A catch-all feature that is activated for a specific e-mailbox will permit you to receive emails that are sent to email addresses that do not actually exist. In other words, if you remove an email address and someone still sends an email 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 functionality means that you will no longer miss an email for any reason whatsoever, which could be essential in case you run some company, for instance. Since you may begin receiving spam messages, you can use the catch-all option with anti-spam filtering software in order to get only legitimate emails in your inbox. Just one mailbox per domain can be a catch-all one and email forwarding cannot be enabled for a catch-all mailbox.

Catch-all Emails in Hosting

If you’ve got a Linux hosting with our company and you would like to activate the catch-all option for a given mailbox that you’ve got in your hosting account, it’ll take literally just one single click of the mouse in the Email Manager section of your Hepsia Control Panel to achieve this. A catch-all button is available next to each email address that you have set up under any domain registered in the account. You can choose one single email address per domain by clicking on the corresponding button. This will activate the feature immediately, so all emails sent to misspelled addresses will be re-sent there. Clicking the button once again will disable the catch-all feature. If you’ve got activated email forwarding, our system will show a warning note and you will not be able to activate the catch-all feature until you deactivate the forwarding or you can simply choose a different mailbox to be the catch-all one.

Catch-all Emails in Semi-dedicated Servers

The catch-all option can be enabled without effort if you have a semi-dedicated server account with our company. All the email addresses that you have set up using the domains hosted in your semi-dedicated server account will be enumerated in the Hepsia hosting Control Panel’s Email Manager section and you will find a tiny button conveniently located right next to each one. With only a single mouse click, you can enable or disable the catch-all option for any mailbox of your preference provided that there isn't another mailbox under the same domain name with the option already enabled and there isn't active email forwarding. Instead, you can right-click on a mailbox and enable this feature through the contextual menu that will come into view. In case any of the requirements for setting up a catch-all mailbox is not fulfilled, our system will warn you, but will not replace or disable anything automatically.
