per domain can have this feature enabled and in this way you’ll never miss messages because the other side has an outdated address or has made a spelling error. The downside of configuring a catch-all mailbox is that you may start receiving plenty of unsolicited messages, but this problem can be fixed by using an anti-spam filtering solution. It’s also crucial to keep in mind that a mailbox with an enabled catch-all functionality cannot forward inbound email messages to a third-party email address.
Catch-all Emails in Shared Hosting
In case you’ve got a shared hosting with our company and you wish to activate the catch-all option for a specific email mailbox that you’ve got in your account, it’ll take literally only a mouse click in the Email Manager section of your Hepsia hosting Control Panel to accomplish this. A catch-all button is available to the right of each and every email address that you have created under any domain name hosted in the account. You can select one single address per domain name by clicking on the respective button. This will activate the feature instantly, so all email messages sent to miswritten addresses will be re-sent there. Clicking the button once again will deactivate the catch-all feature. In case you have activated email forwarding, our system will exhibit a warning notification and you won’t be able to enable the catch-all feature unless you remove the forwarding or you can simply pick another mailbox to be the catch-all one.
