A catch-all functionality that is enabled for a particular e-mailbox will permit you to receive email messages that are sent to addresses that do not actually exist. To put it differently, if you delete an email address and somebody still sends an email to it, or to any mistyped email address under the same domain name, you will get the message in the catch-all mailbox. Using this functionality means that you will no longer miss an email for any reason whatsoever, which could be vital if you are running some business, for instance. Since you may begin receiving junk emails, you can combine the catch-all functionality with anti-spam filters in order to get only authentic email messages in your inbox. Just one 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 Web Hosting
Configuring a catch-all mailbox will be incredibly easy if you have a Linux shared web hosting package with us. You can enable this option through our advanced, albeit simple-to-use Email Manager tool, which is an essential part of the Hepsia hosting Control Panel, via which you will administer your hosting account. You’ll find all the email addresses that you’ve set up listed alphabetically and to the right of each one there will be a small-size "Catch-all" icon, which will instantaneously let you know whether a certain mailbox receives all the messages pertaining to a certain domain name or not. With one single click on the icon you can activate or deactivate this option at any moment. In case there’s active email forwarding or if another mailbox has already been configured as a catch-all one for a specific domain, you’ll get a warning text message from our system. The latter will not disable/replace anything automatically and without your approval.
Catch-all Emails in Semi-dedicated Hosting
A catch-all address can be set up with several clicks in case you’ve got a Linux semi-dedicated hosting package with our company. The semi-dedicated hosting account will be managed via our custom Hepsia hosting Control Panel and you’ll be able to create mailboxes using any domain name registered here. To activate the catch-all functionality for a specific mailbox, you will have to click the logo with the same name, which will be to the right of each mailbox. Disabling the feature can be accomplished in the exact same fashion and will not take more than a click either. In case the catch-all feature has already been enabled for a given domain name, you’ll get a warning message. The same goes if the mailbox that you would like to be a catch-all one has email forwarding activated, as our system will never change or deactivate anything automatically.
