A catch-all e-mailbox is one that gathers all the messages sent to invalid addresses. For instance, if your 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 single mailbox per domain name can have this feature enabled and in this way you will never miss emails because the other side has an obsolete address or has made a spelling mistake. The disadvantage of using a catch-all mailbox is that you may begin receiving lots of unsolicited messages, but this issue can be fixed using anti-spam protection software. It’s also important to remember that a mailbox with an enabled catch-all feature cannot forward incoming email messages to a 3rd-party email address.
Catch-all Emails in Shared Hosting
If you’ve got a shared plan with our company and you wish to enable the catch-all functionality for a particular mailbox that you’ve got in your account, it will take literally only one mouse click in the Email Manager section of your Hepsia Control Panel to accomplish this. A catch-all button is available next to each email address that you have created under any domain name hosted in the account. You can pick one email address per domain name by clicking on the respective button. This will enable the feature instantaneously, so all emails sent to misspelled addresses will be re-sent there. Clicking on the button once more will turn off the catch-all feature. In case you have activated email forwarding, our system will exhibit a cautionary message and you will not be able to activate the catch-all feature until you deactivate the forwarding or you can simply select another mailbox to be the catch-all one.
