The term e-mail forwarding describes an email being forwarded from a recipient address to a third-party address that's not mentioned as a receiver. For example, a customer sends out an e-mail from their private mail box to support@domain.com and as much as they are concerned, this is the only recipient. If there is an active forwarding, the email might be forwarded to owner@domain.com, for example, even though the customer never meant the message to be sent there and might not be aware of the existence of this mailbox. There are numerous reasons for using such forwarding. For instance, if you have several emails it is possible to forward each of them to a one email address, which can make checking e-mails less complicated and will allow you to receive e-mails and respond to them timely. The feature could also be used if a number of individuals should receive a copy of an e mail message sent to a standard mail box.
E-mail Forwarding in Shared Web Hosting
The Hepsia Control Panel, which comes with all of the shared web hosting plans, will allow you to forward any email address in the account to an alternative one easily. You can do this either throughout the creation of a brand new mailbox or whenever you want later if you decide that you will need this function. During the process, you are able to choose if you prefer a duplicate of the messages to be kept on the server. In this way, you'll have a backup and you will prevent the possibility to lose an email if the forwarding is to an exterior address, which can be momentarily unavailable. This feature can be enabled and deactivated at any time, and when you use email messages for crucial matters, it is advisable to use it, since no data of the emails are kept on the server when the option is not enabled. If you decide that you do not need forwarding any longer, it will take simply a click to deactivate it.
E-mail Forwarding in Semi-dedicated Hosting
If you have a semi-dedicated server through our company, it will take you simply a few mouse clicks inside the Email Manager section of your Hepsia Hosting Control Panel to forward the email addresses set up on our server to a third-party address. In the same area you will also be able to observe how many of your mailboxes are forwarded and exactly where the incoming messages are sent. You're able to activate or deactivate a forwarding account at any time and during the process you could also decide if a copy of the email messages should be kept in our system or not. Even if this feature is not a must have, it's useful because you will have a backup of the emails on our end in case that something occurs with the third-party email address. Even if they have just a temporary issue, you risk losing e-mail messages as the moment our system receives and forwards an e-mail message, nothing will be stored on our end if you haven’t selected a backup to be saved.
