A catch-all feature that is activated for a given email mailbox will permit you to receive email messages that are sent to addresses that do not really exist. Otherwise stated, if you disable an email address and somebody still sends a message to it, or to any misspelled address under the exact same domain, you’ll receive the email in the catch-all mailbox. Using this feature means that you won’t miss an email for any reason, which could be vital in case you are running a business, for example. Since you may begin receiving spam, you can combine the catch-all functionality with anti-spam filters in order to receive only authentic messages in your inbox. Just one mailbox per domain name can be a catch-all one and email forwarding cannot be enabled for a catch-all mailbox.
Catch-all Emails in Web Hosting
You’ll be able to create a catch-all mailbox without effort if you have a web hosting plan with us. The Email Manager tool in our custom-created Hepsia Control Panel is feature-laden, yet really simple to use, and it will enable you to activate different features, including the catch-all one, with just several clicks. All the mailboxes that you have set up will be shown alphabetically in this section and to the right of each one of them you’ll see a mini "Catch-all" icon. Clicking it once will activate this option, clicking it again will disable it. As you can have only one such catch-all mailbox per domain, our system will notify you if you’ve already got a different mailbox with this feature activated or if you’ve got active email forwarding.
Catch-all Emails in Semi-dedicated Servers
A catch-all address can be configured with a few clicks in case you’ve got a semi-dedicated server with us. The hosting account will be managed through our custom Hepsia Control Panel and you will be able to set up mailboxes under any domain name registered there. To enable the catch-all feature for a specific mailbox, you will have to click on the logo with the exact same name, which will be to the right of each mailbox. Disabling this feature can be accomplished in the very same manner and will not take more than a click either. If the catch-all feature has already been activated for a specific domain, you’ll receive a notification. The same goes if the mailbox that you wish to be a catch-all one has email forwarding activated, as our system will never disable or modify anything automatically.
