A catch-all e-mailbox is one that collects all the messages sent to non-existent email addresses. For instance, if your email address is info@domain.com, but somebody mistypes it and sends an email message to inof@domain.com, it will still be received in the catch-all mailbox that you have created. Only one single mailbox per domain can have this feature activated and thus you will never miss emails because the other party has an obsolete email address or has made a spelling mistake. The downside of configuring a catch-all mailbox is that you may begin receiving plenty of spam messages, but this problem can be solved using an anti-spam filtering solution. It’s also vital to remember that a mailbox with an enabled catch-all feature cannot redirect incoming emails to a third-party mailbox.

Catch-all Emails in Shared Web Hosting

You will be able to create a catch-all mailbox effortlessly in case you’ve got a shared web hosting plan with our company. The Email Manager in our custom-built Hepsia Control Panel is feature-loaded, yet really user-friendly, and it will allow you to activate various options, including the catch-all one, with just a few mouse clicks. All the email addresses that you have set up will be enumerated alphabetically in this section and next to each of them you’ll see a small "Catch-all" logo. Clicking it once will enable the feature, clicking on it once again will deactivate it. Since you can have just one such mailbox per domain, our system will inform you if you’ve already got a different mailbox with this option activated or if you’ve got enabled email forwarding.
