A catch-all feature that is enabled for a specific email mailbox will permit you to receive emails that are sent to addresses that do not actually exist. Otherwise put, if you delete an email address and someone still sends an email to it, or to any misspelled email address under the same domain name, you will receive the message in the catch-all mailbox. Using this feature means that you won’t miss an email for any reason, which could be vital if you are running a business, for example. Since you may start receiving spam messages, you can use the catch-all option with anti-spam filters so as to get only authentic messages in your inbox. Just 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 Website Hosting

Setting up a catch-all e-mailbox will be astonishingly easy if you have a Linux cloud website hosting package with us. You can activate this option through our powerful, albeit intuitive Email Manager tool, which is integrated into the Hepsia hosting Control Panel, via which you’ll manage your hosting account. You will find all the email addresses that you have set up enumerated alphabetically and on the right-hand side of each of them there will be a tiny "Catch-all" icon, which will immediately tell you whether a certain mailbox stores all the email messages for a given domain or not. With one single mouse click on the icon you can enable or disable this feature at any time. If there’s active email forwarding or in case some other mailbox has already been configured as a catch-all one for a specific domain, you will receive a warning notification from our system. The latter will not replace/deactivate anything automatically and without your consent.
