A catch-all email mailbox is one that captures all the email messages sent to inactive addresses. For instance, if your 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 set up. Only one single mailbox per domain name can have this feature enabled and thus you’ll never miss emails because the other party has an outdated address or has made a typographical error. The disadvantage of using a catch-all mailbox is that you may begin receiving a lot of unsolicited email messages, but this issue can be fixed using anti-spam protection software. It is also vital to keep in mind that a mailbox with an active catch-all functionality cannot redirect inbound messages to a 3rd-party address.

Catch-all Emails in Shared Hosting

Configuring a catch-all e-mailbox will be pretty easy in case you’ve got a Linux shared hosting with our company. You can activate this feature through our powerful, albeit user-friendly Email Manager, which is included in the Hepsia hosting Control Panel, via which you will manage your account. You will see all the mailboxes that you have created enumerated in alphabetical order and on the right side of each one there will be a small-size "Catch-all" icon, which will instantaneously tell you if a specific mailbox gets all the messages for a given domain name or not. With a single click on the icon you can activate or deactivate this feature at any time. In case there’s active email forwarding or if another mailbox has already been configured as a catch-all one for a particular domain, you’ll receive a warning from our system. The latter won’t replace/deactivate anything automatically and without your permission.
