The term e-mail forwarding refers to an e-mail being forwarded from a receiving address towards a third-party address that's not listed as a recipient. For example, a customer sends an email from their personal mail box to support@domain.com and as much as they are involved, this is the single receiver. If there is an active forwarding, the email may be forwarded to owner@domain.com, for example, although the customer in no way intended the e-mail to be sent there and might not be aware about the presence of this mailbox. There are numerous purposes for applying such forwarding. For example, if you've various email addresses you can forward all of them to a sole email address, which can make checking e-mails easier and allows you to collect messages and respond to them on time. The feature can also be used in case a number of individuals should get a copy of an e-mail message delivered to a standard mailbox.

E-mail Forwarding in Hosting

The Hepsia Control Panel, that comes with all the hosting plans, will help you forward any e-mail address inside the account to another one easily. This can be done either during the creation of a brand new email address or at any time later if you decide that you want this feature. During the process, you are able to decide if you need a backup of the email messages to be maintained on the server. In this way, you will have a backup and you'll avoid the probability to lose an email if the forwarding is to an exterior address, that is temporarily unavailable. This feature can be enabled and disabled at any time, and if you use email messages for crucial matters, it is far better to use it, since no records of the e-mails will be maintained on the server when the option is not active. If you decide that you do not need forwarding any longer, it takes a click to disable it.

If you have a semi-dedicated server through our company, you'll need just a couple of mouse clicks in the Email Manager part of your Hepsia Hosting Control Panel to forward the emails configured on our server to a third-party address. In the exact same section you will also be able to see how many of your mailboxes are forwarded and where the inbound e-mails are going. You can enable or deactivate a forwarding account at any moment and during the process you may also decide if a backup of the email messages needs to be kept on our servers or not. Although this feature isn't a necessity, it is extremely practical because you will have a backup copy of the emails on our end in case that something happens with the third-party email address. Even if they've got only a temporary problem, you run the risk of losing e-mail messages as when our server gets and forwards an email, absolutely nothing will be kept on our end if you haven’t chosen a backup to be saved.
