A catch-all functionality that is activated for a particular e-mailbox will permit you to receive email messages that are sent to email addresses that do not actually exist. To state it differently, if you delete an email address and somebody still sends an email message to it, or to any mistyped email address under the exact same domain name, you will receive the email 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 if you run some company, for example. Since you may start receiving junk emails, you can use the catch-all option with anti-spam filtering software so as to receive only legitimate email messages in your inbox. Only one mailbox per domain can be a catch-all one and email forwarding cannot be set up for a catch-all mailbox.
Catch-all Emails in Shared Hosting
In case you’ve got a shared plan with us and you want to enable the catch-all functionality for a specific e-mailbox that you have in your hosting account, it’ll take literally just a single click of the mouse 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 set up under any domain hosted in the account. You can select one single email address per domain name by clicking the respective button. This will enable the feature instantaneously, so all emails sent to mistyped addresses will be received there. Clicking the button for a second time will disable the catch-all feature. In case you have active email forwarding, our system will show a cautionary note and you will not be able to activate the catch-all feature till you remove the forwarding or you can simply select a different mailbox to be the catch-all one.
Catch-all Emails in Semi-dedicated Servers
A catch-all email address can be configured with a few mouse clicks if you have a semi-dedicated plan with our company. The semi-dedicated hosting account will be administered via our custom Hepsia hosting Control Panel and you’ll be able to set up mailboxes under any domain name hosted there. To activate the catch-all option for a given mailbox, you’ll have to click the icon with the exact same name, which will be on the right side of each mailbox. Disabling this option can be done in the very same way and will not take more than one click either. In case a catch-all mailbox has already been activated for a given domain name, you’ll get a warning text message. The same is valid if the mailbox that you’d like to be a catch-all one has email forwarding enabled, as our system will never disable or edit any feature automatically.
