A catch-all feature that is enabled for a particular email mailbox will allow you to receive email messages that are sent to email addresses that do not actually exist. Otherwise stated, if you disable an email address and someone still sends a message to it, or to any misspelled address under the 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 vital in case you run a business, for instance. Since you may start receiving junk messages, you can combine the catch-all functionality with email filters so as to get only legitimate messages in your inbox. Just one single mailbox per domain can be a catch-all one and email forwarding cannot be set up for a catch-all mailbox.

Catch-all Emails in Cloud Hosting

If you host a domain name on our cloud platform and you have a cloud hosting account, you’ll be able to enable the catch-all functionality for any email mailbox that you create under the domain. The Email Manager section of the Hepsia Control Panel comes with quite a lot of features, but it is really intuitive, so setting up a catch-all mailbox requires only a click. All the email addresses that you’ve got will be shown in this section alphabetically and you’ll only need to click on the "Catch-all" button for the concrete address. Our system will warn you if there is already another catch-all mailbox enabled for that domain name or if the one that you want to be a catch-all mailbox has email forwarding enabled, so you can either turn off the latter feature or select another mailbox. Deactivating the catch-all option is just as easy and takes yet another mouse click on the exact same button.

Catch-all Emails in Semi-dedicated Hosting

A catch-all address can be created with a couple of clicks in case you have a Linux semi-dedicated hosting package with our company. The semi-dedicated hosting account will be administered via our custom Hepsia Control Panel and you will be able to create mailboxes under any domain name hosted here. To activate the catch-all option for a certain mailbox, you’ll need to click the symbol with the exact same name, which will be on the right-hand side of each email address. Disabling the feature can be done in the very same fashion and will not require more than a click either. If the catch-all feature has already been enabled for a specific domain name, you will receive a warning note. The same is valid if the mailbox that you want to be a catch-all one has email forwarding enabled, as our system will never modify or deactivate anything automatically.
