A catch-all functionality that is enabled for a particular mailbox will allow you to receive email messages that are sent to email addresses that do not really exist. In other words, if you deactivate an email address and somebody still sends an email message to it, or to any mistyped email address under the exact same domain, you’ll get 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 if you run a company, for example. Since you may begin receiving junk messages, you can combine the catch-all feature with email filters in order to receive only real messages in your inbox. Only one 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 Cloud Web Hosting
In case you’ve got a Linux cloud web hosting service with us and you want to enable the catch-all feature for a specific mailbox that you’ve got in the web hosting account, it’ll take literally just a click in the Email Manager section of your Hepsia hosting Control Panel to achieve this. A catch-all button is available next to each and every email address that you have created under any domain name hosted in your account. You can pick one address per domain name by clicking the corresponding button. This will enable the feature right away, so all messages sent to misspelled addresses will be received there. Clicking the button for a second time will turn off the catch-all feature. If you have activated email forwarding, our system will display a cautionary notice and you will not be able to enable the catch-all feature till you deactivate the forwarding or you can simply pick a different mailbox to be the catch-all one.
Catch-all Emails in Semi-dedicated Hosting
The catch-all option can be enabled easily in case you’ve got a semi-dedicated server account with us. All the email addresses that you have created with the domains hosted in your account will be listed in the Hepsia hosting Control Panel’s Email Manager section and you will see a tiny sign handily located right next to each one of them. With only one mouse click, you can activate or deactivate the catch-all option for any mailbox of your choice as long as there isn't another mailbox under that same domain name with the option already activated and there isn't activated email forwarding. Alternatively, you can right-click on an email address and enable the feature using the menu that will come into sight. In case any of the preconditions for setting up a catch-all mailbox is not matched, our system will let you know, but will not replace or deactivate anything automatically.
