A catch-all functionality that is enabled for a particular e-mailbox will permit you to receive email messages that are sent to email addresses that do not really exist. To put it differently, if you deactivate an email address and somebody still sends an email to it, or to any miswritten address under the same domain name, you will receive the email in the catch-all mailbox. Using this functionality means that you won’t miss an email for any reason whatsoever, which could be essential if you are running some business, for example. Since you may begin receiving spam messages, you can combine the catch-all option with anti-spam filtering software so as to receive only real email messages 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 Web Hosting

Configuring a catch-all e-mailbox will be amazingly easy if you have a Linux shared web hosting package with us. You can enable this option through our advanced, albeit simple-to-work-with Email Manager tool, which is an indivisible part of the Hepsia Control Panel, via which you’ll administer your web hosting account. You will find all the mailboxes that you’ve set up listed in alphabetical order and on the right-hand side of each of them there will be a small "Catch-all" icon, which will instantly let you know if a particular mailbox receives all the emails for a given domain or not. With a single click on the icon you can activate or deactivate the feature whenever you want. In case there’s activated email forwarding or in case some other mailbox has already been configured as a catch-all one for a particular domain name, you will receive a warning notification from our system. The latter won’t replace/deactivate anything automatically and without your approval.

Catch-all Emails in Semi-dedicated Hosting

A catch-all email address can be configured with a couple of clicks in case you’ve got a semi-dedicated hosting with us. The semi-dedicated account will be administered through our custom-created Hepsia Control Panel and you will be able to create mailboxes with any domain name registered here. To enable the catch-all feature for a specific mailbox, you’ll have to click on the symbol with the exact same name, which will be on the right-hand side of each email address. Disabling this functionality can be achieved in the exact same manner and will not require more than a click either. If a catch-all mailbox has already been activated for a certain domain name, you will get a warning notification. The same is valid if the mailbox that you want to be a catch-all one has email forwarding activated, as our system will never deactivate or replace anything automatically.
