A catch-all functionality 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 put, if you deactivate an email address and someone still sends an email message to it, or to any mistyped address under the same domain, you’ll receive the message in the catch-all mailbox. Using this feature means that you will no longer miss an email for any reason whatsoever, which could be vital if you are running some business, for instance. Since you may start receiving unsolicited bulk messages, you can combine the catch-all functionality with anti-spam filters so as to get only authentic messages in your inbox. Just one single 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 Hosting
In case you host a domain name on our cloud platform and you have a hosting account, you will be able to activate the catch-all functionality for any mailbox that you set up under the domain name. The Hepsia hosting Control Panel’s Email Manager section comes with quite a few functions, but it’s remarkably user-friendly, so configuring a catch-all mailbox requires only one mouse click. All the email addresses that you have will be displayed in this section in alphabetical order and you’ll simply need to click the "Catch-all" button associated with the particular email address. Our system will notify you if there is already another catch-all mailbox enabled for that domain or if the one that you want to be a catch-all mailbox has email forwarding enabled, so you can either disable the latter feature or choose another mailbox. Deactivating the catch-all option is just as simple and requires yet another click on the same button.
Catch-all Emails in Semi-dedicated Hosting
You will be able to configure a catch-all email address with no more than one click in case you have a Linux semi-dedicated hosting with us and your emails are handled by our cloud hosting platform. All the addresses that you create with any domain name hosted in your semi-dedicated hosting account will be displayed in the Hepsia Control Panel’s Email Manager section. Each of them will have a mini "Catch-all" icon on its right-hand side, so all it will take to activate this feature will be to click on that icon. In the same manner you will be able to remove the feature, in case you don’t need it any longer. Our system will warn you in case you’re attempting to enable a second catch-all mailbox for a specific domain or in case there is active email forwarding, but it will never alter or deactivate any feature automatically or without your permission.
