A catch-all functionality that is activated for a specific email mailbox will allow you to receive emails that are sent to addresses that do not actually exist. Otherwise said, if you disable an email address and someone still sends an email to it, or to any misspelled email address under the same domain, you will receive the message in the catch-all mailbox. Using this functionality implies that you won’t miss an email for any reason whatsoever, which could be vital in case you are running some business, for instance. Since you may start receiving spam email messages, you can combine the catch-all feature with anti-spam filters so as to receive only legitimate 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 Shared Website Hosting

In case you’ve got a Linux shared website hosting with us and you’d like to enable the catch-all functionality for a particular mailbox that you have in your hosting account, it’ll take literally only a click of the mouse in the Email Manager section of your Hepsia hosting Control Panel to do that. A catch-all button is available to the right of each email address that you have created under any domain name hosted in your account. You can choose one single address per domain by clicking the corresponding button. This will enable the feature instantaneously, so all emails sent to misspelled email addresses will be received there. Clicking on the button once more will turn off the catch-all feature. If you have enabled email forwarding, our system will display a cautionary notice and you will not be able to activate the catch-all feature till you disable the forwarding or you can simply select a different mailbox to be the catch-all one.

Catch-all Emails in Semi-dedicated Hosting

The catch-all feature can be enabled with ease in case you’ve got a semi-dedicated server plan with our company. All the email addresses that you’ve set up with the domains hosted in your account will be enumerated in the Email Manager section of your Hepsia hosting Control Panel and you will notice a small logo conveniently situated directly next to each one. With only one click, you can activate or deactivate the catch-all option for any mailbox of your choice on the condition that there isn't another mailbox under the same domain with the option already enabled and there isn't enabled email forwarding. Alternatively, you can right-click on a mailbox and activate this option using the menu that will appear. If any of the prerequisites for configuring a catch-all mailbox is not fulfilled, our system will inform you, but will not replace or disable anything automatically.
