A catch-all e-mailbox is one that collects all the emails sent to inactive 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 created. Only one single mailbox per domain can have this feature activated and in this way you’ll never miss emails because the other side has an obsolete address or has made a mistake. The disadvantage of configuring a catch-all mailbox is that you may start receiving plenty of unsolicited emails, but this problem can be resolved by using an anti-spam protection solution. It is also vital to know that a mailbox with an active catch-all feature cannot forward incoming emails to a third-party address.

Catch-all Emails in Cloud Website Hosting

In case you host a domain name on our cloud platform and you’ve got a cloud website hosting account, you’ll be able to activate the catch-all feature for any email mailbox that you set up under the domain. The Email Manager section of the Hepsia hosting Control Panel offers quite a lot of features, but it’s surprisingly simple to use, so configuring a catch-all mailbox requires just one click. All the email addresses that you have set up will be displayed in this section in alphabetical order and you’ll simply need to click on the "Catch-all" button associated with the concrete email address. Our system will warn you if there’s already another catch-all mailbox enabled for that domain or if the one that you would like 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 feature is just as simple and takes one more click on the exact same button.
