A catch-all mailbox is one that collects all the email messages sent to inactive email addresses. For example, if your email address is info@domain.com, but somebody mistypes it and sends a 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mailbox per domain can have this feature activated and thus you’ll never miss messages because the other party has an out-of-date address or has made a typographical error. The drawback of having 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 important to know that a mailbox with an active catch-all functionality cannot redirect inbound messages to a third-party address.
Catch-all Emails in Website Hosting
You will be able to set up a catch-all e-mailbox effortlessly in case you have a website hosting plan with our company. The Email Manager in our in-house created Hepsia hosting Control Panel is feature-rich, yet extremely simple to work with, and it will permit you to activate different features, including the catch-all one, with no more than a couple of mouse clicks. All the mailboxes that you’ve got will be shown in alphabetical order in this section and next to each of them you will find a mini "Catch-all" symbol. Clicking on it once will enable the feature, clicking on it once again will disable it. As you can have just one such mailbox per domain, our system will notify you if you already have another one with this feature enabled or if you have active email forwarding.
