A catch-all feature that is activated for a certain email mailbox will allow you to receive emails that are sent to addresses that do not really exist. Otherwise said, if you disable an email address and somebody still sends an email message to it, or to any mistyped address under the exact same domain name, you will receive the message in the catch-all mailbox. Using this feature implies that you will no longer miss an email for any reason whatsoever, which could be crucial if you run some business, for instance. Since you may start receiving junk messages, you can combine the catch-all feature with anti-spam filtering software in order to receive only real email messages in your inbox. Only one mailbox per domain name can be a catch-all one and email forwarding cannot be set up for a catch-all mailbox.

Catch-all Emails in Shared Website Hosting

If you have a Linux shared website hosting package with our company and you would like to enable the catch-all functionality for a given mailbox that you’ve got in your hosting account, it’ll take literally only one 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 and every email address that you have created under any domain registered in your account. You can select one address per domain by clicking the respective button. This will enable the feature instantly, so all emails sent to mistyped addresses will be delivered there. Clicking on the button once more will disable the catch-all feature. If you have activated email forwarding, our system will display a cautionary message and you will not be able to enable the catch-all feature unless you deactivate the forwarding or you can simply pick some other mailbox to be the catch-all one.
