A catch-all feature that is enabled for a given e-mailbox will permit you to receive emails that are sent to email addresses that do not actually exist. Otherwise stated, if you remove an email address and someone still sends an email to it, or to any mistyped email address under the exact same domain name, you’ll get 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 essential in case you are running a company, for example. Since you may begin receiving spam, you can combine the catch-all feature with anti-spam filtering software in order to receive only authentic 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 Website Hosting
You’ll be able to configure a catch-all e-mailbox without any effort if you’ve got a website hosting plan with our company. The Email Manager in our in-house developed Hepsia hosting Control Panel is feature-rich, yet really simple to work with, and it will enable you to enable various features, including the catch-all one, with just several clicks of the mouse. All the mailboxes that you’ve created will be shown in alphabetical order in this section and on the right-hand side of each one you’ll find a tiny "Catch-all" button. Clicking on it once will activate the feature, clicking it twice will disable it. Since you can have only one such catch-all mailbox per domain, our system will notify you if you already have another one with this option enabled or if you’ve got active email forwarding.
