A catch-all functionality that is activated for a particular email mailbox will allow you to receive email messages that are sent to addresses that do not really exist. In other words, if you disable an email address and somebody still sends an email to it, or to any mistyped address under the very same domain name, you’ll receive 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 essential if you are running some company, for example. Since you may begin receiving junk messages, you can use the catch-all option with anti-spam 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
In case you host a domain name on our cloud hosting platform and you’ve got a shared web hosting account, you will be able to enable the catch-all feature for any mailbox that you create under the domain name. The Email Manager section of the Hepsia hosting Control Panel includes quite a few functions, but it’s stunningly simple to work with, so creating a catch-all mailbox requires just one single click of the mouse. All the email addresses that you have will be shown in this section alphabetically and you’ll simply need to click on the "Catch-all" button associated with the given email address. Our system will notify you if there’s already another catch-all mailbox enabled for that domain or if the one that you want to be a catch-all mailbox has email forwarding enabled, so you can either deactivate the latter feature or select a different mailbox. Disabling the catch-all feature is just as simple and requires one more mouse click on the very same button.
Catch-all Emails in Semi-dedicated Hosting
A catch-all email address can be set up with a couple of mouse clicks in case you have a Linux semi-dedicated hosting with us. The semi-dedicated hosting account will be administered through our custom-created Hepsia Control Panel and you’ll be able to set up email addresses with any domain name registered there. To activate the catch-all functionality for a specific mailbox, you will have to click the sign with the exact same name, which will be on the right-hand side of each email address. Disabling this feature can be achieved in the very same manner and will not take more than one click either. In case the catch-all feature has already been enabled for a specific domain, you’ll get a warning text message. The same is valid if the mailbox that you wish to be a catch-all one has email forwarding enabled, as our system will never edit or deactivate any feature automatically.
