A catch-all mailbox is one that gathers all the messages sent to inactive addresses. For instance, if your address is info@domain.com, but somebody miswrites 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 single mailbox per domain can have this feature activated and in this way you will never miss messages because the other party has an obsolete email address or has made a mistake. The negative aspect of using a catch-all mailbox is that you may start receiving a lot of spam emails, but this issue can be fixed by using an anti-spam protection solution. It is also essential to bear in mind that a mailbox with an active catch-all functionality cannot forward incoming messages to a third-party email address.

Catch-all Emails in Shared Web Hosting

Configuring a catch-all mailbox will be remarkably easy if you’ve got a Linux shared web hosting with us. You can enable this option through our powerful, yet intuitive Email Manager tool, which is an essential part of the Hepsia hosting Control Panel, via which you will manage your hosting account. You’ll see all the email addresses that you have set up displayed in alphabetical order and on the right-hand side of each of them there will be a tiny "Catch-all" icon, which will instantly show you whether a certain mailbox stores all the messages pertaining to a certain domain name or not. With one click on the icon you can activate or deactivate this feature whenever you want. In case there’s enabled email forwarding or in case some other mailbox has already been set up as a catch-all one for a given domain, you will receive a notification from our system. The latter will not disable/replace anything automatically and without your permission.
