A catch-all feature that is enabled for a particular e-mailbox will permit you to receive emails that are sent to addresses that do not really exist. Otherwise said, if you deactivate an email address and someone still sends an email message to it, or to any miswritten address under the exact same domain name, you will receive the email in the catch-all mailbox. Using this functionality implies that you won’t miss an email for any reason whatsoever, which could be essential if you are running some business, for instance. Since you may begin receiving spam emails, you can combine the catch-all functionality with anti-spam filters so as to receive only real emails in your inbox. Only 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
In case you’ve got a web hosting plan with our company and you would like to activate the catch-all feature for a certain mailbox that you’ve got in the hosting account, it will take literally only one single click of the mouse in the Email Manager section of your Hepsia hosting Control Panel to accomplish that. A catch-all button is available to the right of each email address that you have created under any domain name registered in your account. You can select one single email address per domain name by clicking on the respective button. This will activate the feature straight away, so all messages sent to miswritten email addresses will be delivered there. Clicking the button again will disable the catch-all feature. In case you have activated email forwarding, our system will exhibit a warning notice and you won’t be able to activate the catch-all feature till you deactivate the forwarding or you can simply select a different mailbox to be the catch-all one.
Catch-all Emails in Semi-dedicated Servers
The catch-all functionality can be activated easily in case you’ve got a semi-dedicated server plan with our company. All the email addresses that you have created using the domains hosted in your account will be displayed in the Email Manager section of your Hepsia hosting Control Panel and you’ll see a tiny button handily located right next to each one of them. With just a single mouse click, you can enable or disable the catch-all option for any mailbox of your liking on the condition that there isn't another mailbox under the same domain with the option already activated and there isn't enabled email forwarding. Alternatively, you can right-click on a mailbox and enable the feature through the menu that will surface. In case any of the preconditions for setting up a catch-all mailbox is not fulfilled, our system will inform you, but will not replace or disable anything automatically.
