The term email forwarding describes an email being forwarded from a receiving address to a third-party address that isn't listed as a receiver. For example, a customer sends out an email from their private mailbox to support@domain.com and as far as they're concerned, it is the single receiver. When there is an active forwarding, the email could be sent to owner@domain.com, for example, although the customer never intended the message to be sent there and may not be aware of the existence of this mail box. There are numerous purposes for applying such forwarding. For example, if you have various email addresses you'll be able to forward each of them to a sole mailbox, which can make monitoring emails simpler and allows you to get messages and respond timely. The function can also be used in case a number of individuals should receive a copy of an e-mail message delivered to a standard mailbox.

E-mail Forwarding in Cloud Website Hosting

It really is simple to configure forwarding for any e-mail address configured in a cloud website hosting account from our company. This can be achieved either while you make a new e-mail address via your Hepsia Hosting Control Panel, or whenever you want in the future since the forwarding can be activated and disabled for every existing email address with just a few clicks. It's also possible to choose if a backup copy of the incoming e-mails will be kept on our servers, which is a really handy feature. This will be a fail-safe if the remote email address is not accessible for some cause, not mentioning that you will always have a copy of all your e-mails. If this option is not enabled for a specific e-mail on our end, an inbound message will be received and sent forward, so zero record of it will stay on our server. If the remote email address is down for the moment, you will lose this email.

E-mail Forwarding in Semi-dedicated Hosting

For people with a semi-dedicated server from our company, it will take you a few clicks in the Email Manager part of your Hepsia Hosting Control Panel to forward the email addresses created on our system to a third-party address. In the same area you will additionally have the ability to see how many of your mailboxes are forwarded and where the incoming e-mails are sent. You can activate or deactivate a forwarding account at any time and during the process you could also decide if a backup of the emails needs to be maintained on our servers or not. Although this option is not a requirement, it is quite valuable as you will have a backup copy of the messages on our end in case that something occurs with the third-party email address. Even when they've got a short-term problem, you run the risk of losing emails as when our system gets and forwards an e-mail, nothing will be maintained on our end if you haven’t selected a backup to be saved.
