What's e-mail forwarding? Just how does it function? In what situations is it particularly helpful?
The term e-mail forwarding describes an email message being forwarded from a receiving address towards a third-party address that isn't mentioned as a recipient. For example, a customer sends out an e-mail from their private mailbox to email@example.com and as much as they're concerned, this is the single receiver. When there is an active forwarding, the email can be forwarded to firstname.lastname@example.org, for instance, although the customer in no way intended the e-mail to be sent there and might not be aware of the existence of this mailbox. There are various reasons for making use of such forwarding. For instance, if you've got many e-mail addresses you can forward each of them to a sole mailbox, which will make checking e-mails less difficult and allows you to get messages and respond quickly. The function can also be used if a number of people should get a copy of an e-mail message delivered to a standard mailbox.
E-mail Forwarding in Shared Web Hosting
The Hepsia Control Panel, that is provided with all our shared web hosting
packages, will allow you to forward any email address inside the account to a second one easily. This can be done either throughout the creation of a new mailbox or any time later if you choose that you'll need this function. During the process, you are able to decide if you need a duplicate of the messages to be maintained on the server. This way, you will have a backup and you'll prevent the possibility to lose an e-mail message if the forwarding is to an external address, that is momentarily inaccessible. This option can be activated and deactivated whenever you want, but if you use emails for essential matters, it is better to use it, because no records of the email messages will be maintained on the server if the option is not active. In case you determine that you don't need forwarding anymore, it takes simply a click to disable it.
E-mail Forwarding in Semi-dedicated Hosting
For people with a semi-dedicated server
from our company, it will take you simply a few mouse clicks inside the Email Manager area of your Hepsia Hosting Control Panel to forward any of the e-mail addresses created on our server to a third-party e-mail address. In the same section you will also have the ability to observe how many of your email addresses are forwarded and exactly where the inbound e-mails are sent. It is possible to activate or disable a forwarding account whenever you want and throughout the process you may also decide if a backup of the messages has to be maintained in our system or not. Although this option is not a requirement, it is quite helpful as you will get a backup copy of the emails on our end in the event that something happens with the third-party mailbox. Even if they have only a temporary issue, you risk losing e-mails as the moment our system gets and forwards an e-mail, absolutely nothing will be stored on our end if you haven’t selected a copy to be maintained.
