A catch-all functionality that is activated for a certain mailbox will allow you to receive email messages that are sent to addresses that do not really exist. Otherwise put, if you delete an email address and somebody still sends a message to it, or to any miswritten address under the same domain name, you’ll get the email in the catch-all mailbox. Using this functionality implies that you will no longer miss an email for any reason whatsoever, which could be essential in case you are running some business, for instance. Since you may begin receiving spam emails, you can combine the catch-all option with email filters in order to receive only legitimate messages in your inbox. Just one single mailbox per domain 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
If you host a domain name on our cloud platform and you’ve got a shared web hosting account, you’ll be able to enable the catch-all feature for any mailbox that you create under the domain name. The Hepsia hosting Control Panel’s Email Manager section includes quite a lot of features, but it is exceptionally simple to work with, so creating a catch-all mailbox takes just one single click of the mouse. All the email addresses that you’ve got will be shown in this section alphabetically and you’ll only have to click the "Catch-all" button pertaining to the specific address. Our system will notify you if there is already another catch-all mailbox activated for that domain or if the one that you want to be a catch-all mailbox has email forwarding activated, so you can either turn off the latter feature or select a different mailbox. Deactivating the catch-all option is just as easy and takes one more click on the exact same button.
Catch-all Emails in Semi-dedicated Hosting
You’ll be able to configure a catch-all email address with no more than one click if you’ve got a Linux semi-dedicated package with us and your email messages are handled by our cloud platform. All the mailboxes that you set up using any domain hosted in your semi-dedicated account will be listed in the Hepsia Control Panel’s Email Manager section. Each of them will have a small "Catch-all" icon on its right-hand side, so all it will take to enable this option will be to click that icon. In the same manner you’ll be able to deactivate the feature, in case you don’t need it anymore. Our system will let you know in case you are trying to enable a second catch-all mailbox for a particular domain or if there’s enabled email forwarding, but it’ll never alter or deactivate anything automatically or without your approval.
