A catch-all functionality that is enabled for a given email mailbox will permit you to receive email messages that are sent to email addresses that do not really exist. Otherwise stated, if you delete an email address and somebody still sends an email to it, or to any miswritten email address under the same domain name, you will receive the email in the catch-all mailbox. Using this functionality implies that you won’t miss an email for any reason whatsoever, which could be crucial in case you run some business, for example. Since you may begin receiving unsolicited messages, you can combine the catch-all functionality with email filters in order to get only real messages in your inbox. Only one single 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 Cloud Hosting
Configuring a catch-all mailbox will be stunningly easy in case you have a Linux cloud hosting package with our company. You can enable this option through our advanced, yet intuitive Email Manager tool, which is an integral part of the Hepsia Control Panel, via which you will manage your hosting account. You will find all the mailboxes that you have set up enumerated alphabetically and on the right-hand side of each one there will be a small-size "Catch-all" icon, which will instantly notify you whether a specific mailbox gets all the emails pertaining to a certain domain or not. With a single click on the icon you can enable or disable the feature whenever you want. If there is activated email forwarding or if some other mailbox has already been set up as a catch-all one for a certain domain name, you’ll receive a notification from our system. The latter will not replace/disable anything automatically and without your approval.
