The term email forwarding refers to an email message being forwarded from a receiving address towards a third-party address that's not mentioned as a receiver. For instance, a client sends out an email from their personal mailbox to support@domain.com and as much as they're involved, this is the only receiver. If there's an active forwarding, the e-mail may be forwarded to owner@domain.com, for instance, even though the customer in no way intended the e-mail to be sent there and may not be aware of the presence of this mailbox. There are several purposes for applying such forwarding. For example, if you have several email addresses you can forward all of them to a sole mail box, which can make keeping track of emails less difficult and will allow you to receive emails and respond timely. The feature can also be used in case a number of individuals should get a copy of an electronic message delivered to a standard email address.

E-mail Forwarding in Hosting

It is really easy to create forwarding for every email address created inside a hosting account from us. This can be achieved either while you make a new email address in your Hepsia Hosting Control Panel, or at any moment later since the forwarding may be enabled and deactivated for every existing mailbox with a couple of mouse clicks. It's also possible to choose if a copy of the inbound messages will be kept on our servers, a pretty practical feature. This can be a fail-safe whenever the remote email address is not accessible for whatever reason, not mentioning that you will also have a copy of all your messages. When this option is not enabled for a given e-mail on our end, an incoming message will be received and sent forward, so absolutely no record of it will stay on our server. If the remote email address is inaccessible temporarily, you will lose this e-mail.

E-mail Forwarding in Semi-dedicated Hosting

If you have a semi-dedicated server from us, it will take only a couple of mouse clicks inside the Email Manager section of your Hepsia Hosting Control Panel to forward the email addresses configured on our system to a third-party e-mail address. Inside the very same area you will also have the ability to see how many of your mailboxes are forwarded and exactly where the incoming messages are going. You can activate or deactivate a forwarding account whenever you want and during the process you may also choose if a backup of the emails has to be kept on our servers or not. Even if this option isn't a necessity, it's helpful because you will get a backup of the messages on our end in case that something occurs with the third-party email address. Even when they have a short-term issue, you risk losing e-mail messages as the moment our server receives and forwards an email, nothing at all will be maintained on our end unless you chosen a backup to be stored.
