Email Forwarding - find in which cases it can be helpful and how to enable it from your website hosting account.
The term e-mail forwarding refers to an email being forwarded from a recipient address to a third-party address which is not listed as a recipient. For example, a client sends an email from their private mail box to firstname.lastname@example.org and as much as they are concerned, this is actually the only recipient. When there is an active forwarding, the e-mail might be forwarded to email@example.com, for instance, although the customer never meant the message to be sent there and might not be aware about the existence of this mailbox. There are various purposes for applying such forwarding. For example, if you have a number of e-mail addresses you can forward all of them to a sole email address, which can make keeping track of emails less difficult and allows you to collect messages and respond to them on time. The feature could also be used if a number of individuals should get a copy of an e mail message sent to a standard email address.
E-mail Forwarding in Cloud Website Hosting
The Hepsia Control Panel, that comes with all of the cloud website hosting
plans, will help you to forward any email address inside the account to a different one with ease. This can be done either during the creation of a new mailbox or at any time afterwards if you decide that you need this feature. During the process, you will be able to decide if you want a copy 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 outside address, that's momentarily unavailable. This feature can be enabled and deactivated at any moment, and if you use e-mails for important matters, it is advisable to use it, because no data of the email messages will be maintained on the server if the option is not enabled. Any time you decide that you do not need forwarding any more, it takes simply a mouse click to disable it.
E-mail Forwarding in Semi-dedicated Servers
The feature-rich Email Manager interface in your Hepsia Hosting Control Panel, which comes with all of our Linux semi-dedicated hosting plan
, will help you to forward any email that you set up with the account to one particular or several different addresses with just a couple of clicks. Additionally, you will have the ability to see a list of all of the email addresses that you have, which of them are forwarded plus exactly where they are forwarded to. This feature can be activated and deactivated at any moment and you can furthermore decide on whether a copy of the inbound email messages must be maintained on our servers or not. Even though this feature is not essential, it may be far more convenient if you take advantage of it, because you will possess a backup of your e-mails when there is some problem with the remote email server. Even if there's a short-term issue and no e-mails are lost on our system, you might still not get a forwarded message if it was relayed by our servers during the downtime.
