A catch-all functionality that is activated for a given email mailbox will allow you to receive emails that are sent to addresses that do not actually exist. Otherwise said, if you deactivate an email address and someone still sends a message to it, or to any misspelled email address under the exact same domain, you will receive the message 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 are running some business, for instance. Since you may start receiving junk messages, you can use the catch-all feature with anti-spam filters in order to get only legitimate messages in your inbox. Only 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
If you host a domain name on our cloud platform and you have a shared hosting account, you will be able to activate the catch-all feature for any mailbox that you create under the domain name. The Email Manager section of the Hepsia hosting Control Panel includes quite a lot of functions, but it is remarkably easy to work with, so creating a catch-all mailbox takes only one single click. All the email addresses that you’ve set up will be enumerated in this section in alphabetical order and you’ll only need to click on the "Catch-all" button associated with the specific email address. Our system will warn you if there’s already another catch-all mailbox enabled for that domain name or if the one that you would like to be a catch-all mailbox has email forwarding enabled, so you can either disable the latter feature or pick a different mailbox. Disabling the catch-all feature is just as easy and takes yet another click on the very same button.
