The term e-mail forwarding describes a message being forwarded from a receiving address to a third-party address that isn't listed as a receiver. For instance, a client sends out an email from their personal mailbox to support@domain.com and as far as they are involved, this is actually the only recipient. If there's an active forwarding, the e-mail could be forwarded to owner@domain.com, for instance, although the customer never meant the e-mail to be sent there and might not be aware of the existence of this mailbox. There are various reasons for applying such forwarding. For example, if you've several email addresses it is easy to forward them all to a one mailbox, which can make checking emails easier and will permit you to collect emails and respond in a timely manner. The function can also be used if a number of people should get a copy of an e-mail message delivered to a general email address.

E-mail Forwarding in Hosting

It really is easy to configure forwarding for every email set up in a hosting account with our company. This can be achieved either when you make a new email address through your Hepsia Hosting Control Panel, or at any moment afterwards since the forwarding may be enabled and disabled for any current email address with only a few mouse clicks. It is also possible to choose if a backup of the incoming emails will be maintained on our servers, a really handy feature. This can be a fail-safe in case that the remote email address is not available for whatever reason, not mentioning you will always have a backup of all messages. If this option is not enabled for a given e-mail on our end, an inbound e-mail will be received and sent forward, so absolutely no record of it will stay on our server. If the remote email address is unavailable for the moment, you'll lose this e-mail.

E-mail Forwarding in Semi-dedicated Servers

If you have a semi-dedicated server through our company, it will take only a few mouse clicks in the Email Manager area of your Hepsia Hosting Control Panel to forward any of the emails configured on our end to a third-party address. Inside the very same section you will also be able to see how many of your mailboxes are forwarded and where the inbound messages are sent. It is easy to enable or disable a forwarding account at any moment and during the process you may as well choose if a backup copy of the email messages has to be maintained on our servers or not. Although this option is not a requirement, it's very helpful because you will get a backup copy of the messages on our end in case that anything occurs with the third-party email address. Even if they've got a short-term problem, you risk losing e-mails as once our system gets and forwards an e-mail message, nothing at all will be kept on our end unless you selected a copy to be kept.
