A catch-all functionality that is enabled for a given email mailbox will permit you to receive emails that are sent to addresses that do not really exist. In other words, if you remove an email address and someone still sends a message to it, or to any misspelled address under the same domain, you will receive the email in the catch-all mailbox. Using this feature implies that you won’t miss an email for any reason whatsoever, which could be essential in case you are running a company, for example. Since you may begin receiving unsolicited messages, you can combine the catch-all feature with anti-spam filtering software in order to get only legitimate messages in your inbox. Just one single mailbox per domain name can be a catch-all one and email forwarding cannot be set up for a catch-all mailbox.

Catch-all Emails in Web Hosting

If you have a web hosting with our company and you’d like to activate the catch-all functionality for a given email mailbox that you’ve got in your hosting account, it will take literally only a mouse click in the Email Manager section of your Hepsia Control Panel to accomplish this. A catch-all button is available to the right of each and every email address that you have set up under any domain registered in the account. You can choose one address per domain name by clicking the corresponding button. This will enable the feature instantaneously, so all messages sent to mistyped email addresses will be delivered there. Clicking on the button once more will turn off the catch-all feature. In case you’ve got activated email forwarding, our system will display a warning notification and you will not be able to enable the catch-all feature until you remove the forwarding or you can simply choose some other mailbox to be the catch-all one.

Catch-all Emails in Semi-dedicated Servers

The custom Hepsia hosting Control Panel that is included with each and every semi-dedicated server plan that we offer will allow you to create a catch-all mailbox without any effort even in case you don’t have much web/email hosting experience. All you have to do to accomplish that is click the catch-all icon, which will be on the right-hand side of each email address that you have created using your domain names in the Email Manager section of the Control Panel. As you can have just one mailbox with this feature per domain, our system will warn you if you’ve already set up a different catch-all mailbox or if the one that you want to use has email forwarding enabled. In case you reach the decision that you don’t need the feature anymore, you can disable it by clicking again on the exact same icon. The Email Manager section will also allow you to see your catch-all mailboxes at a glance.
