What's e-mail forwarding? Just how does it work? In what circumstances is it really useful?
When you've got an e-mail and you activate forwarding for it, all of the inbound messages will be sent to a third-party mailbox that you pick. The e-mail sender won't be aware of this and he will be sending the email to the original address. This type of feature is useful in case you have several sites, each with a different e-mail for contact, for example. By forwarding all emails to just a single email address, it will be simpler for you to keep a record and not neglect a message as you have neglected to check a given e-mail address. In case you have a company, you’re able to use this function to watch the e-mails received by different divisions. Another advantage is that you are able to use an official address for some needs, let’s say email@example.com, and you can get all e-mail messages sent to it inside your personal email address. It's also possible to forward e-mail messages from one email address to multiple ones, if a number of individuals needs to be involved with the e-mail conversation.
E-mail Forwarding in Shared Web Hosting
The Hepsia Control Panel, which is provided with all of the shared web hosting
plans, will let you forward any email address in the account to a second one without difficulty. You can do this either throughout the creation of a brand new email address or whenever you want later if you choose that you want this function. During the process, you are able to consider if you need a backup of the messages to be kept on the server. In this way, you will have a backup and you'll prevent the possibility to lose an e-mail if the forwarding is to an exterior address, that's momentarily inaccessible. This option can be enabled and disabled whenever you want, and if you use e-mails for critical matters, it is far better to use it, as no records of the emails will be kept on the server when the option is not active. In case you determine that you do not need forwarding anymore, it will take simply a click to disable it.
E-mail Forwarding in Semi-dedicated Hosting
For people with a semi-dedicated server
from us, it will take simply a few clicks inside the Email Manager area of your Hepsia Hosting Control Panel to forward the emails set up on our server to a third-party address. In the exact same section you will also have the ability to see how many of your email addresses are forwarded and exactly where the inbound messages are going. It is possible to enable or disable a forwarding account at any time and throughout the process you could also choose whether a backup of the email messages needs to be kept in our system or not. Although this feature is not a must have, it is handy as you will get a copy of the messages on our end just in case that anything occurs with the third-party email address. Even if they have a short-term issue, you risk losing e-mails as the moment our system gets and forwards an e-mail message, nothing will be kept on our end unless you selected a copy to be kept.
