The term e-mail forwarding describes an e-mail being forwarded from a receiving address to a third-party address that isn't listed as a receiver. For instance, a customer sends out an email from their private mailbox to and as far as they are concerned, this is actually the only receiver. If there is an active forwarding, the email might be sent to, for instance, even though the customer never intended the e-mail to be sent there and may not be aware about the existence of this mail box. There are various purposes for applying such forwarding. For instance, if you've a number of e-mail addresses you are able to forward them all to a sole mailbox, which will make monitoring email messages simpler and will allow you to get e-mails and respond to them promptly. The function may also be used if a number of people should get 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 set up email addresses in your account, you'll be able to forward it with no more than a few mouse clicks to any other address of your choosing. The option can be enabled when you create a brand new email address or any time afterwards and deactivated just as easily in case you change your mind. This can be done through the Hepsia Hosting Control Panel in which you will control your account. You'll have the option to choose if a copy of the incoming messages will stay on our servers or not. The main advantage of this feature is basically that you will always have a backup on your server if anything occurs with the other email address or if it isn't active for whatever reason at the time an e-mail message is forwarded. In case the option is not enabled, a message will be received, forwarded and deleted from our system even if the remote e-mail is functioning or not, so it is actually a good idea to have it enabled just to be on the safe side.

E-mail Forwarding in Semi-dedicated Hosting

For people with a semi-dedicated server from our company, you'll need only a few clicks in the Email Manager section of your Hepsia Hosting Control Panel to forward any of the email addresses set up on our server to a third-party address. In the same area you will additionally have the ability to observe how many of your mailboxes are forwarded and exactly where the incoming messages are going. It is possible to enable or disable a forwarding account at any time and during the process you can also choose whether a backup copy of the messages has to be maintained on our servers or not. Even though this option isn't a must have, it's very practical since you will have a copy of the messages on our end just in case that something occurs with the third-party mailbox. Even when they've got a short-term issue, you risk losing emails as once our system receives and forwards an e-mail message, nothing will be kept on our end unless you selected a copy to be kept.
