The term email forwarding refers to a message being forwarded from a receiving address towards a third-party address that's not listed as a recipient. For example, a customer sends out an e-mail from their personal mailbox to email@example.com and as much as they're concerned, it is the single recipient. If there's an active forwarding, the email might be sent to firstname.lastname@example.org, for example, although the customer never intended the e-mail to be sent there and may not be aware about the existence of this mail box. There are various reasons for using such forwarding. For instance, if you've got various e-mail addresses you're able to forward each of them to a one mail box, which can make keeping track of emails easier and will allow you to get messages and respond quickly. The feature can also be used in case a number of individuals should get a copy of an email message delivered to a standard mailbox.
E-mail Forwarding in Web Hosting
If you have a web hosting
plan with us and you create an e-mail address in your account, you are able to forward it with only a few clicks to another e-mail address of your choosing. The option can be activated when you set up a brand new email address or any time later on and deactivated just as quickly any time you change your mind. This can be done through the Hepsia Hosting Control Panel in which you can control your account. Additionally, you will have the option to decide if a backup of the incoming e-mails will remain on our servers or not. The main advantage of this feature is you will always have a copy on your server if anything occurs with the other email address or maybe if it's not active for some reason at the time a message is forwarded. If the feature not enabled, an email will be received, forwarded and deleted from our servers even if the remote e-mail address is functioning or not, so it can be quite a wise decision to have it active just to be prepared.
E-mail Forwarding in Semi-dedicated Servers
The feature-rich Email Manager interface in your Hepsia Hosting Control Panel, which comes with all the semi-dedicated server
, will help you to forward any e-mail that you make with the account to one particular or a number of additional email address with just a handful of clicks. You'll have the ability to view a number of all of the email addresses you have, which of them are forwarded as well as exactly where they're forwarded to. This feature can be enabled and deactivated at any time and you can now also select if a copy of the inbound e-mails should be kept on our system or not. Though this option is not necessary, it may be far more convenient when you take advantage of it, as you will possess a copy of the emails if there is some kind of issue with the remote email server. Regardless of whether there's a short-term problem and no email messages are lost on our servers, you may still not get a forwarded email if it was relayed by our servers during the downtime.
