A catch-all functionality that is enabled for a specific e-mailbox will permit you to receive email messages that are sent to email addresses that do not actually exist. In other words, if you disable an email address and someone still sends an email message to it, or to any miswritten address under the same domain, you will 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 crucial if you run a business, for instance. Since you may start receiving unsolicited email messages, you can use the catch-all feature with anti-spam filters in order to receive only legitimate emails in your inbox. Just one single mailbox per domain can be a catch-all one and email forwarding cannot be activated for a catch-all mailbox.

Catch-all Emails in Shared Website Hosting

If you’ve got a Linux shared website hosting service with our company and you wish to enable the catch-all option for a particular e-mailbox that you’ve got in the web hosting account, it’ll take literally just a click of the mouse in the Email Manager section of your Hepsia Control Panel to achieve this. A catch-all button is available on the right side of each email address that you have set up under any domain name hosted in your account. You can choose one address per domain by clicking on the corresponding button. This will activate the feature momentarily, so all emails sent to mistyped email addresses will be received there. Clicking on the button for a second time will turn off the catch-all feature. If you’ve got enabled email forwarding, our system will exhibit a warning message and you won’t be able to enable the catch-all feature unless you disable the forwarding or you can simply choose some other mailbox to be the catch-all one.

Catch-all Emails in Semi-dedicated Servers

The catch-all feature can be enabled without difficulty if you’ve got a semi-dedicated server account with our company. All the email addresses that you’ve set up with the domains hosted in your account will be listed in the Email Manager section of your Hepsia Control Panel and you will notice a mini logo handily located directly next to each one. With only a single mouse click, you can activate or deactivate the catch-all option for any mailbox of your desire provided that there isn't another mailbox under the same domain name with this option already enabled and there isn't activated email forwarding. Alternatively, you can right-click on an email address and enable this feature through the context menu that will show up. In case any of the conditions for creating a catch-all mailbox is not satisfied, our system will let you know, but will not replace or deactivate anything automatically.
