A catch-all feature that is enabled for a particular mailbox will allow you to receive email messages that are sent to email addresses that do not really exist. Otherwise put, if you remove an email address and somebody still sends an email to it, or to any miswritten email address under the same domain name, you will get the email in the catch-all mailbox. Using this functionality implies that you will no longer miss an email for any reason, which could be essential in case you run some company, for instance. Since you may begin receiving unsolicited email messages, you can combine the catch-all option with email filters so as to get only real messages 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 Cloud Hosting

If you host a domain on our cloud hosting platform and you’ve got a cloud hosting account, you’ll be able to enable the catch-all feature for any email mailbox that you create under the domain. The Hepsia hosting Control Panel’s Email Manager section includes quite a lot of functions, but it is astonishingly easy to work with, so setting up a catch-all mailbox requires only a mouse click. All the email addresses that you have will be shown in this section in alphabetical order and you’ll just have to click on the "Catch-all" button pertaining to the specific email address. Our system will alert you if there’s already another catch-all mailbox enabled 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 turn off the latter feature or select another mailbox. Disabling the catch-all option is just as easy and requires yet another mouse click on the exact same button.
