A catch-all feature that is enabled for a certain e-mailbox will allow you to receive emails that are sent to addresses that do not actually exist. Otherwise stated, if you deactivate an email address and somebody still sends an email to it, or to any misspelled email address under the very same domain name, you will get the email in the catch-all mailbox. Using this functionality implies that you will no longer miss an email for any reason, which could be vital in case you run a company, for instance. Since you may begin receiving spam email messages, you can use the catch-all option with anti-spam filtering software so as 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 set up for a catch-all mailbox.
Catch-all Emails in Website Hosting
You’ll be able to configure a catch-all email mailbox with ease in case you’ve got a website hosting plan with us. The Email Manager in our in-house created Hepsia Control Panel is full-featured, yet amazingly simple to use, and it will allow you to activate various options, including the catch-all one, with no more than several clicks of the mouse. All the mailboxes that you have created will be shown in alphabetical order in this section and on the right side of each one of them you will notice a mini "Catch-all" icon. Clicking it once will enable this feature, clicking on it again will deactivate it. Since you can have just one such catch-all mailbox per domain, our system will warn you if you’ve already got another one with this option enabled or if you have activated email forwarding.
Catch-all Emails in Semi-dedicated Servers
You’ll be able to create a catch-all email address with no more than a click in case you’ve got a semi-dedicated server with us and your emails are handled by our cloud hosting platform. All the email addresses that you create with any domain hosted in the semi-dedicated account will be displayed in the Email Manager section of your Hepsia hosting Control Panel. Each of them will have a mini "Catch-all" icon next to it, so all it will take to enable this functionality will be to click that icon. In the exact same manner you’ll be able to deactivate the feature, in case you don’t need it any longer. Our system will warn you in case you are trying to enable a 2nd catch-all address for a given domain or if there’s activated email forwarding, but it will never modify or deactivate any feature automatically and without your consent.
