A catch-all functionality that is activated for a particular mailbox will allow you to receive email messages that are sent to email addresses that do not actually exist. Otherwise put, if you deactivate an email address and someone still sends a message to it, or to any miswritten email address under the same domain, you’ll get the message in the catch-all mailbox. Using this feature implies that you won’t miss an email for any reason, which could be crucial in case you are running a company, for example. Since you may begin receiving junk messages, you can use the catch-all option with anti-spam filters so as to receive only legitimate email messages in your inbox. Only one mailbox per domain name can be a catch-all one and email forwarding cannot be set up for a catch-all mailbox.
Catch-all Emails in Web Hosting
Configuring a catch-all mailbox will be incredibly easy if you have a Linux web hosting with our company. You can activate this feature through our powerful, yet simple-to-work-with Email Manager, which is an indivisible part of the Hepsia Control Panel, via which you will administer your account. You’ll find all the email addresses that you have set up shown alphabetically and next to each one there will be a tiny "Catch-all" icon, which will instantly tell you if a particular mailbox stores all the email messages for a certain domain name or not. With one single click on the icon you can enable or disable this feature at any time. In case there’s enabled email forwarding or if another mailbox has already been set up as a catch-all one for a particular domain, you’ll receive a warning notification from our system. The latter won’t disable/replace anything automatically or without your permission.
Catch-all Emails in Semi-dedicated Hosting
A catch-all address can be set up with a few clicks of the mouse in case you have a Linux semi-dedicated hosting with us. The semi-dedicated hosting account will be managed via our custom-created Hepsia Control Panel and you will be able to create email addresses under any domain hosted there. To enable the catch-all feature for a mailbox, you will have to click the icon with the same name, which will be next to each mailbox. Disabling this feature can be achieved in the very same way and will not require more than a click either. If the catch-all feature has already been enabled for a specific domain name, you will get a warning notice. The same is valid if the mailbox that you’d like to be a catch-all one has email forwarding activated, as our system will never disable or modify anything automatically.
