The term email forwarding refers to an email being forwarded from a receiving address towards a third-party address that isn't listed as a recipient. For example, a customer sends out an email from their personal mail box to support@domain.com and as far as they're concerned, this is actually the single recipient. When there is an active forwarding, the message can be forwarded to owner@domain.com, for example, even though the customer never meant the e-mail to be sent there and may not be aware about the presence of this mail box. There are different purposes for applying such forwarding. For example, if you've got several email addresses you can forward each of them to a single mailbox, which can make checking email messages less difficult and will allow you to get e-mails and respond timely. The function can also be used if a number of people should get a copy of an e-mail message sent to a general email address.

E-mail Forwarding in Shared Hosting

If you have a shared hosting plan with our company and you set up email addresses inside your account, you'll be able to forward it with no more than a couple of mouse clicks to any other address of your preference. The feature can be activated whenever you set up a brand new email address or whenever you want afterwards and disabled just as quickly in case you change your mind. This can be done with the Hepsia Hosting Control Panel in which you will manage your account. You will also have the option to choose whether a duplicate of the incoming emails will remain on our servers or not. The main benefit of this feature is basically that you will always have a backup on your end if anything happens with the other email address or maybe it is not active for some reason during the time a message is forwarded. When the feature not enabled, an e-mail will be received, forwarded and deleted from our servers no matter if the remote email is functioning or not, so it can be quite a good idea to have it enabled just to be prepared.

E-mail Forwarding in Semi-dedicated Hosting

Using a semi-dedicated server package from us, it takes only a few clicks to forward one of your email addresses managed from the account to any third-party mailbox. It will be possible to achieve this in the feature-rich Email Manager part of the Hepsia Hosting Control Panel and during the process you can also choose if a copy of your emails should be maintained on our servers or not. The last feature is optional, however rather helpful because you will have a backup of your incoming e-mails, so even if something happens with the other email address, you won't lose any information. You can enable or disable the forwarding for any email address at any time and forward the messages to several addresses if you wish. You'll be able to check out a list of all email addresses that are now being forwarded and also where the emails are being forwarded to.
