A catch-all feature that is enabled for a certain email mailbox will permit you to receive email messages that are sent to email addresses that do not actually exist. To state it differently, if you disable an email address and somebody still sends an email message to it, or to any misspelled address under the exact same domain name, you’ll get the email in the catch-all mailbox. Using this functionality implies that you won’t miss an email for any reason whatsoever, which could be crucial if you are running some company, for example. Since you may begin receiving unsolicited emails, you can use the catch-all functionality with anti-spam filters so as to receive only real emails in your inbox. Just one single mailbox per domain can be a catch-all one and email forwarding cannot be activated for a catch-all mailbox.

Catch-all Emails in Web Hosting

In case you host a domain on our cloud web hosting platform and you’ve got a web hosting account, you’ll be able to activate the catch-all functionality for any email mailbox that you set up under the domain name. The Email Manager section of the Hepsia Control Panel includes quite a lot of functions, but it’s surprisingly easy to work with, so setting up a catch-all mailbox takes only one mouse click. All the email addresses that you have will be displayed in this section alphabetically and you’ll only need to click the "Catch-all" button for the particular email address. Our system will warn you if there is already another catch-all mailbox activated for that domain name or if the one that you would like to be a catch-all mailbox has email forwarding activated, so you can either disable the latter feature or choose another mailbox. Disabling the catch-all feature is just as easy and takes yet another mouse click on the same button.
