A catch-all feature that is enabled for a specific email mailbox will permit you to receive email messages that are sent to addresses that do not actually exist. Otherwise stated, if you deactivate an email address and someone still sends a message to it, or to any mistyped email address under the very same domain, you will receive the message in the catch-all mailbox. Using this functionality implies that you won’t miss an email for any reason whatsoever, which could be essential if you run a company, for instance. Since you may start receiving unsolicited messages, you can use the catch-all feature with anti-spam filtering software in order to receive only authentic email messages in your inbox. Only one single 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 Shared Hosting

If you host a domain name on our cloud platform and you have a shared hosting account, you’ll be able to activate the catch-all feature for any mailbox that you create under the domain. The Hepsia hosting Control Panel’s Email Manager section comes with quite a lot of functions, but it’s stunningly simple to use, so creating a catch-all mailbox takes only one single click. All the email addresses that you’ve created will be displayed in this section alphabetically and you will just have to click the "Catch-all" button pertaining to the particular address. Our system will warn you if there is already another catch-all mailbox enabled for that domain or if the one that you’d like to be a catch-all mailbox has email forwarding activated, so you can either deactivate the latter feature or select a different mailbox. Disabling the catch-all feature is just as simple and requires yet another click on the same button.
