The term e-mail forwarding refers to an e-mail message being forwarded from a receiving address towards a third-party address that is not 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're concerned, this is actually the only recipient. If there is an active forwarding, the e-mail may be sent to owner@domain.com, for instance, although the customer never meant the email to be sent there and may not be aware of the presence of this mail box. There are several reasons for making use of such forwarding. For instance, if you've got a number of emails it is possible to forward all of them to a one mail box, which can make monitoring email messages less difficult and will permit you to receive emails and respond quickly. The function can also be used if a number of individuals should receive a copy of an electronic message sent to a standard mailbox.

E-mail Forwarding in Cloud Hosting

If you have a cloud hosting plan with our company and you set up email addresses inside your account, you are able to forward it with only a couple of mouse clicks to any other address of your choosing. The option can be enabled whenever you set up a brand new email address or whenever you want later on and disabled just as easily in case you change your mind. This is done with the Hepsia Hosting Control Panel where you can handle your account. You will also have the option to decide if a backup of the incoming emails will stay on our servers or not. The advantage of this option is that you will always have a backup on your end if something happens with the other email address or if perhaps it isn't active for some reason during the time an email message is forwarded. When the option is not active, an email will be received, forwarded and removed from our system regardless of whether the remote email address is functioning or not, so it can be quite a good idea to have it enabled just to be on the safe side.

E-mail Forwarding in Semi-dedicated Servers

For people with a semi-dedicated server through our company, you will need simply a couple of mouse clicks inside the Email Manager section of your Hepsia Hosting Control Panel to forward the email addresses set up on our end to a third-party e-mail address. Inside the exact same section you will also have the ability to observe how many of your email addresses are forwarded and where the incoming e-mails are going. You're able to activate or deactivate a forwarding account at any time and throughout the process you could also choose whether a backup of the email messages needs to be maintained in our system or not. Even if this feature is not a necessity, it's practical since you will have a backup of the messages on our end just in case that something occurs with the third-party mailbox. Even if they have only a momentary problem, you run the risk of losing e-mail messages as the moment our system gets and forwards an email, absolutely nothing will be stored on our end if you haven’t chosen a copy to be maintained.
