Discover more about e-mail forwarding, the way it operates as well as in which instances it is useful to get it enabled.
The term e-mail forwarding refers to a message being forwarded from a receiving address towards a third-party address which isn't listed as a recipient. For example, a client sends an e-mail from their private mail box to firstname.lastname@example.org and as far as they are involved, it is the single recipient. If there's an active forwarding, the email could be sent to email@example.com, for instance, even though the customer never intended the message to be sent there and may not be aware about the presence of this mail box. There are numerous purposes for working with such forwarding. For example, if you've got a number of emails you're able to forward them all to a one email address, which will make keeping track of e-mails less difficult and will allow you to collect e-mails and respond quickly. The function may also be used in case a number of people should get a copy of an e-mail message sent to a general email address.
E-mail Forwarding in Shared Website Hosting
The Hepsia Control Panel, which comes with all of the shared website hosting
packages, will help you forward any email address inside the account to an alternative one effortlessly. This can be done either during the creation of a new email address or any time afterwards if you choose that you will need this function. During the process, you'll be able to consider if you need a duplicate of the e-mails to be maintained on the server. In this way, you'll have a backup and you'll prevent the probability to lose an e-mail message if the forwarding is to an outside address, that is momentarily unavailable. This feature can be enabled and deactivated whenever you want, and if you use e-mail for critical matters, it is best to use it, as no data of the e-mails will be kept on the server if the option is not active. If you decide that you do not need forwarding anymore, it will take just a mouse click to disable it.
E-mail Forwarding in Semi-dedicated Hosting
The feature-rich Email Manager tool in your Hepsia Hosting Control Panel, which comes with all of the Linux semi-dedicated hosting package
, will enable you to forward any email address that you create with the account to one or multiple other email address with only a number of mouse clicks. You'll be able to view a list of all of the email addresses that you've got, which of them are forwarded plus where they're forwarded to. This feature can be activated and deactivated at any time and you can furthermore select if a backup of the incoming email messages needs to be kept on our servers or not. Though this option is completely optional, it might be more convenient if you take advantage of it, as you will have a backup of your emails when there is some issue with the remote email server. Even if there's a temporary issue and no emails are lost on our servers, you might still not receive a forwarded message if it was relayed by our servers within the downtime.
