A catch-all functionality that is enabled for a given mailbox will permit you to receive email messages that are sent to email addresses that do not really exist. To put it differently, if you disable an email address and someone still sends an email message to it, or to any mistyped email address under the very same domain name, you’ll 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 a business, for instance. Since you may begin receiving spam email messages, you can use the catch-all functionality with anti-spam filters so as to get only legitimate email messages in your inbox. Just 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 Website Hosting

In case you have a Linux website hosting plan with us and you’d like to enable the catch-all functionality for a given e-mailbox that you’ve got in your web hosting account, it will take literally just one mouse click in the Email Manager section of your Hepsia hosting Control Panel to accomplish that. A catch-all button is available on the right side of each and every email address that you have set up under any domain name hosted in the account. You can pick one single email address per domain by clicking on the respective button. This will enable the feature momentarily, so all email messages sent to misspelled addresses will be re-sent there. Clicking the button for a second time will deactivate the catch-all feature. In case you’ve got active email forwarding, our system will display a warning notification and you will not be able to enable the catch-all feature unless you remove the forwarding or you can simply pick a different mailbox to be the catch-all one.

Catch-all Emails in Semi-dedicated Servers

A catch-all email address can be created with several mouse clicks if you have a semi-dedicated server with our company. The hosting account will be administered through our in-house built Hepsia Control Panel and you will be able to create mailboxes with any domain name hosted here. To activate the catch-all option for a particular mailbox, you will have to click the sign with the same name, which will be to the right of each mailbox. Disabling this feature can be achieved in the same fashion and will not take more than a click either. If the catch-all feature has already been activated for a certain domain name, you’ll get a warning notice. The same goes if the mailbox that you would like to be a catch-all one has email forwarding activated, as our system will never change or disable anything automatically.
