A catch-all functionality that is activated for a given e-mailbox will permit you to receive email messages that are sent to addresses that do not really exist. Otherwise put, if you delete an email address and somebody still sends an email message to it, or to any mistyped email address under the 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, which could be crucial in case you are running some company, for example. Since you may begin receiving unsolicited bulk emails, you can combine the catch-all option with anti-spam filters in order to receive only real emails 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 Hosting
You will be able to create a catch-all email mailbox without effort if you have a shared hosting plan with our company. The Email Manager in our in-house created Hepsia Control Panel is feature-rich, yet very easy to work with, and it will enable you to activate different options, including the catch-all one, with only several clicks of the mouse. All the mailboxes that you’ve set up will be enumerated in alphabetical order in this section and on the right side of each one of them you’ll notice a small-size "Catch-all" icon. Clicking on it once will activate the feature, clicking it for a second time will deactivate it. As you can have just one such catch-all mailbox per domain, our system will notify you if you’ve already got another one with this feature enabled or if you have enabled email forwarding.
Catch-all Emails in Semi-dedicated Hosting
The catch-all feature can be activated without difficulty in case you have a semi-dedicated server account with our company. All the email addresses that you’ve set up using the domains hosted in your semi-dedicated server account will be shown in the Hepsia Control Panel’s Email Manager section and you’ll find a small logo handily situated right next to each one of them. With only one single click of the mouse, you can activate or deactivate the catch-all option for any mailbox of your liking provided that there isn't another mailbox under the same domain with the option already enabled and there isn't activated email forwarding. Instead, you can right-click on a mailbox and activate this option through the menu that will pop up. If any of the preconditions for creating a catch-all mailbox is not satisfied, our system will notify you, but will not deactivate or replace anything automatically.
