A catch-all functionality that is activated for a given mailbox will allow you to receive emails that are sent to email addresses that do not actually exist. Otherwise stated, if you delete an email address and somebody still sends a message to it, or to any mistyped email address under the exact same domain, you’ll receive the email in the catch-all mailbox. Using this functionality means that you won’t miss an email for any reason whatsoever, which could be essential if you run a company, for instance. Since you may begin receiving junk emails, you can combine the catch-all feature with anti-spam filters in order to get only authentic messages in your inbox. Only one single mailbox per domain can be a catch-all one and email forwarding cannot be enabled for a catch-all mailbox.

Catch-all Emails in Shared Hosting

In case you’ve got a Linux shared hosting with our company and you wish to enable the catch-all feature for a specific mailbox that you’ve got in your hosting account, it’ll take literally just a click in the Email Manager section of your Hepsia hosting Control Panel to achieve that. A catch-all button is available on the right side of each and every email address that you have set up under any domain name hosted in your account. You can pick one single address per domain by clicking the corresponding button. This will enable the feature momentarily, so all email messages sent to miswritten addresses will be delivered there. Clicking on the button for a second time will disable the catch-all feature. If you’ve got active email forwarding, our system will show a warning note and you will not be able to enable the catch-all feature till you disable the forwarding or you can simply choose some other mailbox to be the catch-all one.

Catch-all Emails in Semi-dedicated Servers

The catch-all functionality can be enabled without any effort if you’ve got a semi-dedicated server plan with us. All the email addresses that you have set up with the domain names hosted in the account will be shown in the Email Manager section of your Hepsia hosting Control Panel and you will notice a mini button conveniently located directly next to each of them. With only one click of the mouse, you can activate or deactivate the catch-all option for any mailbox of your desire as long as there isn't another mailbox under that same domain name with the option already enabled and there isn't activated email forwarding. Alternatively, you can right-click on a mailbox and activate the feature using the context menu that will show up. If any of the conditions for setting up a catch-all mailbox is not matched, our system will notify you, but will not replace or disable anything automatically.
