The term e-mail forwarding describes an e-mail being forwarded from a recipient address to a third-party address that is not listed as a recipient. For instance, a customer sends out an email from their private 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 e-mail can be sent to owner@domain.com, for instance, although the customer never meant the e-mail to be sent there and may not be aware about the presence of this mail box. There are different purposes for making use of such forwarding. For instance, if you've many e-mail addresses it is easy to forward each of them to a one mailbox, which will make keeping track of emails simpler and allows you to collect emails and respond timely. The function can also be used in case a number of people should get a copy of an e-mail message delivered to a general mailbox.

E-mail Forwarding in Cloud Website Hosting

If you have a cloud website hosting plan with us and you set up e-mail addresses in your account, you'll be able to forward it with only a few clicks to another address of your preference. The option can be enabled when you create a brand new email address or at any time later and disabled just as easily any time you change your mind. This is done with the Hepsia Hosting Control Panel where you can manage your account. Additionally, you will have the option to decide whether a duplicate of the incoming emails will stay on our servers or not. The main advantage of this feature is that you will always have a backup on your end if something occurs with the other email address or if perhaps it's not active for reasons unknown during the time an e-mail message is forwarded. In case the option is not active, an e-mail will be received, forwarded and removed from our servers regardless of whether the remote email is working or not, so it is usually a wise decision to have it active just to be prepared.

E-mail Forwarding in Semi-dedicated Servers

For people with a semi-dedicated server from us, it will take you simply a few mouse clicks inside the Email Manager area of your Hepsia Hosting Control Panel to forward any of the e-mail addresses set up on our system to a third-party address. Inside the very same section you will also have the ability to observe how many of your email addresses are forwarded and exactly where the inbound emails are going. It is easy to activate or disable a forwarding account whenever you want and throughout the process you may also decide whether a copy of the email messages has to be kept in our system or not. Although this option isn't a must have, it's practical since you will get a backup of the emails on our end in case that anything happens with the third-party email address. Even when they have just a momentary problem, you run the risk of losing e-mail messages as the moment our server gets and forwards an e-mail, absolutely nothing will be maintained on our end if you haven’t chosen a backup to be maintained.
