Discover precisely what a catch-all e-mail account is really, how it works and how to create one.
A catch-all functionality that is activated for a given email mailbox will allow you to receive emails that are sent to addresses that do not really exist. To put it differently, if you deactivate an email address and someone still sends an email to it, or to any miswritten email address under the exact 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 start receiving unsolicited email messages, you can combine the catch-all option with email filters in order to receive only real emails in your inbox. Just one mailbox per domain name can be a catch-all one and email forwarding cannot be activated for a catch-all mailbox.
Catch-all Emails in Cloud Web Hosting
In case you have a Linux cloud web hosting
with our company and you would like to activate the catch-all functionality for a particular email mailbox that you’ve got in your account, it’ll take literally only one single mouse click in the Email Manager section of your Hepsia hosting Control Panel to achieve that. A catch-all button is available next to each and every email address that you have created under any domain name registered in the account. You can select one single email address per domain name by clicking on the respective button. This will activate the feature instantly, so all messages sent to mistyped addresses will be received there. Clicking on the button for a second time will turn off the catch-all feature. In case you’ve got enabled email forwarding, our system will display a warning message and you will not be able to activate the catch-all feature unless you delete the forwarding or you can simply choose another mailbox to be the catch-all one.
Catch-all Emails in Semi-dedicated Hosting
You will be able to configure a catch-all address with no more than a click in case you’ve got a Linux semi-dedicated hosting package
with our company and your email messages are handled by our cloud web hosting platform. All the addresses that you set up using any domain hosted in the semi-dedicated account will be shown in the Hepsia hosting Control Panel’s Email Manager section. Each of them will have a mini "Catch-all" icon next to it, so all it will take to activate this feature will be to click on that icon. In the same manner you will be able to turn off the feature, in case you don’t need it any longer. Our system will inform you if you’re trying to activate a 2nd catch-all address for a specific domain name or in case there’s active email forwarding, but it will never disable or alter any feature automatically and without your permission.
