The term email forwarding describes a message being forwarded from a receiving address to a third-party address that's not listed as a receiver. For instance, a customer sends an e-mail from their private mail box to support@domain.com and as far as they're concerned, this is the single receiver. If there's an active forwarding, the email can be sent to owner@domain.com, for instance, even though the customer in no way meant the message to be sent there and might not be aware of the presence of this mail box. There are numerous reasons for working with such forwarding. For instance, if you've many e-mail addresses you'll be able to forward each of them to a one mail box, which can make checking email messages simpler and allows you to collect e-mails and respond in a timely manner. The feature can also be used in case a number of individuals should receive a copy of an e-mail message delivered to a standard mail box.

E-mail Forwarding in Hosting

It is very easy to configure forwarding for every email address created inside a hosting account with our company. This can be achieved either when you create a brand new email address in your Hepsia Hosting Control Panel, or at any moment afterwards since the forwarding may be activated and disabled for any existing mailbox with just a few clicks. It is also possible to decide if a backup of the inbound messages will be maintained on our servers, which is a pretty practical option. This can be a fail-safe in case that the remote email address is not available for some cause, not mentioning you will also have a copy of all e-mails. If this feature is not activated for a specific e-mail on our end, an inbound email will be received and sent forward, so zero record of it will remain on our server. When the remote mailbox is unavailable for the moment, you'll lose this e-mail.

E-mail Forwarding in Semi-dedicated Hosting

If you have a semi-dedicated server through our company, you'll need just a few mouse clicks inside the Email Manager area of your Hepsia Hosting Control Panel to forward the email addresses created on our system to a third-party e-mail address. Inside the exact same area you will additionally be able to observe how many of your email addresses are forwarded and where the inbound messages are going. You can enable or disable a forwarding account at any moment and during the process you may also decide if a copy of the messages needs to be maintained in our system or not. Even though this option isn't a must have, it is extremely handy as you will have a backup of the emails on our end just in case that anything occurs with the third-party email address. Even if they have a momentary problem, you risk losing email messages as once our server receives and forwards an email, nothing at all will be maintained on our end if you haven’t chosen a backup to be maintained.
