When you've got an e-mail and you activate forwarding for it, all incoming e-mails will be sent to a third-party mailbox of your choosing. The sender will not be aware of this and he will send the e-mail to the original address. This feature is useful in case you have multiple Internet sites, each one with a unique e-mail for contact, for example. By forwarding all messages to just a single e-mail, it will be simpler for you to keep track and never neglect an e-mail because you have overlooked to check a certain email. For those who have a business, you are able to use this function to monitor the communication received by various departments. Another advantage is that you are able to make use of an official email address for some needs, let’s say admin@your-domain.com, and you can get all e-mail messages sent to it in your personal email address. It's also possible to forward email messages from one e-mail address to numerous ones, in case a number of people needs to be involved in the email communication.
E-mail Forwarding in Cloud Hosting
The Hepsia Control Panel, which is provided with all the cloud hosting plans, will help you forward any e-mail address inside the account to a different one with ease. This can be done either during the creation of a new email address or whenever you want afterwards if you decide that you require this function. During the process, you will be able to decide if you want a backup of the messages to be kept on the server. In this way, you'll have a backup and you'll steer clear of the probability to lose an e-mail if the forwarding is to an external address, which is temporarily unavailable. This feature can be activated and disabled at any moment, though if you use e-mail for critical matters, it is far better to use it, as no records of the e-mails are maintained on the server if the option is not enabled. In case you decide that you don't need forwarding any more, it will take only a click to deactivate it.
E-mail Forwarding in Semi-dedicated Servers
For people with a semi-dedicated server through us, you'll need a few clicks in the Email Manager section of your Hepsia Hosting Control Panel to forward the e-mail addresses set up on our server to a third-party e-mail address. In the exact same section you will also have the ability to see how many of your email addresses are forwarded and where the inbound e-mails are going. You're able to enable or deactivate a forwarding account whenever you want and during the process you could also choose whether a backup copy of the messages should be maintained in our system or not. Even if this feature is not a requirement, it is useful because you will have a copy of the emails on our end in case that anything occurs with the third-party mailbox. Even when they've got just a momentary problem, you run the risk of losing e-mail messages as when our system receives and forwards a message, absolutely nothing will be kept on our end unless you chosen a copy to be kept.
