The term e-mail forwarding describes an e-mail message being forwarded from a receiving address to a third-party address that isn't mentioned as a recipient. For example, a customer sends an email from their private mail box to support@domain.com and as much as they are involved, this is actually the only receiver. If there's an active forwarding, the message can be sent to owner@domain.com, for example, although the customer never intended the email to be sent there and might not be aware about the existence of this mail box. There are different purposes for making use of such forwarding. For instance, if you've got a number of email addresses you'll be able to forward them all to a sole mail box, which can make monitoring e-mails less difficult and will permit you to collect e-mails and respond to them promptly. The function may also be used if a number of individuals should receive a copy of an electronic message sent to a general mailbox.

E-mail Forwarding in Shared Website Hosting

It is really very easy to create forwarding for any email created in a shared website hosting account with us. You can do this either while you make a brand new mailbox using your Hepsia Hosting Control Panel, or at any time later because the forwarding may be activated and disabled for every active mailbox with a couple of mouse clicks. You can also choose if a copy of the incoming messages will be maintained on our servers, a very handy feature. This will be a fail-safe whenever the remote email address is not available for some reason, not mentioning that you will have always a copy of all your emails. When this option is not activated for a given e-mail address on our end, an inbound email will be received and sent forward, so no record of it will stay on our server. If the remote mailbox is unavailable temporarily, you will lose this email.

E-mail Forwarding in Semi-dedicated Servers

Using a semi-dedicated server plan from us, it requires just a couple of mouse clicks to forward any email addresses hosted inside the account to a third-party mailbox. It will be possible to get this done through the feature-rich Email Manager area of the Hepsia Hosting Control Panel and throughout the task you could also choose if a copy of your e-mails should be maintained on our servers or not. The last feature is optional, but useful because you will get a backup of your inbound e-mails, so regardless of whether anything happens with the other email address, you won't lose any data. You'll be able to enable or deactivate the forwarding for just about any mailbox at any moment and forward the messages to many addresses if you wish. You'll be capable to view a listing of all mailboxes that are now being forwarded and exactly where the email messages are being sent to.
