The term e-mail forwarding describes a message being forwarded from a receiving address to a third-party address which isn't listed as a recipient. For instance, a customer sends an e-mail from their private mailbox to support@domain.com and as much as they are concerned, this is actually the single recipient. When there is an active forwarding, the e-mail can be forwarded to owner@domain.com, for example, even though the customer never intended the e-mail to be sent there and might not be aware of the existence of this mailbox. There are several purposes for using such forwarding. For instance, if you've many emails you're able to forward each of them to a sole mailbox, which will make monitoring email messages less difficult and will permit you to receive e-mails and respond in a timely manner. The function may also be used if a number of individuals should get a copy of an e-mail message delivered to a general email address.

E-mail Forwarding in Shared Hosting

It is really easy to set up forwarding for every e-mail created inside a shared hosting account from us. This can be accomplished either when you set up a new mailbox in your Hepsia Hosting Control Panel, or any time later since the forwarding can be activated and deactivated for every current email address with a couple of mouse clicks. It is also possible to choose if a backup of the incoming messages will be maintained on our servers, which is a very valuable option. This can be a fail-safe if the remote email address is not accessible for whatever reason, not mentioning that you will always have a copy of all messages. When this feature is not activated for a specific e-mail address on our end, an incoming email will be received and sent forward, so zero record of it will stay on our server. If the remote mailbox is down temporarily, you'll lose this e-mail.

E-mail Forwarding in Semi-dedicated Servers

The feature-rich Email Manager tool inside the Hepsia Hosting Control Panel, which comes with all our semi-dedicated server, will help you forward any email that you make in the account to one or multiple additional addresses with only a couple of mouse clicks. You'll be capable to see a number of all mailboxes you have, those that are forwarded and exactly where they are forwarded to. E-mail forwarding can be activated and disabled whenever you want and you can additionally decide on whether a copy of the inbound e-mails should be kept on our system or not. Even though this option is not essential, it may be far easier once you take advantage of it, as you will get a backup of your emails if there's some problem with the remote email server. Regardless of whether there's a short-term issue and no email messages are lost on our end, you might still not get a forwarded e-mail in case it was sent by our servers throughout the downtime.
