The term email forwarding describes an email being forwarded from a receiving address towards a third-party address which isn't listed as a recipient. For example, a customer sends out an email from their private mail box to support@domain.com and as far as they are concerned, this is actually the only recipient. When there is an active forwarding, the email may be sent to owner@domain.com, for example, although the customer in no way intended the email to be sent there and may not be aware about the existence of this mailbox. There are different reasons for making use of such forwarding. For example, if you have several e-mail addresses you can forward each of them to a sole mail box, which can make checking emails easier and will allow you to receive e-mails and respond promptly. The feature can also be used if a number of individuals should get a copy of an electronic message sent to a general mail box.

E-mail Forwarding in Hosting

It is really simple to create forwarding for any e-mail configured inside a hosting account from us. This can be done either while you set up a brand new email address using your Hepsia Hosting Control Panel, or any time in the future as the forwarding may be enabled and disabled for any active mailbox with only a few mouse clicks. It's also possible to choose if a backup of the incoming e-mails will be maintained on our servers, which is a really helpful feature. This will be a fail-safe if the remote email address is not available for some reason, not mentioning you will have always a copy of all your 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 no record of it will stay on the server. In case the remote mailbox is unavailable for the moment, you will simply lose this email.

E-mail Forwarding in Semi-dedicated Servers

Using a semi-dedicated server plan through our company, it will take just a few mouse clicks to forward any of your email addresses hosted in your account to a third-party email address. It will be possible to do that in the feature-rich Email Manager area of the Hepsia Hosting Control Panel and during the process you can also decide if a copy of your emails should be maintained on our servers or not. The aforementioned feature is optional, but useful because you will have a copy of your inbound messages, so regardless of whether anything occurs with the other mailbox, you simply won't lose any info. It is easy to enable or deactivate the forwarding for just about any mailbox at any time and forward the emails to various email addresses if you need. Additionally, you will be able to view a listing of all email addresses that are being forwarded and exactly where the email messages are being sent to.
