A catch-all functionality that is enabled for a specific e-mailbox will allow you to receive email messages that are sent to email addresses that do not actually exist. Otherwise said, if you delete an email address and somebody still sends a message to it, or to any miswritten email address under the exact same domain, you’ll receive the message in the catch-all mailbox. Using this feature means that you will no longer miss an email for any reason whatsoever, which could be essential in case you run a company, for instance. Since you may begin receiving spam messages, you can use the catch-all option with email filters so as to receive only legitimate emails 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 Cloud Web Hosting
If you’ve got a cloud web hosting with our company and you would like to enable the catch-all functionality for a specific email mailbox that you have in your web hosting account, it’ll take literally only one single click in the Email Manager section of your Hepsia Control Panel to achieve that. A catch-all button is available to the right of each email address that you have created under any domain name registered in your account. You can pick one email address per domain name by clicking on the corresponding button. This will activate the feature immediately, so all messages sent to mistyped addresses will be delivered there. Clicking the button once more will disable the catch-all feature. In case you have activated email forwarding, our system will display a cautionary notice and you won’t be able to enable the catch-all feature till you disable the forwarding or you can simply select a different mailbox to be the catch-all one.
