A catch-all feature that is activated for a certain mailbox will permit you to receive emails that are sent to addresses that do not really exist. Otherwise stated, if you remove an email address and somebody still sends a message to it, or to any mistyped email address under the same domain name, you will get the message in the catch-all mailbox. Using this feature implies that you will no longer miss an email for any reason, which could be essential in case you run a company, for example. Since you may begin receiving junk messages, you can use the catch-all functionality with anti-spam filters so as to receive only real email messages 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 Shared Website Hosting

In case you have a Linux shared website hosting package with us and you would like to activate the catch-all feature for a given e-mailbox that you’ve got in your hosting account, it will take literally only one single click in the Email Manager section of your Hepsia Control Panel to do that. 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 select one address per domain by clicking the corresponding button. This will activate the feature immediately, so all messages sent to misspelled addresses will be received there. Clicking 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 warning notification and you will not be able to activate the catch-all feature unless you deactivate the forwarding or you can simply pick another mailbox to be the catch-all one.
