The term email 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 e-mail from their private mailbox to firstname.lastname@example.org and as much as they're concerned, this is actually the only recipient. If there's an active forwarding, the message could be sent to email@example.com, for example, although the customer in no way intended the message to be sent there and may not be aware of the presence of this mail box. There are various reasons for working with such forwarding. For instance, if you've a number of emails it is easy to forward them all to a single mail box, which will make keeping track of e-mails less complicated and will allow you to receive messages and respond to them timely. The feature may also be used if a number of individuals should receive a copy of an electronic message sent to a general email address.
E-mail Forwarding in Shared Hosting
The Hepsia Control Panel, that comes with all the shared hosting
plans, will help you forward any email address inside the account to a second one without difficulty. This can be done either during the creation of a new mailbox or whenever you want later in case you decide that you'll need this feature. During the process, you'll be able to decide if you need a duplicate of the email messages to be maintained on the server. This way, you'll have a backup and you will avoid the possibility to lose an email if the forwarding is to an exterior address, that's temporarily unavailable. This option can be activated and disabled any time, and when you use e-mails for critical matters, it is best to use it, since no data of the e-mails are maintained on the server when the option is not enabled. Any time you decide that you don't need forwarding anymore, it will take a mouse click to disable it.
E-mail Forwarding in Semi-dedicated Servers
For people with a semi-dedicated server
through us, it will take only a few mouse clicks in the Email Manager part of your Hepsia Hosting Control Panel to forward any of the emails set up on our end to a third-party address. In the very same section you will also have the ability to observe how many of your mailboxes are forwarded and exactly where the inbound messages are sent. You're able to activate or disable a forwarding account whenever you want and during the process you may also choose whether a copy of the messages should be kept in our system or not. Although this feature is not a requirement, it is extremely valuable since you will have a backup of the messages on our end in the event that anything happens with the third-party email address. Even if they have only a temporary issue, you run the risk of losing e-mails as the moment our system receives and forwards an e-mail message, nothing at all will be kept on our end if you haven’t chosen a backup to be saved.
