A catch-all feature that is activated for a particular email mailbox will allow you to receive email messages that are sent to email addresses that do not actually exist. In other words, if you deactivate an email address and somebody still sends a message to it, or to any miswritten email address under the same domain, you will receive the message in the catch-all mailbox. Using this functionality implies that you won’t miss an email for any reason, which could be essential if you run some business, for example. Since you may begin receiving unsolicited emails, you can combine the catch-all functionality with anti-spam filtering software so as to get 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 Hosting

If you’ve got a Linux shared hosting with our company and you wish to activate the catch-all option for a particular mailbox that you have in your account, it’ll take literally just a single click of the mouse in the Email Manager section of your Hepsia Control Panel to achieve that. A catch-all button is available on the right side of each email address that you have created under any domain name hosted in the account. You can choose one address per domain by clicking the corresponding button. This will enable the feature straight away, so all messages sent to misspelled email addresses will be re-sent there. Clicking on the button once more will turn off the catch-all feature. In case you have activated email forwarding, our system will exhibit a warning notification and you won’t be able to enable the catch-all feature unless you disable the forwarding or you can simply choose another mailbox to be the catch-all one.

Catch-all Emails in Semi-dedicated Hosting

A catch-all email address can be configured with several mouse clicks in case you’ve got a Linux semi-dedicated service with our company. The hosting account will be administered through our in-house created Hepsia hosting Control Panel and you’ll be able to set up mailboxes with any domain name registered here. To enable the catch-all functionality for a particular mailbox, you will need to click on the symbol with the exact same name, which will be next to each mailbox. Disabling the feature can be achieved in the exact same way and will not take more than a click either. In case the catch-all feature has already been enabled for a particular domain name, you’ll receive a warning message. The same goes if the mailbox that you want to be a catch-all one has email forwarding enabled, as our system will never edit or deactivate any feature automatically.
