The term e-mail forwarding refers to an email being forwarded from a receiving address towards a third-party address that is not mentioned as a recipient. For instance, a client sends an email from their private mailbox to support@domain.com and as much as they are involved, this is the single recipient. If there is an active forwarding, the email can be forwarded to owner@domain.com, for instance, even though the customer in no way intended the email to be sent there and may not be aware of the existence of this mail box. There are various purposes for using such forwarding. For example, if you have numerous e-mail addresses you are able to forward each of them to a one email address, which can make monitoring e-mails simpler and allows you to collect messages and respond to them timely. The function could also be used if a number of people should get a copy of an e mail message sent to a general mail box.
E-mail Forwarding in Shared Website Hosting
In case you have a shared website hosting package with us and you set up email addresses in your account, you are able to forward it with only a couple of mouse clicks to another address of your choice. The feature can be enabled when you set up a new mailbox or whenever you want later and disabled just as easily in case you change your mind. This can be done from the Hepsia Hosting Control Panel where you will control your account. You'll have the option to choose whether a backup of the incoming messages will remain on our servers or not. The main benefit of this option is basically that you will always have a backup on your server if something occurs with the other mailbox or if perhaps it isn't active for reasons unknown at the time an e-mail is forwarded. When the option is not active, a message will be received, forwarded and erased from our servers even if the remote email address is functioning or not, so it generally is a wise decision to have it enabled just to be on the safe side.
E-mail Forwarding in Semi-dedicated Servers
If you have a semi-dedicated server from us, it will take you a few mouse clicks inside the Email Manager area of your Hepsia Hosting Control Panel to forward the e-mails created on our end to a third-party e-mail address. Inside the very same area you will also have the ability to see how many of your mailboxes are forwarded and exactly where the inbound messages are going. It is possible to enable or disable a forwarding account at any moment and throughout the process you could also decide whether a backup copy of the e-mails needs to be maintained in our system or not. Even though this feature isn't a must have, it is valuable as you will get a backup of the emails on our end in case that something happens with the third-party email address. Even when they have a temporary problem, you risk losing emails as the moment our server receives and forwards a message, absolutely nothing will be maintained on our end unless you selected a copy to be kept.
