The term email forwarding refers to an e-mail message being forwarded from a recipient address to a third-party address which isn't mentioned as a recipient. For example, a client sends out an email from their private mailbox to support@domain.com and as much as they are involved, this is actually the only receiver. When there is an active forwarding, the e-mail may be forwarded to owner@domain.com, for instance, although the customer in no way intended the email to be sent there and may not be aware of the presence of this mailbox. There are numerous purposes for working with such forwarding. For example, if you have a number of e-mail addresses it is easy to forward each of them to a single email address, which will make monitoring emails easier and will allow you to receive messages and respond promptly. The function could also be used if a number of people should receive a copy of an electronic message delivered to a general email address.
E-mail Forwarding in Shared Hosting
It is easy to configure forwarding for virtually every e-mail configured in a shared hosting account with us. This can be achieved either when you make a brand new e-mail address using your Hepsia Hosting Control Panel, or at any time later because the forwarding can be activated and disabled for any existing mailbox with a couple of clicks. It's also possible to choose if a backup copy of the inbound messages will be kept on our servers, a pretty valuable option. This will be a fail-safe if the remote email address is not available for whatever cause, not mentioning that you'll have always a backup of all of the e-mails. When this option is not activated for a specific e-mail address on our end, an incoming email will be received and sent forward, so zero record of it will remain on the server. If the remote mailbox is unavailable for the moment, you'll lose this e-mail.
E-mail Forwarding in Semi-dedicated Servers
The feature-rich Email Manager tool within the Hepsia Hosting Control Panel, which will come with all of the semi-dedicated service, will help you to forward any email that you create in the account to one or several different addresses with no more than a couple of mouse clicks. You will additionally be able to see a listing of all of the email addresses you have, those that are forwarded and also exactly where they are forwarded to. The option can be activated and deactivated at any moment and you can now additionally select should a backup of the incoming e-mails needs to be kept on our system or not. Though this feature is optional, it might be far easier when you take advantage of it, because you will get a backup of the emails if there is any kind of trouble with the remote mail server. Even if there's a short-term problem and no email messages are lost on our system, you may still not get a forwarded e-mail if it was sent by our servers during the downtime.
