The term e-mail forwarding describes an e-mail message being forwarded from a receiving address to a third-party address that isn't mentioned as a receiver. For instance, a client sends out an e-mail from their personal mail box to support@domain.com and as much as they are involved, it is the single recipient. If there's an active forwarding, the message can be sent to owner@domain.com, for example, even though the customer in no way meant the e-mail to be sent there and may not be aware about the presence of this mail box. There are different reasons for using such forwarding. For example, if you have various emails it is possible to forward all of them to a sole mailbox, which will make keeping track of emails less complicated and will allow you to collect messages and respond in a timely manner. The feature may also be used if a number of individuals should get a copy of an email message sent to a general mail box.

E-mail Forwarding in Shared Hosting

It is really simple to set up forwarding for just about any email created inside a shared hosting account with our company. This can be done either when you set up a brand new e-mail address using your Hepsia Hosting Control Panel, or at any moment in the future since the forwarding may be enabled and disabled for any current mailbox with a couple of mouse clicks. You can also decide if a backup copy of the inbound emails will be maintained on our servers, which is a pretty handy feature. This can be a fail-safe if the remote mailbox is not accessible for some cause, not mentioning that you'll always have a copy of all of the emails. When this option is not activated for a specific email address on our end, an incoming message will be received and sent forward, so no record of it will remain on our server. If the remote mailbox is inaccessible temporarily, you will lose this email.

E-mail Forwarding in Semi-dedicated Hosting

If you have a semi-dedicated server from us, you'll need a couple of mouse clicks inside the Email Manager part of your Hepsia Hosting Control Panel to forward the email addresses set up on our server to a third-party address. Inside the same area you will additionally be able to see how many of your email addresses are forwarded and where the incoming emails are going. You're able to activate or deactivate a forwarding account whenever you want and throughout the process you may as well choose whether a backup of the e-mails needs to be maintained on our servers or not. Even though this option is not a must have, it is very helpful because you will have a backup of the emails on our end in case that anything occurs with the third-party email address. Even if they've got a short-term problem, you run the risk of losing e-mails as the moment our server receives and forwards an email, absolutely nothing will be kept on our end unless you selected a backup to be saved.
