A catch-all functionality that is activated for a particular mailbox will permit you to receive emails that are sent to addresses that do not really exist. To state it differently, if you delete an email address and someone still sends an email message to it, or to any mistyped email address under the same domain, you’ll receive the message in the catch-all mailbox. Using this feature implies that you will no longer miss an email for any reason whatsoever, which could be vital in case you are running a business, for example. Since you may begin receiving spam email messages, you can combine the catch-all option with email filters so as to receive only real emails in your inbox. Just one mailbox per domain can be a catch-all one and email forwarding cannot be enabled for a catch-all mailbox.
Catch-all Emails in Cloud Hosting
Setting up a catch-all e-mailbox will be truly easy in case you’ve got a cloud hosting with us. You can activate the feature through our advanced, albeit easy-to-use Email Manager tool, which is included in the Hepsia hosting Control Panel, via which you will administer your shared hosting account. You’ll see all the email addresses that you’ve set up displayed alphabetically and on the right-hand side of each of them there will be a small-size "Catch-all" icon, which will instantly show you if a certain mailbox gets all the messages pertaining to a given domain name or not. With one mouse click on the icon you can activate or deactivate this feature whenever you like. If there’s activated email forwarding or if a different mailbox has already been set up as a catch-all one for a certain domain name, you’ll receive a warning text message from our system. The latter won’t deactivate/replace anything automatically and without your consent.
Catch-all Emails in Semi-dedicated Hosting
The in-house created Hepsia Control Panel that is included with each semi-dedicated server package that we offer will permit you to set up a catch-all mailbox without difficulty even if you don’t have much web/email hosting experience. All you have to do to achieve that is click on the catch-all icon, which will be next to each mailbox that you have created with your domain names in the hosting Control Panel’s Email Manager section. As you can have only one single mailbox with this feature per domain, our system will notify you if you’ve already configured another catch-all mailbox or if the one that you would like to use has email forwarding activated. In case you reach the decision that you don’t need the feature anymore, you can disable it by clicking once again on the exact same icon. The Email Manager will also allow you to view your catch-all mailboxes at a glance.
