A catch-all feature that is activated for a given e-mailbox will allow you to receive email messages that are sent to addresses that do not really exist. Otherwise stated, if you disable an email address and someone still sends an email message to it, or to any misspelled email address under the exact same domain, you will receive the message in the catch-all mailbox. Using this feature means that you will no longer miss an email for any reason, which could be essential in case you are running some business, for example. Since you may begin receiving unsolicited bulk messages, you can combine the catch-all option with anti-spam filtering software in order to receive only legitimate email messages in your inbox. Only one single 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
In case you host a domain on our cloud web hosting platform and you’ve got a shared hosting account, you will be able to activate the catch-all functionality for any e-mailbox that you create under the domain. The Hepsia Control Panel’s Email Manager section includes quite a few features, but it’s remarkably user-friendly, so configuring a catch-all mailbox takes just a single click. All the email addresses that you have will be listed in this section alphabetically and you’ll only need to click on the "Catch-all" button associated with the respective email address. Our system will warn you if there’s already another catch-all mailbox activated for that domain or if the one that you want to be a catch-all mailbox has email forwarding enabled, so you can either turn off the latter feature or select some other mailbox. Disabling the catch-all feature is just as easy and requires one more mouse click on the same button.
Catch-all Emails in Semi-dedicated Hosting
The custom-developed Hepsia Control Panel that comes with each and every semi-dedicated server plan that we offer will allow you to create a catch-all email mailbox without any efforts even if you don’t have much web/email hosting experience. All you need to do to achieve that is click the catch-all icon, which will be to the right of each mailbox that you have created using your domains in the Control Panel’s Email Manager section. Since you can have only one single mailbox with this feature per domain, our system will warn you if you’ve already created another catch-all mailbox or if the one that you want to use has email forwarding activated. If you reach the decision that you don’t need the feature any longer, you can deactivate it by clicking once again on the very same icon. The Email Manager will also allow you to view your catch-all mailboxes at a glance.
