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 receiver. For instance, a customer sends an e-mail from their private mailbox to support@domain.com and as far as they are concerned, this is actually the single receiver. If there is an active forwarding, the email could be forwarded to owner@domain.com, for instance, even though the customer in no way meant the e-mail to be sent there and may not be aware of the presence of this mail box. There are numerous reasons for making use of such forwarding. For example, if you've numerous email addresses you are able to forward each of them to a sole email address, which can make monitoring e-mails less difficult and will allow you to collect messages and respond timely. The feature may also be used in case a number of individuals should get a copy of an e-mail message delivered to a general mailbox.
E-mail Forwarding in Shared Hosting
It is simple to create forwarding for any e-mail address configured inside a shared hosting account with us. You can do this either while you set up a new email address in your Hepsia Hosting Control Panel, or any time afterwards because the forwarding may be enabled and deactivated for every existing email address with just a few clicks. It's also possible to choose if a copy of the incoming emails will be maintained on our servers, a very handy feature. This will be a fail-safe if the remote email address is not available for some cause, not mentioning that you'll also have a copy of all your e-mails. When this option is not activated for a given email on our end, an inbound message will be received and sent forward, so absolutely no record of it will remain on the server. If the remote email address is inaccessible for the moment, you'll lose this message.
E-mail Forwarding in Semi-dedicated Servers
For people with a semi-dedicated server from us, it will take you simply a few mouse clicks inside the Email Manager section of your Hepsia Hosting Control Panel to forward the e-mails created on our server to a third-party e-mail address. In the exact same area you will also have the ability to observe how many of your email addresses are forwarded and where the inbound e-mails are sent. You can enable or disable a forwarding account at any moment and throughout the process you may also decide if a backup of the emails should be maintained in our system or not. Even though this option is not a must have, it is quite helpful because you will get a copy of the emails on our end in the event that anything happens with the third-party email address. Even when they've got simply a momentary problem, you run the risk of losing email messages as the moment our system gets and forwards an email, nothing will be kept on our end if you haven’t selected a backup to be maintained.
