Learn more about e-mail forwarding, what it does as well as in which cases it is helpful to have it activated.
If you have an e-mail and you activate forwarding for it, all of the inbound e-mails will be sent to a third-party email address of your preference. The sender will not be aware of this and he will be sending the e-mail just to the initial address. This kind of feature is effective if you have several websites, each with a separate e-mail address for contact, for example. By forwarding all e-mails to just one e-mail, it will be easier for you to monitor and not overlook an e-mail message as you have overlooked to check on a given e-mail. If you manage an enterprise, you are able to use this feature to check the communication received by different divisions. An additional benefit is that it is possible to use an official address for various reasons, let’s say firstname.lastname@example.org, and you can get all of the e-mail messages sent to it inside your personal mailbox. You can also forward e-mail messages from one e-mail to numerous ones, in case a number of people should be involved with the email conversation.
E-mail Forwarding in Hosting
It is easy to set up forwarding for any email configured in a hosting
account from our company. This can be done either while you set up a brand new e-mail address through your Hepsia Hosting Control Panel, or at any time in the future because the forwarding may be enabled and disabled for any current email address with a couple of clicks. You can also decide if a backup copy of the inbound e-mails will be kept on our servers, a pretty handy option. This can be a fail-safe in case that the remote mailbox is not available for whatever cause, not mentioning that you will always have a backup of all of the emails. When this feature is not activated for a given email address on our end, an incoming e-mail will be received and sent forward, so absolutely no record of it will remain on the server. When the remote mailbox is inaccessible for the moment, you'll lose this message.
E-mail Forwarding in Semi-dedicated Hosting
If you have a semi-dedicated server
from us, it will take you just a couple of mouse clicks in the Email Manager section of your Hepsia Hosting Control Panel to forward the email addresses set up on our end to a third-party e-mail address. In the exact same area you will also have the ability to see how many of your mailboxes are forwarded and where the inbound e-mails are going. It is possible to enable or disable a forwarding account at any time and throughout the process you can also choose if a backup copy of the emails should be maintained on our servers or not. Even if this feature is not a necessity, it is quite handy as you will get a backup copy of the emails on our end in case that anything occurs with the third-party mailbox. Even when they have simply a short-term problem, you run the risk of losing e-mails as the moment our system receives and forwards a message, nothing at all will be stored on our end if you haven’t selected a copy to be saved.
