The term email forwarding refers to an e-mail message being forwarded from a recipient address towards a third-party address which isn't listed as a recipient. For example, a customer sends out an email from their private mail box to and as much as they are involved, this is actually the single recipient. When there is an active forwarding, the message can be forwarded to, for instance, even though the customer never meant the e-mail to be sent there and might not be aware about the presence of this mail box. There are numerous reasons for making use of such forwarding. For instance, if you have various emails you'll be able to forward each of them to a one mailbox, which will make keeping track of email messages easier and allows you to receive emails and respond promptly. The feature can also be used if a number of people should get a copy of an e mail message sent to a standard mailbox.

E-mail Forwarding in Shared Web Hosting

If you have a shared web hosting plan with us and you set up e-mail addresses in your account, you are able to forward it with just a few clicks to any other address of your choice. The option can be enabled when you create a brand new mailbox or at any time later on and deactivated just as quickly any time you change your mind. This can be done with the Hepsia Hosting Control Panel where you can handle your account. Additionally, you will have the option to decide whether a backup of the incoming messages will stay on our servers or not. The advantage of this option is you will always have a copy on your server if anything occurs with the other email address or if it is not active for reasons unknown during the time an email message is forwarded. When the feature not active, a message will be received, forwarded and deleted from our servers regardless of whether the remote email address is functioning or not, so it might be a wise decision for it to be enabled just to be prepared.

E-mail Forwarding in Semi-dedicated Hosting

For people with a semi-dedicated server from us, it will take a few mouse clicks inside the Email Manager section of your Hepsia Hosting Control Panel to forward the e-mail addresses set up on our system to a third-party e-mail address. In the very same section you will also be able to observe how many of your mailboxes are forwarded and where the incoming messages are going. It is possible to activate or disable a forwarding account at any moment and during the process you may as well choose if a copy of the emails should be maintained on our servers or not. Although this option isn't a must have, it is quite practical as you will have a backup of the messages on our end in the event that anything happens with the third-party email address. Even if they've got only a short-term issue, you run the risk of losing e-mails as when our server gets and forwards an email, absolutely nothing will be kept on our end if you haven’t chosen a backup to be kept.
