A catch-all functionality that is enabled for a given email mailbox will permit you to receive email messages that are sent to email addresses that do not really exist. Otherwise stated, if you deactivate an email address and someone still sends a message to it, or to any miswritten address under the exact same domain, you’ll receive the email in the catch-all mailbox. Using this functionality implies that you won’t miss an email for any reason, which could be vital if you are running a business, for instance. Since you may start receiving junk email messages, you can combine the catch-all option with anti-spam filtering software in order to receive only legitimate messages in your inbox. Just one single mailbox per domain can be a catch-all one and email forwarding cannot be enabled for a catch-all mailbox.
Catch-all Emails in Website Hosting
Creating a catch-all mailbox will be rather easy if you have a Linux website hosting with our company. You can enable the feature through our advanced, yet simple-to-work-with Email Manager, which is an indivisible part of the Hepsia Control Panel, via which you’ll administer the shared hosting account itself. You’ll see all the email addresses that you have created shown in alphabetical order and on the right-hand side of each one of them there will be a small "Catch-all" icon, which will instantly show you if a specific mailbox stores all the email messages associated with a certain domain name or not. With one click on the icon you can enable or disable this option whenever you want. In case there’s active email forwarding or in case some other mailbox has already been set up as a catch-all one for a certain domain, you will receive a warning notice from our system. The latter won’t deactivate/replace anything automatically and without your consent.
Catch-all Emails in Semi-dedicated Servers
A catch-all email address can be configured with a couple of clicks in case you have a semi-dedicated hosting service with our company. The semi-dedicated hosting account will be managed through our in-house built Hepsia hosting Control Panel and you will be able to create email addresses under any domain name hosted here. To enable the catch-all functionality for a specific mailbox, you will need to click on the icon with the exact same name, which will be next to each email address. Disabling this option can be accomplished in the very same fashion and will not require more than one click either. In case a catch-all mailbox has already been activated for a particular domain name, you will receive a notification. The same goes if the mailbox that you want to be a catch-all one has email forwarding activated, as our system will never deactivate or change any feature automatically.
