A catch-all functionality that is activated for a certain email mailbox will allow you to receive emails that are sent to email addresses that do not actually exist. To put it differently, if you disable an email address and somebody still sends an email to it, or to any misspelled email address under the exact same domain, you’ll receive the message in the catch-all mailbox. Using this functionality means that you will no longer miss an email for any reason, which could be essential if you run a business, for example. Since you may start receiving unsolicited bulk email messages, you can combine the catch-all option with anti-spam filtering software in order to receive only real emails in your inbox. Only one mailbox per domain name can be a catch-all one and email forwarding cannot be set up for a catch-all mailbox.
Catch-all Emails in Website Hosting
You’ll be able to create a catch-all e-mailbox without difficulty if you have a website hosting plan with us. The Email Manager in our in-house developed Hepsia Control Panel is feature-rich, yet extremely user-friendly, and it will allow you to enable various features, including the catch-all one, with just a couple of clicks of the mouse. All the mailboxes that you’ve got will be displayed in alphabetical order in this section and to the right of each one you’ll find a small-size "Catch-all" button. Clicking it once will enable this option, clicking it once again will disable it. As you can have just one such catch-all mailbox per domain, our system will alert you if you already have another mailbox with this option activated or if you have enabled email forwarding.
Catch-all Emails in Semi-dedicated Servers
You’ll be able to set up a catch-all address with no more than a click if you have a semi-dedicated server with our company and your emails are handled by our cloud web hosting platform. All the mailboxes that you set up using any domain name hosted in the account will be enumerated in the Hepsia hosting Control Panel’s Email Manager section. Each of them will have a small "Catch-all" icon next to it, so all it will take to enable this feature will be to click that icon. In the exact same fashion you’ll be able to deactivate the feature, in case you do not need it anymore. Our system will let you know if you’re attempting to enable a second catch-all mailbox for a certain domain or if there’s activated email forwarding, but it will never deactivate or change any feature automatically and without your consent.
