The term e-mail forwarding describes an e-mail being forwarded from a receiving address towards a third-party address which is not mentioned as a recipient. For example, a client sends out an e-mail from their personal mailbox to [email protected] and as much as they are concerned, this is the only receiver. If there's an active forwarding, the message could be forwarded to [email protected], for instance, although the customer never meant the message to be sent there and may not be aware about the presence of this mail box. There are different reasons for applying such forwarding. For example, if you have a number of email addresses you are able to forward all of them to a single mailbox, which will make checking e-mails easier and will permit you to receive emails and respond quickly. The feature could also be used if a number of individuals should get a copy of an electronic message delivered to a standard mail box.

E-mail Forwarding in Shared Hosting

In case you have a shared hosting plan with our company and you create email addresses inside your account, you'll be able to forward it with only a couple of clicks to another address of your preference. The option can be activated when you make a brand new mailbox or whenever you want later and disabled just as quickly in case you change your mind. This can be done from the Hepsia Hosting Control Panel in which you will handle your account. You will also have the option to decide whether a backup of the inbound e-mails will remain on our servers or not. The advantage of this option is that you will always have a backup on your server if something occurs with the other mailbox or maybe it isn't active for some reason during the time an e-mail is forwarded. When the feature not active, an e-mail will be received, forwarded and removed from our servers even if the remote e-mail is operating or not, so it can be quite a good idea for it to be active just to be on the safe side.

E-mail Forwarding in Semi-dedicated Hosting

If you have a semi-dedicated server through our company, it will take you a few mouse clicks in the Email Manager section of your Hepsia Hosting Control Panel to forward any of the emails configured on our end to a third-party e-mail address. Inside the exact same section you will additionally have the ability to see how many of your mailboxes are forwarded and exactly where the inbound emails are going. It is possible to activate or deactivate a forwarding account at any moment and throughout the process you could also choose if a backup of the e-mails has to be kept on our servers or not. Although this option is not a requirement, it is quite handy as you will get a backup copy of the emails on our end just in case that anything occurs with the third-party mailbox. Even when they have a temporary issue, you run the risk of losing e-mails as the moment our system gets and forwards an e-mail, nothing at all will be kept on our end unless you chosen a backup to be saved.
