A catch-all functionality that is enabled for a particular e-mailbox will permit you to receive email messages that are sent to email addresses that do not really exist. Otherwise put, if you disable an email address and someone still sends an email message to it, or to any misspelled email address under the same domain name, you will get the email in the catch-all mailbox. Using this feature means that you will no longer miss an email for any reason, which could be vital in case you run a company, for example. Since you may begin receiving spam, you can use the catch-all feature with anti-spam filters in order to receive only real messages in your inbox. Just one single 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 Web Hosting

If you host a domain name on our cloud platform and you’ve got a web hosting account, you will be able to enable the catch-all functionality for any e-mailbox that you create under the domain name. The Hepsia hosting Control Panel’s Email Manager section offers quite a lot of features, but it’s incredibly easy to work with, so setting up a catch-all mailbox requires only a click. All the email addresses that you have set up will be listed in this section alphabetically and you’ll only need to click the "Catch-all" button associated with the given email address. Our system will alert you if there is already another catch-all mailbox activated for that domain or if the one that you’d like to be a catch-all mailbox has email forwarding activated, so you can either deactivate the latter feature or pick some other mailbox. Disabling the catch-all feature is just as easy and takes one more mouse click on the same button.
