A catch-all e-mailbox is one that gathers all the messages sent to inactive addresses. For example, if your 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 set up. Just one single mailbox per domain name can have this feature enabled and in this way you’ll never miss messages because the other party has an obsolete address or has made a typographical error. The drawback of configuring a catch-all mailbox is that you may start receiving lots of junk emails, but this issue can be rectified by using anti-spam filtering software. It’s also crucial to keep in mind that a mailbox with an enabled catch-all feature cannot redirect inbound emails to a 3rd-party mailbox.

Catch-all Emails in Web Hosting

You will be able to configure a catch-all e-mailbox effortlessly in case you’ve got a web hosting plan with us. The Email Manager in our custom-built Hepsia hosting Control Panel is feature-rich, yet surprisingly easy to use, and it will allow you to activate various options, including the catch-all one, with only a couple of mouse clicks. All the email addresses that you’ve set up will be shown alphabetically in this section and next to each of them you’ll see a small "Catch-all" button. Clicking it once will activate this option, clicking it for a second time will deactivate it. Since you can have just one such catch-all mailbox per domain, our system will notify you if you already have another mailbox with this feature enabled or if you have activated email forwarding.
