A catch-all functionality that is activated for a particular email mailbox will permit you to receive emails that are sent to addresses that do not actually exist. In other words, if you delete an email address and someone still sends a message to it, or to any misspelled email address under the very same domain name, you will receive the message in the catch-all mailbox. Using this feature implies that you won’t miss an email for any reason, which could be vital in case you are running a business, for example. Since you may start receiving unsolicited messages, you can use the catch-all option with anti-spam filtering software in order to get only authentic emails in your inbox. Just one mailbox per domain name can be a catch-all one and email forwarding cannot be enabled for a catch-all mailbox.
Catch-all Emails in Website Hosting
If you have a Linux website hosting package with us and you wish to enable the catch-all option for a certain mailbox that you’ve got in the account, it’ll take literally only a single click of the mouse in the Email Manager section of your Hepsia Control Panel to accomplish that. A catch-all button is available next to each email address that you have set up under any domain registered in your account. You can select one address per domain by clicking on the corresponding button. This will enable the feature straight away, so all emails sent to mistyped addresses will be received there. Clicking the button once more will deactivate the catch-all feature. If you have enabled email forwarding, our system will exhibit a cautionary notice and you will not be able to enable the catch-all feature until you delete the forwarding or you can simply choose some other mailbox to be the catch-all one.
Catch-all Emails in Semi-dedicated Hosting
The catch-all option 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 with the domain names hosted in your account will be shown in the Hepsia hosting Control Panel’s Email Manager section and you’ll see a small-size symbol handily located right next to each one of them. With just a single click of the mouse, you can enable or disable the catch-all option for any mailbox of your choosing on the condition that there isn't another mailbox under the same domain name with the option already enabled and there isn't enabled email forwarding. Instead, you can right-click on an email address and enable the feature through the contextual menu that will surface. In case any of the preconditions for configuring a catch-all mailbox is not met, our system will notify you, but will not replace or disable anything automatically.
