A catch-all functionality that is enabled for a given mailbox will allow you to receive emails that are sent to email addresses that do not actually exist. To put it differently, if you deactivate an email address and someone still sends a message to it, or to any misspelled email address under the very same domain name, you’ll get 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 if you run a business, for instance. Since you may begin receiving unsolicited bulk emails, you can combine the catch-all functionality with anti-spam filtering software so as to receive only authentic email messages in your inbox. Just one single mailbox per domain can be a catch-all one and email forwarding cannot be activated for a catch-all mailbox.

Catch-all Emails in Shared Website Hosting

If you host a domain on our cloud hosting platform and you’ve got a shared website hosting account, you will be able to enable the catch-all functionality for any mailbox that you create under the domain name. The Email Manager section of the Hepsia Control Panel comes with quite a few features, but it is incredibly intuitive, so creating a catch-all mailbox requires just one single click. All the email addresses that you’ve set up will be shown in this section alphabetically and you will just have to click on the "Catch-all" button associated with the concrete address. Our system will inform you if there’s already another catch-all mailbox enabled for that domain or if the one that you want to be a catch-all mailbox has email forwarding activated, so you can either disable the latter feature or select another mailbox. Disabling the catch-all option is just as simple and takes one more mouse click on the very same button.
