A catch-all functionality that is enabled for a particular mailbox will permit you to receive email messages that are sent to addresses that do not actually exist. Otherwise said, if you delete an email address and someone still sends an email to it, or to any miswritten address under the same domain, you’ll get the email in the catch-all mailbox. Using this functionality means that you will no longer miss an email for any reason, which could be vital in case you are running some company, for example. Since you may start receiving unsolicited bulk messages, you can combine the catch-all option with email filters in order to receive only authentic emails in your inbox. Only one 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 Shared Web Hosting

You’ll be able to configure a catch-all e-mailbox without difficulty in case you’ve got a shared web hosting plan with us. The Email Manager in our in-house created Hepsia hosting Control Panel is feature-rich, yet amazingly intuitive, and it will permit you to activate various options, including the catch-all one, with just a couple of mouse clicks. All the email addresses that you have created will be shown in alphabetical order in this section and on the right side of each of them you will find a mini "Catch-all" sign. Clicking it once will activate this feature, clicking it once again will disable it. As you can have only one such catch-all mailbox per domain name, our system will alert you if you’ve already got another one with this feature activated or if you have activated email forwarding.
