The term email forwarding describes a message being forwarded from a recipient address to a third-party address that is not mentioned as a receiver. For instance, a customer sends out an e-mail from their private mail box to and as far as they're concerned, it is the only receiver. If there is an active forwarding, the message may be sent to, for example, although the customer never meant the message to be sent there and may not be aware of the existence of this mail box. There are various reasons for using such forwarding. For instance, if you've got numerous email addresses you're able to forward them all to a single email address, which can make checking e-mails easier and will permit you to collect messages and respond to them quickly. The feature could also be used in case a number of individuals should get a copy of an email message sent to a general email address.

E-mail Forwarding in Cloud Hosting

It is really simple to create forwarding for just about any e-mail set up in a cloud hosting account with our company. This can be done either when you create a new e-mail address using your Hepsia Hosting Control Panel, or at any time afterwards because the forwarding can be activated and disabled for any existing mailbox with a few clicks. You can also decide if a backup copy of the incoming messages will be maintained on our servers, a pretty handy option. This will be a fail-safe in case that the remote email address is not available for whatever cause, not mentioning that you will have always a copy of all of the messages. When this feature is not activated for a given e-mail on our end, an inbound e-mail will be received and sent forward, so absolutely no record of it will remain on our server. In case the remote mailbox is unavailable for the moment, you will lose this email.

E-mail Forwarding in Semi-dedicated Hosting

For people with a semi-dedicated server from us, it will take a couple of clicks inside the Email Manager part of your Hepsia Hosting Control Panel to forward any of the e-mail addresses configured on our end to a third-party address. In the same section you will also be able to see how many of your email addresses are forwarded and exactly where the inbound e-mails are going. It is easy to enable or deactivate a forwarding account at any time and during the process you may as well choose if a copy of the emails should be maintained on our servers or not. Although this option isn't a necessity, it's very handy because you will have a copy of the emails on our end just in case that anything happens with the third-party mailbox. Even when they've got only a short-term problem, you run the risk of losing emails as when our system gets and forwards a message, nothing at all will be kept on our end if you haven’t chosen a backup to be kept.
