A catch-all feature that is enabled for a certain mailbox will allow you to receive email messages that are sent to addresses that do not actually exist. To put it differently, if you disable an email address and someone still sends a message to it, or to any miswritten email address under the exact same domain, you’ll get the message in the catch-all mailbox. Using this feature implies that you won’t miss an email for any reason whatsoever, which could be crucial in case you run a company, for example. Since you may begin receiving junk email messages, you can use the catch-all option with anti-spam filters so as to get only legitimate emails 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 Cloud Web Hosting
In case you’ve got a cloud web hosting with our company and you wish to activate the catch-all functionality for a particular e-mailbox that you’ve got in your account, it’ll take literally just a click in the Email Manager section of your Hepsia hosting Control Panel to achieve that. A catch-all button is available on the right-hand side of each email address that you have set up under any domain registered in your account. You can pick one single address per domain by clicking the corresponding button. This will activate the feature instantaneously, so all email messages sent to mistyped addresses will be re-sent there. Clicking on the button again will disable the catch-all feature. In case you have activated email forwarding, our system will show a cautionary notice and you won’t be able to enable the catch-all feature till you deactivate the forwarding or you can simply pick another mailbox to be the catch-all one.
Catch-all Emails in Semi-dedicated Hosting
The catch-all option can be activated without effort in case you have a semi-dedicated server account with our company. All the email addresses that you have set up with the domains hosted in your semi-dedicated server account will be shown in the Email Manager section of your Hepsia Control Panel and you’ll see a small-size icon conveniently situated directly next to each of them. With only a single click, you can enable or disable the catch-all option for any mailbox of your choosing on the condition that there isn't another mailbox under the same domain with the option already activated and there isn't activated email forwarding. Alternatively, you can right-click on a mailbox and activate this feature through the contextual menu that will pop up. If any of the prerequisites for configuring a catch-all mailbox is not satisfied, our system will let you know, but will not replace or disable anything automatically.
