A catch-all functionality that is activated for a certain e-mailbox will permit you to receive email messages that are sent to email addresses that do not actually exist. Otherwise put, if you delete an email address and somebody still sends an email to it, or to any misspelled email address under the exact same domain, you will receive the email in the catch-all mailbox. Using this functionality means that you won’t miss an email for any reason, which could be essential if you run a business, for instance. Since you may start receiving unsolicited bulk email messages, you can use the catch-all option with email filters so as to receive only legitimate email messages in your inbox. Just one single mailbox per domain name can be a catch-all one and email forwarding cannot be set up for a catch-all mailbox.
Catch-all Emails in Shared Hosting
You will be able to configure a catch-all e-mailbox without any effort if you have a shared hosting account with our company. The Email Manager tool in our custom-created Hepsia Control Panel is full-featured, yet extremely simple to use, and it will enable you to enable various features, including the catch-all one, with no more than several clicks. All the mailboxes that you have will be listed in alphabetical order in this section and to the right of each of them you’ll find a small-size "Catch-all" logo. Clicking it once will enable this feature, clicking it for a second time will deactivate it. As you can have just one such mailbox per domain name, our system will notify you if you already have another mailbox with this feature activated or if you have active email forwarding.
Catch-all Emails in Semi-dedicated Servers
The catch-all functionality can be enabled without any effort in case you’ve got a semi-dedicated server plan with our company. All the email addresses that you have created with the domain names hosted in your semi-dedicated server account will be listed in the Hepsia Control Panel’s Email Manager section and you’ll see a mini icon handily located right next to each one of them. With only a click of the mouse, you can activate or deactivate the catch-all option for any mailbox of your preference as long as there isn't another mailbox under the same domain name with this option already activated and there isn't active email forwarding. Instead, you can right-click on a mailbox and activate this feature using the menu that will pop up. In case any of the requirements for creating a catch-all mailbox is not answered, our system will let you know, but will not replace or disable anything automatically.
