The term e-mail forwarding describes an email being forwarded from a receiving address to a third-party address that is not listed as a recipient. For instance, a client sends out an email from their private mailbox to and as far as they are concerned, this is the single recipient. If there's an active forwarding, the message could be sent to, for instance, even though the customer in no way meant the email to be sent there and may not be aware about the existence of this mailbox. There are several reasons for working with such forwarding. For example, if you've several email addresses it is easy to forward all of them to a single email address, which can make monitoring emails easier and will allow you to receive messages and respond in a timely manner. The function can also be used in case a number of individuals should get a copy of an e-mail message sent to a general email address.

E-mail Forwarding in Cloud Website Hosting

It is easy to configure forwarding for every e-mail address set up inside a cloud website hosting account from us. This can be done either while you create a new mailbox using your Hepsia Hosting Control Panel, or whenever you want in the future because the forwarding may be enabled and disabled for every existing mailbox with a few clicks. It's also possible to choose if a backup copy of the inbound e-mails will be maintained on our servers, a very handy option. This will be a fail-safe if the remote mailbox is not available for whatever reason, not mentioning that you will also have a backup of all of the e-mails. When this option is not enabled for a given email on our end, an incoming email will be received and sent forward, so absolutely no record of it will remain on the server. If the remote mailbox is down for the moment, you'll lose this e-mail.

E-mail Forwarding in Semi-dedicated Servers

For people with a semi-dedicated server from our company, you will need simply a few mouse clicks in the Email Manager part of your Hepsia Hosting Control Panel to forward the emails set up on our server to a third-party e-mail address. In the exact same section you will additionally have the ability to see how many of your email addresses are forwarded and exactly where the inbound e-mails are sent. You're able to enable or deactivate a forwarding account whenever you want and during the process you may also decide if a copy of the emails should be maintained in our system or not. Although this feature isn't a necessity, it's very valuable since you will get a backup of the messages on our end in case that something happens with the third-party email address. Even when they have simply a momentary problem, you risk losing e-mail messages as the moment our server receives and forwards an email, absolutely nothing will be stored on our end if you haven’t selected a copy to be kept.
