A catch-all feature that is enabled for a specific mailbox will permit you to receive emails that are sent to addresses that do not actually exist. Otherwise said, if you disable an email address and somebody still sends an email to it, or to any mistyped email address under the same domain name, you will receive the email in the catch-all mailbox. Using this feature implies that you will no longer miss an email for any reason, which could be vital if you are running a business, for example. Since you may start receiving junk email messages, you can combine the catch-all option with anti-spam 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 activated for a catch-all mailbox.

Catch-all Emails in Hosting

In case you have a Linux hosting with us and you want to enable the catch-all functionality for a certain e-mailbox that you have in the web hosting account, it will take literally just a single click of the mouse in the Email Manager section of your Hepsia hosting Control Panel to do this. A catch-all button is available on the right-hand side of each and every email address that you have set up under any domain name registered in the account. You can pick one email address per domain name by clicking on the corresponding button. This will activate the feature immediately, so all email messages sent to mistyped email addresses will be received there. Clicking the button once again will deactivate the catch-all feature. In case you’ve got enabled email forwarding, our system will exhibit a warning note and you will not be able to enable the catch-all feature until you deactivate the forwarding or you can simply choose some other mailbox to be the catch-all one.

Catch-all Emails in Semi-dedicated Hosting

The catch-all option can be activated without any difficulty if you’ve got a semi-dedicated server account with us. All the email addresses that you’ve set up using the domain names hosted in the semi-dedicated server account will be displayed in the Hepsia hosting Control Panel’s Email Manager section and you will notice a small-size symbol conveniently located right next to each one. With just a click of the mouse, you can activate or deactivate the catch-all option for any mailbox of your choice as long as there isn't another mailbox under that same domain with the option already activated and there isn't activated email forwarding. Instead, you can right-click on an email address and enable this option through the menu that will show up. If any of the prerequisites for configuring a catch-all mailbox is not answered, our system will notify you, but will not replace or disable anything automatically.
