A catch-all feature that is enabled for a specific mailbox will allow you to receive email messages that are sent to addresses that do not really exist. To put it differently, if you deactivate an email address and somebody still sends an email message to it, or to any miswritten email address under the same domain, you’ll receive the message in the catch-all mailbox. Using this feature implies that you will no longer miss an email for any reason, which could be essential if you are running some business, for instance. Since you may start receiving unsolicited email messages, you can combine the catch-all option with anti-spam filtering software in order to receive only authentic emails in your inbox. Only 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 Hosting

If you host a domain name on our cloud platform and you’ve got a cloud hosting account, you’ll be able to activate the catch-all feature for any email mailbox that you set up under the domain name. The Email Manager section of the Hepsia Control Panel includes quite a lot of features, but it’s really intuitive, so setting up a catch-all mailbox takes just one click of the mouse. All the email addresses that you have will be shown in this section alphabetically and you’ll simply have to click the "Catch-all" button for the respective address. Our system will inform you if there’s already another catch-all mailbox enabled for that domain name or if the one that you’d like to be a catch-all mailbox has email forwarding activated, so you can either deactivate the latter feature or choose some other mailbox. Disabling the catch-all option is just as simple and requires yet another mouse click on the exact same button.

Catch-all Emails in Semi-dedicated Servers

You will be able to create a catch-all email address with no more than a click if you’ve got a Linux semi-dedicated server with us and your emails are handled by our cloud platform. All the addresses that you create with any domain hosted in the semi-dedicated hosting account will be listed in the Hepsia hosting Control Panel’s Email Manager section. Each of them will have a mini "Catch-all" icon on its right-hand side, so all it will take to activate this functionality will be to click on that icon. In the same manner you’ll be able to remove the feature, in case you don’t need it any longer. Our system will inform you in case you are attempting to enable a 2nd catch-all email address for a certain domain or in case there’s activated email forwarding, but it will never disable or modify anything automatically and without your permission.
