The term email forwarding describes an email being forwarded from a recipient address towards a third-party address which isn't mentioned as a receiver. For example, a customer sends out an e-mail from their private mailbox to [email protected] and as much as they are involved, this is the only receiver. If there is an active forwarding, the e-mail could be sent to [email protected], for example, although the customer never intended the message to be sent there and may not be aware about the presence of this mailbox. There are several reasons for making use of such forwarding. For example, if you've got a number of e-mail addresses you can forward each of them to a sole mailbox, which can make keeping track of email messages easier and will permit you to receive e-mails and respond to them timely. The feature could also be used if a number of people should get a copy of an electronic message delivered to a general email address.

E-mail Forwarding in Shared Hosting

In case you have a shared hosting plan with us and you create email addresses in your account, you will be able to forward it with no more than a couple of clicks to any other e-mail address of your choice. The feature can be activated when you set up a brand new mailbox or at any time later and disabled just as easily any time you change your mind. This is done from the Hepsia Hosting Control Panel in which you can manage your account. You will also have the option to decide whether a duplicate of the inbound messages will remain on our servers or not. The advantage of this option is basically that you will always have a copy on your server if anything occurs with the other mailbox or maybe if it isn't active for reasons unknown during the time an e-mail is forwarded. When the feature not enabled, an email will be received, forwarded and removed from our servers regardless of whether the remote email address is operating or not, so it can be quite a good idea for it to be active just to be on the safe side.

E-mail Forwarding in Semi-dedicated Servers

If you have a semi-dedicated server through us, it will take a couple of clicks in the Email Manager part of your Hepsia Hosting Control Panel to forward the e-mails set up on our server to a third-party address. Inside the exact same section you will also be able to see how many of your email addresses are forwarded and where the inbound emails are sent. It is possible to enable or disable a forwarding account at any time and during the process you can also choose whether a copy of the email messages should be maintained in our system or not. Although this option isn't a necessity, it is quite helpful because you will get a backup of the emails on our end just in case that something occurs with the third-party mailbox. Even when they have just a momentary issue, you run the risk of losing emails as when our system receives and forwards an e-mail message, absolutely nothing will be stored on our end unless you chosen a copy to be kept.
