A catch-all feature that is activated for a certain e-mailbox will permit you to receive emails that are sent to addresses that do not really exist. Otherwise put, if you remove an email address and someone still sends an email to it, or to any mistyped email address under the same domain, you’ll receive the email in the catch-all mailbox. Using this feature means that you will no longer miss an email for any reason whatsoever, which could be vital if you are running a company, for instance. Since you may begin receiving junk emails, you can use the catch-all functionality with anti-spam filtering software so as to get only real email messages in your inbox. Only one mailbox per domain name can be a catch-all one and email forwarding cannot be enabled for a catch-all mailbox.
Catch-all Emails in Shared Website Hosting
In case you have a Linux shared website hosting with our company and you wish to activate the catch-all option for a given email mailbox that you’ve got in the account, it’ll take literally just a single click of the mouse in the Email Manager section of your Hepsia hosting Control Panel to achieve that. A catch-all button is available next to each email address that you have set up under any domain name hosted in the account. You can select one single email address per domain by clicking the corresponding button. This will enable the feature straight away, so all messages sent to mistyped addresses will be re-sent there. Clicking on the button once more will turn off the catch-all feature. If you have enabled email forwarding, our system will exhibit a cautionary message and you will not be able to enable the catch-all feature unless you disable the forwarding or you can simply select some other mailbox to be the catch-all one.
