A catch-all mailbox is one that gathers all the emails sent to inactive email addresses. For example, if your email address is info@domain.com, but somebody mistypes it and sends an email to inof@domain.com, it will still be received in the catch-all mailbox that you have created. 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 obsolete email address or has made a spelling mistake. The downside of setting up a catch-all mailbox is that you may begin receiving a lot of unsolicited messages, but this issue can be resolved using an anti-spam filtering solution. It’s also essential to keep in mind that a mailbox with an enabled catch-all functionality cannot forward inbound emails to a third-party email address.

Catch-all Emails in Hosting

You will be able to create a catch-all e-mailbox effortlessly in case you’ve got a hosting plan with us. The Email Manager tool in our custom-developed Hepsia Control Panel is full-featured, yet astonishingly intuitive, and it will permit you to enable different options, including the catch-all one, with only a few mouse clicks. All the email addresses that you’ve set up will be listed alphabetically in this section and on the right-hand side of each one you’ll find a mini "Catch-all" icon. Clicking it once will enable this option, clicking it again will deactivate it. Since you can have just one such catch-all mailbox per domain, our system will notify you if you’ve already got a different mailbox with this option enabled or if you’ve got enabled email forwarding.
