A catch-all functionality that is activated for a specific mailbox will allow you to receive emails that are sent to addresses that do not really exist. Otherwise said, if you disable an email address and someone still sends an email to it, or to any misspelled address under the same domain name, you’ll get the message in the catch-all mailbox. Using this functionality implies that you will no longer miss an email for any reason whatsoever, which could be crucial in case you are running some company, for instance. Since you may begin receiving unsolicited bulk emails, you can use the catch-all option with anti-spam filtering software in order to receive only real email messages in your inbox. Only one single mailbox per domain can be a catch-all one and email forwarding cannot be activated for a catch-all mailbox.
Catch-all Emails in Shared Website Hosting
If you have a shared website hosting plan with us and you wish to activate the catch-all feature for a certain mailbox that you have in your account, it will take literally only a click in the Email Manager section of your Hepsia Control Panel to accomplish this. A catch-all button is available to the right of each email address that you have created under any domain hosted in the account. You can pick one single address per domain name by clicking on the respective button. This will enable the feature momentarily, so all messages sent to misspelled addresses will be received there. Clicking on the button again will deactivate the catch-all feature. In case you’ve got enabled email forwarding, our system will exhibit a cautionary note and you won’t be able to enable the catch-all feature unless you disable the forwarding or you can simply select some other mailbox to be the catch-all one.
Catch-all Emails in Semi-dedicated Servers
You’ll be able to create a catch-all email address with no more than one click in case you have a semi-dedicated hosting plan with our company and your emails are handled by our cloud hosting platform. All the addresses that you create with any domain hosted in your semi-dedicated hosting account will be shown in the Hepsia Control Panel’s Email Manager section. Each of them will have a tiny "Catch-all" icon on its right-hand side, so all it will take to enable this option will be to click that icon. In the very same way you’ll be able to remove the feature, in case you don’t need it any longer. Our system will let you know in case you’re trying to activate a second catch-all email address for a specific domain name or if there is activated email forwarding, but it’ll never change or disable any feature automatically or without your permission.
