A catch-all feature that is activated for a certain email mailbox will allow you to receive email messages that are sent to addresses that do not really exist. Otherwise stated, if you delete an email address and someone still sends a message to it, or to any mistyped email address under the very same domain, you will receive the email in the catch-all mailbox. Using this feature means that you won’t miss an email for any reason, which could be vital in case you are running some business, for example. Since you may start receiving junk email messages, you can combine the catch-all feature with anti-spam filtering software so as to get only real messages in your inbox. Only one single mailbox per domain can be a catch-all one and email forwarding cannot be enabled for a catch-all mailbox.
Catch-all Emails in Cloud Web Hosting
If you host a domain on our cloud platform and you have a cloud web hosting account, you will be able to enable the catch-all functionality for any mailbox that you create under the domain. The Hepsia hosting Control Panel’s Email Manager section comes with quite a few features, but it is stunningly simple to work with, so setting up a catch-all mailbox requires just a mouse click. All the email addresses that you’ve got will be displayed in this section alphabetically and you will only have to click on the "Catch-all" button pertaining to the respective address. Our system will notify you if there’s already another catch-all mailbox enabled for that domain name or if the one that you would like to be a catch-all mailbox has email forwarding enabled, so you can either disable the latter feature or pick some other mailbox. Disabling the catch-all feature is just as easy and requires yet another mouse click on the same button.
Catch-all Emails in Semi-dedicated Hosting
The catch-all functionality can be activated without any difficulty if you’ve got a semi-dedicated server account with us. All the email addresses that you have created with the domain names hosted in your semi-dedicated account will be listed in the Hepsia Control Panel’s Email Manager section and you will notice a mini sign conveniently situated right next to each one. With just a single click of the mouse, you can activate or deactivate the catch-all option for any mailbox of your choosing provided that there isn't another mailbox under that same domain name with the option already enabled and there isn't active email forwarding. Instead, you can right-click on an email address and enable this option through the contextual menu that will show up. If any of the preconditions for setting up a catch-all mailbox is not met, our system will inform you, but will not replace or deactivate anything automatically.
