A catch-all e-mailbox is one that gathers all the emails sent to inactive email addresses. For instance, if your email address is info@domain.com, but someone mistypes 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. Just one mailbox per domain can have this feature enabled and thus you will never miss emails because the other party has an obsolete email address or has made a mistake. The disadvantage of having a catch-all mailbox is that you may start receiving plenty of junk messages, but this issue can be rectified by using anti-spam filtering software. It’s also vital to remember that a mailbox with an activated catch-all functionality cannot forward inbound emails to a 3rd-party address.

Catch-all Emails in Shared Hosting

You’ll be able to configure a catch-all e-mailbox without any effort in case you have a shared hosting account with our company. The Email Manager tool in our in-house built Hepsia Control Panel is feature-rich, yet astonishingly easy to work with, and it will permit you to enable various features, including the catch-all one, with no more than a few clicks. All the email addresses that you’ve created will be shown in alphabetical order in this section and to the right of each one you will notice a mini "Catch-all" icon. Clicking on it once will enable the feature, clicking on it twice will disable it. As you can have only one such mailbox per domain, our system will notify you if you already have a different mailbox with this feature enabled or if you have activated email forwarding.
