A catch-all feature that is activated for a given e-mailbox will permit you to receive emails that are sent to addresses that do not actually exist. Otherwise said, if you delete an email address and somebody still sends an email message to it, or to any mistyped email address under the exact same domain, you will get the message in the catch-all mailbox. Using this feature means that you will no longer miss an email for any reason, which could be vital if you run a company, for instance. Since you may begin receiving spam messages, you can use the catch-all functionality with anti-spam filters so as to get only legitimate email messages in your inbox. Only one single mailbox per domain can be a catch-all one and email forwarding cannot be set up for a catch-all mailbox.

Catch-all Emails in Shared Hosting

In case you have a Linux shared hosting with our company and you’d like to enable the catch-all functionality for a particular e-mailbox that you have in your web hosting account, it will take literally just one single click in the Email Manager section of your Hepsia hosting Control Panel to do this. A catch-all button is available to the right of each and every email address that you have set up under any domain name hosted in your account. You can pick one email address per domain name by clicking on the respective button. This will enable the feature right away, so all emails sent to misspelled email addresses will be received there. Clicking the button for a second time will disable the catch-all feature. If you have enabled email forwarding, our system will display a cautionary note and you will not be able to enable the catch-all feature until you delete the forwarding or you can simply choose some other mailbox to be the catch-all one.
