A catch-all feature that is enabled for a given mailbox will allow you to receive email messages that are sent to email addresses that do not actually exist. Otherwise put, if you deactivate an email address and someone still sends an email to it, or to any miswritten address under the very same domain, you’ll get the message in the catch-all mailbox. Using this functionality implies that you will no longer miss an email for any reason, which could be essential if you run a business, for example. Since you may start receiving junk email messages, you can use the catch-all functionality with anti-spam filtering software in order to get only authentic email messages in your inbox. Just 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 Web Hosting

If you have a Linux web hosting with us and you want to activate the catch-all functionality for a given mailbox that you have in the web hosting account, it will take literally just one single mouse click in the Email Manager section of your Hepsia Control Panel to achieve that. A catch-all button is available on the right-hand side of each and every email address that you have set up under any domain name registered in your account. You can pick one email address per domain by clicking the corresponding button. This will activate the feature right away, so all messages sent to mistyped addresses will be re-sent there. Clicking on the button once again will deactivate the catch-all feature. If you have activated email forwarding, our system will show a warning notice and you won’t be able to activate the catch-all feature till you delete the forwarding or you can simply select another mailbox to be the catch-all one.

Catch-all Emails in Semi-dedicated Hosting

You’ll be able to set up a catch-all address with no more than one click in case you have a Linux semi-dedicated hosting with us and your emails are handled by our cloud web hosting platform. All the mailboxes that you create with any domain name hosted in the semi-dedicated account will be shown in the Hepsia hosting Control Panel’s Email Manager section. Each of them will have a small "Catch-all" icon next to it, so all it will take to enable the feature will be to click that icon. In the same fashion you will be able to remove the feature, in case you don’t need it anymore. Our system will let you know in case you’re attempting to enable a second catch-all address for a specific domain name or in case there’s active email forwarding, but it’ll never disable or alter any feature automatically or without your permission.
