A catch-all feature that is activated for a specific e-mailbox will permit you to receive email messages that are sent to addresses that do not really exist. To put it differently, if you deactivate an email address and somebody still sends a message to it, or to any misspelled address under the exact same domain name, you’ll get the email in the catch-all mailbox. Using this feature implies that you won’t miss an email for any reason, which could be essential in case you run some company, for instance. Since you may begin receiving unsolicited bulk emails, you can combine the catch-all feature with email filters so as to get only legitimate emails in your inbox. Only one mailbox per domain name can be a catch-all one and email forwarding cannot be activated for a catch-all mailbox.

Catch-all Emails in Hosting

In case you’ve got a Linux hosting package with us and you’d like to activate the catch-all functionality for a particular email mailbox that you have in your web hosting account, it will take literally just a single click of the mouse in the Email Manager section of your Hepsia hosting Control Panel to achieve this. A catch-all button is available on the right-hand side of each email address that you have set up under any domain name registered in your account. You can pick one address per domain by clicking the respective button. This will activate the feature right away, so all emails sent to miswritten addresses will be delivered there. Clicking the button for a second time will deactivate the catch-all feature. If you’ve got active email forwarding, our system will show a cautionary notice and you will not be able to activate the catch-all feature till you deactivate the forwarding or you can simply choose a different mailbox to be the catch-all one.
