A catch-all functionality that is activated for a certain mailbox will allow you to receive email messages that are sent to email addresses that do not actually exist. To put it differently, if you deactivate an email address and somebody still sends an email message to it, or to any miswritten email address under the same domain, you will receive the email in the catch-all mailbox. Using this functionality means that you won’t miss an email for any reason, which could be essential in case you run a company, for example. Since you may begin receiving spam messages, you can use the catch-all functionality with email filters so as to get only legitimate messages 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 Cloud Hosting
If you host a domain on our cloud platform and you have a cloud hosting account, you’ll be able to activate the catch-all feature for any 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 amazingly easy to work with, so configuring a catch-all mailbox takes only one mouse click. All the email addresses that you have set up will be shown in this section in alphabetical order and you will simply need to click the "Catch-all" button associated with the particular address. Our system will notify you if there is already another catch-all mailbox activated for that domain name or if the one that you’d like to be a catch-all mailbox has email forwarding activated, so you can either deactivate the latter feature or pick another mailbox. Deactivating the catch-all option is just as simple and requires yet another click on the very same button.
Catch-all Emails in Semi-dedicated Servers
A catch-all address can be created with several clicks in case you’ve got a semi-dedicated server with us. The hosting account will be managed through our custom-built Hepsia hosting Control Panel and you will be able to create mailboxes under any domain registered here. To activate the catch-all feature for a mailbox, you’ll have to click on the logo with the exact same name, which will be next to each mailbox. Disabling this feature can be done in the same fashion and will not require more than one click either. If the catch-all feature has already been activated for a given domain, you will get a warning notice. The same is valid if the mailbox that you wish to be a catch-all one has email forwarding activated, as our system will never disable or replace any feature automatically.
