A catch-all feature that is enabled for a specific mailbox will allow you to receive emails that are sent to addresses that do not really exist. Otherwise put, if you deactivate an email address and somebody still sends an email to it, or to any miswritten address under the very same domain name, you’ll get the email in the catch-all mailbox. Using this functionality implies that you will no longer miss an email for any reason whatsoever, which could be essential in case you run some company, for example. Since you may begin receiving unsolicited bulk messages, you can use the catch-all functionality with anti-spam filtering software in order to get only legitimate email messages in your inbox. Only 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 Web Hosting
In case you host a domain name on our cloud hosting platform and you’ve got a cloud web hosting account, you’ll be able to activate the catch-all feature for any email mailbox that you set up under the domain name. The Email Manager section of the Hepsia Control Panel offers quite a lot of functions, but it’s astonishingly easy to work with, so configuring a catch-all mailbox takes just one click of the mouse. All the email addresses that you’ve got will be shown in this section in alphabetical order and you will only need to click the "Catch-all" button pertaining to the specific address. Our system will alert you if there’s already another catch-all mailbox enabled for that domain name or if the one that you’d like to be a catch-all mailbox has email forwarding activated, so you can either disable the latter feature or choose some other mailbox. Deactivating the catch-all feature is just as easy and takes yet another mouse click on the same button.
