A catch-all functionality that is enabled for a specific email mailbox will allow you to receive emails that are sent to addresses that do not actually exist. Otherwise put, if you deactivate an email address and someone still sends a message to it, or to any mistyped email address under the exact same domain, you’ll receive the email in the catch-all mailbox. Using this functionality means that you won’t miss an email for any reason whatsoever, which could be vital in case you are running a business, for example. Since you may start receiving unsolicited messages, you can combine the catch-all option with email filters so as to get only authentic messages in your inbox. Just 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
Creating a catch-all e-mailbox will be truly easy if you have a shared website hosting with our company. You can enable this option through our advanced, albeit user-friendly Email Manager tool, which is built into the Hepsia Control Panel, via which you will administer your account. You’ll see all the email addresses that you have set up displayed in alphabetical order and next to each one there will be a small "Catch-all" icon, which will instantly notify you if a particular mailbox stores all the email messages associated with a certain domain or not. With one click on the icon you can activate or deactivate this option at any moment. In case there’s activated email forwarding or if another mailbox has already been set up as a catch-all one for a particular domain name, you will get an alert from our system. The latter will not deactivate/replace anything automatically and without your permission.
