Find out more about e-mail forwarding, how it works as well as in which cases it is helpful to have it enabled.
With the email forwarding activated for any specific e-mail address, all incoming email messages will be forwarded to a third-party address that you have selected even though the latter won't be in the list of recipients and the email sender will never be aware where their message will go. Feel free to use such a feature in case you have a number of email addresses because it will be far more convenient to get all incoming emails in one mailbox as an alternative to signing in and out of different ones constantly or setting up a number of mail boxes within an e-mail application. If you have a business or an organization, the e-mail forwarding is also a way to look at all e-mails obtained by numerous divisions for better coordination. It's also possible to make use of this characteristic the other way around - an e-mail sent to a standard mailbox can be forwarded to multiple people.
E-mail Forwarding in Website Hosting
The Hepsia Control Panel, that comes with all our website hosting
packages, will allow you to forward any e-mail address in the account to an alternative one with ease. This can be done either during the creation of a new mailbox or at any time afterwards in case you decide that you will need this function. During the process, you'll be able to decide if you need a duplicate of the emails to be kept on the server. In this way, you'll have a backup and you'll avoid the possibility to lose an email if the forwarding is to an external address, that's temporarily unavailable. This feature can be activated and disabled at any time, and if you use e-mail for important matters, it is far better to use it, as no data of the email messages will be maintained on the server when the option is not enabled. In case you determine that you do not need forwarding anymore, it takes a mouse click to deactivate it.
E-mail Forwarding in Semi-dedicated Servers
For people with a semi-dedicated server
through us, you'll need a couple of mouse clicks inside the Email Manager section of your Hepsia Hosting Control Panel to forward the email addresses set up on our server to a third-party address. Inside the very same area you will also be able to see how many of your email addresses are forwarded and exactly where the incoming messages are going. You're able to enable or disable a forwarding account whenever you want and throughout the process you may also choose if a copy of the messages has to be kept on our servers or not. Although this option isn't a must have, it is very valuable because you will have a backup of the emails on our end in the event that anything happens with the third-party email address. Even when they've got a momentary problem, you run the risk of losing e-mail messages as once our server receives and forwards an e-mail message, absolutely nothing will be kept on our end unless you selected a backup to be kept.
