A catch-all e-mailbox is one that gathers all the emails sent to invalid addresses. For instance, if your address is info@domain.com, but somebody misspells it and sends an email to inof@domain.com, it will still be received in the catch-all mailbox that you have set up. Just one single mailbox per domain can have this feature enabled and thus you will never miss messages because the other side has an out-of-date email address or has made a typo. The downside of configuring a catch-all mailbox is that you may start receiving plenty of spam, but this issue can be fixed by using an anti-spam filtering solution. It’s also crucial to bear in mind that a mailbox with an enabled catch-all functionality cannot redirect incoming email messages to a third-party address.
Catch-all Emails in Cloud Hosting
In case you have a Linux cloud hosting with our company and you would like to enable the catch-all feature for a given e-mailbox that you have in your account, it will take literally just one mouse click in the Email Manager section of your Hepsia Control Panel to do this. A catch-all button is available on the right-hand side of each and every email address that you have set up under any domain hosted in your account. You can select one single email address per domain by clicking on the corresponding button. This will activate the feature instantaneously, so all email messages sent to misspelled addresses will be received there. Clicking on the button once more will disable the catch-all feature. If you have active email forwarding, our system will exhibit a warning notice and you won’t be able to enable the catch-all feature unless you disable the forwarding or you can simply choose another mailbox to be the catch-all one.
