The term email forwarding refers to an email being forwarded from a recipient address to a third-party address which is not listed as a recipient. For example, a customer sends out an email from their personal mailbox to email@example.com and as much as they are concerned, it is the single receiver. If there is an active forwarding, the e-mail could be sent to firstname.lastname@example.org, for example, although the customer never meant the message to be sent there and may not be aware of the existence of this mailbox. There are numerous purposes for applying such forwarding. For instance, if you've various email addresses it is possible to forward all of them to a one email address, which will make keeping track of e-mails less difficult and allows you to receive messages and respond to them promptly. The feature may also be used in case a number of people should get a copy of an e-mail message delivered to a general mail box.
E-mail Forwarding in Web Hosting
It is really easy to create forwarding for every e-mail set up in a web hosting
account with our company. This can be achieved either while you make a brand new e-mail address through your Hepsia Hosting Control Panel, or at any moment later since the forwarding may be enabled and deactivated for every existing email address with a couple of mouse clicks. It's also possible to decide if a backup copy of the incoming e-mails will be kept on our servers, a very practical option. This can be a fail-safe in case that the remote email address is not accessible for some reason, not mentioning that you'll also have a copy of all your emails. When this option is not enabled for a given email address on our end, an inbound e-mail will be received and sent forward, so no record of it will remain on the server. When the remote mailbox is unavailable temporarily, you will simply lose this e-mail.
E-mail Forwarding in Semi-dedicated Servers
For people with a semi-dedicated server
from us, it will take you just a few mouse clicks inside the Email Manager part 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. In the very same section you will additionally have the ability to see how many of your mailboxes are forwarded and where the incoming emails are going. It is easy to activate or deactivate a forwarding account whenever you want and throughout the process you could also choose whether a copy of the e-mails needs to be kept on our servers or not. Even though this option is not a requirement, it's useful because you will have a backup copy of the messages on our end in the event that something happens with the third-party email address. Even when they have only a momentary problem, you run the risk of losing emails as when our server receives and forwards a message, nothing at all will be kept on our end if you haven’t selected a backup to be stored.
