The term e-mail forwarding refers to an email message being forwarded from a recipient address towards a third-party address that's not mentioned as a recipient. For example, a customer sends an email from their personal mail box to support@domain.com and as far as they are concerned, this is the single recipient. When there is an active forwarding, the email might be sent to owner@domain.com, for example, although the customer in no way intended the message to be sent there and might not be aware of the presence of this mail box. There are various purposes for applying such forwarding. For example, if you've got a number of e-mail addresses you can forward them all to a single email address, which can make checking emails less difficult and will allow you to get emails and respond to them quickly. The function could also be used in case a number of people should receive a copy of an electronic message sent to a standard mailbox.

E-mail Forwarding in Website Hosting

It is simple to set up forwarding for any e-mail address configured inside a website hosting account with our company. You can do this either while you create a new e-mail address using your Hepsia Hosting Control Panel, or whenever you want later as the forwarding can be activated and disabled for every current mailbox with only a couple of mouse clicks. It's also possible to decide if a copy of the inbound emails will be kept on our servers, a really useful option. This can be a fail-safe in case that the remote mailbox is not accessible for some reason, not mentioning that you'll have always a copy of all your messages. When this feature is not enabled for a given e-mail address on our end, an inbound message will be received and sent forward, so no record of it will stay on the server. If the remote email address is down for the moment, you will lose this e-mail.

E-mail Forwarding in Semi-dedicated Servers

The feature-rich Email Manager interface inside the Hepsia Hosting Control Panel, which will come with all of the semi-dedicated server, will let you forward any email you set up with the account to one particular or several different addresses with just a couple of mouse clicks. You'll have the ability to see a listing of all email addresses you have, those that are forwarded plus exactly where they are forwarded to. This option can be enabled and disabled at any moment and you can now also decide on if a backup of the incoming e-mails ought to be kept on our servers or not. Although this option is optional, it could be more convenient if you take advantage of it, as you will get a backup of the e-mails if there's some kind of problem with the remote mail server. Even when there is a momentary issue and no email messages are lost on our servers, you might still not get a forwarded message in case it was sent by our servers within the downtime.
