The term e-mail forwarding refers to a message being forwarded from a receiving address to a third-party address that is not listed as a recipient. For example, a client sends an email from their personal mail box to email@example.com and as much as they're concerned, this is the only receiver. When there is an active forwarding, the message may be forwarded to firstname.lastname@example.org, for instance, even though the customer never intended the e-mail to be sent there and might not be aware of the existence of this mail box. There are various purposes for using such forwarding. For example, if you have many emails you are able to forward all of them to a one mailbox, which will make checking emails less complicated and will permit you to collect e-mails and respond to them quickly. The feature can also be used in case a number of individuals should receive a copy of an email message sent to a standard email address.
E-mail Forwarding in Shared Website Hosting
The Hepsia Control Panel, that is provided with all of the shared website hosting
packages, will allow you to forward any email in the account to a different one without difficulty. This can be done either during the creation of a brand new email address or at any time later in case you choose that you'll need this function. During the process, you'll be able to choose if you need a duplicate of the messages to be kept on the server. In this way, you will have a backup and you will steer clear of the possibility to lose an e-mail if the forwarding is to an outside address, that's temporarily unavailable. This option can be activated and deactivated at any moment, but if you use emails for essential matters, it is best to use it, because no data of the email messages are kept on the server in case the option is not enabled. If you determine that you don't need forwarding any more, it takes just a click to disable it.
E-mail Forwarding in Semi-dedicated Servers
For people with a semi-dedicated server
through us, it will take you just a couple of clicks inside the Email Manager section of your Hepsia Hosting Control Panel to forward any of the e-mail addresses created on our system to a third-party e-mail address. Inside the very same area you will additionally be able to see how many of your email addresses are forwarded and where the inbound messages are going. You're able to enable or disable a forwarding account at any moment and during the process you can also choose if a copy of the emails needs to be maintained on our servers or not. Although this feature isn't a necessity, it is quite practical since you will get a backup copy of the emails on our end in the event that anything occurs with the third-party mailbox. Even when they've got only a momentary problem, you run the risk of losing email messages as when our server gets and forwards a message, nothing will be kept on our end unless you chosen a backup to be maintained.
