A catch-all e-mailbox is one that collects all the email messages sent to nonexistent email addresses. For example, if your address is info@domain.com, but someone mistypes it and sends an email to inof@domain.com, it will still be received in the catch-all mailbox that you have configured. Just one mailbox per domain name can have this feature enabled and thus you’ll never miss emails because the other party has an out-of-date email address or has made a spelling mistake. The drawback of having a catch-all mailbox is that you may begin receiving a lot of junk emails, but this problem can be solved using an anti-spam filtering solution. It is also important to remember that a mailbox with an activated catch-all functionality cannot redirect incoming messages to a third-party email address.

Catch-all Emails in Cloud Web Hosting

If you host a domain name on our cloud platform and you have a cloud web hosting account, you will be able to enable the catch-all functionality for any email mailbox that you create under the domain. The Email Manager section of the Hepsia hosting Control Panel offers quite a few functions, but it’s astonishingly easy to work with, so setting up a catch-all mailbox takes just one single mouse click. All the email addresses that you’ve set up will be displayed in this section in alphabetical order and you’ll just need to click the "Catch-all" button associated with the particular email address. Our system will alert you if there is already another catch-all mailbox enabled for that domain or if the one that you want to be a catch-all mailbox has email forwarding activated, so you can either turn off the latter feature or select some other mailbox. Deactivating the catch-all option is just as simple and takes yet another mouse click on the very same button.
