A catch-all e-mailbox is one that captures all the emails sent to inactive email addresses. For instance, if your address is info@domain.com, but someone mistypes it and sends an email message to inof@domain.com, it will still be received in the catch-all mailbox that you have configured. Just one single mailbox per domain name can have this feature activated and in this way you’ll never miss emails because the other party has an out-of-date email address or has made a typo. The downside of creating a catch-all mailbox is that you may start receiving plenty of unsolicited email messages, but this issue can be solved by using anti-spam filtering software. It’s also vital to bear in mind that a mailbox with an enabled catch-all feature cannot redirect inbound email messages to a third-party mailbox.

Catch-all Emails in Shared Website Hosting

In case you have a Linux shared website hosting package with our company and you wish to enable the catch-all functionality for a particular mailbox that you’ve got in your account, it’ll take literally just one mouse click in the Email Manager section of your Hepsia Control Panel to accomplish this. A catch-all button is available to the right of each email address that you have created under any domain registered in your account. You can pick one single email address per domain name by clicking on the respective button. This will activate the feature straight away, so all messages sent to mistyped email addresses will be delivered there. Clicking the button for a second time will deactivate the catch-all feature. In case you’ve got activated email forwarding, our system will exhibit a warning notification and you won’t be able to enable the catch-all feature till you remove the forwarding or you can simply choose some other mailbox to be the catch-all one.
