A catch-all functionality that is activated for a particular e-mailbox will allow you to receive email messages that are sent to email addresses that do not actually exist. In other words, if you deactivate an email address and somebody still sends an email to it, or to any misspelled email address under the exact same domain name, you will receive 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 crucial in case you are running a business, for instance. Since you may begin receiving junk messages, you can combine the catch-all feature with email filters so as to get only authentic email messages in your inbox. Just 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 Shared Web Hosting
You’ll be able to configure a catch-all mailbox without effort in case you’ve got a shared web hosting account with us. The Email Manager tool in our custom-built Hepsia Control Panel is full-featured, yet amazingly intuitive, and it will enable you to activate various features, including the catch-all one, with only several mouse clicks. All the email addresses that you have created will be listed alphabetically in this section and to the right of each one of them you’ll notice a mini "Catch-all" sign. Clicking it once will activate this feature, clicking on it for a second time will disable it. As you can have just one such catch-all mailbox per domain name, our system will inform you if you already have another mailbox with this option enabled or if you have active email forwarding.
Catch-all Emails in Semi-dedicated Hosting
The catch-all functionality can be activated without any effort if you’ve got a semi-dedicated server account with us. All the email addresses that you have set up with the domain names hosted in the account will be shown in the Email Manager section of your Hepsia hosting Control Panel and you’ll find a small logo conveniently located directly next to each one of them. With only one single mouse click, you can activate or deactivate the catch-all option for any mailbox of your choosing on the condition that there isn't another mailbox under that same domain name with this option already activated and there isn't enabled email forwarding. Alternatively, you can right-click on a mailbox and enable the feature through the menu that will surface. In case any of the requirements for configuring a catch-all mailbox is not fulfilled, our system will let you know, but will not deactivate or replace anything automatically.
