The term email forwarding describes an email message being forwarded from a receiving address towards a third-party address that isn't mentioned as a receiver. For instance, a client sends an e-mail from their personal mailbox to support@domain.com and as much as they are involved, this is actually the single receiver. If there is an active forwarding, the e-mail could be forwarded 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 existence of this mailbox. There are various reasons for applying such forwarding. For example, if you've various emails you're able to forward them all to a one mailbox, which will make checking e-mails less difficult and allows you to get messages and respond timely. The feature could also be used if a number of people should receive a copy of an email message sent to a standard mailbox.

E-mail Forwarding in Cloud Web Hosting

In case you have a cloud web hosting package with us and you create an e-mail address in your account, you will be able to forward it with only a few clicks to another e-mail address of your preference. The option can be activated whenever you set up a brand new email address or any time later and deactivated just as quickly in case you change your mind. This is done with the Hepsia Hosting Control Panel where you will handle your account. Additionally, you will have the option to decide if a backup of the incoming 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 occurs with the other mailbox or maybe if it is not active for reasons unknown at the time an email message is forwarded. In case the feature not enabled, an email will be received, forwarded and erased from our system even if the remote e-mail is functioning or not, so it generally is a good idea for it to be enabled just to be on the safe side.

E-mail Forwarding in Semi-dedicated Servers

If you have a semi-dedicated server through our company, you will need just a few clicks in the Email Manager area of your Hepsia Hosting Control Panel to forward the e-mails set up on our server to a third-party e-mail address. In the exact same area you will also be able to observe how many of your email addresses are forwarded and exactly where the inbound emails are sent. It is possible to activate or disable a forwarding account whenever you want and during the process you may also decide whether a copy of the messages needs to be maintained on our servers or not. Even if this option is not a requirement, it is extremely helpful as you will have a backup of the messages on our end in case that something happens with the third-party mailbox. Even when they've got simply a momentary problem, you run the risk of losing emails as when our system gets and forwards a message, nothing will be kept on our end unless you chosen a copy to be maintained.
