The term e-mail forwarding describes an email message being forwarded from a receiving address towards a third-party address that is not mentioned as a recipient. For instance, a customer sends out an email from their personal mailbox to support@domain.com and as far as they are concerned, this is actually the only recipient. If there is an active forwarding, the e-mail may be forwarded to owner@domain.com, for instance, even though the customer in no way meant the email to be sent there and might not be aware about the presence of this mail box. There are various reasons for using such forwarding. For instance, if you've various email addresses you can forward each of them to a single mailbox, which can make keeping track of emails less difficult and allows you to receive messages and respond to them in a timely manner. The feature may also be used if a number of people should receive a copy of an email message delivered to a standard mailbox.
E-mail Forwarding in Cloud Hosting
The Hepsia Control Panel, which is provided with all of our cloud hosting packages, will allow you to forward any e-mail in the account to another one easily. This can be done either throughout the creation of a brand new mailbox or any time later if you decide that you'll need this function. During the process, you'll be able to decide if you prefer a copy of the emails to be maintained on the server. In this way, you'll have a backup and you will prevent the probability to lose an e-mail message if the forwarding is to an external address, which can be briefly inaccessible. This option can be enabled and disabled at any moment, though if you use e-mail for essential matters, it is advisable to use it, because no records of the emails will be kept on the server in case the option is not enabled. If you decide that you do not need forwarding anymore, it will take simply a mouse click to deactivate it.
E-mail Forwarding in Semi-dedicated Hosting
Using a semi-dedicated server package through our company, it requires a few mouse clicks to forward one of your emails managed inside the account to any third-party email address. It will be possible to achieve this in the feature-rich Email Manager section of the Hepsia Hosting Control Panel and during the process you can also decide if a copy of your emails must be kept on our servers or not. The aforementioned feature is optional, yet helpful since you will get a backup of your inbound e-mails, so regardless of whether something happens with the other email address, you'll not lose any data. You are able to activate or deactivate the forwarding for any email address at any moment and forward the emails to a number of email addresses if you would like. You'll be able to see a listing of all mailboxes that are being forwarded and exactly where the e-mails are being sent to.
