The term e-mail forwarding refers to an e-mail being forwarded from a receiving address towards a third-party address that isn't listed as a receiver. For instance, a client sends an email from their private mail box to support@domain.com and as much as they're concerned, this is actually the only receiver. If there is an active forwarding, the email can be sent to owner@domain.com, for instance, although the customer never intended the message to be sent there and may not be aware about the existence of this mail box. There are numerous purposes for using such forwarding. For instance, if you've got various e-mail addresses it is possible to forward each of them to a single mailbox, which will make keeping track of e-mails easier and will allow you to receive emails and respond quickly. The function can also be used in case a number of people should get a copy of an e mail message sent to a standard mail box.
E-mail Forwarding in Website Hosting
It is very easy to create forwarding for virtually every e-mail created inside a website hosting account from our company. This can be done either when you set up a new e-mail address in your Hepsia Hosting Control Panel, or at any time afterwards since the forwarding may be enabled and deactivated for any existing mailbox with a couple of mouse clicks. You can also choose if a backup of the incoming e-mails will be maintained on our servers, which is a pretty handy feature. This will be a fail-safe if the remote email address is not accessible for some cause, not mentioning that you will also have a copy of all of the messages. If this option is not activated for a specific email address on our end, an inbound message will be received and sent forward, so zero record of it will remain on the server. In case the remote email address is unavailable for the moment, you'll lose this message.
E-mail Forwarding in Semi-dedicated Hosting
For people with a semi-dedicated server from us, you'll need only a couple of clicks inside the Email Manager section of your Hepsia Hosting Control Panel to forward the e-mails created on our system to a third-party address. In the exact same area you will additionally be able to observe how many of your mailboxes are forwarded and where the inbound emails are sent. You're able to enable or disable a forwarding account at any time and during the process you may also choose if a copy of the e-mails has to be maintained on our servers or not. Even if this feature is not a necessity, it is valuable because you will get a backup of the messages on our end in case that anything happens with the third-party mailbox. Even if they've got only a short-term issue, you risk losing emails as once our server receives and forwards a message, nothing will be maintained on our end if you haven’t chosen a copy to be stored.
