Learn about exactly what a catch-all e-mail account really is, the way it operates and the way to create one.
A catch-all feature that is activated for a given email mailbox will permit you to receive email messages that are sent to addresses that do not actually exist. Otherwise stated, if you disable an email address and somebody still sends an email to it, or to any miswritten address under the exact same domain, you’ll receive the message in the catch-all mailbox. Using this feature implies that you will no longer miss an email for any reason whatsoever, which could be crucial if you run a business, for example. Since you may start receiving unsolicited email messages, you can use the catch-all functionality with anti-spam filtering software in order to receive only authentic messages 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 Cloud Web Hosting
If you have a Linux cloud web hosting service
with our company and you want to enable the catch-all option for a given email mailbox that you have in your account, it’ll take literally just one single click in the Email Manager section of your Hepsia hosting Control Panel to achieve that. A catch-all button is available to the right of each and every email address that you have set up under any domain hosted in the account. You can select one single address per domain name by clicking the respective button. This will activate the feature immediately, so all email messages sent to miswritten addresses will be delivered there. Clicking the button once more will disable the catch-all feature. In case you’ve got active email forwarding, our system will show a warning notification and you will not be able to activate the catch-all feature until you remove the forwarding or you can simply pick another mailbox to be the catch-all one.
Catch-all Emails in Semi-dedicated Servers
You’ll be able to configure a catch-all email address with no more than one click in case you have a Linux semi-dedicated hosting service
with our company and your email messages are handled by our cloud web hosting platform. All the addresses that you create using any domain hosted in your semi-dedicated hosting account will be displayed in the Email Manager section of your Hepsia hosting Control Panel. Each of them will have a tiny "Catch-all" icon next to it, so all it will take to activate this option will be to click on that icon. In the exact same way you will be able to deactivate the feature, if you no longer need it. Our system will let you know if you’re trying to activate a 2nd catch-all address for a particular domain name or in case there’s enabled email forwarding, but it’ll never disable or alter any feature automatically or without your permission.
