A catch-all feature that is enabled for a specific email mailbox will permit you to receive email messages that are sent to addresses that do not really exist. Otherwise stated, if you disable an email address and somebody still sends an email message to it, or to any miswritten email address under the very same domain name, you’ll get the email in the catch-all mailbox. Using this feature means that you won’t miss an email for any reason, which could be vital if you are running some company, for instance. Since you may begin receiving unsolicited bulk emails, you can combine the catch-all option with anti-spam filters in order to get only authentic emails in your inbox. Just one mailbox per domain can be a catch-all one and email forwarding cannot be enabled for a catch-all mailbox.

Catch-all Emails in Cloud Web Hosting

If you have a Linux cloud web hosting package with our company and you would like to activate the catch-all functionality for a given mailbox that you’ve got in the web hosting account, it will take literally just a single mouse click in the Email Manager section of your Hepsia hosting Control Panel to do this. A catch-all button is available on the right side of each email address that you have set up under any domain name hosted in your account. You can pick one email address per domain name by clicking on the corresponding button. This will activate the feature instantaneously, so all email messages sent to miswritten addresses will be delivered there. Clicking on the button for a second time will disable the catch-all feature. In case you’ve got active email forwarding, our system will show a cautionary message and you will not be able to enable the catch-all feature until you disable the forwarding or you can simply pick a different mailbox to be the catch-all one.
