With an email forwarding activated for a specific e-mail address, all incoming e-mail messages will be sent to a third-party e-mail address that you've chosen although the latter won't be in the list of recipients and the sender will not be informed exactly where their email goes. Feel free to use such a function if you have a number of email addresses as it will be more convenient to receive all incoming e-mails in a single mailbox rather than signing in and out of numerous ones on a regular basis or setting up a number of mailboxes in an email client. In case you manage a business or maybe an enterprise, the e-mail forwarding is also a solution to look at all e-mails obtained by numerous departments for improved coordination. You can also use this feature the other way round - an e-mail sent to a general mailbox can be forwarded to multiple people.

E-mail Forwarding in Web Hosting

In case you have a web hosting package with us and you set up email addresses in your account, you will be able to forward it with just a few mouse clicks to another e-mail address of your choosing. The option can be enabled when you create a new mailbox or whenever you want later and disabled just as easily any time 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 decide if a duplicate of the incoming messages will remain on our servers or not. The benefit of this feature is basically that you will always have a backup on your server if anything occurs with the other email address or if it isn't active for some reason during the time an e-mail message is forwarded. When the option is not enabled, a message will be received, forwarded and deleted from our servers even if the remote e-mail is functioning or not, so it might be a good idea for it to be enabled just to be on the safe side.

E-mail Forwarding in Semi-dedicated Servers

For people with a semi-dedicated server through us, it will take a couple of mouse clicks inside the Email Manager area of your Hepsia Hosting Control Panel to forward any of the e-mail addresses created on our system to a third-party address. In the very same area you will also have the ability to observe how many of your mailboxes are forwarded and exactly where the incoming e-mails are going. You're able to enable or disable a forwarding account whenever you want and throughout the process you can also choose if a backup copy of the messages needs to be maintained in our system or not. Although this feature isn't a requirement, it is practical since you will have a backup copy of the messages on our end just in case that anything happens with the third-party email address. Even if they have only a short-term issue, you risk losing e-mails as when our system receives and forwards an email, nothing at all will be kept on our end unless you chosen a backup to be saved.
