Find out more on e-mail forwarding, how it works as well as in which circumstances it is beneficial to have it activated.
The term email forwarding refers to an email being forwarded from a recipient address to a third-party address that isn't listed as a receiver. For example, a client sends out an e-mail from their personal mailbox to email@example.com and as far as they are concerned, this is the single recipient. If there's an active forwarding, the e-mail may be sent to firstname.lastname@example.org, for example, even though the customer never intended the e-mail to be sent there and may not be aware of the presence of this mailbox. There are different reasons for working with such forwarding. For instance, if you have numerous e-mail addresses you can forward each of them to a one email address, which can make keeping track of e-mails easier and will permit you to receive emails and respond to them promptly. The function can also be used in case a number of individuals should get a copy of an email message delivered to a general mail box.
E-mail Forwarding in Shared Web Hosting
If you have a shared web hosting
plan with us and you create an e-mail address inside your account, you'll be able to forward it with only a couple of clicks to any other e-mail address of your preference. The feature can be enabled when you set up a brand new mailbox or any time later on and deactivated just as quickly in case you change your mind. This can be done through the Hepsia Hosting Control Panel in which you can control your account. Additionally, you will have the option to choose if a copy of the incoming e-mails will stay on our servers or not. The main benefit of this feature is that you will always have a backup on your server if something occurs with the other email address or if perhaps it isn't active for whatever reason at the time a message is forwarded. If the option is not active, an email will be received, forwarded and erased from our system no matter if the remote email is functioning or not, so it is usually a wise decision for it to be active just to be prepared.
E-mail Forwarding in Semi-dedicated Servers
Forwarding an e mail address hosted on our servers will be very straightforward if you have a semi-dedicated server
plan with us and it'll not take you more than several mouse clicks to set up. You can do this in the Emails section of the Hepsia Hosting Control Panel and you will be able to check the mailboxes that are being forwarded and where your emails will be sent with a glance. The option is enabled and disabled for any of the mailboxes inside your account. You can also enable or disable a useful feature we have - a backup of the e-mails being relayed through our system can remain on the server. In this way, you'll also have a backup of your incoming e-mails and you'll not have to be worried about losing any info. In case you keep this feature disabled, you risk losing email messages if there's an issue with the remote mailbox.
