A catch-all e-mailbox is one that captures all the email messages sent to inactive addresses. For example, if your address is info@domain.com, but someone misspells it and sends an email message to inof@domain.com, it will still be received in the catch-all mailbox that you have created. Just one mailbox per domain can have this feature enabled and thus you will never miss emails because the other party has an obsolete email address or has made a typo. The drawback of creating a catch-all mailbox is that you may start receiving plenty of junk email messages, but this issue can be solved by using an anti-spam filtering solution. It’s also vital to keep in mind that a mailbox with an activated catch-all feature cannot forward inbound email messages to a third-party email address.
Catch-all Emails in Shared Hosting
If you’ve got a shared hosting with our company and you’d like to enable the catch-all functionality for a particular email mailbox that you have in the web hosting account, it will take literally only one single mouse click in the Email Manager section of your Hepsia Control Panel to achieve that. A catch-all button is available next to each and every email address that you have created under any domain name registered in your account. You can pick one single email address per domain name by clicking on the corresponding button. This will activate the feature straight away, so all email messages sent to misspelled addresses will be re-sent there. Clicking the button for a second time will turn off the catch-all feature. In case you have active email forwarding, our system will exhibit a warning notification and you will not be able to enable the catch-all feature until you delete the forwarding or you can simply choose another mailbox to be the catch-all one.
