The term e-mail forwarding refers to a message being forwarded from a receiving address towards a third-party address that's not mentioned as a recipient. For instance, a client sends an e-mail from their personal mailbox to support@domain.com and as far as they are concerned, it is the single receiver. If there is an active forwarding, the e-mail could be sent to owner@domain.com, for instance, although the customer never meant the message to be sent there and may not be aware about the presence of this mailbox. There are different purposes for making use of such forwarding. For example, if you've got many email addresses you're able to forward them all to a single email address, which can make keeping track of e-mails less difficult and will permit you to collect e-mails and respond to them in a timely manner. The feature can also be used in case a number of people should get a copy of an electronic message delivered to a general email address.
E-mail Forwarding in Cloud Web Hosting
It's possible to forward any email address hosted on our servers to one or more third-party addresses without any difficulty if you have a cloud web hosting package with us. The option can be enabled and deactivated from the Emails section of the Hepsia Control Panel at any moment and you will be able to view an index of all emails where your correspondence is sent to. You will also have the option to leave a duplicate of the incoming messages on the server and have a backup in case that you remove anything from the remote mailbox. This feature can be very practical if there's a brief downtime with the other email address. As long as it really is activated so we keep a copy of all your e-mails being relayed through our servers, you simply won't risk sacrificing e-mails.
E-mail Forwarding in Semi-dedicated Hosting
If you have a semi-dedicated server from us, it will take you simply a few clicks in the Email Manager area of your Hepsia Hosting Control Panel to forward the emails set up on our system to a third-party address. Inside the very same area you will additionally be able to see how many of your mailboxes are forwarded and where the inbound messages are going. It is possible to enable or disable a forwarding account whenever you want and during the process you may also decide if a copy of the messages should be kept in our system or not. Although this option isn't a necessity, it is very valuable since you will get a backup copy of the messages on our end in the event that something happens with the third-party email address. Even when they've got only a momentary problem, you risk losing emails as when our system receives and forwards an e-mail, absolutely nothing will be kept on our end if you haven’t selected a backup to be kept.
