A catch-all feature that is enabled for a certain e-mailbox will allow you to receive email messages that are sent to addresses that do not actually exist. To state it differently, if you remove an email address and someone still sends an email to it, or to any mistyped email address under the exact same domain name, you will receive the message in the catch-all mailbox. Using this feature means that you won’t miss an email for any reason, which could be crucial if you run a business, for instance. Since you may begin receiving spam email messages, you can combine the catch-all functionality with anti-spam filtering software in order to get only real messages in your inbox. Just one single mailbox per domain can be a catch-all one and email forwarding cannot be activated for a catch-all mailbox.
Catch-all Emails in Shared Hosting
In case you host a domain name on our cloud web hosting platform and you’ve got a shared hosting account, you will be able to enable the catch-all functionality for any mailbox that you set up under the domain. The Email Manager section of the Hepsia hosting Control Panel offers quite a few functions, but it’s stunningly user-friendly, so setting up a catch-all mailbox takes just a single mouse click. All the email addresses that you have will be shown in this section alphabetically and you will only have to click the "Catch-all" button for the concrete email address. Our system will alert you if there is already another catch-all mailbox activated for that domain name or if the one that you want to be a catch-all mailbox has email forwarding activated, so you can either deactivate the latter feature or pick some other mailbox. Deactivating the catch-all feature is just as simple and takes yet another mouse click on the very same button.
Catch-all Emails in Semi-dedicated Servers
A catch-all email address can be created with a few mouse clicks in case you have a semi-dedicated plan with our company. The semi-dedicated account will be administered via our in-house developed Hepsia hosting Control Panel and you will be able to create mailboxes using any domain name hosted here. To activate the catch-all functionality for a particular mailbox, you’ll have to click the sign with the exact same name, which will be on the right side of each email address. Deactivating this option can be done in the exact same manner and will not take more than a click either. In case the catch-all feature has already been enabled for a specific domain name, you will receive a notification. 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 deactivate or edit any feature automatically.
