A catch-all functionality that is enabled for a specific e-mailbox will allow you to receive email messages that are sent to email addresses that do not actually exist. To put it differently, if you remove an email address and somebody still sends a message to it, or to any miswritten email address under the very same domain, you’ll receive the message in the catch-all mailbox. Using this functionality implies that you won’t miss an email for any reason, which could be essential if you are running a company, for example. Since you may begin receiving junk email messages, you can combine the catch-all functionality with email filters so as to get 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 enabled for a catch-all mailbox.

Catch-all Emails in Cloud Hosting

If you have a Linux cloud hosting with us and you’d like to enable the catch-all functionality for a given mailbox that you have in the hosting account, it will take literally only a single click of the mouse in the Email Manager section of your Hepsia hosting Control Panel to accomplish this. 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 the account. You can choose one single address per domain by clicking the respective button. This will activate the feature immediately, so all messages sent to miswritten addresses will be received there. Clicking on the button once more will turn off the catch-all feature. In case you’ve got active email forwarding, our system will exhibit a cautionary message and you will not be able to enable the catch-all feature till you disable the forwarding or you can simply select a different mailbox to be the catch-all one.

Catch-all Emails in Semi-dedicated Hosting

The catch-all feature can be enabled without any effort if you have a semi-dedicated server plan with our company. All the email addresses that you’ve created using the domain names hosted in the semi-dedicated account will be shown in the Email Manager section of your Hepsia Control Panel and you will notice a mini logo conveniently located directly next to each one of them. With only one mouse click, you can enable or disable the catch-all option for any mailbox of your preference on the condition that there isn't another mailbox under that same domain with this option already activated and there isn't enabled email forwarding. Instead, you can right-click on an email address and activate the feature using the menu that will surface. If any of the preconditions for configuring a catch-all mailbox is not matched, our system will inform you, but will not replace or deactivate anything automatically.
