A catch-all functionality that is enabled for a certain e-mailbox will permit you to receive email messages that are sent to addresses that do not actually exist. Otherwise said, if you remove an email address and somebody still sends an email message to it, or to any miswritten address under the exact same domain name, 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 essential in case you are running some company, for instance. Since you may start receiving unsolicited bulk emails, you can use the catch-all option with anti-spam filtering software in order to receive only legitimate email messages in your inbox. Just one single 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 Cloud Website Hosting
Setting up a catch-all mailbox will be stunningly easy if you’ve got a Linux cloud website hosting package with us. You can enable this feature through our advanced, yet simple-to-work-with Email Manager tool, which is included in the Hepsia hosting Control Panel, via which you’ll manage your shared hosting account. You’ll find all the mailboxes that you’ve created enumerated alphabetically and on the right-hand side of each one there will be a small "Catch-all" icon, which will quickly reveal to you whether a specific mailbox stores all the email messages for a certain domain name or not. With one mouse click on the icon you can activate or deactivate this option whenever you want. In case there is enabled email forwarding or if a different mailbox has already been set up as a catch-all one for a particular domain, you will get a warning notice from our system. The latter won’t deactivate/replace anything automatically or without your approval.
Catch-all Emails in Semi-dedicated Hosting
A catch-all address can be set up with a couple of clicks of the mouse in case you have a Linux semi-dedicated package with us. The semi-dedicated account will be administered via our custom-built Hepsia Control Panel and you’ll be able to set up mailboxes under any domain hosted here. To enable the catch-all option for a mailbox, you will need to click the icon with the same name, which will be to the right of each email address. Disabling this option can be done in the exact same manner and will not take more than a click either. In case the catch-all feature has already been enabled for a certain domain name, you’ll receive a warning note. The same is valid if the mailbox that you’d like to be a catch-all one has email forwarding enabled, as our system will never edit or disable anything automatically.
