A catch-all feature that is enabled for a certain email mailbox will allow you to receive emails that are sent to addresses that do not actually exist. Otherwise said, if you disable an email address and somebody still sends a message to it, or to any miswritten address under the exact 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 crucial if you run a business, for instance. Since you may start receiving junk emails, you can use the catch-all functionality with anti-spam filters so as to get only legitimate email messages in your inbox. Just one mailbox per domain can be a catch-all one and email forwarding cannot be activated for a catch-all mailbox.

Catch-all Emails in Hosting

In case you host a domain on our cloud web hosting platform and you’ve got a hosting account, you’ll be able to enable the catch-all feature for any email mailbox that you create under the domain. The Email Manager section of the Hepsia hosting Control Panel includes quite a lot of features, but it’s unbelievably easy to work with, so setting up a catch-all mailbox takes only one single click. All the email addresses that you have set up will be shown in this section in alphabetical order and you’ll only need to click the "Catch-all" button associated with the specific address. Our system will warn you if there is already another catch-all mailbox activated for that domain name or if the one that you would like to be a catch-all mailbox has email forwarding activated, so you can either deactivate the latter feature or choose some other mailbox. Disabling the catch-all feature is just as simple and takes one more mouse click on the exact same button.
