What's e-mail forwarding? How exactly does it function? In which occasions is it particularly useful?
With an email forwarding activated for a specific e-mail address, all of the inbound messages will be forwarded to a third-party e-mail address that you've picked even though the latter will not be in the list of recipients and also, the email sender won't be informed where their e-mail will go. You can use this type of function if you have a number of email addresses since it will likely be easier to get all of the inbound messages in just a single email address as an alternative to logging in and out of various ones all the time or configuring a variety of mailboxes within an email app. If you run a company or an organization, the email forwarding is also a way to check out all emails received by numerous divisions for improved coordination. You can also use this feature the other way round - a message sent to a general email address can be sent to multiple people.
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 will be able to forward it with just a couple of clicks to any other e-mail address of your choice. The option can be enabled whenever you set up a new email address or whenever you want later on and disabled just as easily any time you change your mind. This is done from the Hepsia Hosting Control Panel where you will handle your account. You will also have the option to choose if a duplicate of the incoming messages will remain on our servers or not. The main advantage of this option is basically that you will always have a copy on your end if anything occurs with the other mailbox or maybe it isn't active for some reason at the time an email message is forwarded. If the feature not active, a message will be received, forwarded and removed from our servers regardless of whether the remote e-mail is working or not, so it generally is a wise decision for it to be enabled just to be prepared.
E-mail Forwarding in Semi-dedicated Hosting
The feature-rich Email Manager tool in your Hepsia Hosting Control Panel, which will come with all of our Linux semi-dedicated hosting
, will allow you to forward any email address that you make with the account to one or multiple additional addresses with just a number of clicks. Additionally, you will have the ability to see a listing of all mailboxes that you've got, those that are forwarded plus where they are forwarded to. The option can be enabled and disabled whenever you want and you can now furthermore decide on whether a copy of the inbound emails must be kept on our servers or not. Although this option is not necessary, it might be more convenient if you make the most of it, as you will get a backup of the messages if there's some trouble with the remote mail server. Regardless of whether there is a temporary issue and no email messages are lost on our end, you may still not get a forwarded email in case it was relayed by our servers throughout the downtime.
