The term email forwarding refers to a message being forwarded from a receiving address towards a third-party address which is not listed as a recipient. For instance, a client sends an e-mail from their private mailbox to and as much as they're concerned, this is actually the only receiver. If there is an active forwarding, the email might be sent to, for example, even though the customer never intended the e-mail to be sent there and might not be aware of the presence of this mailbox. There are different reasons for making use of such forwarding. For instance, if you've got numerous email addresses it is easy to forward each of them to a sole mail box, which can make keeping track of email messages easier and will allow you to get e-mails and respond in a timely manner. The function may also be used in case a number of individuals should receive a copy of an electronic message sent to a general email address.

E-mail Forwarding in Website Hosting

In case you have a website hosting package with us and you set up an email address in your account, you'll be able to forward it with only a few clicks to any other address of your choosing. The option can be enabled whenever you make a brand new mailbox or whenever you want afterwards and disabled just as quickly in case you change your mind. This is done with the Hepsia Hosting Control Panel in which you will manage your account. You'll have the option to choose whether a duplicate of the incoming e-mails will remain on our servers or not. The benefit of this feature is that you will always have a copy on your server if anything happens with the other mailbox or maybe it isn't active for whatever reason during the time an email is forwarded. When the option is not active, an email will be received, forwarded and removed from our servers regardless of whether the remote e-mail is functioning or not, so it can be quite a wise decision for it to be enabled just to be prepared.

E-mail Forwarding in Semi-dedicated Hosting

If you have a semi-dedicated server from us, you will need just a few mouse clicks in the Email Manager section of your Hepsia Hosting Control Panel to forward the e-mails set up on our server to a third-party e-mail address. Inside the same section you will also be able to observe how many of your email addresses are forwarded and exactly where the inbound emails are sent. You can enable or deactivate a forwarding account at any time and during the process you may as well choose if a backup of the messages should be kept in our system or not. Even though this feature isn't a necessity, it is very useful as you will get a backup of the messages on our end in case that anything happens with the third-party mailbox. Even when they've got a short-term problem, you risk losing email messages as once our system gets and forwards an email, absolutely nothing will be kept on our end if you haven’t chosen a copy to be kept.
