A catch-all email mailbox is one that captures all the messages sent to inactive email addresses. For instance, if your email address is info@domain.com, but someone misspells it and sends an email to inof@domain.com, it will still be received in the catch-all mailbox that you have set up. Only one mailbox per domain name can have this feature activated and in this way you’ll never miss messages because the other side has an out-of-date email address or has made a spelling error. The negative aspect of having a catch-all mailbox is that you may start receiving lots of spam email messages, but this issue can be fixed using an anti-spam protection solution. It’s also vital to keep in mind that a mailbox with an active catch-all feature cannot redirect inbound messages to a 3rd-party address.

Catch-all Emails in Shared Hosting

Setting up a catch-all mailbox will be pretty easy in case you’ve got a Linux shared hosting package with our company. You can enable this option through our advanced, albeit easy-to-use Email Manager tool, which is an integral part of the Hepsia hosting Control Panel, via which you’ll administer your account. You will see all the mailboxes that you’ve created shown in alphabetical order and next to each one there will be a small "Catch-all" icon, which will instantly show you whether a particular mailbox gets all the emails for a certain domain name or not. With a single click on the icon you can activate or deactivate this option at any time. If there is active email forwarding or in case a different mailbox has already been set up as a catch-all one for a certain domain, you will receive a warning message from our system. The latter won’t replace/disable anything automatically and without your permission.
