A catch-all functionality that is activated for a certain e-mailbox will allow you to receive email messages that are sent to addresses that do not actually exist. Otherwise put, if you remove an email address and someone still sends a message to it, or to any miswritten address under the exact same domain, you will get the email 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 run some business, for example. Since you may start receiving spam emails, you can combine the catch-all option with anti-spam filters so as to get only authentic emails in your inbox. Only 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 Shared Website Hosting
Setting up a catch-all mailbox will be incredibly easy in case you’ve got a Linux shared website hosting with us. You can enable this option through our advanced, albeit user-friendly Email Manager tool, which is built into the Hepsia hosting Control Panel, via which you will manage your web hosting account. You’ll see all the email addresses that you have set up enumerated alphabetically and next to each one of them there will be a small-size "Catch-all" icon, which will instantaneously let you know if a certain mailbox receives all the messages pertaining to a given domain name or not. With one mouse click on the icon you can enable or disable the feature at any moment. If there’s enabled email forwarding or in case some other mailbox has already been configured as a catch-all one for a specific domain name, you’ll get a warning notification from our system. The latter will not deactivate/replace anything automatically or without your consent.
Catch-all Emails in Semi-dedicated Hosting
You’ll be able to set up a catch-all address with no more than one click if you’ve got a Linux semi-dedicated hosting with us and your email messages are handled by our cloud platform. All the addresses that you create with any domain hosted in your account will be listed in the Email Manager section of your Hepsia Control Panel. Each of them will have a tiny "Catch-all" icon next to it, so all it will take to enable this feature will be to click that icon. In the very same fashion you’ll be able to disable the feature, in case you no longer need it. Our system will notify you if you are trying to enable a second catch-all mailbox for a given domain or if there’s active email forwarding, but it’ll never deactivate or change any feature automatically and without your permission.
