A catch-all functionality that is activated for a specific email mailbox will allow you to receive email messages that are sent to addresses that do not really exist. Otherwise put, if you remove an email address and someone still sends a message to it, or to any mistyped address under the very same domain name, you will get the message in the catch-all mailbox. Using this functionality implies that you will no longer miss an email for any reason, which could be vital in case you run a business, for example. Since you may begin receiving spam email messages, you can combine the catch-all feature with anti-spam filtering software so as to receive only real email messages in your inbox. Just one 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 Web Hosting
In case you have a Linux cloud web hosting package with our company and you wish to activate the catch-all functionality for a given mailbox that you’ve got in the web hosting account, it’ll take literally just a click of the mouse in the Email Manager section of your Hepsia hosting Control Panel to accomplish that. A catch-all button is available next to each email address that you have created under any domain name registered in your account. You can select one email address per domain by clicking on the respective button. This will activate the feature straight away, so all email messages sent to mistyped email addresses will be delivered there. Clicking on the button once again will deactivate the catch-all feature. If you have active email forwarding, our system will display a warning note and you will not be able to enable the catch-all feature until you deactivate the forwarding or you can simply select some other mailbox to be the catch-all one.
Catch-all Emails in Semi-dedicated Hosting
A catch-all address can be configured with a couple of mouse clicks if you’ve got a Linux semi-dedicated package with our company. The semi-dedicated account will be administered via our custom Hepsia Control Panel and you will be able to create email addresses with any domain name registered here. To enable the catch-all option for a particular mailbox, you’ll need to click the icon with the same name, which will be on the right-hand side of each email address. Deactivating this functionality can be achieved in the same manner and will not require more than a click either. If the catch-all option has already been enabled for a particular domain, you will get a warning text message. The same goes if the mailbox that you’d like to be a catch-all one has email forwarding enabled, as our system will never modify or disable anything automatically.
