A catch-all mailbox is one that captures all the messages sent to inactive addresses. For instance, if your address is info@domain.com, but somebody miswrites 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 enabled and thus you’ll never miss messages because the other party has an obsolete address or has made a spelling error. The disadvantage of configuring a catch-all mailbox is that you may begin receiving a lot of unsolicited email messages, but this issue can be solved by using an anti-spam protection solution. It’s also crucial to remember that a mailbox with an activated catch-all functionality cannot forward inbound email messages to a 3rd-party email address.
Catch-all Emails in Shared Web Hosting
You’ll be able to configure a catch-all e-mailbox without any effort in case you have a shared web hosting account with our company. The Email Manager in our custom Hepsia Control Panel is fully featured, yet very easy to use, and it will permit you to activate different features, including the catch-all one, with just a couple of clicks. All the mailboxes that you have will be enumerated alphabetically in this section and on the right side of each of them you’ll notice a tiny "Catch-all" logo. Clicking it once will enable this feature, clicking it twice will disable it. Since you can have just one such mailbox per domain, our system will notify you if you’ve already got a different mailbox with this option activated or if you’ve got activated email forwarding.
