What is a catch-all mailbox?

A catch-all mailbox will catch all e-mails sent to an e-mail address in the domain for which there is no mail account or alias defined.
In this way no mails will be lost, e.g. in case of typing errors in an existing e-mail address.
However, a catch-all mailbox catches everything, including spam mails sent to random e-mail addresses.
