The term e-mail forwarding describes an email being forwarded from a recipient address to a third-party address which isn't mentioned as a recipient. For instance, a customer sends an e-mail from their personal mailbox to support@domain.com and as far as they are involved, this is the single receiver. If there's an active forwarding, the email can be sent to owner@domain.com, for example, even though the customer in no way meant the message to be sent there and might not be aware about the presence of this mail box. There are different reasons for working with such forwarding. For instance, if you have many e-mail addresses you're able to forward each of them to a one email address, which will make checking e-mails less complicated and will permit you to get emails and respond timely. The feature could also be used in case a number of individuals should get a copy of an e mail message sent to a general mail box.

E-mail Forwarding in Shared Hosting

If you have a shared hosting package with us and you create an e-mail address inside your account, you are able to forward it with just a few mouse clicks to another address of your choice. The option can be activated when you make a brand new mailbox or whenever you want later and deactivated just as easily if you change your mind. This can be done through the Hepsia Hosting Control Panel where you will control your account. In addition, you will have the option to choose if a duplicate of the incoming e-mails will remain on our servers or not. The main benefit of this option is that you will always have a copy on your server if something happens with the other mailbox or maybe if it's not active for whatever reason at the time an email message is forwarded. When the feature not enabled, an email will be received, forwarded and deleted from our system no matter if the remote e-mail address is working or not, so it is usually a wise decision for it to be active just to be on the safe side.

E-mail Forwarding in Semi-dedicated Hosting

The feature-rich Email Manager tool in the Hepsia Hosting Control Panel, which will come with all the semi-dedicated service, will let you forward any email address that you set up with the account to one or several different email address with only a few clicks. You will also have the ability to see a listing of all of the mailboxes that you have, which ones are forwarded as well as exactly where they are forwarded to. The option can be activated and disabled at any moment and you can now also decide on should a backup of the inbound e-mails should be kept on our servers or not. Though this feature is not required, it may be more convenient when you take advantage of it, as you will possess a copy of the e-mails if there's any kind of trouble with the remote email server. Regardless of whether there's a temporary problem and no emails are lost on our system, you may still not receive a forwarded email in the event it was sent by our servers within the downtime.
