What's e-mail forwarding? How exactly does it work? In what occasions is it particularly useful?
The term email forwarding describes an email being forwarded from a recipient address to a third-party address that's not mentioned as a recipient. For instance, a customer sends an e-mail from their personal mailbox to firstname.lastname@example.org and as much as they're involved, this is the single receiver. If there is an active forwarding, the message could be forwarded to email@example.com, for example, even though the customer never intended the message to be sent there and may not be aware about the presence of this mailbox. There are several reasons for working with such forwarding. For example, if you have several emails you are able to forward all of them to a sole email address, which can make keeping track of emails easier and allows you to get e-mails and respond in a timely manner. The feature may also be used in case a number of people should receive a copy of an e mail message delivered to a standard mailbox.
E-mail Forwarding in Website Hosting
The Hepsia Control Panel, that comes with all of our website hosting
plans, will let you forward any e-mail address in the account to another one without any difficulty. You can do this either during the creation of a new mailbox or whenever you want later on in case you choose that you will need this feature. During the process, you'll be able to consider if you want a duplicate of the messages to be maintained on the server. This way, you'll have a backup and you will steer clear of the probability to lose an e-mail message if the forwarding is to an external address, which can be briefly unavailable. This option can be enabled and disabled whenever you want, but if you use emails for important matters, it is best to use it, as no data of the e-mails will be maintained on the server when the option is not enabled. If you decide that you don't need forwarding anymore, it takes only a mouse click to disable it.
E-mail Forwarding in Semi-dedicated Hosting
The feature-rich Email Manager interface within the Hepsia Hosting Control Panel, which will come with all the Linux semi-dedicated hosting
, will assist you to forward any e-mail that you make with the account to one particular or multiple additional email address with only a few mouse clicks. You'll be capable to view a list of all email addresses that you have, those that are forwarded plus where they are forwarded to. This feature can be activated and disabled whenever you want and you can furthermore decide on whether a backup of the inbound emails must be maintained on our servers or not. Although this feature is completely optional, it could be easier if you make the most of it, because you will have a backup of your e-mails if there is some kind of issue with the remote mail server. Regardless of whether there is a short-term problem and no e-mails are lost on our end, you might still not receive a forwarded message if it was relayed by our servers throughout the downtime.
