What's e-mail forwarding? Just how does it work? In what circumstances is it really useful?
The term e-mail forwarding refers to an email message being forwarded from a receiving address towards a third-party address that is not mentioned as a receiver. For instance, a client sends an email from their personal mailbox to email@example.com and as much as they are involved, this is actually the only receiver. If there is an active forwarding, the message can be sent to firstname.lastname@example.org, for example, although the customer in no way meant the email to be sent there and may not be aware of the existence of this mail box. There are several purposes for making use of such forwarding. For instance, if you've got many emails you'll be able to forward each of them to a one email address, which will make checking email messages simpler and will allow you to get e-mails and respond quickly. The feature may also be used in case a number of individuals should receive a copy of an email message sent to a standard mail box.
E-mail Forwarding in Cloud Web Hosting
In case you have a cloud web hosting
plan with our company and you create an e-mail address in your account, you will be able to forward it with no more than a couple of mouse clicks to any other address of your choice. The feature can be enabled when you set up a brand new email address or whenever you want later on and disabled just as easily in case you change your mind. This is done with the Hepsia Hosting Control Panel in which you can control your account. You will also have the option to choose if a backup of the inbound emails will stay on our servers or not. The main benefit of this option is that you will always have a copy on your server if something happens with the other mailbox or maybe if it's not active for some reason at the time an e-mail is forwarded. If the option is not active, an email will be received, forwarded and removed from our servers no matter if the remote email address is working or not, so it is actually a good idea for it to be enabled just to be on the safe side.
E-mail Forwarding in Semi-dedicated Hosting
Using a semi-dedicated server
plan through our company, it will take just a few clicks to forward any email addresses managed inside the account to a third-party email address. It is possible to achieve this through the feature-rich Email Manager part of the Hepsia Hosting Control Panel and during this process you can also decide if a backup of your email messages must be maintained on our servers or not. The aforementioned feature is optional, however rather valuable because you will get a backup of your incoming messages, so even if something happens with the other email address, you'll not lose any data. You'll be able to activate or deactivate the forwarding for any mailbox at any moment and forward the e-mails to various email addresses if you would like. You'll have the ability to check out a listing of all of the email addresses that are being forwarded and exactly where the emails are being sent to.
