The term e-mail forwarding describes an e-mail message being forwarded from a receiving address to a third-party address which is not mentioned as a receiver. For instance, a customer sends an email from their personal mailbox to support@domain.com and as much as they're concerned, it is the single receiver. If there's an active forwarding, the e-mail can be sent to owner@domain.com, for example, although the customer never meant the e-mail to be sent there and might not be aware about the presence of this mailbox. There are different purposes for making use of such forwarding. For example, if you've got many emails it is easy to forward all of them to a single email address, which can make keeping track of email messages simpler and allows you to get emails and respond quickly. The feature could also be used in case a number of individuals should get a copy of an e-mail message delivered to a standard mail box.

E-mail Forwarding in Shared Web Hosting

In case you have a shared web hosting plan with us and you set up an email address in your account, you are able to forward it with no more than a couple of mouse clicks to any other e-mail address of your preference. The feature can be enabled whenever you make a new mailbox or any time later on and disabled just as easily in case you change your mind. This is done from the Hepsia Hosting Control Panel where you can manage your account. In addition, you will have the option to choose whether a backup of the inbound messages will stay on our servers or not. The main advantage of this option is basically that you will always have a backup on your server if something happens with the other mailbox or maybe it isn't active for reasons unknown during the time an email message is forwarded. In case the feature not active, an e-mail will be received, forwarded and deleted from our servers no matter if the remote e-mail address is working or not, so it generally is a wise decision for it to be active just to be on the safe side.

E-mail Forwarding in Semi-dedicated Hosting

If you have a semi-dedicated server from us, you will need simply a few clicks inside the Email Manager section of your Hepsia Hosting Control Panel to forward the email addresses configured on our server to a third-party address. In the very same area you will also be able to see how many of your mailboxes are forwarded and where the inbound messages are sent. It is possible to activate or disable a forwarding account whenever you want and throughout the process you can also decide if a backup of the email messages should be kept in our system or not. Even if this feature isn't a requirement, it is quite helpful since you will have a backup of the emails on our end just in case that anything happens with the third-party mailbox. Even if they've got just a short-term issue, you run the risk of losing email messages as once our system gets and forwards an email, nothing at all will be kept on our end unless you chosen a copy to be maintained.
