The term email forwarding describes an e-mail being forwarded from a receiving address to a third-party address which isn't listed as a receiver. For instance, a client sends out an e-mail from their personal mailbox to support@domain.com and as far as they're involved, this is actually the only recipient. If there is an active forwarding, the email might be forwarded to owner@domain.com, for example, although the customer never meant the message to be sent there and might not be aware of the presence of this mailbox. There are different purposes for applying such forwarding. For example, if you've various e-mail addresses you'll be able to forward them all to a sole mailbox, which will make monitoring email messages simpler and will allow you to receive emails and respond to them quickly. The function may also be used if a number of people should receive a copy of an e-mail message sent to a standard email address.
E-mail Forwarding in Cloud Website Hosting
In case you have a cloud website hosting plan with us and you set up an e-mail address in your account, you'll be able to forward it with just a few mouse clicks to another e-mail address of your choice. The option can be activated whenever you make a new mailbox or any time later and disabled just as easily if you change your mind. This can be done from the Hepsia Hosting Control Panel in which you will control your account. You'll have the option to decide if a copy of the inbound messages will stay on our servers or not. The advantage of this option is you will always have a backup on your end if something happens with the other mailbox or maybe if it isn't active for whatever reason at the time an e-mail is forwarded. If the option is not enabled, a message will be received, forwarded and deleted from our servers regardless of whether the remote email address is working or not, so it can be quite a good idea to have it active just to be prepared.
E-mail Forwarding in Semi-dedicated Hosting
For people with a semi-dedicated server through us, you will need just a few mouse clicks in the Email Manager part of your Hepsia Hosting Control Panel to forward any of the emails created on our end to a third-party address. Inside the exact same area you will also be able to observe how many of your email addresses are forwarded and exactly where the incoming e-mails are sent. It is possible to activate or deactivate a forwarding account whenever you want and throughout the process you may as well choose whether a copy of the e-mails has to be maintained on our servers or not. Even though this feature isn't a must have, it is quite valuable since you will get a backup copy of the messages on our end in case that anything occurs with the third-party mailbox. Even when they've got only a short-term issue, you run the risk of losing emails as once our server receives and forwards an e-mail message, nothing will be maintained on our end if you haven’t chosen a copy to be kept.
