The term email forwarding refers to a message being forwarded from a receiving address to a third-party address which isn't mentioned as a recipient. For instance, a customer sends out an email from their personal mailbox to support@domain.com and as much as they're concerned, it is the single recipient. If there is an active forwarding, the message may be sent to owner@domain.com, for instance, although the customer never meant the message to be sent there and might not be aware about the presence of this mail box. There are several purposes for using such forwarding. For example, if you've many email addresses you are able to forward all of them to a single mail box, which will make monitoring email messages less difficult and will allow you to collect emails and respond promptly. The function could also be used in case a number of people should get a copy of an e mail message sent to a general mail box.

E-mail Forwarding in Hosting

If you have a hosting package with us and you create an e-mail address inside your account, you are able to forward it with only a couple of clicks to another e-mail address of your choosing. The feature can be enabled when you make a brand new mailbox or at any time afterwards and disabled just as easily in case you change your mind. This is done from the Hepsia Hosting Control Panel where you can control your account. Additionally, you will have the option to decide whether a duplicate of the incoming emails will stay on our servers or not. The advantage of this option is basically that you will always have a copy on your server if anything happens with the other mailbox or maybe if it's not active for reasons unknown at the time an e-mail message is forwarded. If the option is not enabled, an email will be received, forwarded and deleted from our system even if the remote email is functioning or not, so it might be a good idea for it to be enabled just to be prepared.

E-mail Forwarding in Semi-dedicated Hosting

With a semi-dedicated server plan from our company, it will take only a few clicks to forward any emails managed in the account to a third-party email address. It is possible to get this done through the feature-rich Email Manager section of the Hepsia Hosting Control Panel and throughout the process you could also decide if a backup of your email messages should be kept on our servers or not. The last feature is optional, but rather valuable because you will get a copy of your incoming e-mails, so regardless of whether something happens with the other mailbox, you won't lose any data. You are able to activate or disable the forwarding for just about any email address at any moment and forward the emails to a number of email addresses if you want. You will also be able to check out a list of all of the mailboxes that are forwarded and where the e-mails are being forwarded to.
