A catch-all functionality that is activated for a certain mailbox will permit you to receive email messages that are sent to email addresses that do not really exist. To put it differently, if you delete an email address and somebody still sends an email to it, or to any mistyped email address under the same domain, you’ll get 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 run some business, for example. Since you may begin receiving unsolicited email messages, you can combine the catch-all feature with anti-spam filtering software so as to get only real messages in your inbox. Only one single 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 Web Hosting
Configuring a catch-all email mailbox will be unbelievably easy if you have a Linux web hosting with our company. You can enable the feature through our powerful, albeit simple-to-work-with Email Manager, which is an integral part of the Hepsia Control Panel, via which you will administer your account. You will find all the mailboxes that you have set up shown in alphabetical order and next to each of them there will be a tiny "Catch-all" icon, which will instantly inform you whether a particular mailbox gets all the messages pertaining to a certain domain or not. With a single click on the icon you can enable or disable this feature whenever you like. If there is active email forwarding or in case some other mailbox has already been configured as a catch-all one for a particular domain, you’ll receive a warning message from our system. The latter won’t replace/deactivate anything automatically and without your approval.
