A catch-all feature that is activated for a certain e-mailbox will allow you to receive emails that are sent to addresses that do not actually exist. Otherwise stated, if you deactivate an email address and somebody still sends an email message to it, or to any miswritten email address under the exact same domain name, you’ll get the email in the catch-all mailbox. Using this functionality implies that you will no longer miss an email for any reason, which could be essential in case you are running some company, for example. Since you may begin receiving junk email messages, you can combine the catch-all option with anti-spam filtering software in order to get only legitimate emails in your inbox. Just one single mailbox per domain can be a catch-all one and email forwarding cannot be enabled for a catch-all mailbox.

Catch-all Emails in Cloud Web Hosting

If you have a Linux cloud web hosting package with us and you would like to activate the catch-all functionality for a given mailbox that you’ve got in the web hosting account, it will take literally only one mouse click in the Email Manager section of your Hepsia Control Panel to accomplish this. A catch-all button is available to the right of each email address that you have set up under any domain name registered in your account. You can choose one single address per domain name by clicking on the corresponding button. This will enable the feature right away, so all messages sent to miswritten email addresses will be received there. Clicking on the button again will deactivate the catch-all feature. If you have enabled email forwarding, our system will show a cautionary notification and you won’t be able to enable the catch-all feature until you remove the forwarding or you can simply select a different mailbox to be the catch-all one.
