A catch-all feature that is activated for a certain mailbox will allow you to receive email messages that are sent to email addresses that do not really exist. To state it differently, if you disable an email address and someone still sends an email to it, or to any misspelled email address under the very same domain name, you will receive the message in the catch-all mailbox. Using this feature means that you won’t miss an email for any reason, which could be essential in case you run some company, for example. Since you may start receiving spam messages, you can combine the catch-all option with anti-spam filtering software so as to receive only legitimate messages in your inbox. Just one single mailbox per domain can be a catch-all one and email forwarding cannot be enabled for a catch-all mailbox.
Catch-all Emails in Shared Hosting
You’ll be able to create a catch-all email mailbox with ease if you have a shared hosting plan with our company. The Email Manager in our custom-developed Hepsia hosting Control Panel is full-featured, yet very user-friendly, and it will allow you to enable various features, including the catch-all one, with only a couple of clicks of the mouse. All the mailboxes that you’ve created will be listed alphabetically in this section and on the right side of each one you’ll see a small "Catch-all" logo. Clicking it once will activate the feature, clicking it twice will deactivate it. As you can have just one such mailbox per domain, our system will warn you if you’ve already got another mailbox with this option activated or if you have activated email forwarding.
Catch-all Emails in Semi-dedicated Hosting
The catch-all feature can be activated without any difficulty if you’ve got a semi-dedicated server plan with our company. All the email addresses that you’ve created with the domain names hosted in the account will be shown in the Hepsia Control Panel’s Email Manager section and you will see a small button conveniently situated right next to each one. With only one mouse click, you can activate or deactivate the catch-all option for any mailbox of your preference provided that there isn't another mailbox under that same domain with the option already activated and there isn't activated email forwarding. Alternatively, you can right-click on a mailbox and activate the feature using the contextual menu that will come into view. In case any of the prerequisites for creating a catch-all mailbox is not answered, our system will inform you, but will not deactivate or replace anything automatically.
