A catch-all e-mailbox is one that captures all the email messages sent to inactive addresses. For example, 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 created. Just one mailbox per domain can have this feature enabled and thus you will never miss messages because the other side has an out-of-date email address or has made a typographical error. The drawback of having a catch-all mailbox is that you may start receiving a lot of unsolicited messages, but this issue can be fixed using anti-spam protection software. It’s also crucial to know that a mailbox with an active catch-all functionality cannot forward inbound messages to a third-party email address.
Catch-all Emails in Cloud Website Hosting
In case you host a domain name on our cloud platform and you have a cloud website hosting account, you’ll be able to enable the catch-all feature for any mailbox that you create under the domain name. The Email Manager section of the Hepsia hosting Control Panel offers quite a few functions, but it is extremely easy to work with, so setting up a catch-all mailbox takes only one single click. All the email addresses that you’ve got will be shown in this section alphabetically and you’ll just need to click the "Catch-all" button pertaining to the concrete address. Our system will notify you if there’s 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 enabled, so you can either deactivate the latter feature or select some other mailbox. Deactivating the catch-all feature is just as easy and requires yet another click on the same button.
