The term email forwarding describes an e-mail message being forwarded from a receiving address towards a third-party address which is not mentioned as a recipient. For example, a client sends an email from their private mail box to and as much as they are concerned, this is the only receiver. If there's an active forwarding, the email may be sent to, for instance, although the customer in no way meant the e-mail to be sent there and might not be aware about the presence of this mailbox. There are various reasons for working with such forwarding. For example, if you've various emails you can forward them all to a single mailbox, which will make keeping track of emails easier and will allow you to get messages and respond quickly. The function could also be used if a number of people should get a copy of an electronic message sent to a standard mailbox.

E-mail Forwarding in Shared Website Hosting

If you have a shared website hosting package with us and you set up an email address inside your account, you will be able to forward it with just a few mouse clicks to another address of your preference. The feature can be enabled whenever you set up a new email address or whenever you want later and disabled just as easily if you change your mind. This can be done with the Hepsia Hosting Control Panel where you can manage 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 benefit of this feature is that you will always have a backup on your end if something happens with the other mailbox or maybe if it is not active for reasons unknown during the time an email is forwarded. When the option is not active, a message will be received, forwarded and erased from our system regardless of whether the remote email is operating 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

If you have a semi-dedicated server from our company, you'll need a couple of clicks in the Email Manager part of your Hepsia Hosting Control Panel to forward any of the email addresses set up on our system to a third-party address. Inside the exact same area you will additionally have the ability to observe how many of your mailboxes are forwarded and where the incoming messages are going. It is easy to enable or disable a forwarding account at any time and during the process you could also decide if a backup copy of the messages should be maintained in our system or not. Even if this feature isn't a requirement, it is extremely helpful as you will have a copy of the messages on our end in the event that something occurs with the third-party mailbox. Even when they've got only a momentary issue, you run the risk of losing email messages as the moment our server receives and forwards a message, nothing will be kept on our end unless you selected a backup to be stored.
