A catch-all functionality that is enabled for a certain email mailbox will permit you to receive emails that are sent to email addresses that do not actually exist. Otherwise put, if you deactivate an email address and someone still sends a message to it, or to any misspelled email address under the very same domain name, you’ll receive the message in the catch-all mailbox. Using this feature implies that you won’t miss an email for any reason, which could be vital in case you are running a company, for example. Since you may begin receiving spam messages, you can use the catch-all feature with email filters so as to receive only legitimate emails 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 Cloud Web Hosting
In case you host a domain name on our cloud hosting platform and you have a cloud web hosting account, you’ll be able to activate the catch-all functionality for any e-mailbox that you set up under the domain name. The Email Manager section of the Hepsia hosting Control Panel comes with quite a few features, but it is stunningly user-friendly, so setting up a catch-all mailbox requires only a single click of the mouse. All the email addresses that you’ve got will be shown in this section in alphabetical order and you will only have to click the "Catch-all" button associated with the respective 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 enabled, so you can either disable the latter feature or pick some other mailbox. Deactivating the catch-all feature is just as simple and requires yet another click on the exact same button.
