The term email forwarding describes an e-mail message being forwarded from a receiving address to a third-party address which isn't mentioned as a receiver. For instance, a customer sends an email from their private mail box to and as much as they are involved, this is actually the only receiver. If there's an active forwarding, the message may be forwarded to, for example, although the customer in no way meant the e-mail to be sent there and may not be aware about the presence of this mail box. There are various reasons for applying such forwarding. For example, if you've got various e-mail addresses you'll be able to forward them all to a one email address, which can make keeping track of e-mails less difficult and will permit you to collect messages and respond to them in a timely manner. The feature could also be used in case a number of people should receive a copy of an e-mail message sent to a general email address.
E-mail Forwarding in Shared Hosting
In case you have a shared hosting plan with our company and you set up an e-mail address inside your account, you are able to forward it with no more than a couple of mouse clicks to any other e-mail address of your choice. The option can be activated whenever you set up a new email address or whenever you want later and disabled just as easily any time you change your mind. This is done from the Hepsia Hosting Control Panel in which you will control your account. You'll have the option to choose whether a copy of the inbound emails will stay on our servers or not. The benefit of this option is basically that you will always have a backup on your end if anything happens with the other email address or maybe it isn't active for reasons unknown at the time a message is forwarded. If the option is not active, an e-mail will be received, forwarded and removed from our system even if the remote e-mail address is operating or not, so it generally is a good idea to have it enabled just to be prepared.
E-mail Forwarding in Semi-dedicated Hosting
If you have a semi-dedicated server from our company, you'll need simply a couple of clicks in the Email Manager part of your Hepsia Hosting Control Panel to forward the e-mail addresses set up on our system to a third-party address. In the exact same section you will also be able to see how many of your mailboxes are forwarded and where the inbound e-mails are going. You can activate or deactivate a forwarding account whenever you want and during the process you can also choose whether a copy of the e-mails should be kept on our servers or not. Although this option is not a necessity, it is handy as you will get a copy of the emails on our end just in case that something occurs with the third-party email address. Even when they've got just a momentary issue, you run the risk of losing emails as when our server gets and forwards a message, nothing will be stored on our end unless you chosen a copy to be kept.
