The term email forwarding describes an e-mail message being forwarded from a recipient address to a third-party address that's not mentioned as a receiver. For instance, a customer sends an e-mail from their personal mailbox to and as much as they are involved, this is actually the only receiver. When there is an active forwarding, the email can be sent to, for example, even though the customer in no way meant the message to be sent there and may not be aware of the existence of this mailbox. There are different reasons for working with such forwarding. For example, if you have a number of e-mail addresses it is possible to forward all of them to a one email address, which can make monitoring email messages less complicated and will allow you to collect emails and respond in a timely manner. The feature could also be used in case a number of people should get a copy of an email message sent to a general mail box.
E-mail Forwarding in Shared Website Hosting
The Hepsia Control Panel, that comes with all of the shared website hosting packages, will help you forward any email in the account to a different one with ease. You can do this either during the creation of a new email address or whenever you want later in case you decide that you'll need this feature. During the process, you'll be able to choose if you prefer a duplicate of the messages to be kept on the server. This way, you will have a backup and you'll prevent the possibility to lose an email if the forwarding is to an exterior address, which can be briefly unavailable. This feature can be activated and deactivated at any time, and if you use e-mail for crucial matters, it is better to use it, as no data of the email messages will be maintained on the server in case the option is not enabled. If you decide that you don't need forwarding anymore, it takes just a click to disable it.
E-mail Forwarding in Semi-dedicated Servers
For people with a semi-dedicated server from us, you'll need a couple of mouse clicks in the Email Manager part of your Hepsia Hosting Control Panel to forward any of the e-mails set up on our server to a third-party address. Inside the exact same area you will additionally be able to see how many of your mailboxes are forwarded and exactly where the incoming messages are going. You're able to enable or deactivate a forwarding account at any moment and during the process you may as well choose if a backup copy of the emails should be maintained on our servers or not. Although this option isn't a requirement, it is practical since you will get a copy of the messages on our end in the event that anything happens with the third-party email address. Even if they have just a temporary issue, you risk losing email messages as the moment our system receives and forwards an e-mail, nothing at all will be stored on our end if you haven’t chosen a backup to be kept.
