The term e-mail forwarding refers to an email being forwarded from a recipient address to a third-party address that's not listed as a recipient. For example, a client sends an email from their private mailbox to support@domain.com and as far as they're involved, this is actually the only recipient. If there's an active forwarding, the email might be forwarded to owner@domain.com, for example, although the customer never intended the message to be sent there and might not be aware of the presence of this mailbox. There are numerous purposes for using such forwarding. For example, if you have a number of email addresses you're able to forward all of them to a sole mail box, which will make checking e-mails easier and allows you to receive emails and respond in a timely manner. The function may also be used if a number of individuals should get a copy of an e-mail message delivered to a general mailbox.

E-mail Forwarding in Shared Hosting

You'll be able to forward any e-mail address hosted on our servers to another one or more third-party email addresses easily if you've got a shared hosting plan with us. The option can be enabled and deactivated in the Emails part of the Hepsia Control Panel at any time and you will be able to see a directory of all email addresses where your correspondence will be forwarded to. You will also have the choice to leave a duplicate of the incoming communications on our server and have a backup in case that you delete something from the remote email address. This option can also be quite useful if there's a brief problem with the other email address. As long as it really is activated and we keep a copy of all your emails being relayed through our servers, you simply will not risk losing emails.

E-mail Forwarding in Semi-dedicated Servers

For people with a semi-dedicated server from our company, you'll need a couple of clicks inside the Email Manager part of your Hepsia Hosting Control Panel to forward any of the emails configured on our server to a third-party address. In the very same area you will additionally have the ability to see how many of your email addresses are forwarded and where the inbound emails are going. It is easy to activate or disable a forwarding account whenever you want and during the process you can also choose if a backup copy of the emails needs to be kept in our system or not. Even though this option is not a requirement, it's useful because you will have a copy of the emails on our end in case that something occurs with the third-party email address. Even if they have only a short-term issue, you run the risk of losing e-mail messages as once our system receives and forwards a message, nothing at all will be kept on our end unless you selected a copy to be stored.
