A catch-all e-mailbox is one that collects all the messages sent to nonexistent 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 created. Just one single mailbox per domain name can have this feature enabled and in this way you will never miss emails because the other party has an obsolete address or has made a typographical error. The drawback of creating a catch-all mailbox is that you may start receiving lots of unsolicited email messages, but this problem can be fixed by using anti-spam protection software. It is also important to remember that a mailbox with an activated catch-all functionality cannot redirect inbound messages to a 3rd-party address.

Catch-all Emails in Shared Website Hosting

In case you’ve got a Linux shared website hosting package with our company and you want to enable the catch-all option for a specific e-mailbox that you have in your web hosting account, it will take literally just a single mouse click in the Email Manager section of your Hepsia hosting Control Panel to accomplish this. A catch-all button is available on the right side of each and every email address that you have created under any domain name hosted in your account. You can pick one single email address per domain by clicking on the respective button. This will enable the feature immediately, so all email messages sent to misspelled addresses will be delivered there. Clicking the button for a second time will disable the catch-all feature. In case you have active email forwarding, our system will display a warning message and you won’t be able to activate the catch-all feature till you remove the forwarding or you can simply select a different mailbox to be the catch-all one.
