A catch-all e-mailbox is one that collects all the messages sent to nonexistent addresses. For example, if your email address is info@domain.com, but somebody misspells it and sends an email message to inof@domain.com, it will still be received in the catch-all mailbox that you have configured. Only one single mailbox per domain name can have this feature activated and in this way you will never miss emails because the other party has an obsolete email address or has made a spelling mistake. The disadvantage of creating a catch-all mailbox is that you may begin receiving lots of junk emails, but this issue can be fixed by using anti-spam protection software. It’s also crucial to remember that a mailbox with an activated catch-all functionality cannot forward incoming emails to a third-party mailbox.
Catch-all Emails in Cloud Hosting
If you host a domain name on our cloud hosting platform and you’ve got a cloud hosting account, you’ll be able to activate the catch-all functionality for any e-mailbox that you set up under the domain name. The Email Manager section of the Hepsia hosting Control Panel comes with quite a lot of features, but it’s incredibly simple to use, so setting up a catch-all mailbox requires just one single mouse click. All the email addresses that you have created will be shown in this section in alphabetical order and you will simply have to click the "Catch-all" button pertaining to the particular email address. Our system will warn you if there is already another catch-all mailbox activated for that domain or if the one that you would like to be a catch-all mailbox has email forwarding enabled, so you can either deactivate the latter feature or select a different mailbox. Deactivating the catch-all option is just as simple and takes one more mouse click on the exact same button.
