What's e-mail forwarding? How exactly does it work? In what circumstances is it particularly helpful?
With the email forwarding enabled for any given e-mail address, all inbound e-mail messages will be forwarded to a third-party e-mail address which you have picked although the latter will not be in the list of recipients and also, the sender will never be aware exactly where their message will go. Feel free to use such a function if you have multiple email addresses since it will likely be far easier to receive all incoming e-mails in one email address rather than signing in and out of various ones continuously or setting up a number of mailboxes within an e-mail application. In case you have a company or perhaps an enterprise, the email forwarding is a solution to look at all emails received by different divisions for better coordination. You can also make use of this function the opposite way round - an email sent to a standard mailbox can be sent to multiple people.
E-mail Forwarding in Shared Website Hosting
It is really simple to configure forwarding for every e-mail address created in a shared website hosting
account from us. This can be achieved either while you make a brand new e-mail address via your Hepsia Hosting Control Panel, or at any moment afterwards since the forwarding may be activated and disabled for every active mailbox with only a couple of mouse clicks. It is also possible to choose if a copy of the inbound messages will be kept on our servers, which is a very useful option. This will be a fail-safe if the remote email address is not available for some reason, not mentioning that you will have always a backup of all e-mails. If this option is not activated for a specific e-mail address on our end, an incoming email will be received and sent forward, so absolutely no record of it will remain on our server. If the remote mailbox is down temporarily, you'll lose this email.
E-mail Forwarding in Semi-dedicated Servers
For people with a semi-dedicated server
from us, it will take you only a couple of clicks in the Email Manager area of your Hepsia Hosting Control Panel to forward any of the emails configured on our end to a third-party e-mail address. In the same section you will additionally be able to see how many of your mailboxes are forwarded and exactly where the inbound e-mails are going. You can activate or deactivate a forwarding account at any moment and throughout the process you may also choose whether a backup copy of the e-mails has to be maintained on our servers or not. Although this feature is not a requirement, it's very valuable because you will have a backup of the emails on our end just in case that anything occurs with the third-party email address. Even when they've got simply a momentary problem, you run the risk of losing emails as the moment our server gets and forwards an e-mail, absolutely nothing will be stored on our end unless you selected a backup to be maintained.
