A catch-all feature that is enabled for a particular mailbox will allow you to receive email messages that are sent to addresses that do not actually exist. Otherwise said, if you remove an email address and someone still sends a message to it, or to any mistyped address under the same domain, you will receive the email in the catch-all mailbox. Using this feature implies that you won’t miss an email for any reason, which could be essential in case you are running a business, for instance. Since you may begin receiving unsolicited emails, you can combine the catch-all feature with anti-spam filtering software so as to get only legitimate messages in your inbox. Just 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 Cloud Hosting
In case you’ve got a cloud hosting with our company and you’d like to activate the catch-all functionality for a particular e-mailbox that you’ve got in the hosting account, it’ll take literally just one click of the mouse in the Email Manager section of your Hepsia hosting Control Panel to accomplish this. A catch-all button is available next to each and every email address that you have created under any domain registered in your account. You can pick one single email address per domain name by clicking the corresponding button. This will activate the feature straight away, so all emails sent to misspelled addresses will be received there. Clicking the button for a second time will deactivate the catch-all feature. In case you’ve got active email forwarding, our system will exhibit a warning notification and you won’t be able to activate the catch-all feature till you delete the forwarding or you can simply choose a different mailbox to be the catch-all one.
