A catch-all feature that is activated for a particular email mailbox will permit you to receive emails that are sent to email addresses that do not actually exist. Otherwise put, if you delete an email address and someone still sends an email to it, or to any mistyped email address under the very same domain name, you will receive the email in the catch-all mailbox. Using this feature implies that you will no longer miss an email for any reason whatsoever, which could be crucial in case you run a company, for example. Since you may start receiving unsolicited bulk messages, you can use the catch-all option with anti-spam filtering software in order to receive only real email messages 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 Shared Web Hosting
Creating a catch-all email mailbox will be incredibly easy in case you’ve got a Linux shared web hosting with us. You can enable the feature through our powerful, yet easy-to-work-with Email Manager tool, which is an indivisible part of the Hepsia Control Panel, via which you’ll administer the shared hosting account itself. You will see all the email addresses that you have set up listed in alphabetical order and to the right of each of them there will be a mini "Catch-all" icon, which will instantly notify you whether a certain mailbox stores all the messages pertaining to a given domain name or not. With one mouse click on the icon you can activate or deactivate the feature whenever you like. In case there is active email forwarding or in case a different mailbox has already been set up as a catch-all one for a certain domain name, you’ll receive a warning text message from our system. The latter will not deactivate/replace anything automatically and without your consent.
Catch-all Emails in Semi-dedicated Servers
The catch-all feature can be activated effortlessly in case you have a semi-dedicated server account with us. All the email addresses that you’ve set up with the domains hosted in the semi-dedicated server account will be displayed in the Hepsia hosting Control Panel’s Email Manager section and you’ll find a small-size button handily situated directly next to each of them. With just one single click, you can enable or disable the catch-all option for any mailbox of your liking as long as there isn't another mailbox under that same domain name with the option already enabled and there isn't activated email forwarding. Alternatively, you can right-click on a mailbox and enable this feature through the context menu that will show up. If any of the requirements for creating a catch-all mailbox is not satisfied, our system will notify you, but will not replace or disable anything automatically.
