A catch-all e-mailbox is one that gathers all the emails sent to nonexistent addresses. For instance, if your address is info@domain.com, but somebody misspells it and sends a message to inof@domain.com, it will still be received in the catch-all mailbox that you have configured. Only one single mailbox per domain name can have this feature activated and in this way you will never miss emails because the other side has an outdated address or has made a spelling error. The drawback of creating a catch-all mailbox is that you may begin receiving a lot of unsolicited bulk messages, but this issue can be solved using anti-spam protection software. It is also crucial to remember that a mailbox with an enabled catch-all functionality cannot forward incoming email messages to a third-party mailbox.
Catch-all Emails in Shared Website Hosting
In case you have a Linux shared website hosting package with us and you would like to enable the catch-all option for a certain mailbox that you have in your web hosting account, it’ll take literally only one single mouse click in the Email Manager section of your Hepsia Control Panel to accomplish this. A catch-all button is available on the right side of each and every email address that you have created under any domain registered in the account. You can pick one address per domain name by clicking on the corresponding button. This will activate the feature immediately, so all email messages sent to mistyped addresses will be delivered there. Clicking on the button once more will disable the catch-all feature. If you’ve got active email forwarding, our system will exhibit a cautionary notice and you won’t be able to enable the catch-all feature unless you remove the forwarding or you can simply pick a different mailbox to be the catch-all one.
