The term email forwarding refers to an e-mail message being forwarded from a recipient address to a third-party address that is not mentioned as a recipient. For example, a customer sends an email from their personal mail box to support@domain.com and as far as they are concerned, it is the single recipient. If there is an active forwarding, the message might be forwarded to owner@domain.com, for example, although the customer in no way meant the email to be sent there and might not be aware of the presence of this mail box. There are several reasons for making use of such forwarding. For example, if you have various emails you're able to forward all of them to a one mail box, which can make checking email messages less difficult and allows you to receive emails and respond quickly. The function may also be used if a number of people should get a copy of an electronic message delivered to a general mailbox.

E-mail Forwarding in Website Hosting

If you have a website hosting plan with us and you set up email addresses in your account, you'll be able to forward it with just a few mouse clicks to any other e-mail address of your choice. The option can be enabled when you make a new email address or at any time later on and disabled just as easily any time you change your mind. This is done through the Hepsia Hosting Control Panel where you will handle your account. In addition, you will have the option to decide if a copy of the inbound e-mails will stay on our servers or not. The main benefit of this feature is basically that you will always have a copy on your end if anything happens with the other mailbox or maybe if it's not active for reasons unknown during the time an email message is forwarded. When the option is not active, an email will be received, forwarded and removed from our servers even if the remote e-mail address is functioning or not, so it generally is a good idea for it to be active just to be on the safe side.

E-mail Forwarding in Semi-dedicated Servers

The feature-rich Email Manager tool in your Hepsia Hosting Control Panel, which will come with all our semi-dedicated server, allows you to forward any email you create with the account to one particular or many other email address with no more than a couple of mouse clicks. You'll have the ability to view a number of all of the mailboxes that you have, which of them are forwarded and also where they're forwarded to. The option can be enabled and deactivated whenever you want and you can also select whether a backup of the incoming e-mails needs to be kept on our servers or not. Even though this feature is not required, it may be more convenient if you take advantage of it, because you have a backup of your e-mails when there is some kind of trouble with the remote mail server. Even if there's a momentary problem and no e-mails are lost on our end, you may still not get a forwarded e-mail in the event it was relayed by our servers within the downtime.
