A catch-all functionality that is enabled for a certain mailbox will allow you to receive emails that are sent to email addresses that do not really exist. To state it differently, if you disable an email address and someone still sends an email message to it, or to any misspelled email address under the exact same domain name, you will receive the email in the catch-all mailbox. Using this feature implies 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 spam email messages, you can combine the catch-all functionality with anti-spam filters so as to receive only authentic messages in your inbox. Just 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 Semi-dedicated Servers

The catch-all option can be enabled without any effort in case you’ve got a semi-dedicated server plan with us. All the email addresses that you’ve created with the domain names hosted in the account will be shown in the Hepsia Control Panel’s Email Manager section and you will find a small button handily situated directly next to each one of them. With only a single mouse click, you can enable or disable the catch-all option for any mailbox of your liking as long as there isn't another mailbox under that same domain name with the option already activated and there isn't enabled email forwarding. Alternatively, you can right-click on a mailbox and activate this option using the contextual menu that will appear. If any of the conditions for configuring a catch-all mailbox is not met, our system will let you know, but will not replace or disable anything automatically.
