The term email forwarding refers to an email being forwarded from a receiving address towards a third-party address that isn't mentioned as a receiver. For instance, a customer sends out an e-mail from their private mailbox to email@example.com and as much as they are concerned, this is actually the only recipient. When there is an active forwarding, the message could be sent to firstname.lastname@example.org, for instance, although the customer in no way meant the message to be sent there and might not be aware about the presence of this mailbox. There are several purposes for applying such forwarding. For example, if you have various email addresses you're able to forward them all to a single mailbox, which will make checking emails easier and will allow you to get emails and respond in a timely manner. The feature can also be used if a number of people should get a copy of an email message sent to a standard email address.
E-mail Forwarding in Cloud Hosting
The Hepsia Control Panel, which comes with all of the cloud hosting
packages, will help you to forward any e-mail in the account to another one without any difficulty. You can do this either throughout the creation of a new email address or at any time later if you choose that you need this feature. During the process, you are able to choose if you prefer a backup of the e-mails to be maintained on the server. In this way, you'll have a backup and you'll steer clear of the probability to lose an e-mail if the forwarding is to an external address, which can be briefly inaccessible. This option can be enabled and disabled at any time, though if you use e-mails for important matters, it is better to use it, as no records of the emails are kept on the server in case the option is not active. If you decide that you don't need forwarding any longer, it takes just a click to disable it.
E-mail Forwarding in Semi-dedicated Hosting
If you have a semi-dedicated server
from our company, it will take you only a couple of mouse clicks inside the Email Manager area of your Hepsia Hosting Control Panel to forward the email addresses configured on our server to a third-party e-mail address. Inside the very same section you will additionally be able to see how many of your email addresses are forwarded and where the incoming e-mails are sent. You're able to activate or disable a forwarding account whenever you want and during the process you may as well decide if a backup copy of the e-mails has to be maintained in our system or not. Although this feature isn't a necessity, it is valuable since you will have a backup of the emails on our end in the event that something occurs with the third-party mailbox. Even when they've got only a temporary issue, you run the risk of losing email messages as the moment our server receives and forwards an e-mail, absolutely nothing will be stored on our end unless you selected a copy to be saved.
