A catch-all feature that is activated for a given e-mailbox will allow you to receive emails that are sent to email addresses that do not actually exist. To state it differently, if you remove an email address and someone still sends an email to it, or to any mistyped email address under the exact same domain, you’ll receive the email in the catch-all mailbox. Using this functionality means that you won’t miss an email for any reason, which could be vital in case you run a business, for instance. Since you may begin receiving unsolicited bulk email messages, you can combine the catch-all feature with anti-spam filters so as to get only real messages in your inbox. Just one mailbox per domain name can be a catch-all one and email forwarding cannot be set up for a catch-all mailbox.

Catch-all Emails in Website Hosting

In case you’ve got a website hosting with our company and you wish to enable the catch-all feature for a certain e-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 accomplish that. A catch-all button is available on the right side of each email address that you have set up under any domain hosted in your account. You can select one single address per domain name by clicking on the corresponding button. This will enable the feature instantly, so all email messages sent to mistyped email addresses will be re-sent there. Clicking the button once again will deactivate the catch-all feature. In case you have activated email forwarding, our system will show a cautionary notification and you will not be able to enable the catch-all feature unless you deactivate the forwarding or you can simply pick a different mailbox to be the catch-all one.
