A catch-all feature that is enabled for a given mailbox will permit you to receive emails that are sent to email addresses that do not actually exist. In other words, if you deactivate an email address and somebody still sends an email to it, or to any mistyped email address under the very same domain, you’ll get the email in the catch-all mailbox. Using this functionality means that you won’t miss an email for any reason whatsoever, which could be essential in case you are running some business, for example. Since you may begin receiving unsolicited messages, you can combine the catch-all option with email filters so as to get only authentic email messages in your inbox. Just one mailbox per domain name can be a catch-all one and email forwarding cannot be enabled for a catch-all mailbox.
Catch-all Emails in Shared Hosting
In case you host a domain name on our cloud platform and you have a shared hosting account, you’ll be able to activate the catch-all functionality for any e-mailbox that you set up under the domain. The Hepsia Control Panel’s Email Manager section comes with quite a lot of functions, but it’s amazingly intuitive, so configuring a catch-all mailbox requires just a click. All the email addresses that you’ve created will be listed in this section in alphabetical order and you’ll only have to click on the "Catch-all" button pertaining to the concrete address. Our system will warn you if there is already another catch-all mailbox enabled for that domain name or if the one that you want to be a catch-all mailbox has email forwarding activated, so you can either deactivate the latter feature or select a different mailbox. Deactivating the catch-all feature is just as simple and requires yet another click on the same button.
