A catch-all feature that is activated for a specific email mailbox will allow you to receive emails that are sent to email addresses that do not really exist. To state it differently, if you deactivate an email address and someone still sends an email to it, or to any misspelled address under the exact same domain, you will get the email in the catch-all mailbox. Using this feature implies that you won’t miss an email for any reason whatsoever, which could be essential in case you are running some company, for instance. Since you may start receiving unsolicited bulk emails, you can use the catch-all option with email filters in order to receive only legitimate email messages in your inbox. Only one 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 Hosting

In case you host a domain name on our cloud web hosting platform and you have a hosting account, you will be able to activate the catch-all feature for any mailbox that you create under the domain. The Email Manager section of the Hepsia hosting Control Panel offers quite a few features, but it is surprisingly simple to work with, so creating a catch-all mailbox requires just one click. All the email addresses that you’ve got will be displayed in this section in alphabetical order and you will simply have to click the "Catch-all" button for the given email address. Our system will notify you if there is already another catch-all mailbox enabled for that domain or if the one that you would like to be a catch-all mailbox has email forwarding enabled, so you can either deactivate the latter feature or choose some other mailbox. Disabling the catch-all feature is just as easy and takes one more click on the very same button.
