The term e-mail forwarding describes an email being forwarded from a recipient address to a third-party address that isn't mentioned as a receiver. For example, a client sends an e-mail from their personal mailbox to support@domain.com and as far as they're involved, this is the single recipient. When there is an active forwarding, the e-mail might be forwarded to owner@domain.com, for example, even though the customer never meant the e-mail to be sent there and might not be aware of the existence of this mailbox. There are several purposes for working with such forwarding. For example, if you have several e-mail addresses you're able to forward them all to a sole mailbox, which will make keeping track of e-mails simpler and will permit you to collect e-mails and respond on time. The feature may also be used in case a number of people should get a copy of an e-mail message sent to a general mail box.

E-mail Forwarding in Shared Website Hosting

In case you have a shared website hosting plan with our company and you set up an e-mail address inside your account, you are able to forward it with just a few clicks to any other address of your preference. The feature can be activated when you set up a brand new email address or any time afterwards and deactivated just as quickly if you change your mind. This is done with the Hepsia Hosting Control Panel in which you will handle your account. You'll have the option to choose whether a copy of the incoming e-mails will stay on our servers or not. The benefit of this feature is that you will always have a backup on your server if anything happens with the other email address or maybe it isn't active for reasons unknown at the time a message is forwarded. In case the option is not active, an email will be received, forwarded and removed from our system no matter if the remote e-mail is operating or not, so it might be a good idea for it to be enabled just to be on the safe side.

E-mail Forwarding in Semi-dedicated Hosting

If you have a semi-dedicated server from us, it will take just a couple of mouse clicks inside the Email Manager area of your Hepsia Hosting Control Panel to forward the e-mails configured on our server to a third-party e-mail address. Inside the exact same section you will also have the ability to see how many of your mailboxes are forwarded and where the inbound e-mails are going. It is easy to activate or disable a forwarding account at any moment and throughout the process you can also choose whether a backup copy of the e-mails should be maintained in our system or not. Even though this feature isn't a necessity, it's very handy because you will have a backup of the messages on our end in the event that anything occurs with the third-party mailbox. Even when they have a short-term issue, you risk losing e-mails as when our server receives and forwards an e-mail message, nothing will be stored on our end if you haven’t selected a backup to be saved.
