The term e-mail forwarding refers to an e-mail message being forwarded from a recipient address towards a third-party address that's not mentioned as a receiver. For instance, a client sends an email from their private mailbox to email@example.com and as far as they're involved, this is the single receiver. When there is an active forwarding, the message may be sent to firstname.lastname@example.org, for instance, even though the customer in no way meant the message to be sent there and might not be aware about the presence of this mail box. There are numerous purposes for working with such forwarding. For instance, if you've got various email addresses you are able to forward them all to a sole mailbox, which will make monitoring emails simpler and allows you to receive emails and respond to them timely. The feature could also be used in case a number of people should receive a copy of an e-mail message delivered to a standard email address.
E-mail Forwarding in Hosting
The Hepsia Control Panel, which comes with all our hosting
plans, will let you forward any email address in the account to an alternative one effortlessly. You can do this either during the creation of a brand new email address or any time afterwards if you choose that you want this feature. During the process, you'll be able to consider if you need a copy of the e-mails to be kept on the server. In this way, you'll have a backup and you'll prevent the probability to lose an e-mail if the forwarding is to an external address, which is momentarily inaccessible. This feature can be activated and deactivated at any time, and if you use emails for crucial matters, it is far better to use it, as no data of the e-mails will be maintained on the server when the option is not enabled. If you determine that you do not need forwarding any longer, it takes only a click to deactivate it.
E-mail Forwarding in Semi-dedicated Hosting
If you have a semi-dedicated server
from our company, you will need simply a few clicks inside the Email Manager section of your Hepsia Hosting Control Panel to forward the e-mails set up on our end to a third-party address. Inside the very same area you will additionally be able to see how many of your email addresses are forwarded and exactly where the inbound emails are going. You can enable or deactivate a forwarding account at any time and throughout the process you can also choose if a backup of the email messages needs to be maintained in our system or not. Although this feature is not a necessity, it's practical as you will have a backup copy of the messages on our end just in case that something occurs with the third-party mailbox. Even when they've got just a temporary issue, you run the risk of losing e-mails as when our server gets and forwards an e-mail, nothing at all will be stored on our end unless you selected a copy to be maintained.
