A catch-all e-mailbox is one that collects all the messages sent to inactive email 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 set up. Only one mailbox per domain name can have this feature activated and thus you’ll never miss emails because the other side has an out-of-date address or has made a typographical error. The negative aspect of creating a catch-all mailbox is that you may start receiving a lot of unsolicited emails, but this problem can be solved by using an anti-spam filtering solution. It is also crucial to keep in mind that a mailbox with an active catch-all functionality cannot forward inbound emails to a 3rd-party address.

Catch-all Emails in Shared Hosting

In case you host a domain name on our cloud platform and you have a shared hosting account, you’ll be able to activate the catch-all feature for any mailbox that you set up under the domain. The Hepsia hosting Control Panel’s Email Manager section offers quite a few features, but it’s amazingly user-friendly, so configuring a catch-all mailbox requires only one single click. All the email addresses that you have will be shown in this section in alphabetical order and you’ll just need to click the "Catch-all" button associated with the specific email address. Our system will inform you if there is already another catch-all mailbox activated for that domain or if the one that you want to be a catch-all mailbox has email forwarding enabled, so you can either turn off the latter feature or select some other mailbox. Disabling the catch-all option is just as simple and takes one more click on the exact same button.
