The term e-mail forwarding describes a message being forwarded from a receiving address towards a third-party address that's not listed as a recipient. For example, a client sends out an e-mail from their personal mail box to and as far as they're concerned, this is the single recipient. If there is an active forwarding, the message might be sent to, for example, even though the customer never intended the email to be sent there and might not be aware about the presence of this mail box. There are several purposes for making use of such forwarding. For example, if you have various emails you can forward them all to a sole email address, which can make keeping track of emails less difficult and will permit you to collect e-mails and respond to them on time. The feature may also be used in case a number of individuals should receive a copy of an email message delivered to a standard mailbox.

E-mail Forwarding in Hosting

It is really very easy to set up forwarding for virtually every email address configured in a hosting account from our company. This can be done either while you make a new e-mail address using your Hepsia Hosting Control Panel, or whenever you want afterwards because the forwarding can be activated and deactivated for every active email address with only a few mouse clicks. It is also possible to decide if a copy of the inbound messages will be kept on our servers, a very valuable feature. This can be a fail-safe whenever the remote mailbox is not accessible for whatever reason, not mentioning you will have always a copy of all your e-mails. If this feature is not enabled for a given email on our end, an inbound e-mail will be received and sent forward, so zero record of it will stay on the server. If the remote email address is inaccessible for the moment, you will simply lose this e-mail.

E-mail Forwarding in Semi-dedicated Servers

If you have a semi-dedicated server through us, you'll need a few mouse clicks inside the Email Manager section of your Hepsia Hosting Control Panel to forward any of the email addresses created on our system to a third-party e-mail address. In the exact same area you will also be able to observe how many of your mailboxes are forwarded and exactly where the incoming messages are sent. It is possible to activate or deactivate a forwarding account at any time and throughout the process you can also choose if a backup copy of the email messages needs to be kept in our system or not. Even though this feature isn't a must have, it is extremely handy as you will get a backup of the messages on our end in case that something occurs with the third-party mailbox. Even when they've got just a momentary issue, you risk losing emails as the moment our server gets and forwards a message, nothing at all will be maintained on our end unless you selected a backup to be maintained.
