The term e-mail forwarding describes an email being forwarded from a receiving address to a third-party address which is not mentioned as a receiver. For instance, a customer sends out an e-mail from their personal mail box to support@domain.com and as far as they are involved, this is the single receiver. If there is an active forwarding, the message might be sent to owner@domain.com, for example, even though the customer in no way meant the message to be sent there and may not be aware about the presence of this mailbox. There are different reasons for working with such forwarding. For instance, if you have many email addresses you're able to forward all of them to a one mail box, which will make checking emails easier and allows you to receive messages and respond to them on time. The feature may also be used in case a number of individuals should receive a copy of an e mail message delivered to a general mail box.
E-mail Forwarding in Cloud Website Hosting
In case you have a cloud website hosting package with our company and you set up an e-mail address inside your account, you are able to forward it with only a couple of mouse clicks to any other address of your choice. The feature can be activated when you make a new email address or whenever you want later on and disabled just as quickly in case you change your mind. This can be done with the Hepsia Hosting Control Panel in which you can control your account. You'll have the option to decide if a copy of the inbound e-mails will remain on our servers or not. The main benefit of this option is that you will always have a backup on your server if anything occurs with the other mailbox or if perhaps it's not active for reasons unknown during the time an e-mail message is forwarded. In case the option is not enabled, a message will be received, forwarded and deleted from our system no matter if the remote e-mail address is working or not, so it generally is a wise decision for it to be active just to be on the safe side.
E-mail Forwarding in Semi-dedicated Servers
For people with a semi-dedicated server from us, it will take a few mouse clicks inside the Email Manager part of your Hepsia Hosting Control Panel to forward any of the email addresses configured on our system to a third-party e-mail address. Inside the very same area you will also have the ability to observe how many of your email addresses are forwarded and where the inbound emails are going. You're able to enable or deactivate a forwarding account at any moment and during the process you may also choose whether a backup of the emails has to be kept on our servers or not. Even if this feature isn't a must have, it is helpful as you will get a copy of the messages on our end in the event that something happens with the third-party mailbox. Even when they've got just a temporary issue, you risk losing email messages as once our server receives and forwards an e-mail message, absolutely nothing will be maintained on our end if you haven’t selected a backup to be stored.
