The term e-mail forwarding refers to an e-mail message being forwarded from a recipient address to a third-party address which is not listed as a recipient. For instance, a client sends out an e-mail from their personal mail box to support@domain.com and as much as they're concerned, this is the single receiver. If there's an active forwarding, the e-mail may be sent to owner@domain.com, for example, although the customer in no way meant the e-mail to be sent there and may not be aware of the existence of this mailbox. There are several purposes for applying such forwarding. For instance, if you have several e-mail addresses you are able to forward all of them to a single mail box, which can make monitoring e-mails simpler and will permit you to get e-mails and respond to them on time. The feature may also be used in case a number of individuals should get a copy of an e-mail message delivered to a general email address.

E-mail Forwarding in Shared Hosting

In case you have a shared hosting package with our company and you create e-mail addresses inside your account, you'll be able to forward it with only a couple of clicks to any other e-mail address of your choice. The feature can be activated whenever you create a new email address or any time afterwards and deactivated just as quickly any time you change your mind. This is done from the Hepsia Hosting Control Panel in which you will control your account. You will also have the option to choose if a backup of the inbound emails will remain on our servers or not. The main benefit of this option is that you will always have a copy on your server if anything happens with the other mailbox or maybe if it is not active for some reason at the time a message is forwarded. If the feature not active, a message will be received, forwarded and deleted from our system no matter if the remote e-mail address is functioning or not, so it generally is a wise decision for it to be active just to be prepared.
