A catch-all e-mailbox is one that gathers all the emails sent to inactive addresses. For example, if your address is info@domain.com, but someone miswrites it and sends an email to inof@domain.com, it will still be received in the catch-all mailbox that you have configured. Only one single mailbox per domain can have this feature enabled and thus you’ll never miss emails because the other side has an outdated address or has made a mistake. The disadvantage of creating a catch-all mailbox is that you may begin receiving plenty of unsolicited bulk emails, but this problem can be fixed by using anti-spam protection software. It is also essential to know that a mailbox with an active catch-all feature cannot redirect incoming email messages to a third-party address.

Catch-all Emails in Web Hosting

You’ll be able to set up a catch-all mailbox without effort in case you’ve got a web hosting account with us. The Email Manager in our in-house created Hepsia hosting Control Panel is feature-rich, yet amazingly simple to work with, and it will allow you to enable various features, including the catch-all one, with just several mouse clicks. All the email addresses that you have will be displayed alphabetically in this section and to the right of each one of them you will notice a tiny "Catch-all" logo. Clicking on it once will activate this option, clicking it once again will deactivate it. As you can have only one such catch-all mailbox per domain, our system will alert you if you already have another mailbox with this feature activated or if you’ve got enabled email forwarding.
