The term email forwarding refers to an e-mail being forwarded from a receiving address towards a third-party address that's not mentioned as a recipient. For example, a customer sends an email from their personal mail box to support@domain.com and as much as they're involved, it is the only recipient. If there's an active forwarding, the e-mail may be sent to owner@domain.com, for instance, although the customer never meant the e-mail to be sent there and may not be aware of the existence of this mailbox. There are various reasons for applying such forwarding. For instance, if you've numerous e-mail addresses you are able to forward them all to a one mailbox, which will make keeping track of e-mails simpler and will permit you to collect e-mails and respond to them timely. The function may also be used if a number of individuals should get a copy of an e mail message sent to a standard email address.

E-mail Forwarding in Cloud Hosting

The Hepsia Control Panel, which is provided with all our cloud hosting plans, will help you forward any e-mail address in the account to an alternative one without any difficulty. You can do this either during the creation of a brand new mailbox or at any time later if you choose that you need this feature. During the process, you will be able to decide if you want a copy of the email messages to be kept on the server. In this way, you will have a backup and you will steer clear of the possibility to lose an e-mail if the forwarding is to an external address, which can be temporarily unavailable. This option can be activated and disabled whenever you want, and if you use e-mails for critical matters, it is far better to use it, because no data of the emails will be kept on the server if the option is not active. If you decide that you don't need forwarding any longer, it takes only a mouse click to deactivate it.

E-mail Forwarding in Semi-dedicated Hosting

For people with a semi-dedicated server from us, you'll need simply a couple of mouse clicks inside the Email Manager section of your Hepsia Hosting Control Panel to forward any of the emails created on our system to a third-party address. Inside the same area you will also have the ability to observe how many of your mailboxes are forwarded and where the inbound messages are sent. You can activate or deactivate a forwarding account at any moment and throughout the process you could also decide whether a backup of the email messages needs to be maintained on our servers or not. Even though this feature is not a requirement, it is very useful because you will get a backup copy of the messages on our end just in case that something happens with the third-party mailbox. Even when they have just a short-term issue, you run the risk of losing e-mail messages as once our server gets and forwards an email, absolutely nothing will be maintained on our end if you haven’t selected a copy to be stored.
