The term e-mail forwarding describes an e-mail message being forwarded from a recipient address to a third-party address that's not mentioned as a receiver. For example, a client sends out an email from their private mail box to firstname.lastname@example.org and as far as they're concerned, this is actually the single recipient. When there is an active forwarding, the e-mail might be forwarded to email@example.com, for example, although the customer never meant the email to be sent there and might not be aware about the presence of this mail box. There are different purposes for working with such forwarding. For instance, if you've got a number of email addresses you'll be able to forward them all to a sole mail box, which will make keeping track of email messages easier and will permit you to receive e-mails and respond on time. The feature can also be used in case a number of people should get a copy of an e mail message delivered to a general mail box.
E-mail Forwarding in Cloud Website Hosting
The Hepsia Control Panel, that comes with all of the cloud website hosting
plans, will help you to forward any email in the account to another one without difficulty. You can do this either during the creation of a new mailbox or whenever you want later if you decide that you require this feature. During the process, you will be able to decide if you need a backup of the emails to be kept on the server. In this way, you'll have a backup and you will avoid the probability to lose an e-mail if the forwarding is to an outside address, that's briefly inaccessible. This option can be activated and deactivated at any moment, but if you use emails for critical matters, it is far better to use it, because no records of the emails are maintained on the server in case the option is not active. In case you decide that you don't need forwarding any longer, it will take only a click to disable it.
E-mail Forwarding in Semi-dedicated Hosting
The feature-rich Email Manager tool in the Hepsia Hosting Control Panel, which comes with all of our Linux semi-dedicated package
, will let you forward any email address you set up with the account to one or several other email address with just a few mouse clicks. You will additionally have the ability to view a list of all of the email addresses that you have, those that are forwarded and exactly where they are forwarded to. E-mail forwarding can be activated and disabled at any time and you can additionally decide on whether a backup of the incoming emails needs to be kept on our system or not. Even though this feature is not required, it may be more convenient once you make the most of it, as you will have a backup of your emails when there is some trouble with the remote email server. Even when there is a momentary issue and no emails are lost on our servers, you might still not receive a forwarded e-mail in case it was sent by our servers during the downtime.
