A catch-all feature that is enabled for a particular email mailbox will allow you to receive emails that are sent to addresses that do not actually exist. Otherwise stated, if you disable an email address and somebody still sends a message to it, or to any mistyped email address under the very same domain, you will get the message in the catch-all mailbox. Using this functionality implies that you won’t miss an email for any reason, which could be vital in case you run some business, for example. Since you may start receiving spam, you can use the catch-all feature with anti-spam filters in order to receive only real emails in your inbox. Just one mailbox per domain can be a catch-all one and email forwarding cannot be enabled for a catch-all mailbox.
Catch-all Emails in Cloud Web Hosting
You’ll be able to configure a catch-all email mailbox without any difficulty if you’ve got a cloud web hosting plan with our company. The Email Manager tool in our in-house developed Hepsia hosting Control Panel is feature-rich, yet remarkably simple to use, and it will permit you to activate various features, including the catch-all one, with just several clicks. All the email addresses that you have set up will be shown in alphabetical order in this section and on the right-hand side of each one you will find a small-size "Catch-all" icon. Clicking on it once will enable this feature, clicking it once again will deactivate it. Since you can have only one such mailbox per domain, our system will alert you if you already have a different one with this option activated or if you have enabled email forwarding.
