The term e-mail forwarding refers to an e-mail being forwarded from a recipient address to a third-party address which isn't mentioned as a recipient. For example, a customer sends an email from their personal mailbox to support@domain.com and as much as they're involved, this is the only recipient. If there is an active forwarding, the email could be sent to owner@domain.com, for example, even though the customer never intended the email to be sent there and may not be aware about the presence of this mail box. There are numerous reasons for applying such forwarding. For instance, if you've got numerous e-mail addresses you're able to forward all of them to a one mailbox, which will make checking e-mails simpler and will allow you to collect emails and respond timely. The feature can also be used if a number of individuals should get a copy of an email message sent to a standard email address.

E-mail Forwarding in Cloud Web Hosting

In case you have a cloud web hosting package with us and you create an email address inside your account, you'll be able to forward it with only a few mouse clicks to any other address of your choice. The option can be enabled whenever you create a new email address or at any time later on and deactivated just as easily if you change your mind. This can be done from the Hepsia Hosting Control Panel in which you can control your account. You will also have the option to choose if a backup of the incoming emails will remain on our servers or not. The main advantage of this feature is that you will always have a backup on your end if anything occurs with the other email address or if perhaps it isn't active for reasons unknown during the time an e-mail is forwarded. If the option is not enabled, an e-mail will be received, forwarded and deleted from our servers even if the remote email is functioning or not, so it is actually a good idea to have it active just to be on the safe side.

E-mail Forwarding in Semi-dedicated Hosting

For people with a semi-dedicated server from our company, it will take only a few clicks inside the Email Manager section of your Hepsia Hosting Control Panel to forward the email addresses created on our end to a third-party e-mail address. Inside the very same area you will also be able to see how many of your email addresses are forwarded and exactly where the inbound emails are going. You can activate or deactivate a forwarding account at any moment and throughout the process you may also choose if a backup of the e-mails should be kept on our servers or not. Even though this feature isn't a necessity, it's useful because 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 a short-term issue, you risk losing e-mail messages as once our system receives and forwards an e-mail message, nothing will be kept on our end if you haven’t selected a copy to be kept.
