A catch-all feature that is enabled for a given mailbox will allow you to receive email messages that are sent to email addresses that do not really exist. In other words, if you disable an email address and somebody still sends a message to it, or to any mistyped address under the same domain name, you will receive the message in the catch-all mailbox. Using this feature implies that you will no longer miss an email for any reason, which could be crucial if you run some business, for example. Since you may start receiving unsolicited email messages, you can use the catch-all functionality with anti-spam filtering software in order to receive only legitimate 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 Cloud Web Hosting

In case you host a domain name on our cloud hosting platform and you’ve got a cloud web hosting account, you’ll be able to activate the catch-all feature for any mailbox that you create under the domain name. The Email Manager section of the Hepsia Control Panel offers quite a few functions, but it is remarkably intuitive, so creating a catch-all mailbox requires only a click of the mouse. All the email addresses that you have created will be shown in this section alphabetically and you’ll simply need to click the "Catch-all" button associated with the given address. Our system will warn you if there’s already another catch-all mailbox enabled for that domain or if the one that you want to be a catch-all mailbox has email forwarding enabled, so you can either disable the latter feature or choose a different mailbox. Disabling the catch-all feature is just as easy and requires yet another mouse click on the exact same button.
