A catch-all feature that is enabled for a given email mailbox will permit you to receive emails that are sent to email addresses that do not actually exist. To put it differently, if you deactivate an email address and somebody still sends an email to it, or to any mistyped address under the exact same domain name, you’ll get the email in the catch-all mailbox. Using this functionality means that you won’t miss an email for any reason, which could be essential in case you are running a business, for example. Since you may begin receiving unsolicited bulk email messages, you can combine the catch-all feature with anti-spam filtering software in order to receive only authentic email 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 Web Hosting
You will be able to create a catch-all mailbox without difficulty in case you have a shared web hosting account with our company. The Email Manager in our custom-created Hepsia Control Panel is full-featured, yet amazingly easy to use, and it will enable you to enable different features, including the catch-all one, with just a couple of mouse clicks. All the email addresses that you have created will be displayed alphabetically in this section and on the right-hand side of each one you will find a mini "Catch-all" button. Clicking on it once will enable this option, clicking it again will deactivate it. As you can have just one such mailbox per domain name, our system will warn you if you’ve already got a different one with this option enabled or if you’ve got enabled email forwarding.
