A catch-all functionality that is activated for a specific mailbox will permit you to receive email messages that are sent to email addresses that do not really exist. Otherwise put, if you deactivate an email address and somebody still sends an email to it, or to any miswritten email address under the same domain, 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 whatsoever, which could be crucial if you run a company, for instance. Since you may start receiving unsolicited email messages, you can combine the catch-all functionality with anti-spam filters in order to get only real messages in your inbox. Just one mailbox per domain name can be a catch-all one and email forwarding cannot be activated for a catch-all mailbox.
Catch-all Emails in Shared Web Hosting
You will be able to set up a catch-all email mailbox easily in case you have a shared web hosting account with us. The Email Manager tool in our in-house developed Hepsia Control Panel is fully featured, yet exceptionally intuitive, and it will enable you to enable different options, including the catch-all one, with only a couple of clicks. All the email addresses that you have will be listed in alphabetical order in this section and on the right side of each one you will see a tiny "Catch-all" button. Clicking on it once will enable this feature, clicking it twice will disable it. As you can have only one such catch-all mailbox per domain name, our system will warn you if you’ve already got a different mailbox with this option activated or if you’ve got active email forwarding.
Catch-all Emails in Semi-dedicated Servers
A catch-all email address can be configured with a couple of mouse clicks in case you’ve got a semi-dedicated server with our company. The hosting account will be managed through our custom-built Hepsia hosting Control Panel and you’ll be able to set up mailboxes using any domain name hosted there. To activate the catch-all functionality for a particular mailbox, you’ll have to click the logo with the exact same name, which will be to the right of each mailbox. Deactivating this feature can be accomplished in the same manner and will not require more than one click either. In case a catch-all mailbox has already been enabled for a specific domain, you’ll get a warning 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 replace anything automatically.
