The term email forwarding refers to an e-mail message being forwarded from a receiving address to a third-party address that's not mentioned as a recipient. For example, a client sends an e-mail from their personal mailbox to and as much as they are concerned, it is the single recipient. When there is an active forwarding, the e-mail can be sent to, for example, even though the customer never meant the e-mail to be sent there and may not be aware of the existence of this mail box. There are several reasons for working with such forwarding. For example, if you've a number of email addresses you'll be able to forward them all to a sole mailbox, which can make keeping track of emails less difficult and allows you to get messages and respond to them promptly. The feature may also be used if a number of people should receive a copy of an electronic message sent to a standard mailbox.

E-mail Forwarding in Cloud Hosting

In case you have a cloud hosting plan with us and you create email addresses in your account, you will be able to forward it with no more than a few clicks to any other address of your choice. The feature can be enabled whenever you set up a brand new mailbox or whenever you want later and disabled just as quickly in case you change your mind. This can be done through the Hepsia Hosting Control Panel in which you can handle your account. You will also have the option to choose if a backup of the incoming messages will stay on our servers or not. The advantage of this feature is that you will always have a copy on your end if anything happens with the other email address or if perhaps it is not active for whatever reason during the time a message is forwarded. In case the feature not enabled, an e-mail will be received, forwarded and deleted from our system even if the remote e-mail address is working or not, so it can be quite a wise decision to have it enabled just to be prepared.

E-mail Forwarding in Semi-dedicated Hosting

If you have a semi-dedicated server through us, it will take only a couple of clicks inside the Email Manager part of your Hepsia Hosting Control Panel to forward the emails created on our system to a third-party address. Inside the very same section you will additionally be able to see how many of your mailboxes are forwarded and exactly where the inbound messages are going. You're able to enable or disable a forwarding account whenever you want and during the process you can also decide whether a copy of the messages should be maintained in our system or not. Even though this feature is not a necessity, it's helpful because you will have a backup copy of the emails on our end just in case that something occurs with the third-party email address. Even when they've got only a momentary problem, you run the risk of losing e-mails as once our server gets and forwards an e-mail message, absolutely nothing will be kept on our end if you haven’t selected a copy to be kept.
