A catch-all feature that is activated for a specific mailbox will permit you to receive emails that are sent to addresses that do not really exist. Otherwise said, if you delete an email address and someone still sends an email message to it, or to any mistyped address under the very same domain, 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, which could be vital in case you run a business, for instance. Since you may begin receiving unsolicited bulk email messages, you can use the catch-all functionality with anti-spam filters in order to get only legitimate messages in your inbox. Just one mailbox per domain can be a catch-all one and email forwarding cannot be set up for a catch-all mailbox.
Catch-all Emails in Hosting
In case you have a hosting with us and you would like to activate the catch-all option for a given mailbox that you’ve got in your web hosting account, it’ll take literally just one click of the mouse in the Email Manager section of your Hepsia hosting Control Panel to achieve this. A catch-all button is available to the right of each email address that you have created under any domain registered in the account. You can select one single email address per domain by clicking the corresponding button. This will activate the feature straight away, so all email messages sent to mistyped email addresses will be re-sent there. Clicking the button for a second time will deactivate the catch-all feature. In case you’ve got activated email forwarding, our system will show a warning notification and you will not be able to activate the catch-all feature unless you deactivate the forwarding or you can simply pick another mailbox to be the catch-all one.
