The term e-mail forwarding describes an e-mail message being forwarded from a recipient address towards a third-party address which is not mentioned as a recipient. For example, a customer sends an email from their private mailbox to support@domain.com and as far as they're involved, it is the single recipient. If there's an active forwarding, the message may be sent to owner@domain.com, for instance, although the customer never intended the e-mail to be sent there and may not be aware of the presence of this mailbox. There are different reasons for using such forwarding. For example, if you've got a number of email addresses it is possible to forward each of them to a single email address, which will make checking email messages less difficult and will permit you to receive e-mails and respond quickly. The function could also be used if a number of people should get a copy of an electronic message sent to a standard mail box.

E-mail Forwarding in Website Hosting

It really is very easy to create forwarding for every email created in a website hosting account with us. You can do this either while you set up a new email address through your Hepsia Hosting Control Panel, or at any moment afterwards as the forwarding can be activated and disabled for any existing email address with a few clicks. It is also possible to decide if a backup of the incoming messages will be maintained on our servers, which is a pretty valuable option. This can be a fail-safe in case that the remote email address is not available for whatever cause, not mentioning that you'll have always a copy of all emails. If this feature is not activated for a given e-mail address on our end, an inbound email will be received and sent forward, so absolutely no record of it will stay on the server. In case the remote mailbox is inaccessible temporarily, you will lose this message.

E-mail Forwarding in Semi-dedicated Servers

The feature-rich Email Manager tool in your Hepsia Hosting Control Panel, which will come with all our semi-dedicated server, will enable you to forward any e-mail address that you create with the account to one or numerous different email address with no more than a few mouse clicks. Additionally, you will be able to view a list of all email addresses you have, those that are forwarded and also exactly where they are forwarded to. Email forwarding can be enabled and deactivated at any moment and you can now also select should a copy of the incoming email messages must be maintained on our servers or not. Though this option is completely optional, it could be far easier once you take advantage of it, because you get a copy of your messages if there is some issue with the remote mail server. Even when there's a short-term issue and no email messages are lost on our end, you may still not get a forwarded e-mail if it was sent by our servers within the downtime.
