The term email forwarding refers to an email being forwarded from a recipient address towards a third-party address that isn't mentioned as a receiver. For instance, a client sends out an e-mail from their private mailbox to support@domain.com and as much as they are involved, this is actually the only recipient. When there is an active forwarding, the e-mail could be sent to owner@domain.com, for instance, although the customer in no way intended the email to be sent there and might not be aware about the presence of this mailbox. There are numerous reasons for applying such forwarding. For example, if you've got various e-mail addresses you'll be able to forward each of them to a sole email address, which can make monitoring e-mails less complicated and will allow you to receive e-mails and respond timely. The function could also be used in case a number of individuals should get a copy of an e-mail message sent to a standard mailbox.

E-mail Forwarding in Website Hosting

The Hepsia Control Panel, which is provided with all the website hosting packages, will let you forward any email in the account to an alternative one easily. This can be done either during the creation of a brand new email address or any time later in case you choose that you want this function. During the process, you'll be able to decide if you want a duplicate of the email messages to be kept on the server. This way, you will have a backup and you'll avoid the probability to lose a message if the forwarding is to an exterior address, which is momentarily inaccessible. This feature can be enabled and deactivated at any time, though if you use email messages for critical matters, it is better to use it, since no records of the e-mails will be kept on the server in case the option is not enabled. In case you determine that you do not need forwarding any longer, it takes simply a mouse click to disable it.

E-mail Forwarding in Semi-dedicated Servers

For people with a semi-dedicated server from our company, it will take only a few mouse clicks in the Email Manager area of your Hepsia Hosting Control Panel to forward the emails set up on our end to a third-party address. In the same area you will additionally be able to observe how many of your email addresses are forwarded and where the inbound e-mails are sent. It is possible to activate or deactivate a forwarding account at any time and throughout the process you may as well choose if a copy of the messages has to be maintained on our servers or not. Even if this option isn't a necessity, it's handy since you will get a backup copy of the messages on our end in case that something happens with the third-party mailbox. Even if they've got a short-term issue, you risk losing emails as when our server gets and forwards an email, nothing at all will be maintained on our end unless you selected a backup to be saved.
