A catch-all email mailbox is one that gathers all the emails sent to nonexistent addresses. For example, if your email address is info@domain.com, but somebody miswrites it and sends an email message 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mailbox per domain name can have this feature enabled and thus you’ll never miss messages because the other side has an outdated address or has made a spelling mistake. The drawback of using a catch-all mailbox is that you may begin receiving a lot of spam email messages, but this issue can be fixed using an anti-spam filtering solution. It is also vital to remember that a mailbox with an enabled catch-all functionality cannot redirect inbound emails to a third-party mailbox.
Catch-all Emails in Cloud Hosting
If you’ve got a cloud package with us and you wish to enable the catch-all option for a given e-mailbox that you have in your account, it’ll take literally only a mouse click in the Email Manager section of your Hepsia Control Panel to achieve that. A catch-all button is available to the right of each and every email address that you have set up under any domain hosted in your account. You can pick one email address per domain by clicking on the respective button. This will activate the feature instantaneously, so all emails sent to misspelled email addresses will be re-sent there. Clicking the button once more will disable the catch-all feature. If you have active email forwarding, our system will exhibit a warning message and you will not be able to enable the catch-all feature till you deactivate the forwarding or you can simply pick some other mailbox to be the catch-all one.
