A catch-all functionality that is activated for a certain email mailbox will permit you to receive email messages that are sent to email addresses that do not really exist. Otherwise stated, if you remove an email address and somebody still sends a message to it, or to any mistyped address under the exact same domain name, you will get the message in the catch-all mailbox. Using this functionality implies that you won’t miss an email for any reason whatsoever, which could be crucial in case you are running some business, for example. Since you may start receiving unsolicited bulk emails, you can combine the catch-all feature with email filters in order to receive only legitimate emails 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 Shared Website Hosting
In case you’ve got a shared website hosting plan with us and you want to activate the catch-all option for a given mailbox that you’ve got in your web hosting account, it’ll take literally just one click in the Email Manager section of your Hepsia hosting Control Panel to do that. A catch-all button is available on the right side of each email address that you have created under any domain registered in your account. You can select one email address per domain name by clicking the corresponding button. This will activate the feature instantly, so all email messages sent to miswritten email addresses will be re-sent there. Clicking on the button again will disable the catch-all feature. If you’ve got active email forwarding, our system will show a warning message and you won’t be able to activate the catch-all feature till you deactivate the forwarding or you can simply pick a different mailbox to be the catch-all one.
