A catch-all mailbox is one that collects all the email messages sent to invalid addresses. For instance, if your email address is info@domain.com, but someone mistypes it and sends a message to inof@domain.com, it will still be received in the catch-all mailbox that you have set up. Only one mailbox per domain can have this feature enabled and thus you’ll never miss messages because the other party has an obsolete address or has made a spelling error. The downside of configuring a catch-all mailbox is that you may start receiving a lot of unsolicited bulk email messages, but this issue can be fixed by using anti-spam filtering software. It is also important to keep in mind that a mailbox with an active catch-all feature cannot redirect incoming emails to a third-party email address.
Catch-all Emails in Cloud Hosting
If you host a domain on our cloud hosting platform and you’ve got a cloud hosting account, you’ll be able to activate the catch-all feature for any email mailbox that you create under the domain. The Email Manager section of the Hepsia Control Panel offers quite a few features, but it’s remarkably easy to use, so configuring a catch-all mailbox requires just a single mouse click. All the email addresses that you’ve created will be enumerated in this section alphabetically and you’ll just need to click on the "Catch-all" button pertaining to the specific address. Our system will warn 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 activated, so you can either deactivate the latter feature or choose a different mailbox. Deactivating the catch-all option is just as easy and takes one more click on the same button.
