The term email forwarding refers to an email message being forwarded from a receiving address towards a third-party address that isn't mentioned as a receiver. For example, a client sends an email from their personal mailbox to and as far as they're concerned, it is the only receiver. If there is an active forwarding, the message may be sent to, for example, even though the customer never meant the e-mail to be sent there and might not be aware of the presence of this mail box. There are various purposes for applying such forwarding. For instance, if you have many e-mail addresses you are able to forward them all to a single email address, which will make keeping track of emails less complicated and allows you to receive emails and respond to them quickly. The function could also be used in case a number of people should receive a copy of an email message sent to a standard email address.

E-mail Forwarding in Cloud Hosting

It really is simple to create forwarding for any email address configured in a cloud hosting account from us. You can do this either when you create a new e-mail address using your Hepsia Hosting Control Panel, or at any time afterwards since the forwarding can be enabled and disabled for every active mailbox with just a few mouse clicks. You can also choose if a copy of the inbound messages will be kept on our servers, a pretty useful feature. This will be a fail-safe if the remote email address is not accessible for some reason, not mentioning that you will also have a copy of all messages. When this feature is not enabled for a given e-mail on our end, an inbound message will be received and sent forward, so no record of it will remain on our server. When the remote email address is down temporarily, you will simply lose this email.

E-mail Forwarding in Semi-dedicated Hosting

For people with a semi-dedicated server from us, you'll need a few clicks in the Email Manager section of your Hepsia Hosting Control Panel to forward the e-mail addresses created on our end to a third-party address. In the exact same section you will additionally have the ability to observe how many of your email addresses are forwarded and where the inbound e-mails are going. You can activate or disable a forwarding account whenever you want and throughout the process you may also choose if a backup of the messages needs to be kept in our system or not. Although this feature isn't a must have, it's very useful because you will have a backup copy of the messages on our end just in case that anything happens with the third-party mailbox. Even if they have simply a momentary problem, you risk losing email messages as once our server gets and forwards an e-mail, nothing at all will be maintained on our end unless you selected a backup to be maintained.
