The term e-mail forwarding refers to an email message being forwarded from a receiving address towards a third-party address that is not mentioned as a receiver. For instance, a client sends an e-mail from their personal mailbox to support@domain.com and as much as they're concerned, it is the only receiver. When there is an active forwarding, the message might be sent to owner@domain.com, for example, although the customer never meant the message to be sent there and may not be aware about the presence of this mail box. There are several reasons for making use of such forwarding. For example, if you have numerous emails you'll be able to forward all of them to a single email address, which can make checking email messages less complicated and will permit you to collect emails and respond to them quickly. The function 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 is really simple to configure forwarding for any email created in a cloud web hosting account with us. This can be done either while you create a new mailbox using your Hepsia Hosting Control Panel, or at any time afterwards as the forwarding can be activated and deactivated for every active email address with just a few mouse clicks. It's also possible to choose if a backup of the inbound e-mails will be kept on our servers, a pretty valuable feature. This will be a fail-safe in case that the remote mailbox is not available for whatever reason, not mentioning that you will have always a copy of all your messages. When this feature is not enabled for a given e-mail address on our end, an inbound e-mail will be received and sent forward, so no record of it will remain on the server. In case the remote mailbox is inaccessible temporarily, you will lose this message.

E-mail Forwarding in Semi-dedicated Hosting

If you have a semi-dedicated server from us, you will need just a few mouse clicks inside the Email Manager part of your Hepsia Hosting Control Panel to forward any of the email addresses created on our system to a third-party address. Inside the exact same section you will additionally have the ability to observe how many of your mailboxes are forwarded and exactly where the inbound emails are sent. It is easy to enable or disable a forwarding account at any time and throughout the process you may also decide if a backup of the e-mails needs to be kept on our servers or not. Even though this option is not a requirement, it is helpful because you will have a copy of the messages on our end in case that something happens with the third-party email address. Even if they have only a temporary issue, you run the risk of losing e-mail messages as when our system receives and forwards a message, nothing will be kept on our end unless you chosen a copy to be kept.
