A catch-all feature that is activated for a certain e-mailbox will allow you to receive email messages that are sent to addresses that do not really exist. Otherwise put, if you deactivate an email address and somebody still sends an email to it, or to any miswritten address under the exact same domain, 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 whatsoever, which could be crucial in case you are running some business, for instance. Since you may start receiving unsolicited email messages, you can combine the catch-all option with anti-spam filtering software in order to get only real email messages in your inbox. Only one mailbox per domain name can be a catch-all one and email forwarding cannot be enabled for a catch-all mailbox.
Catch-all Emails in Cloud Hosting
If you’ve got a Linux cloud hosting with us and you wish to enable the catch-all option for a particular email mailbox that you have in your web hosting account, it will take literally just a single 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 and every email address that you have created under any domain name hosted in your account. You can select one single email address per domain name by clicking on the respective button. This will activate the feature momentarily, so all email messages sent to miswritten addresses will be re-sent there. Clicking the button for a second time will disable the catch-all feature. In case you’ve got enabled email forwarding, our system will show a warning message and you will not be able to activate the catch-all feature until you disable the forwarding or you can simply pick another mailbox to be the catch-all one.
