A catch-all functionality that is enabled for a certain e-mailbox will allow you to receive email messages that are sent to addresses that do not really exist. In other words, if you disable an email address and somebody still sends an email message to it, or to any mistyped address under the same domain, you will receive the email in the catch-all mailbox. Using this feature implies that you won’t miss an email for any reason, which could be vital if you are running a company, for instance. Since you may start receiving junk emails, you can combine the catch-all feature with anti-spam filtering software so as to get only authentic email messages in your inbox. Just one single 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 Shared Website Hosting
In case you’ve got a Linux shared website hosting with us and you wish to activate the catch-all option for a given mailbox that you’ve got in the account, it’ll take literally only one single click in the Email Manager section of your Hepsia Control Panel to achieve that. A catch-all button is available to the right of each and every email address that you have set up under any domain name registered in the account. You can pick one address per domain by clicking on the respective button. This will activate the feature momentarily, so all messages sent to mistyped addresses will be re-sent there. Clicking on the button for a second time will deactivate the catch-all feature. If you have active email forwarding, our system will display a cautionary note and you won’t be able to activate the catch-all feature until you delete the forwarding or you can simply select another mailbox to be the catch-all one.
Catch-all Emails in Semi-dedicated Hosting
The catch-all functionality can be enabled without effort in case you have a semi-dedicated server plan with us. All the email addresses that you’ve set up using the domain names hosted in your account will be displayed in the Email Manager section of your Hepsia Control Panel and you will notice a mini logo conveniently located directly next to each of them. With only one single click, you can enable or disable the catch-all option for any mailbox of your preference provided that there isn't another mailbox under that same domain with the option already activated and there isn't enabled email forwarding. Alternatively, you can right-click on a mailbox and enable this feature through the menu that will surface. If any of the preconditions for setting up a catch-all mailbox is not fulfilled, our system will inform you, but will not replace or disable anything automatically.
