A catch-all functionality that is activated for a given email mailbox will allow you to receive emails that are sent to email addresses that do not actually exist. Otherwise put, if you remove an email address and somebody still sends an email to it, or to any misspelled email address under the very same domain, you’ll get the message in the catch-all mailbox. Using this functionality implies that you won’t miss an email for any reason whatsoever, which could be crucial in case you are running some business, for example. Since you may begin receiving unsolicited bulk email messages, you can use the catch-all feature with anti-spam filters in order to get only legitimate emails in your inbox. Just one single mailbox per domain name can be a catch-all one and email forwarding cannot be enabled for a catch-all mailbox.
Catch-all Emails in Hosting
If you have a hosting service with us and you would like to enable the catch-all option for a given e-mailbox that you’ve got in your hosting account, it’ll take literally just a single mouse click in the Email Manager section of your Hepsia hosting Control Panel to achieve this. A catch-all button is available on the right side of each and every email address that you have created under any domain registered in the account. You can choose one single address per domain name by clicking on the corresponding button. This will activate the feature right away, so all messages sent to mistyped addresses will be delivered there. Clicking the button once more will deactivate the catch-all feature. In case you have enabled email forwarding, our system will display a cautionary message and you will not be able to activate the catch-all feature unless you delete the forwarding or you can simply pick another mailbox to be the catch-all one.
Catch-all Emails in Semi-dedicated Hosting
A catch-all email address can be set up with a few clicks in case you’ve got a semi-dedicated service with us. The semi-dedicated hosting account will be managed through our custom-created Hepsia Control Panel and you will be able to create mailboxes under any domain name hosted here. To activate the catch-all option for a specific mailbox, you will need to click the symbol with the exact same name, which will be on the right side of each mailbox. Deactivating the feature can be accomplished in the very same way and will not take more than one click either. In case a catch-all mailbox has already been activated for a particular domain name, you will get a warning. The same goes if the mailbox that you would like to be a catch-all one has email forwarding enabled, as our system will never replace or disable anything automatically.
