Discover more about e-mail forwarding, the way it operates and in which cases it is helpful to have it enabled.
If you have an e-mail address and you activate forwarding for it, all incoming messages will be sent to a third-party email address that you pick. The email sender will not be aware of this and he will be sending the message to the first address. This kind of function is useful for people with several web sites, each one with a different e-mail address for contact, for instance. By forwarding all e-mails to one particular e-mail address, it will be easier for you to keep track and not pass up a message as you have overlooked to check a given e-mail address. If you run an enterprise, you can employ this function to monitor the e-mails received by various departments. Another advantage is the fact that it is possible to use an official address for some reasons, let’s say firstname.lastname@example.org, and you can now get all of the emails sent to it inside your personal mailbox. It's also possible to forward messages from a single email address to multiple ones, if a number of individuals needs to be involved with the e-mail conversation.
E-mail Forwarding in Shared Web Hosting
The Hepsia Control Panel, which comes with all of the shared web hosting
packages, will let you forward any e-mail inside the account to a different one effortlessly. This can be done either throughout the creation of a brand new mailbox or at any time afterwards if you choose that you want this function. During the process, you will be able to decide if you prefer a backup of the emails to be kept on the server. This way, you'll have a backup and you will avoid the possibility to lose an e-mail if the forwarding is to an exterior address, which is momentarily unavailable. This feature can be activated and disabled at any time, though if you use e-mails for critical matters, it is advisable to use it, because no records of the emails are kept on the server in case the option is not active. If you decide that you do not need forwarding any longer, it will take only a click to disable it.
E-mail Forwarding in Semi-dedicated Hosting
The feature-rich Email Manager tool in your Hepsia Hosting Control Panel, which comes with all of our Linux semi-dedicated package
, will let you forward any e-mail address you make with the account to one or a number of other email address with only a number of clicks. You will additionally be able to view a number of all of the email addresses you have, which ones are forwarded and also where they are forwarded to. This feature can be enabled and deactivated at any moment and you can also select whether a copy of the inbound e-mails should be kept on our system or not. Although this feature is optional, it might be more convenient once you take advantage of it, as you will have a copy of the e-mails when there is some kind of issue with the remote email server. Regardless of whether there's a temporary issue and no e-mails are lost on our end, you might still not receive a forwarded email in the event it was relayed by our servers during the downtime.
