A catch-all functionality that is activated for a specific email mailbox will permit you to receive email messages that are sent to addresses that do not really exist. Otherwise stated, if you remove an email address and someone still sends an email 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 functionality means that you won’t miss an email for any reason whatsoever, which could be essential if you run a business, for example. Since you may begin receiving unsolicited messages, you can use the catch-all functionality with anti-spam filtering software so as to receive only real emails in your inbox. Just one 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 Cloud Web Hosting
Creating a catch-all e-mailbox will be quite easy in case you have a Linux cloud web hosting with us. You can enable this option through our powerful, yet easy-to-work-with Email Manager tool, which is part of the Hepsia Control Panel, via which you will administer your shared hosting account. You’ll see all the mailboxes that you’ve created enumerated alphabetically and on the right side of each of them there will be a mini "Catch-all" icon, which will instantly inform you whether a certain mailbox gets all the messages associated with a certain domain or not. With one click on the icon you can activate or deactivate this feature at any moment. In case there is activated email forwarding or if another mailbox has already been configured as a catch-all one for a certain domain, you will get a warning text message from our system. The latter won’t deactivate/replace anything automatically or without your permission.
Catch-all Emails in Semi-dedicated Servers
The catch-all feature can be enabled without effort if you have a semi-dedicated server plan with our company. All the email addresses that you have set up with the domains hosted in your semi-dedicated server account will be enumerated in the Email Manager section of your Hepsia hosting Control Panel and you will find a small logo conveniently located directly next to each one of them. With just one single mouse click, you can enable or disable the catch-all option for any mailbox of your desire provided that there isn't another mailbox under the same domain name with this option already activated and there isn't activated email forwarding. Alternatively, you can right-click on a mailbox and activate this option using the contextual menu that will surface. In case any of the prerequisites for configuring a catch-all mailbox is not matched, our system will let you know, but will not replace or deactivate anything automatically.
