A catch-all functionality that is enabled for a particular email mailbox will allow you to receive emails that are sent to addresses that do not actually exist. To put it differently, if you delete an email address and someone still sends a message to it, or to any mistyped email address under the same domain name, you will receive the email in the catch-all mailbox. Using this feature means that you won’t miss an email for any reason, which could be vital in case you run some business, for example. Since you may begin receiving unsolicited messages, you can use the catch-all functionality with anti-spam filters so as to get only authentic emails in your inbox. Only one single 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 Website Hosting
You’ll be able to create a catch-all mailbox without difficulty in case you’ve got a website hosting account with us. The Email Manager tool in our in-house developed Hepsia hosting Control Panel is full-featured, yet remarkably easy to use, and it will enable you to activate different options, including the catch-all one, with no more than a few mouse clicks. All the email addresses that you have created will be shown alphabetically in this section and on the right-hand side of each one you’ll find a small-size "Catch-all" symbol. Clicking it once will enable this option, clicking it once more will deactivate it. As you can have only one such mailbox per domain name, our system will notify you if you already have a different mailbox with this option activated or if you’ve got activated email forwarding.
Catch-all Emails in Semi-dedicated Hosting
A catch-all email address can be created with several mouse clicks in case you’ve got a Linux semi-dedicated package with our company. The hosting account will be managed via our in-house developed Hepsia Control Panel and you will be able to create email addresses under any domain name registered here. To enable the catch-all feature for a given mailbox, you’ll need to click on the icon with the exact same name, which will be on the right side of each mailbox. Disabling this functionality can be achieved in the very same fashion and will not take more than a click either. In case the catch-all feature has already been activated for a particular domain, you’ll get a warning notice. The same is valid if the mailbox that you’d like to be a catch-all one has email forwarding enabled, as our system will never disable or change anything automatically.
