A catch-all feature that is activated for a given email mailbox will permit you to receive emails that are sent to addresses that do not really exist. Otherwise put, if you deactivate an email address and somebody still sends an email message to it, or to any miswritten email address under the same domain, you will get 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 run some company, for instance. Since you may begin receiving unsolicited emails, you can use the catch-all option with anti-spam filtering software so as to get only authentic emails in your inbox. Only 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 Web Hosting

In case you’ve got a Linux cloud web hosting service with us and you want to activate the catch-all option for a particular email mailbox that you’ve got in your account, it will take literally only one mouse click in the Email Manager section of your Hepsia Control Panel to achieve this. A catch-all button is available on the right side of each email address that you have created under any domain name hosted in the account. You can choose one single email address per domain by clicking the respective button. This will enable the feature instantaneously, so all emails sent to mistyped addresses will be delivered there. Clicking on the button once again will deactivate the catch-all feature. If you have active email forwarding, our system will show a cautionary notice and you won’t be able to activate the catch-all feature unless you deactivate the forwarding or you can simply select another mailbox to be the catch-all one.

Catch-all Emails in Semi-dedicated Servers

A catch-all address can be created with a couple of clicks in case you’ve got a semi-dedicated server with us. The hosting account will be administered through our custom-built Hepsia hosting Control Panel and you will be able to set up mailboxes with any domain name hosted here. To activate the catch-all functionality for a mailbox, you’ll need to click on the logo with the exact same name, which will be to the right of each email address. Disabling this feature can be done in the very same fashion and will not require more than a click either. In case the catch-all functionality has already been activated for a certain domain, you will get a warning message. The same goes if the mailbox that you’d like to be a catch-all one has email forwarding enabled, as our system will never deactivate or alter any feature automatically.
