A catch-all feature that is enabled for a given email mailbox will permit you to receive email messages that are sent to email addresses that do not actually exist. To put it differently, if you deactivate an email address and someone still sends a message to it, or to any misspelled email address under the very same domain, you will get the email in the catch-all mailbox. Using this feature means that you will no longer miss an email for any reason whatsoever, which could be essential in case you run a business, for instance. Since you may start receiving spam emails, you can use the catch-all feature with anti-spam filters so as to receive only legitimate email 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 Cloud Website Hosting
In case you have a cloud website hosting with us and you wish to activate the catch-all functionality for a specific email mailbox that you’ve got in the account, it’ll take literally just a single 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-hand side of each and every email address that you have set up under any domain name registered in your account. You can pick one email address per domain name by clicking the corresponding button. This will activate the feature straight away, so all emails sent to miswritten email addresses will be received there. Clicking on the button once again will deactivate the catch-all feature. In case you’ve got activated email forwarding, our system will show a warning message and you will not be able to enable the catch-all feature until you deactivate the forwarding or you can simply choose another mailbox to be the catch-all one.
Catch-all Emails in Semi-dedicated Servers
You’ll be able to create a catch-all email address with no more than a click if you’ve got a semi-dedicated server with our company and your emails are handled by our cloud platform. All the email addresses that you set up using any domain hosted in the semi-dedicated account will be listed in the Hepsia Control Panel’s Email Manager section. Each of them will have a tiny "Catch-all" icon on its right-hand side, so all it will take to activate this feature will be to click that icon. In the very same manner you will be able to disable the feature, if you don’t need it anymore. Our system will let you know in case you’re attempting to activate a second catch-all email address for a specific domain name or in case there is activated email forwarding, but it’ll never modify or disable any feature automatically or without your approval.
