A catch-all functionality that is activated for a certain e-mailbox will allow you to receive email messages that are sent to email addresses that do not actually exist. To put it differently, if you disable an email address and somebody still sends an email to it, or to any mistyped address under the exact same domain, you will get the email in the catch-all mailbox. Using this functionality implies that you won’t miss an email for any reason whatsoever, which could be vital in case you run a company, for instance. Since you may start receiving junk messages, you can use the catch-all feature with email filters so as to receive only authentic emails 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 Cloud Web Hosting
Configuring a catch-all e-mailbox will be quite easy if you’ve got a Linux cloud web hosting with us. You can enable the feature through our advanced, yet easy-to-work-with Email Manager, which is part of the Hepsia hosting Control Panel, via which you will administer your shared hosting account. You will find all the mailboxes that you have set up enumerated in alphabetical order and next to each of them there will be a small "Catch-all" icon, which will quickly notify you if a specific mailbox gets all the emails pertaining to a given domain or not. With one single mouse click on the icon you can activate or deactivate this option whenever you want. If there is activated email forwarding or in case a different mailbox has already been set up as a catch-all one for a given domain, you will get an alert from our system. The latter will not replace/deactivate anything automatically or without your permission.
Catch-all Emails in Semi-dedicated Servers
A catch-all email address can be created with a few clicks if you’ve got a semi-dedicated service with us. The semi-dedicated account will be administered through our custom-built Hepsia Control Panel and you’ll be able to set up email addresses using any domain name hosted here. To activate the catch-all functionality for a mailbox, you’ll have to click on the sign with the same name, which will be on the right side of each email address. Deactivating this feature can be achieved in the very same way and will not take more than one click either. In case the catch-all functionality has already been enabled for a particular domain name, you will get a warning. The same is valid if the mailbox that you want to be a catch-all one has email forwarding enabled, as our system will never replace or disable any feature automatically.
