A catch-all functionality that is enabled for a particular mailbox will permit you to receive email messages that are sent to addresses that do not actually exist. To put it differently, if you disable an email address and somebody still sends a message to it, or to any mistyped email address under the very same domain name, you’ll receive 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 essential if you run a business, for example. Since you may start receiving unsolicited email messages, you can combine the catch-all functionality with anti-spam filters in order to get only legitimate 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 Hosting
If you host a domain on our cloud platform and you’ve got a shared hosting account, you will be able to enable the catch-all functionality for any email mailbox that you create under the domain. The Hepsia Control Panel’s Email Manager section offers quite a lot of features, but it’s really easy to use, so setting up a catch-all mailbox takes just one single mouse click. All the email addresses that you’ve got will be displayed in this section alphabetically and you’ll simply need to click on the "Catch-all" button pertaining to the concrete email address. Our system will inform you if there’s already another catch-all mailbox activated for that domain or if the one that you’d like to be a catch-all mailbox has email forwarding enabled, so you can either disable the latter feature or pick some other mailbox. Deactivating the catch-all feature is just as easy and takes one more click on the same button.
Catch-all Emails in Semi-dedicated Hosting
A catch-all address can be configured with a few clicks in case you’ve got a Linux semi-dedicated hosting with us. The semi-dedicated hosting account will be administered through our in-house developed Hepsia Control Panel and you will be able to create mailboxes using any domain name hosted there. To activate the catch-all option for a certain mailbox, you will need to click the logo with the same name, which will be next to each mailbox. Deactivating this functionality can be done in the very same way and will not take more than a click either. If a catch-all mailbox has already been activated for a given domain, you’ll receive a warning. The same goes if the mailbox that you want to be a catch-all one has email forwarding enabled, as our system will never alter or deactivate anything automatically.
