A catch-all feature that is enabled for a particular mailbox will allow you to receive email messages that are sent to addresses that do not really exist. In other words, if you delete an email address and somebody still sends an email to it, or to any miswritten email address under the exact same domain name, you’ll receive the email in the catch-all mailbox. Using this functionality implies that you will no longer miss an email for any reason whatsoever, which could be essential if you run some business, for instance. Since you may begin receiving unsolicited emails, you can combine the catch-all feature with anti-spam filtering software so as to get only real email messages in your inbox. Only one mailbox per domain can be a catch-all one and email forwarding cannot be activated for a catch-all mailbox.
Catch-all Emails in Shared Hosting
If you’ve got a shared hosting plan with us and you’d like to activate the catch-all feature for a specific mailbox that you have in the account, it will take literally just one single mouse click in the Email Manager section of your Hepsia hosting Control Panel to achieve that. A catch-all button is available to the right of each email address that you have set up under any domain registered in your account. You can select one email address per domain by clicking on the corresponding button. This will activate the feature straight away, so all emails sent to misspelled email addresses will be delivered there. Clicking the button again will deactivate the catch-all feature. If you’ve got enabled email forwarding, our system will exhibit a cautionary note and you won’t be able to activate the catch-all feature unless you disable the forwarding or you can simply pick some other mailbox to be the catch-all one.
