The term e-mail forwarding refers to an email being forwarded from a recipient address to a third-party address that's not mentioned as a recipient. For instance, a customer sends an email from their private mailbox to support@domain.com and as far as they are involved, this is the only recipient. When there is an active forwarding, the e-mail could be forwarded to owner@domain.com, for instance, although the customer in no way meant the e-mail to be sent there and may not be aware of the existence of this mail box. There are various reasons for using such forwarding. For example, if you have many e-mail addresses you'll be able to forward all of them to a one mailbox, which can make monitoring emails simpler and will allow you to collect e-mails and respond to them promptly. The feature could also be used if a number of people should get a copy of an e mail message sent to a general email address.
E-mail Forwarding in Website Hosting
The Hepsia Control Panel, which is provided with all of the website hosting packages, will allow you to forward any e-mail in the account to another one with ease. You can do this either during the creation of a new mailbox or at any time later if you decide that you need this feature. During the process, you'll be able to choose if you want a copy of the e-mails to be maintained on the server. In this way, you'll have a backup and you'll prevent the probability to lose a message if the forwarding is to an exterior address, which is briefly inaccessible. This option can be enabled and disabled any time, though if you use e-mails for important matters, it is advisable to use it, since no data of the e-mails will be maintained on the server if the option is not active. Any time you determine that you do not need forwarding anymore, it takes only a click to disable it.
E-mail Forwarding in Semi-dedicated Hosting
If you have a semi-dedicated server from us, it will take you simply a couple of mouse clicks in the Email Manager part of your Hepsia Hosting Control Panel to forward any of the email addresses created on our end to a third-party address. Inside the very same area you will additionally be able to observe how many of your email addresses are forwarded and where the inbound e-mails are sent. It is easy to enable or deactivate a forwarding account at any moment and throughout the process you may also choose whether a copy of the messages has to be maintained in our system or not. Even if this feature isn't a necessity, it's very useful since you will have a copy of the emails on our end in case that anything happens with the third-party email address. Even if they have only a short-term issue, you run the risk of losing e-mails as when our server receives and forwards an e-mail message, nothing will be maintained on our end if you haven’t chosen a copy to be stored.
