A catch-all mailbox is one that gathers all the messages sent to non-existent addresses. For example, if your email address is info@domain.com, but someone mistypes it and sends an email to inof@domain.com, it will still be received in the catch-all mailbox that you have created. Only one single mailbox per domain can have this feature activated and thus you will never miss messages because the other party has an outdated email address or has made a mistake. The negative aspect of using a catch-all mailbox is that you may begin receiving a lot of junk email messages, but this problem can be solved by using an anti-spam protection solution. It is also crucial to know that a mailbox with an activated catch-all feature cannot redirect inbound emails to a third-party email address.
Catch-all Emails in Cloud Hosting
You will be able to set up a catch-all mailbox without any difficulty in case you have a cloud hosting account with our company. The Email Manager in our in-house developed Hepsia Control Panel is full-featured, yet unbelievably easy to use, and it will permit you to activate various options, including the catch-all one, with no more than a few clicks. All the mailboxes that you have created will be enumerated alphabetically in this section and on the right-hand side of each one of them you will find a tiny "Catch-all" sign. Clicking on it once will enable the feature, clicking it for a second time will deactivate it. As you can have only one such catch-all mailbox per domain name, our system will notify you if you already have a different one with this feature enabled or if you’ve got activated email forwarding.
