A catch-all feature that is enabled for a specific 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 someone still sends a message to it, or to any miswritten email address under the exact same domain name, you’ll get the message in the catch-all mailbox. Using this feature implies that you won’t miss an email for any reason, which could be essential if you are running a business, for instance. Since you may begin receiving spam messages, you can use the catch-all feature with anti-spam filtering software so as to get only legitimate email messages in your inbox. Only one mailbox per domain name can be a catch-all one and email forwarding cannot be activated for a catch-all mailbox.
Catch-all Emails in Hosting
In case you’ve got a Linux hosting plan with our company and you’d like to activate the catch-all functionality for a given e-mailbox that you have in your hosting account, it will take literally just a mouse click in the Email Manager section of your Hepsia hosting Control Panel to accomplish that. A catch-all button is available next to each email address that you have created under any domain name hosted in your account. You can choose one email address per domain name by clicking on the respective button. This will enable the feature straight away, so all emails sent to misspelled email addresses will be received there. Clicking the button once again will deactivate the catch-all feature. If you’ve got activated email forwarding, our system will show a cautionary notice and you won’t be able to activate the catch-all feature till you remove the forwarding or you can simply select a different mailbox to be the catch-all one.
Catch-all Emails in Semi-dedicated Servers
You will be able to set up a catch-all address with no more than a click if you have a Linux semi-dedicated hosting plan with us and your email messages are handled by our cloud hosting platform. All the addresses that you set up with any domain hosted in your semi-dedicated account will be displayed in the Email Manager section of your Hepsia hosting Control Panel. Each of them will have a small-size "Catch-all" icon on its right-hand side, so all it will take to activate this functionality will be to click that icon. In the very same manner you’ll be able to disable the feature, if you do not need it anymore. Our system will let you know in case you are attempting to activate a 2nd catch-all mailbox for a given domain name or in case there is active email forwarding, but it will never change or disable anything automatically and without your approval.
