A catch-all functionality that is activated for a certain email mailbox will permit you to receive email messages that are sent to addresses that do not actually exist. Otherwise stated, if you deactivate an email address and somebody still sends a message to it, or to any mistyped address under the very same domain, you’ll receive the email in the catch-all mailbox. Using this feature implies that you will no longer miss an email for any reason whatsoever, which could be crucial if you run some company, for instance. Since you may begin receiving spam, you can combine the catch-all functionality with email filters in order to get only real emails in your inbox. Only one mailbox per domain can be a catch-all one and email forwarding cannot be activated for a catch-all mailbox.
Catch-all Emails in Website Hosting
Setting up a catch-all e-mailbox will be amazingly easy if you’ve got a Linux website hosting with our company. You can activate this feature through our advanced, yet simple-to-use Email Manager tool, which is included in the Hepsia hosting Control Panel, via which you’ll administer your shared hosting account. You’ll find all the email addresses that you’ve created listed in alphabetical order and on the right side of each of them there will be a tiny "Catch-all" icon, which will instantaneously show you if a particular mailbox receives all the email messages for a given domain or not. With one mouse click on the icon you can activate or deactivate this option at any time. In case there’s enabled email forwarding or in case a different mailbox has already been configured as a catch-all one for a given domain name, you will receive a warning message from our system. The latter will not deactivate/replace anything automatically and without your approval.
Catch-all Emails in Semi-dedicated Hosting
The custom-built Hepsia Control Panel that comes with every semi-dedicated server package that we’re offering will permit you to configure a catch-all mailbox easily even in case you do not have much email/web hosting experience. All it takes to achieve that is to click the catch-all icon, which will be to the right of each mailbox that you have set up using your domains in the Control Panel’s Email Manager section. Since you can have just one single mailbox with this feature per domain, our system will warn you if you’ve already configured another catch-all mailbox or if the one that you want to use has email forwarding activated. If you reach the decision that you do not want this feature anymore, you can disable it by clicking once again on the exact same icon. The Email Manager section will also permit you to view your catch-all mailboxes at a glance.
