A catch-all feature that is enabled for a particular email mailbox will permit you to receive emails that are sent to email addresses that do not really exist. Otherwise put, if you delete an email address and somebody still sends an email to it, or to any mistyped address under the very same domain, you will receive the message in the catch-all mailbox. Using this functionality implies that you will no longer miss an email for any reason whatsoever, which could be vital in case you run a company, for example. Since you may start receiving junk messages, you can use the catch-all option with email filters so as to get only real emails in your inbox. Only one mailbox per domain name can be a catch-all one and email forwarding cannot be activated for a catch-all mailbox.

Catch-all Emails in Web Hosting

If you’ve got a web hosting with us and you would like to activate the catch-all option for a specific email mailbox that you’ve got in your hosting account, it will take literally just a mouse click in the Email Manager section of your Hepsia hosting Control Panel to accomplish that. A catch-all button is available on the right-hand side of each email address that you have created under any domain hosted in the account. You can pick one single email address per domain by clicking the respective button. This will activate the feature right away, so all emails sent to misspelled email addresses will be re-sent there. Clicking on the button once more will turn off the catch-all feature. In case you’ve got active email forwarding, our system will show a cautionary note and you won’t be able to activate the catch-all feature unless you deactivate the forwarding or you can simply pick another mailbox to be the catch-all one.
