A catch-all functionality that is enabled for a specific e-mailbox will permit you to receive email messages that are sent to addresses that do not really exist. To state it differently, if you delete an email address and someone still sends an email to it, or to any misspelled address under the very same domain, you’ll 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 in case you run some business, for example. Since you may start receiving unsolicited email messages, you can use the catch-all functionality with anti-spam filters so as to get only legitimate 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 Cloud Hosting

In case you have a Linux cloud hosting with us and you would like to enable the catch-all option for a certain e-mailbox that you have in the web hosting account, it’ll take literally only one mouse click in the Email Manager section of your Hepsia Control Panel to accomplish that. A catch-all button is available next to each email address that you have set up under any domain name hosted in your account. You can choose one single address per domain by clicking the corresponding button. This will enable the feature immediately, so all messages sent to miswritten addresses will be received there. Clicking the button for a second time will deactivate the catch-all feature. If you have active email forwarding, our system will show a warning message and you won’t be able to activate the catch-all feature until you disable the forwarding or you can simply select a different mailbox to be the catch-all one.
