A catch-all feature that is activated for a certain email mailbox will permit you to receive emails that are sent to addresses that do not actually exist. Otherwise stated, if you deactivate an email address and someone still sends an email to it, or to any misspelled email address under the exact same domain name, you will receive the email in the catch-all mailbox. Using this feature implies that you won’t miss an email for any reason, which could be crucial if you run a business, for example. Since you may begin receiving junk email messages, you can use the catch-all feature with anti-spam filtering software in order to receive only authentic email messages in your inbox. Just 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 Cloud Hosting

If you host a domain on our cloud web hosting platform and you’ve got a cloud hosting account, you’ll be able to activate the catch-all functionality for any e-mailbox that you create under the domain name. The Email Manager section of the Hepsia hosting Control Panel comes with quite a few features, but it is very simple to work with, so configuring a catch-all mailbox takes only one click. All the email addresses that you have set up will be shown in this section in alphabetical order and you will only have to click on the "Catch-all" button pertaining to the concrete address. Our system will inform you if there’s already another catch-all mailbox enabled for that domain or if the one that you’d like to be a catch-all mailbox has email forwarding enabled, so you can either disable the latter feature or select some other mailbox. Deactivating the catch-all feature is just as simple and takes one more mouse click on the exact same button.
