A catch-all functionality that is activated for a certain email mailbox will allow you to receive emails that are sent to email addresses that do not actually exist. Otherwise stated, if you remove an email address and someone still sends an email to it, or to any misspelled email address under the very same domain, you will get the email in the catch-all mailbox. Using this feature means that you will no longer miss an email for any reason, which could be essential in case you are running some business, for instance. Since you may start receiving unsolicited messages, you can combine the catch-all functionality with email filters so as to get only authentic email messages in your inbox. Only one mailbox per domain can be a catch-all one and email forwarding cannot be activated for a catch-all mailbox.

Catch-all Emails in Shared Website Hosting

If you host a domain on our cloud hosting platform and you’ve got a shared website hosting account, you will be able to enable the catch-all feature for any email mailbox that you create under the domain. The Email Manager section of the Hepsia Control Panel offers quite a few functions, but it’s really simple to work with, so setting up a catch-all mailbox takes only one single click. All the email addresses that you’ve set up will be enumerated in this section in alphabetical order and you’ll only need to click on the "Catch-all" button pertaining to the concrete email address. Our system will alert you if there is already another catch-all mailbox activated for that domain name or if the one that you would like to be a catch-all mailbox has email forwarding enabled, so you can either deactivate the latter feature or pick a different mailbox. Disabling the catch-all option is just as easy and takes yet another click on the exact same button.

Catch-all Emails in Semi-dedicated Servers

The custom Hepsia Control Panel that comes with every semi-dedicated server package that we are offering will allow you to set up a catch-all email mailbox without any difficulty even if you do not have much email/web hosting experience. All you need to do to accomplish that is click the catch-all icon, which will be to the right of each mailbox that you’ve set up using your domain names in the Control Panel’s Email Manager section. Since you can have only one single mailbox with this feature per domain name, our system will warn you if you’ve already configured another catch-all mailbox or if the one that you want to use has email forwarding activated. If you reach the decision that you do not need the feature anymore, you can deactivate it by clicking once again on the exact same icon. The Email Manager will also permit you to see your catch-all mailboxes at a glance.
