A catch-all e-mailbox is one that gathers all the emails sent to non-existent addresses. For instance, if your email address is info@domain.com, but someone miswrites it and sends a message to inof@domain.com, it will still be received in the catch-all mailbox that you have created. Just one single mailbox per domain can have this feature activated and in this way you’ll never miss emails because the other party has an out-of-date email address or has made a mistake. The negative aspect of creating a catch-all mailbox is that you may begin receiving plenty of junk emails, but this issue can be rectified using anti-spam protection software. It’s also essential to remember that a mailbox with an active catch-all feature cannot forward inbound messages to a third-party address.
Catch-all Emails in Hosting
You will be able to create a catch-all email mailbox easily in case you’ve got a hosting plan with us. The Email Manager tool in our custom-created Hepsia Control Panel is feature-rich, yet very simple to work with, and it will enable you to activate different features, including the catch-all one, with only several clicks. All the mailboxes that you have set up will be enumerated alphabetically in this section and on the right side of each one you will find a mini "Catch-all" icon. Clicking it once will activate the feature, clicking it twice will disable it. As you can have only one such mailbox per domain, our system will warn you if you already have a different one with this option enabled or if you have enabled email forwarding.
