The term email forwarding describes an e-mail being forwarded from a receiving address to a third-party address that's not listed as a recipient. For instance, a customer sends an email from their personal mail box to email@example.com and as far as they're concerned, this is actually the only recipient. If there's an active forwarding, the e-mail could be forwarded to firstname.lastname@example.org, for example, even though the customer in no way meant the message to be sent there and might not be aware of the presence of this mailbox. There are different reasons for using such forwarding. For example, if you've got numerous email addresses you can forward each of them to a one mail box, which can make keeping track of email messages less difficult and will allow you to collect messages and respond in a timely manner. The function 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 Web Hosting
The Hepsia Control Panel, that is provided with all the shared web hosting
plans, will let you forward any e-mail address in the account to another one easily. This can be done either throughout the creation of a new email address or any time later in case you choose that you require this feature. During the process, you will be able to decide if you need a backup of the e-mails to be maintained on the server. In this way, you will have a backup and you'll avoid the probability to lose an email if the forwarding is to an external address, which can be temporarily inaccessible. This feature can be activated and disabled whenever you want, though if you use e-mail for essential matters, it is advisable to use it, since no data of the email messages are maintained on the server if the option is not enabled. Any time you decide that you don't need forwarding any longer, it takes only a click to deactivate it.
E-mail Forwarding in Semi-dedicated Hosting
For people with a semi-dedicated server
from our company, it will take you a few clicks inside the Email Manager section of your Hepsia Hosting Control Panel to forward the e-mail addresses created on our system to a third-party e-mail address. In the very same section you will also have the ability to observe how many of your email addresses are forwarded and exactly where the inbound messages are sent. It is easy to enable or deactivate a forwarding account whenever you want and throughout the process you can also choose if a backup copy of the messages should be maintained in our system or not. Although this feature is not a must have, it is very useful because you will get a copy of the messages on our end in case that anything occurs with the third-party email address. Even when they've got a short-term issue, you risk losing e-mail messages as the moment our system gets and forwards a message, nothing at all will be kept on our end if you haven’t selected a backup to be maintained.
