The term email forwarding describes an e-mail being forwarded from a recipient address towards a third-party address that's not mentioned as a recipient. For instance, a customer sends out an email from their private mailbox to support@domain.com and as much as they're involved, this is actually the only receiver. If there is an active forwarding, the email may be sent to owner@domain.com, for example, even though the customer never meant the email to be sent there and might not be aware of the existence of this mailbox. There are several purposes for using such forwarding. For example, if you've got various email addresses you're able to forward all of them to a sole email address, which can make keeping track of email messages simpler and allows you to get messages and respond to them on time. The feature can also be used if a number of individuals should receive a copy of an email message sent to a general mailbox.

E-mail Forwarding in Cloud Website Hosting

If you have a cloud website hosting package with our company and you create an e-mail address in your account, you will be able to forward it with only a couple of mouse clicks to another address of your choice. The feature can be activated whenever you create a new mailbox or at any time afterwards and disabled just as easily if you change your mind. This can be done with the Hepsia Hosting Control Panel where you can manage your account. Additionally, you will have the option to decide if a duplicate of the incoming e-mails will stay on our servers or not. The benefit of this option is you will always have a copy on your end if something occurs with the other mailbox or maybe it is not active for reasons unknown at the time an email is forwarded. When the option is not active, a message will be received, forwarded and removed from our system regardless of whether the remote e-mail is operating or not, so it is actually a good idea for it to be enabled just to be on the safe side.

E-mail Forwarding in Semi-dedicated Servers

The feature-rich Email Manager interface inside the Hepsia Hosting Control Panel, which will come with all our semi-dedicated plan, will enable you to forward any e-mail address that you set up in the account to one particular or many additional addresses with just a handful of clicks. You will additionally have the ability to see a listing of all of the mailboxes that you have, which of them are forwarded as well as exactly where they are forwarded to. The option can be activated and deactivated whenever you want and you can now also select whether a backup of the inbound email messages ought to be maintained on our system or not. Even though this feature is not necessary, it may be more convenient once you take advantage of it, as you will have a backup of the e-mails when there is any kind of problem with the remote mail server. Even when there is a temporary issue and no emails are lost on our system, you might still not get a forwarded e-mail in the event it was sent by our servers within the downtime.
