If you have an email and you enable forwarding for it, all incoming e-mails will be sent to a third-party email address of your choosing. The e-mail sender will not be aware of this and he will be sending the email only to the first address. This type of feature is useful in case you have a number of websites, each with a unique e-mail address for contact, for instance. By forwarding all e-mails to one particular e-mail, it will be easier for you to keep track and never neglect an e-mail as you have neglected to check a certain email. For those who have an enterprise, you are able to take advantage of this function to check the emails received by various departments. An additional advantage is that you're able to make use of an official e-mail address for some purposes, let’s say admin@your-domain.com, and you can now get all of the emails sent to it in your private mailbox. In addition, you can forward e-mail messages from one e-mail to multiple ones, in case a number of individuals should be involved in the email conversation.
E-mail Forwarding in Hosting
In case you have a hosting plan with us and you set up an email address in your account, you will be able to forward it with only a few mouse clicks to any other e-mail address of your choosing. The feature can be activated when you set up a new mailbox or at any time afterwards and deactivated just as easily in case you change your mind. This can be done from the Hepsia Hosting Control Panel where you can handle your account. In addition, you will have the option to decide if a copy of the incoming e-mails will stay on our servers or not. The benefit of this feature is that you will always have a copy on your end if anything occurs with the other email address or maybe if it's not active for reasons unknown at the time an email message is forwarded. When the option is not enabled, a message will be received, forwarded and removed from our system no matter if the remote e-mail address is operating or not, so it is usually a wise decision to have it active just to be prepared.
E-mail Forwarding in Semi-dedicated Servers
If you have a semi-dedicated server from our company, it will take you only a few clicks inside the Email Manager area of your Hepsia Hosting Control Panel to forward the e-mails created on our end to a third-party address. In the same area you will additionally be able to observe how many of your email addresses are forwarded and where the inbound messages are going. It is easy to enable or deactivate a forwarding account at any moment and during the process you can also choose whether a copy of the emails has to be maintained in our system or not. Even if this option isn't a necessity, it is helpful because you will have a backup copy of the emails on our end just in case that something occurs with the third-party email address. Even if they've got only a short-term issue, you run the risk of losing e-mail messages as the moment our server gets and forwards a message, nothing at all will be maintained on our end if you haven’t selected a backup to be stored.
