A catch-all mailbox is one that captures all the emails sent to nonexistent addresses. For instance, if your email address is info@domain.com, but someone miswrites 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mailbox per domain name can have this feature enabled and thus you will never miss emails because the other side has an outdated address or has made a typographical error. The downside of creating a catch-all mailbox is that you may start receiving lots of junk messages, but this issue can be resolved by using an anti-spam filtering solution. It is also essential to remember that a mailbox with an activated catch-all feature cannot redirect inbound messages to a 3rd-party email address.
Catch-all Emails in Cloud Website Hosting
You will be able to configure a catch-all email mailbox effortlessly if you’ve got a cloud website hosting plan with our company. The Email Manager tool in our in-house created Hepsia hosting Control Panel is feature-loaded, yet remarkably easy to use, and it will enable you to activate various options, including the catch-all one, with no more than several mouse clicks. All the email addresses that you’ve got will be displayed in alphabetical order in this section and to the right of each one you will see a tiny "Catch-all" icon. Clicking on it once will enable the feature, clicking on it twice will deactivate it. As you can have only one such catch-all mailbox per domain, our system will alert you if you already have another one with this feature enabled or if you’ve got active email forwarding.
