What's e-mail forwarding? How exactly does it work? In which instances is it extremely handy?
If you have an e-mail address and you activate forwarding for it, all of the inbound messages will be sent to a third-party mailbox that you pick. The email sender will not be aware of this and he will send the message just to the original address. This kind of feature is effective for people with a number of websites, each one with a different email address for contact, for instance. By forwarding all e-mails to just a single email address, it will be easier for you to keep track and never pass up a message because you have forgotten to check on a particular email address. If you have an enterprise, you’ll be able to employ this feature to monitor the e-mails received by various divisions. A further advantage is the fact that you are able to work with an official address for a number of needs, let’s say firstname.lastname@example.org, and you can get all emails sent to it inside your private mailbox. You can also forward messages from a single e-mail to a number of ones, if a number of individuals should be involved in the email communication.
E-mail Forwarding in Shared Web Hosting
In case you have a shared web hosting
plan with us and you create email addresses in your account, you'll be able to forward it with just a few clicks to another address of your choice. The option can be activated whenever you make a brand new email address or any time later and disabled just as easily in case you change your mind. This is done with the Hepsia Hosting Control Panel where you will manage your account. You'll have the option to decide whether a duplicate of the inbound emails will stay on our servers or not. The benefit of this feature is that you will always have a copy on your end if something happens with the other mailbox or if it isn't active for some reason during the time an e-mail message is forwarded. In case the feature not enabled, a message will be received, forwarded and deleted from our servers regardless of whether the remote email is working or not, so it generally is a good idea to have it enabled just to be on the safe side.
E-mail Forwarding in Semi-dedicated Hosting
For people with a semi-dedicated server
through our company, you will need just a couple of mouse clicks in the Email Manager section of your Hepsia Hosting Control Panel to forward any of the email addresses configured on our server to a third-party address. Inside the very same area you will additionally be able to see how many of your email addresses are forwarded and where the incoming emails are going. You can enable or disable a forwarding account at any moment and during the process you may also choose whether a backup copy of the emails has to be maintained on our servers or not. Although this feature isn't a requirement, it is extremely helpful because you will have a copy of the messages on our end in the event that anything happens with the third-party mailbox. Even if they have a momentary issue, you run the risk of losing e-mails as when our system gets and forwards an email, nothing will be kept on our end unless you selected a backup to be saved.
