The term e-mail forwarding describes an email message being forwarded from a recipient address towards a third-party address that is not listed as a recipient. For example, a customer sends out an email from their private mail box to support@domain.com and as much as they're involved, it is the single recipient. When there is an active forwarding, the email might be forwarded to owner@domain.com, for instance, although the customer in no way intended the e-mail to be sent there and might not be aware about the presence of this mail box. There are several reasons for using such forwarding. For example, if you've got many emails you can forward each of them to a sole mailbox, which can make keeping track of e-mails less complicated and will allow you to collect e-mails and respond to them on time. The feature may also be used if a number of people should receive a copy of an e mail message delivered to a general email address.

E-mail Forwarding in Cloud Hosting

If you have a cloud hosting package with us and you set up email addresses inside your account, you'll be able to forward it with no more than a few clicks to another address of your choice. The option can be enabled when you set up a brand new email address or at any time afterwards and deactivated just as quickly if you change your mind. This is done from the Hepsia Hosting Control Panel in which you will control your account. In addition, you will have the option to decide if a backup of the incoming emails will remain on our servers or not. The benefit of this option is that you will always have a copy on your end if something happens with the other mailbox or maybe it isn't active for some reason during the time an e-mail is forwarded. When the option is not enabled, a message will be received, forwarded and removed from our system regardless of whether the remote email address is working or not, so it generally is a wise decision to have it active just to be prepared.

E-mail Forwarding in Semi-dedicated Servers

For people with a semi-dedicated server through our company, you'll need only a couple of mouse clicks inside the Email Manager section of your Hepsia Hosting Control Panel to forward any of the emails created on our end to a third-party e-mail address. In the same section you will additionally be able to see how many of your email addresses are forwarded and exactly where the incoming messages are going. You can enable or deactivate a forwarding account at any time and during the process you may as well decide if a backup copy of the messages has to be kept on our servers or not. Even if this feature isn't a requirement, it's very practical as you will get a backup copy of the messages on our end just in case that anything happens with the third-party mailbox. Even if they've got only a momentary problem, you run the risk of losing e-mails as the moment our system gets and forwards a message, nothing will be maintained on our end if you haven’t selected a backup to be maintained.
