A catch-all feature that is activated for a given mailbox will allow you to receive email messages that are sent to addresses that do not really exist. Otherwise put, if you deactivate an email address and somebody still sends an email message to it, or to any miswritten address under the exact same domain, you will 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 in case you run a company, for instance. Since you may start receiving junk emails, you can combine the catch-all functionality with anti-spam filters in order to get only legitimate 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 Web Hosting

If you’ve got a shared web hosting with us and you’d like to activate the catch-all option for a particular email mailbox that you have in your account, it’ll take literally only a click of the mouse in the Email Manager section of your Hepsia Control Panel to accomplish that. A catch-all button is available on the right-hand side of each email address that you have set up under any domain registered in your account. You can choose one address per domain name by clicking on the respective button. This will enable the feature instantly, so all messages sent to mistyped email addresses will be received there. Clicking the button once again will turn off the catch-all feature. If you have enabled email forwarding, our system will display a cautionary message and you won’t be able to activate the catch-all feature till you delete the forwarding or you can simply choose another mailbox to be the catch-all one.
