The term email forwarding describes an email message being forwarded from a receiving address to a third-party address which isn't mentioned as a recipient. For example, a client sends an e-mail from their private mail box to support@domain.com and as far as they are concerned, this is the only receiver. If there's an active forwarding, the message could be sent to owner@domain.com, for example, although the customer never meant the email to be sent there and may not be aware of the existence of this mailbox. There are various purposes for using such forwarding. For instance, if you've got several email addresses you are able to forward them all to a one mail box, which will make monitoring e-mails less difficult and will allow you to collect messages and respond to them quickly. The function can also be used in case a number of people should receive a copy of an e-mail message sent to a general mailbox.

E-mail Forwarding in Cloud Website Hosting

The Hepsia Control Panel, which is provided with all our cloud website hosting plans, will let you forward any email address inside the account to a second one without any difficulty. You can do this either during the creation of a new email address or at any time later if you choose that you'll need this function. During the process, you are able to consider if you want a copy of the emails to be maintained on the server. This way, you will have a backup and you'll prevent the possibility to lose an e-mail if the forwarding is to an exterior address, which can be momentarily inaccessible. This option can be activated and deactivated at any moment, and when you use email messages for important matters, it is far better to use it, since no records of the e-mails will be kept on the server in case the option is not enabled. In case you decide that you do not need forwarding any more, it will take a click to deactivate it.

E-mail Forwarding in Semi-dedicated Hosting

Using a semi-dedicated server package through our company, it takes a few clicks to forward any of your email addresses located in the account to any third-party mailbox. You are able to get this done in the feature-rich Email Manager part of the Hepsia Hosting Control Panel and during the process you could also choose if a backup of your e-mails should be maintained on our servers or not. The aforementioned feature is optional, but rather helpful because you will have a backup of your inbound e-mails, so whether or not anything happens with the other email address, you'll not lose any info. You can activate or deactivate the forwarding for every email address at any moment and forward the emails to a number of email addresses if you wish. You will also have the ability to check out a listing of all of the mailboxes that are forwarded and exactly where the emails are being sent to.
