A catch-all feature that is enabled for a specific email mailbox will permit you to receive emails that are sent to addresses that do not actually exist. To put it differently, if you deactivate an email address and someone still sends an email message to it, or to any miswritten address under the same domain, you’ll receive the message in the catch-all mailbox. Using this functionality implies that you won’t miss an email for any reason whatsoever, which could be vital in case you run a company, for instance. Since you may start receiving unsolicited emails, you can use the catch-all functionality with anti-spam filters in order to get only real emails in your inbox. Only one mailbox per domain name can be a catch-all one and email forwarding cannot be enabled for a catch-all mailbox.

Catch-all Emails in Hosting

In case you host a domain on our cloud web hosting platform and you’ve got a hosting account, you’ll be able to enable the catch-all functionality for any mailbox that you create under the domain name. The Email Manager section of the Hepsia hosting Control Panel offers quite a few functions, but it is really simple to use, so creating a catch-all mailbox takes just one single mouse click. All the email addresses that you have will be shown in this section in alphabetical order and you’ll simply have to click the "Catch-all" button for the particular email address. Our system will notify you if there is already another catch-all mailbox enabled 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 choose another mailbox. Deactivating the catch-all option is just as simple and takes one more mouse click on the exact same button.

Catch-all Emails in Semi-dedicated Hosting

The catch-all option can be activated without any effort if you’ve got a semi-dedicated server account with us. All the email addresses that you’ve created using the domains hosted in the semi-dedicated account will be enumerated in the Hepsia hosting Control Panel’s Email Manager section and you will see a small icon handily situated directly next to each one. With just one single click, you can enable or disable the catch-all option for any mailbox of your liking on the condition that there isn't another mailbox under the same domain name with the option already enabled and there isn't activated email forwarding. Instead, you can right-click on a mailbox and activate this feature through the menu that will come into view. If any of the conditions for setting up a catch-all mailbox is not matched, our system will notify you, but will not disable or replace anything automatically.
