A catch-all functionality that is enabled for a certain e-mailbox will allow you to receive emails that are sent to email addresses that do not really exist. To put it differently, if you disable an email address and somebody still sends a message to it, or to any misspelled email address under the exact same domain, you’ll get the message in the catch-all mailbox. Using this functionality means that you will no longer miss an email for any reason whatsoever, which could be crucial in case you run some business, for instance. Since you may begin receiving unsolicited emails, you can combine the catch-all option with email filters in order to get only legitimate email messages in your inbox. Only one 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 Hosting
If you host a domain on our cloud hosting platform and you’ve got a hosting account, you will be able to activate the catch-all functionality for any e-mailbox that you create under the domain name. The Hepsia hosting Control Panel’s Email Manager section includes quite a lot of functions, but it is exceptionally user-friendly, so configuring a catch-all mailbox takes just a mouse click. All the email addresses that you have will be displayed in this section alphabetically and you’ll simply need to click on the "Catch-all" button pertaining to the particular email address. Our system will notify you if there’s already another catch-all mailbox activated for that domain or if the one that you’d like to be a catch-all mailbox has email forwarding enabled, so you can either turn off the latter feature or select a different mailbox. Deactivating the catch-all option is just as simple and takes yet another click on the very same button.
Catch-all Emails in Semi-dedicated Servers
The catch-all option can be enabled effortlessly if you have a semi-dedicated server account with our company. All the email addresses that you have set up using the domains hosted in your semi-dedicated account will be enumerated in the Email Manager section of your Hepsia Control Panel and you will notice a mini icon conveniently situated right next to each one of them. With only a single click of the mouse, you can activate or deactivate the catch-all option for any mailbox of your preference provided that there isn't another mailbox under that same domain with the option already activated and there isn't enabled email forwarding. Alternatively, you can right-click on an email address and enable the feature using the context menu that will come into view. In case any of the requirements for creating a catch-all mailbox is not fulfilled, our system will notify you, but will not deactivate or replace anything automatically.
