A catch-all feature that is enabled for a particular mailbox will allow you to receive emails that are sent to email addresses that do not actually exist. Otherwise put, if you remove an email address and someone still sends an email message to it, or to any misspelled address under the same domain name, you’ll receive the email in the catch-all mailbox. Using this functionality means that you will no longer miss an email for any reason whatsoever, which could be vital in case you run a company, for example. Since you may start receiving unsolicited emails, you can combine the catch-all option with email filters in order to receive only authentic email messages in your inbox. Only one mailbox per domain can be a catch-all one and email forwarding cannot be activated for a catch-all mailbox.
Catch-all Emails in Shared Website Hosting
In case you’ve got a shared website hosting plan with us and you want to enable the catch-all option for a certain e-mailbox that you have in the account, it will take literally only a single mouse click in the Email Manager section of your Hepsia Control Panel to accomplish this. A catch-all button is available on the right side of each and every email address that you have created under any domain name hosted in the account. You can pick one single address per domain name by clicking on the corresponding button. This will activate the feature right away, so all emails sent to misspelled addresses will be re-sent there. Clicking the button once again will disable the catch-all feature. In case you have activated email forwarding, our system will show a warning note and you won’t be able to enable the catch-all feature until you deactivate the forwarding or you can simply pick another mailbox to be the catch-all one.
