A catch-all feature that is enabled for a particular email mailbox will permit you to receive email messages that are sent to addresses that do not actually exist. Otherwise stated, if you delete an email address and someone still sends an email message to it, or to any misspelled email address under the exact same domain, you will receive the message in the catch-all mailbox. Using this feature implies that you won’t miss an email for any reason, which could be crucial if you run a business, for instance. Since you may begin receiving unsolicited messages, you can combine the catch-all functionality with email filters so as to receive only legitimate emails in your inbox. Only 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
In case you host a domain name on our cloud platform and you’ve got a shared web hosting account, you will be able to activate the catch-all feature for any mailbox that you set up under the domain name. The Email Manager section of the Hepsia hosting Control Panel comes with quite a lot of functions, but it is stunningly intuitive, so setting up a catch-all mailbox takes only a click of the mouse. All the email addresses that you have created will be shown in this section in alphabetical order and you’ll just need to click the "Catch-all" button associated with the given email address. Our system will warn you if there is already another catch-all mailbox activated for that domain name or if the one that you would like to be a catch-all mailbox has email forwarding activated, so you can either turn off the latter feature or pick another mailbox. Deactivating the catch-all feature is just as easy and takes yet another click on the exact same button.
Catch-all Emails in Semi-dedicated Servers
A catch-all email address can be created with several clicks of the mouse in case you have a semi-dedicated server with us. The semi-dedicated account will be administered via our in-house developed Hepsia hosting Control Panel and you will be able to set up email addresses under any domain registered here. To activate the catch-all feature for a given mailbox, you will need to click on the symbol with the exact same name, which will be on the right side of each email address. Disabling this feature can be achieved in the very same manner and will not require more than one click either. If the catch-all functionality has already been activated for a specific domain name, you will get a warning note. The same goes if the mailbox that you would like to be a catch-all one has email forwarding activated, as our system will never modify or deactivate any feature automatically.
