The term e-mail forwarding describes an email being forwarded from a receiving address towards a third-party address which isn't mentioned as a receiver. For example, a client sends out an email from their personal mailbox to firstname.lastname@example.org and as far as they're concerned, it is the only recipient. If there is an active forwarding, the e-mail may be forwarded to email@example.com, for example, although the customer never intended the e-mail to be sent there and may not be aware of the presence of this mail box. There are numerous reasons for working with such forwarding. For example, if you've got several email addresses you'll be able to forward each of them to a sole mailbox, which can make keeping track of emails simpler and will allow you to collect messages and respond in a timely manner. The function may also be used in case a number of individuals should get a copy of an electronic message sent to a general mail box.
E-mail Forwarding in Shared Hosting
The Hepsia Control Panel, that comes with all the shared hosting
packages, will let you forward any email address inside the account to another one easily. This can be done either throughout the creation of a new mailbox or whenever you want afterwards if you decide that you want this feature. During the process, you will be able to choose if you want a copy of the e-mails to be maintained on the server. In this way, you will have a backup and you'll steer clear of the possibility to lose an e-mail message if the forwarding is to an external address, that's momentarily inaccessible. This option can be activated and disabled at any time, and when you use e-mails for essential matters, it is advisable to use it, as no data of the emails will be maintained on the server when the option is not enabled. Any time you decide that you do not need forwarding any more, it takes just a click to deactivate it.
E-mail Forwarding in Semi-dedicated Hosting
If you have a semi-dedicated server
through our company, it will take only a couple of clicks in the Email Manager area of your Hepsia Hosting Control Panel to forward the emails created on our server to a third-party address. In the same area you will also be able to observe how many of your email addresses are forwarded and where the incoming e-mails are going. It is possible to activate or disable a forwarding account whenever you want and during the process you can also decide if a backup of the messages should be kept in our system or not. Even though this option is not a requirement, it is quite handy because you will have a backup of the emails on our end in the event that something happens with the third-party mailbox. Even if they've got just a momentary issue, you risk losing e-mails as the moment our system receives and forwards an email, absolutely nothing will be kept on our end unless you selected a copy to be kept.
