A catch-all email mailbox is one that collects all the email messages sent to nonexistent email addresses. For example, if your email address is info@domain.com, but somebody miswrites 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 mailbox per domain name can have this feature activated and in this way you’ll never miss emails because the other party has an outdated email address or has made a typographical error. The negative aspect of using a catch-all mailbox is that you may begin receiving lots of spam emails, but this problem can be fixed by using anti-spam protection software. It is also essential to keep in mind that a mailbox with an activated catch-all functionality cannot forward inbound emails to a 3rd-party mailbox.
Catch-all Emails in Cloud Hosting
If you have a Linux cloud hosting package with us and you would like to activate the catch-all feature for a particular email mailbox that you’ve got in your account, it’ll take literally just a click of the mouse in the Email Manager section of your Hepsia hosting Control Panel to achieve this. A catch-all button is available on the right side of each and every email address that you have created under any domain name hosted in your account. You can select one address per domain name by clicking on the corresponding button. This will enable the feature immediately, so all emails sent to misspelled addresses will be delivered there. Clicking the button once again will disable the catch-all feature. In case you have enabled email forwarding, our system will display a warning message and you will not be able to enable the catch-all feature until you remove the forwarding or you can simply choose some other mailbox to be the catch-all one.
