A catch-all feature that is enabled for a particular mailbox will allow you to receive emails that are sent to email addresses that do not actually exist. Otherwise put, if you remove an email address and someone still sends an email message to it, or to any miswritten address under the very same domain, you’ll receive the email in the catch-all mailbox. Using this functionality implies that you will no longer miss an email for any reason whatsoever, which could be essential if you run a business, for example. Since you may begin receiving unsolicited emails, you can combine the catch-all option with email filters so as to get only real email messages in your inbox. Just one single mailbox per domain can be a catch-all one and email forwarding cannot be set up for a catch-all mailbox.
Catch-all Emails in Cloud Website Hosting
If you have a cloud website hosting service with us and you wish to enable the catch-all feature for a specific email mailbox that you have in your hosting account, it’ll take literally just one mouse click in the Email Manager section of your Hepsia hosting Control Panel to accomplish that. A catch-all button is available on the right side of each email address that you have set up under any domain name registered in your account. You can pick one single email address per domain name by clicking the respective button. This will activate the feature momentarily, so all email messages sent to misspelled email addresses will be re-sent there. Clicking on the button for a second time will deactivate the catch-all feature. In case you’ve got enabled email forwarding, our system will show a cautionary message and you won’t be able to activate the catch-all feature till you disable the forwarding or you can simply select another mailbox to be the catch-all one.
Catch-all Emails in Semi-dedicated Hosting
You will be able to create a catch-all email address with no more than one click in case you have a semi-dedicated hosting with us and your emails are handled by our cloud platform. All the addresses that you create with any domain hosted in your semi-dedicated hosting account will be shown in the Hepsia Control Panel’s Email Manager section. Each of them will have a mini "Catch-all" icon next to it, so all it will take to enable this feature will be to click that icon. In the very same manner you will be able to disable the feature, in case you do not need it anymore. Our system will notify you if you’re trying to enable a 2nd catch-all address for a certain domain or in case there’s active email forwarding, but it’ll never alter or deactivate anything automatically and without your permission.
