A catch-all feature that is enabled for a given email mailbox will permit you to receive email messages that are sent to email addresses that do not really exist. To put it differently, if you delete an email address and someone still sends an email message to it, or to any misspelled email address under the same domain, you will receive the email in the catch-all mailbox. Using this feature implies that you will no longer miss an email for any reason, which could be crucial if you are running some business, for example. Since you may begin receiving junk emails, you can combine the catch-all option with anti-spam filters so as to get only real email messages in your inbox. Just one single mailbox per domain can be a catch-all one and email forwarding cannot be enabled for a catch-all mailbox.
Catch-all Emails in Cloud Web Hosting
If you have a Linux cloud web hosting with our company and you would like to enable the catch-all functionality for a specific e-mailbox that you’ve got in your account, it’ll take literally just a single mouse click in the Email Manager section of your Hepsia hosting Control Panel to do this. A catch-all button is available to the right of each email address that you have created under any domain name hosted in the account. You can select one address per domain by clicking on the respective button. This will activate the feature instantaneously, so all emails sent to mistyped email addresses will be re-sent there. Clicking the button once again will deactivate the catch-all feature. If you’ve got enabled email forwarding, our system will display a cautionary notice and you won’t be able to activate the catch-all feature till you delete the forwarding or you can simply choose a different mailbox to be the catch-all one.
Catch-all Emails in Semi-dedicated Hosting
The in-house created Hepsia hosting Control Panel that comes with each and every semi-dedicated server plan that we offer will permit you to create a catch-all email mailbox with ease even if you don’t have much web/email hosting experience. All you have to do to achieve that is click on the catch-all icon, which will be to the right of each email address that you have created with your domains in the Control Panel’s Email Manager section. As you can have just one mailbox with this feature per domain name, our system will let you know if you’ve already configured another catch-all mailbox or if the one that you wish to use has email forwarding activated. In case you decide that you do not need this feature anymore, you can turn it off by clicking again on the exact same icon. The Email Manager will also allow you to view your catch-all mailboxes at a glance.
